Holiday (2014) – Movie Review & Critics Rating

Holiday (2014) – Movie Review: Holiday, Remake of the hit in the South ‘Thupakki’ is just so engrossing that it keeps you bound for the 3 hours that you’ve paid for. After ages, Akshay Kumar is seen with his style of action and dialogue delivery. You will see Captain Virat Bakshi’s (Akshay’s) style of action, the kind of one you expected from him in the trailers.

The movie has an intelligent plot, the screenplay, story, dialouges and directions are by A.R. Murugadoss. He gave bollywood the first 200 crore film – Ghajini and now has again proved what is he capable of. The screenplay is crisp and perfect. The music is engaging but the song dedicated to all the soldiers, in the end, steals the show. Some songs get a little too stretched. Sonakshi Sinha is just a part of the movie because every Bollywood movie needs a female lead to flaunt. Otherwise, her presence is of no importance. 
, Holiday (2014) – Movie Review & Critics Rating
The film has some crap scenes and moments which could have been edited. Being a south remake, it has some unrealistic scenes which seem okay if Akshay Kumar performs them. The romantic track between Sonakshi Sinha and Akshay Kumar is unnecessary and has no connection with the main plot. To justify the romance there are songs which crop in and slows the pace of the movie.
However, Nobody could play Virat Bakshi better than Akshay and the supporting cast has complemented his performance. The villian, is a new comer, who shows his charm by the angry looks and good acting but there is no background given for his character. The movie leaves you with moist eyes and in a reverie. The movie never goes ‘off duty’ jusy like our Indian Soldiers. This is a must watch for , every policeman, every army officer and every family who has contributed their sons for the motherland.
