Story line: This is an action-packed story of a kind-hearted gangster called Boss. The tale also has a ruthless police officer, who is in the opposition of Boss. It also narrates about Boss’s father as well as his mentor. Akshay Kumar will play a kind hearted Haryanavi gangster, apparently known as Boss and Mithun Chakraborty will enact the role of his father. Shiv Pandit will portray Akshay Kumar’s younger brother’s role in the film and Aditi Rao Hydari is paired opposite him. Danny Denzongpa will play Boss’s mentor and Ronit Roy will play a ruthless police officer who is pitted against Kumar.
Facts And Figures:
          Ronit along with Akshay Kumar have an action sequence at the climax of the film, one of the highlights of the film which were shot in temperatures exceeding 47 degree Celsius in Thailand involving high octane stunts that were carried out in the end successfully by both the actors.
          Boss movie is an action comedy and a complete masala entertainer which is a remake of a Malayalam film Pokkiri Raja.
My Gut Feel and comments:
“The packages are trying to engage the consumer in such a way that they’re inspired to buy the product.” Same seems to be the case with Boss. Boss is a remake of successful Malayalam film Pokkiri Raja. Remaking is indeed a trend from last 4 to 5 years,  a super star from Bollywood engaged in successful south India movie remake has been a success mantra in modern times.  Masala entertainers always manage to find the huge mass audience with increased chance of box office success even with the mediocre screenplay, direction and narration. I am not expecting Boss to be a pure quality entertainer however with Akshay’s presence, typical non experimental story line and some mass appealing action sequences you cannot written off this movie completely. I would give this movie 2.5 out of 5 stars, two days before the release.
