worth watching more than once !
Finally 2013 has its first Awesome movie. Its been an year with all crappy movies so far. Special 26 steals the show easily.
The characters and actors have been so well chosen. Each actor has got the perfect character. The casting could not have been better than this. The direction is superb. So is the Art Direction. The story does not lag anywhere. So its a superb story with some really good editing.
Talking about actors -
Akshay Kumar - comes out of his day to day roles of khiladi and joker stuff. This is serious cinema which makes him a complete actor.
Anupam Kher - reminds everyone that he is still very much the same awesome actor as the one in 90s.
Jimmy Sheirgill - chooses the right kind of role finally. He perfectly fits the role of SI Ranvir Singh and also fits well in the 1987 plot.
Manoj Bajpai - as good as ever. Special 26 ka CBI inspector Waseem Khan is as good as Wasseypur ka Sardar Khan.
Kavya - hardly any role for her. Shes in the movie for songs only.
Divya Dutta - standard supportive role. does well.
Others - very well done.
Art direction for Delhi steals the show. the 1987 Delhi has been brought alive. details have been worked out well. 1987 Mumbai disappointed. I guess it was very tough to recreate that so the director and the VFX team chose the green screen. Thats the shoddiest part of the movie and hence i gave the 9/10 and not a full tenner.
Verdict : The movie can definitely been seen more than once at a theater if you get the tickets. It is gonna be a houseful for some days.
