The Review

Language: Hindi


Genre: Action/Crime


Director:  A R Murugadoss


Cast: Sonakshi Sinha, Anurag Kashyap, Konkana Sen Sharma and Amit Sadh


AR Murugadoss’s attempt to make a female-centric action movie, a remake of the Tamil hit Mouna Guru.


What is it about

Akira (Sonakshi Sinha), hailing from a small village in Jodhpur chooses to train in Karate rather than Kathak. She distorts the face of an acid attacker with his own acid and is later shown in a college in Mumbai where she beats up bullies. She somehow manages to get herself into trouble embroiled in abduction, murder and police. A corrupt cop Rane (Anurag Kashyap) is behind her life as she has witnesses something she shouldn’t. The only support she gets is from a pregnant lady police Rabiya Sultan (Konkana Sen Sharma).


Why you should watch it

Watch it for some action entertainment provided by Murugadoss. Expect a lot of kicks and punches by Sonakshi. This movie is more about action and less about thrill, just replace Salman or Akshay with a Sonakshi- and you get a full action dhamaal.
