Hey, are you a fan of extreme slow-motion ‘thrills’ like – Water splashing from the ‘hero’s mouth when he suddenly makes a bungee jump from a water body.
Oh come on! Are you not a fan of the spectacular view of miniscule broken glass pieces and red chilies flying in the air leisurely?
Yes, BOSS is all about these, and as an additional bonus, you can see Akki’s 32 teeth with a 1.5 inch jaw every 10 minutes, which seem bigger than the ‘B’’O’’S’’S’ rings that he wears.
BOSS is an extremely predictable tale! A teenager (with a dark complexion) prone to violence is detested by his peace-seeking father Satyakanth (Mithun Chakraborthy) and is disowned. BigBoss (Danny Denzongpa), the transport King there becomes the boy’s godfather and names him ‘Boss’.
After 15 years…he becomes an invincible contract goonda (with a very fair complexion.Oh ‘Vicco Turmeric’ ka kamal?). ‘Destiny’ brings the father to the son to give him a contract to save Shiv (the 2nd son) from the ruthless cop Ayushmann (Ronit Roy), as Shiv is in love with the 0-size-2-piece-bikini heroine (Aditi Rao Hyadri). How Boss thwarts Ayushmann with the slow motion stunts forms the rest of the movie.
There is hardly any aspect of Boss that is worth talking about. Akshay Kumar was funny only in a couple of scenes. Ronit Roy, Govind Namdeo and Sanjai Mishra were wasted. Mithun was OK. The newcomer Shiv Pandit looked like a six-pack dude patient suffering from constipation. Technically also, there is nothing much to appreciate.
It’s an amazing coincidence that BOSS has released on the eve of Bakrid, where the audiences who watch it are the ultimate ‘bakras’, where the 32 shining teeth of Akki will chew your brains ruthlessly, with the torturous movie of his.
In short, no ‘tarakki’ in Akki’s graph this year. I am afraid; BOSS is a bigger debacle than OUATIM2.
