    Boss is that rare Bollywood action film whose stars are worthy of the pedestal they're put on.

    Boss is billed as an action comedy, but it isn’t always clear what is part of the joke and what isn’t.

    Boss is a film suffering from one fundamental problem, to wit: a lack of commitment to its central purpose.

    The deafening Bollywood action comedy Boss, directed in broad, heavy strokes by Anthony D’Souza (“Blue”), is a relentless hard-sell star vehicle, a two-and-half-hour string of sledgehammer fighting and dancing sequences.

    To cut a long story short, Boss solely relies on Akshay's star power and he carries the film on his shoulders with aplomb. It's his dialoguebazi and filmygiri that make you smile, no matter how corny the one-liners. He climbs the walls at a lightning speed like a Spiderman, jumps over rooftops, trucks and makes his way in a crowded place by walking over the heads of his enemies. He makes gravity-defying stunts look believable. We particularly liked this elaborate chase sequence which looks like it's been shot in one-take. From cracking of bones to the crunching of chanas that the villain munches on, the sound effects add to the intensity of the slow-mo stunt scenes. Full Review »
