MUST READ : Holiday Movie Review
Contrary to the Box Office verdict, ‘Holiday’, did not receive good reviews. The reviewer of a prominent media house said, ‘Holiday’ gives Akshay Kumar a chance to return to full combat mode. Till he’s going bang bang, he’s all right; the moment he gets romancing and joshing, he slides. So does the film.
The film is the official remake of Tamil film “Thupakki” and is directed by A R Murugadoss. He himself had directed “Thuppakki” as well.
Well, regardless of what the critics say, the audience’s reaction and the box office collections clearly state that the film is a hit !
