Movie Review

Rating: 7/10

Synopsis: When a powerful enemy threatens to destroy India with his technological prowess, two soldiers must use their tact and uninhibited strength to save the day. Captains Rakesh aka Rocky (Akshay Kumar) and Firoz aka Freddy (Tiger Shroff) are the Indian army’s finest, tasked with tackling a tech-savvy villain aiming to unleash AI-powered chaos.


“Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” is a high-octane action film that wastes no time getting straight into the action. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, the film opens with the antagonist setting the stage for a dire, tech-infused threat against India, immediately establishing high stakes and a sense of urgency.

Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff play the lead roles with a mix of bravado and camaraderie. Their characters, Rocky and Freddy, are portrayed as brave and patriotic soldiers, albeit a bit rebellious. The chemistry between the two is highlighted through their humorous banter, with Tiger’s Freddy frequently poking fun at Rocky’s age and Akshay’s Rocky returning the jabs about Freddy’s acting skills. This interplay provides a lighthearted counterpoint to the intense action sequences.

The film’s first half is packed with adrenaline-pumping action and quick-paced storytelling. The narrative effectively builds suspense around the tech-savvy villain and the impending threat he poses. The humor, though pedestrian at times, works well to establish the dynamics between the characters and add a layer of entertainment.

Tiger Shroff stands out with his brooding looks and chiseled physique, holding his own against the seasoned Akshay Kumar. The film also does justice to its leading ladies, giving them significant roles. Manushi Chillar, as Captain Misha, delivers some impressive action sequences, while Alaya F, as the nerdy Dr. Pam, brings comic relief with her impeccable timing. Prithviraj Sukumaran’s Kabir, however, comes off as too polished to be truly menacing, and Sonakshi Sinha’s brief appearance as Captain Priya feels underutilized.

While the first half sets high expectations with its build-up and an intriguing twist at the interval, the second half struggles to maintain the same level of engagement. The solutions to the complex threats feel overly simplified, and the film leans heavily on patriotic rhetoric set against a backdrop of geopolitical tension involving India, Pakistan, and China. Despite this, the relentless action and innovative stunts keep the energy high.

Marcin Laskawiec’s cinematography captures the scale of the war-like situations effectively, immersing the audience in the tension and chaos. Vishal Mishra’s musical score, especially the track “Mast Malang,” adds a refreshing touch to the film. The extensive use of computer graphics for stunts, explosions, and car chases is well-executed and blends seamlessly into the action sequences.

Ali Abbas Zafar, known for his explosive entertainers, showcases his expertise in crafting engaging action films. “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” succeeds as an entertaining potboiler, delivering heart-pounding action, cheeky humor, and maintaining a brisk pace with hardly a dull moment.

“Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” is an action-packed entertainer that delivers on its promise of thrills and fun. While the second half may not live up to the suspenseful build-up of the first, the film’s dynamic performances, particularly by Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff, combined with its relentless action sequences, make it a worthwhile watch for fans of the genre.
