bade miyan chote miyan news 2024

After a long time, Bollywood star hero Akshay Kumar came up with a tent-pole film called Bade Miyan Chote Miyan. The film also stars Tiger Shroff in another lead role, and it is directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. The movie unit marketed the film pretty well and let’s see how it is.

Story:

Kabir (Prithviraj Sukumaran) steals a package from the Indian army and kills a few soldiers. The nation’s security is at stake since the package contains confidential details. Misha (Manushi Chhillar) tries to fight against Kabir’s group, but she fails. Court martialled officers Firoz, a.k.a Freddy (Akshay Kumar), and Rakesh, a.k.a Rocky (Tiger Shroff), are deputed to track down Kabir and stop him. Misha and Pam (Alaya F) assist Firoz and Rakesh in the mission. Who is this Kabir? What made him go against the Indian army? What is inside that package? Did Firoz and Rakesh stop Kabir? This is what the film is about.

Plus Points:

The makers promised that Bade Miyan Chote Miyan would have the best action sequences, and very rightly, the film delivers in this aspect. The action set pieces are superbly designed by Craig Macrae, and they look pretty good on the screen. The one action block that comes before the interval is a visual feast and sets up the momentum for the latter half.

Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff are pretty good in their roles. They have put in solid efforts for the action blocks, which are clearly visible on screen. It is their chemistry and fun banter that saves the film to some extent. The first half has some good fun moments, which can be enjoyable despite nothing much happening plot-wise. Sonakshi Sinha is decent in an extended cameo.

Minus Points:

It is disappointing to see such a mediocre product from a director like Ali Abbas Zafar, who has delivered good films in the commercial space. Prithviraj Sukumaran is a great actor but he doesn’t make any impact, and that’s because of the bland writing. The makers tried to tweak the routine story by adding technology-related stuff, but that hardly made any difference.

The action sequences and the scale are no doubt massive, but for the film to click, the plot needs to be strong, and that didn’t happen here. The tried-and-tested template may work as long as the film is entertaining. But in Bade Miyan Chote Miyan, the entertainment factor is totally missing in the second half. As we have many films like Pathaan and War in this same format, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan becomes tedious and boring once the backstory is revealed.

The filmmakers must try something new in this genre to prevent the audience from becoming fatigued. Manushi Chhillar and Alaya F are forgettable in their poorly written characters. The background score is poor and repetitive. Even the well-composed action scenes lack impact as the score fails to take them to the next level. To make things worse, the film lacks logic.

Technical Aspects:

The poor CGI and below-par cinematography further affect the viewing experience. This is a mega-budget film, and the makers should have paid more attention to technical aspects. Neither the songs nor the background score is good. Vishal Mishra did a poor job, and had there been a couple of chartbusters, the film would have been somewhat better.

Ali Abbas Zafar’s direction is below par. One wouldn’t expect such a substandard product from him after having seen his previous works. Neither the film is entertaining throughout, nor does it have novelty in terms of story and screenplay. The writing is lazy, and the film gives a deja vu feeling in multiple scenes.

Verdict:

On the whole, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan is a mediocre product in which the action clicks, but the story doesn’t. Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff are neat in their roles, and their chemistry makes the first half somewhat watchable. However, the film becomes boring and predictable once the antagonist’s backstory is revealed. Entertainment is completely missing in the second half. Prithviraj Sukumaran doesn’t shine due to the poor writing. Bollywood is churning out these patriotic films in large numbers, but they must come up with novel ideas to keep this genre alive. At the box office, the movie might benefit from the Eid season initially, but it will be difficult to sustain once the holiday season is over.
