Gabbar is Back Review: Gabbar is Back is a common man’s fight against corruption. The movie justifies its name as Gabbar has been the biggest villain in Indian Cinema history. But this time Akshay Kumar adopt this name to fear the corrupts. He starts his own mission to destroy them and his way of doing so is brutal. Movie is a bit slow in parts especially in first half but it doesn’t boar you to core. We feel convinced with the proceedings and can actually feel the anger against the protagonist. This is what makes this movie different from other routine mass entertainers that audience get connected to the plot. Second half is solid with some really action packed sequences. Climax is ample and we feel convinced while coming out of the theater. There are minuses in the movie as every movie has but they don’t irritate you. Slow pace and loud BGM are two drawbacks.
In Gabbar is Back, Akshay Kumar again plays the lead role quite brilliantly and after Baby, he has given another commendable job. His dialog delivery is just rocking. Action is always a plus in his movies. Shruti Haasan is cute and does her part good. The villain played by Suman is convincing. Akshay Kumar is making so much sensible movies nowadays. Holiday, Baby and now “Gabbar Is Back” with a bang. This is a story of Aditya/Gabbar (Akshay Kumar), a lawyer’s assistant and the hero’s romantic interest Shruti (Shruti Haasan), a lowly but ambitious constable Sadhuram (Sunil Grover), a swaggering CBI officer Kuldeep Pahwa (Jaideep Ahlawat) and a villainous real estate tycoon Digvijay Patil (Suman Talwar).
Sunil aka Gutthi is a bonus as Police officer. Kareena looks stunning in cameo while Chitrangadha is ravishing in item number. Direction by Krish is good. Story and Dialogues are apt and support the movie a lot. Editing could’ve been better. Music is average with loud BGM. Cinematography is good. Action is OTT but looks good played by Akshay. Overall, Gabbar is Back is a convincing movie with a storyline that would connect audience and that’s where it hits bulls’ eye. It would be loved by one and all as it is a true entertainer. Go for it because there are very few no Nonsense masala movies made in Bollywood and Gabbar is Back is one of them. Enjoy guys.
