A holiday is a time when you want to call it quits with your outside world and take some time off with your family, or friends, or sometimes even by yourself. But that's definitely not what a holiday means for all of us, at least not for the people in the defense forces. A.R. Murugadoss's Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, has an apt caption to it. There are very few films that have an engaging power in it. A remake of A. R. Murugadoss's hit Tamil film Thupaaki, this one too is a complete mass entertainer, and has a very engaging story line to it.
Captain Virat Bakshi, an army man comes back home to Mumbai for his holidays. His family takes him to see a bride, and he feels the girl is too soft and an introvert. Later in another occasion, he finds out that she is actually a boxer and is surprised by her personality. Having a police man friend, and the love he develops for this girl, the film revolves around the fun that happens among the three.
Akshay Kumar who has been entertaining us with his massy films, doesn't go wrong with this one either. Akshay reportedly has lost lots of weight to look almost 12 years younger, and oh yes he does look way too fitter and pulls of the character of an Army guy of Virat Bakshi with lot of ease and panache. Often termed as the 'khiladi' of Bollywood, his action sequences can't ever go wrong. The best part about his action is that it is very believable. At no point does one feel that what he is doing is not making sense. He is a major reason for you to be glued to your seat all throughout the movie.
This film is a complete mass entertainer, which will cater to every audience. Even though it is a mass entertainer, it has a very strong message. This should definitely be a part of your weekend plans as it will be totally worth your time. So this weekend enjoy your "Holiday"!
