Boss is a typical Bollywood masala entertainment film. It works on the similar plot like other movies of the same genre do. Anthony D’ Souza who directed one of the big budget Bollywood film named “Blue” in 2009. This time also concentrates on more the budget side and less on making the film better. Boss is a predictable drama and the supporting cast of the film is absolutely neglected. Film relies solely Akshay Kumar, he performs well we want film also to work for us along his performance. Khiladi guy has done so many action films but nothing much has changed in his films with time.
Satyakant Shastri (Mithun Chakraborty) wants to make both his sons decent guys. His elder son Boss (Akshay Kumar) every time somehow entangles into fighting with some boys and eventually becomes a rogue king. He is guided and raised by Big Boss (Danny Denzongpa) after his father abandons him. His younger brother Shiv (Shiv Pandit) falls in love with Ankita (Aditi Rao Hydari) in no time. Ankita’s father Ayushman Thakur (Ronit Roy) is a bad cop who takes Shiv into custody and puts wrong charges on him. How Boss settles all this, that’s what movie is all about.
There isn’t twist or turns in the film. It’s a straight forward drama which is remake of Malayalam film Pokkiri Raja. There are numerous fighting sequences which are quiet common in such films; in this one it seems more than required. Aditi Rao Hydari is wasted as a character. She looks good only in bikini. Shiv Pandit also has nothing much to do the film. Ronit Roy is interesting in a role of bad cop.
Boss has too many witty lines; two among them are repeated again and again. One is “Maut ko toh yuhi badnaam karte hai, takleef toh zindagi deti hai” by Ronit Roy and second is “Apne ko kya apne ko toh bas pani nikalna hai” by Akshay Kumar. How many times we are supposed to enjoy the same dialogues?
