Story: Akshay Kumar (Adi/Gabbar) is a teacher by profession. While teaching is his job, he turns moonlights as a vigilante and decides to teach a lesson to corrupt officials. Gabbar along with his team kidnap corrupt officials and hand in the culprits week-by-week! Problems arise when Gabbar frames charges of corruption against a hospital owner and to avoid complications, the hospital MD commits suicide. What happens next forms the basic plot of the movie.
Performance: Akshay Kumar is his usual self with loads of action and drama. The actor here is a mix of Singham and Rowdy Rathore. However, Akshay fans will enjoy this masala movie. Shruti Haasan does a decent job but is wasted in the movie. While in the first half she is just an eye candy, in the second half one sees her over-acting. Sunil Grover is good in his character of Sadhu, but again he fails to impress due to a half baked role. Kareena Kapoor Khan is sweet in her cameo. You will love seeing her on screen!
Direction: Krish may be known for his films down South, but his Bollywood debut seems to have lost path mid way. The film had a great subject in hand but it fails to connect. Though the movie starts on a dull note, it manages to pick well later. However, the climax of the movie turns out to be slightly disappointing.
Combo-on-Offer: Rowdy Rathore + Singham = Gabbar!
Verdict: We give the film Slaps for its predictable content and weak script.
