• Neither original, nor entertaining, this Boss deserves to be fired!

    The lines overall are cringe-making, and aimed at those who find a truck named ‘Behen Ki Lorry’ funny. Really, Akshay?

  • This is a fast-paced, zany, full-on masala fare. There is a tempting swagger to Akshay`s performance matched by the narration`s tidal tempo. Irresistible energy and endearing gusto underline the show`s voracious appetite for a comic kill.

  • Boss is hell bent on assaulting the eardrums and senses with a vigorous spectacle of mindless action and screeching soundtrack.
    Given the low benchmark of this genre, it’s akin to praise when I say Boss is neither as absurd as Rowdy Rathore nor as ghastly as Policegiri.

  • Boss, needless to say, is Akshay Kumar’s film all the way and there are several moments in it when he comes across as perfectly cut out for such antics.

    So when almost everything about the film is wrong, you are still not supposed to question anything. A general viewer reaction to the mediocrity of this film was ‘what else do you expect from a film like this?’ So with the frequent flow of such unapologetically self-proclaimed mindless action films, our basic expectations are so downsized that even distasteful dishes have turned easily edible.

    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.

  • This is not a movie that is worth your time and money. Spend it elsewhere.

  • A complete paisa vasool experience at the movies, Boss is an overdue treat for Akshay Kumar fans who have been waiting for him to return to his forte. A true mainstream entertainer in every sense, this Boss does pack a solid punch!

    At around 2 hours and 25 minutes, Boss is way too long. There are very few scenes that are actually funny in this supposed entertainer.

  • Akshay Kumar starrer Boss manages to indulge you in a feast of thrilling ugly action and crackling comedy with its crude and rustic premise. The film absorbs you in its tottering plot despite its puerile humor and thunderous action! Somehow even with all its blunders,because of Akshay Kumar alone Boss works. Though at points I found the film horrendously bizarre, I admittedly found myself getting entertained in several parts of the film. Giving a 2.5/5, the film is worth the price of your ticket compensating well in the enjoyment quotient, the value of every penny you put into this! Akshay Kumar single handedly saves the film from being a sore bore and that is reason enough why Boss deserves a definite shot!

    BOSS is a full-on masala entertainer that’s very clear of its intent. It is designed to magnetize lovers of desi commercial cinema and woo the BO. If you savor and relish old-school masaledaar entertainers, BOSS is sure to win you over. Watch this one — it’s a paisa vasool entertainer!

    The good news is that Boss is not as bad as some of Akshay Kumars other films. But if you leave those abysmal standards aside, it is still a lousy film with an asinine story and that is the bad news.

    ‘Boss’ just reeks of lazy filmmaking.

  • Full-on timepass!

  • If you are an Akshay Kumar fan and appreciate his comic timing, watch this one. But if action is not your favourite genre, you have the full danger of coming out feeling as battered and beaten as one of those innumerable goons in the film.

    Boss is a typical masala flick with clichés and we mostly see what we expected; nothing fresh. There won’t be many surprises in the film. The point is most masala entertainers tend to be this way. You may find yourself laughing a little at a few silly one-liners and so on but there is nothing new to lookout in the film.

  • Boss expects you to laugh in the face of amazing stupidity. The jokes would struggle to make a guy attached to a nitrous oxide cylinder budge a facial muscle. The highlight of the film is a joke where Boss saves a woman and bestows his brotherly affection towards her by naming his truck ‘Behen ki lorry’.

    Boss is an entertainer all the way. It will keep all those associated with it smiling. Business in single-screen cinemas and ‘B’ and ‘C’ class centres will particularly be very good.

    Despite being an age-old cinema, Akshay Kumar’s Boss will find its takers among the ones who have been making films like Chennai Express record-breaking hits. The movie for the others will prove to be highly mediocre.

    Riveting and revitalizing, the film deserves to be seen at least once.

  • The only bold move in an otherwise smug, by-the-numbers movie is the absence of a romantic interest for Boss. Akshay Kumar’s XXL-sized comic timing serves him well in some of the action comedy sequences, but fitness levels can never replace genuine acting skills. The rest of the cast picks up their paycheques, and only Ronit Roy seems to be making an effort to be serious amidst the clowning.

    Boss, in all fairness, isn’t appalling by Kumar’s standards, and that’s the best thing that can be said about it. The director seems to have some sense of how to tell a story, even though it’s largely functional.

  • What you’ll get in the film is lots of Akshay Kumar and a few amusing moments. What you’ll have to endure for that is the entire film. Do the math.

    I’ve had my fill with these South Indian action-comedy remakes and I suspect you have too. But it is said the customer is the boss and it is ultimately your decision to buy a ticket or not. If Akki slapping around a few people makes you feel any better, go for it.
