Holiday A Soldier Is Never Off Duty
Report dated 05/06/2014 @ 11:58 AM

Holiday  A Soldier Is Never Off Duty Cast: Akshay Kumar, Sonakshi Sinha, Govinda, Sumeet Raghavan, Farhad Daruwala, Gireesh Sahedev, Zakir Hussain

Direction: A.R. Murugadoss

Gagged men tumble out of his closet. Tied up terrorists and 'sleeper cells' too. Hell's bells, they're far from 'sleeping beauties'. But then they have to make our brave-heart Virat Bakshi (Akshay) look good. And he sure does. In his camouflage suits and his neon bermudas. Whether he's on a secret mission (as Defence Intelligence Agent), or romancing his boisterous 'boxer' belle Saiba (Sonakshi). All the while coaching his cop buddy on how to 'crack a case', or saluting his boss sergeant (Govinda, in a cutesy cameo).

Virat's on holiday in Mumbai - 'ladki dekhne' - where a terror blast kills school kids in a bus. A suspect is caught and it leads to series of more suspects who're part of a devious demolition plan by - Sleeper Cells (trained terrorists guised as common men in society). His holiday turns into havoc and Virat becomes a one-man army - who has to raze the terror outfit and salvage Mumbai from exploding into flames. Nothing can break this lion-hearted soldier who upholds his valour, wardi and values - like a true jawan.

Murgadoss' film (remake of the Tamil 'Thupakki') offers an intelligent plot, with blows, blasts and raw bone-cracking action (Greg Powell). It triggers a fear that anyone from your paanwala to pizza-delivery boy could be a 'closet' terrorist (Beware!).

While the core plot is compelling and finely directed, the side-tracks - like bombs needing to be deactivated and the romantic angle, waste screen-time and the songs infiltrate the plot too often. The film is too long and needs a taut edit. It has flaws too, but doesn't fail to entertain.

Akshay's stunts are jaw-dropping; he's in top form and impressively leads the show without much support from his squadron of actors. Farhad (the lead villain) doesn't leave much impact; and Sonakshi slides in for the song and dance.

This one applauds the jawans who live in the jaws of death, and is a 'wake up' call for all the 'sleepers' that abound. Bravo!
