Director – Neeraj Pandey
The film is based on a real life event in the 1980s where a handful of swindlers dressed as cops and CBI/income tax officials looted many businessmen and politicians. Surprisingly, even if at many parts the film doesn’t make sense – you can feel like – ‘Ok. Dude. Is Indian intelligence THAT stupid?’ But you will enjoy the film! Like – really. Its fun, the dialogues are great, acting is good and obviously that’s not really a doubt. I mean, there is Akshay Kumar (who makes stupid films in which he acts well), Anupam Kher (who is one veteran you always look up to), Jimmy Shergill (who definitely knows acting) and Manoj Bajpayee (I save the best for the last – I love him). Its fast paced – so it doesn’t give you time to get bored or even think. An entertaining drama thriller as it is, I don’t regret watching Special Chhabis.
