Short Movie Review: AK vs AK is A Knockout

‘Sir main aapka bahut bada fan hun’… to which Anurag Kashyap replies.. ‘Haan main bhi apna bahut bada fan hun’… all the way to.. ‘Baap ka, Dada ka, Bhai ka, sabka badla lega tera yeh Kashyap’! Is Kashyap able to take his badla? What starts as an argument in front of a live audience between AK & AK, in this latest Netflix flick, ends with a thrilling, never seen before kidnapping saga with chopped finger, bloody nose and more. Kudos to director Vikramaditya Motwane.

Shot in an extremely refreshing, real to life format, fading superstar actor Anil Kapoor locks horns with neo-noir movies director Anurag Kashyap. The side cast are no less than Boney Kapoor, Sonam Kapoor, a bright Harshvardhan Kapoor and you get the gist. There is even Nawazuddin Siddiqui on the phone! But what stays with you after the movie is Kashyap’s evil smiles, cunning dialogues and Kapoor’s earnest efforts.

The only flaw – the movie could have cut down some of the chase sequences and hence the running time, by 15 mins. Yet once it ends, you are still searching for answer to the question – who is more important to a movie – actor or the director? The makers have hinted at a sequel, maybe as an attempt to confuse us with the answer more.

Rating: 3.5/5

Must watch, if nothing, surely to ensure year 2020 ends on a high note.


For serious book lovers

Thank you for reading my blog. My life biography is out in the markets now – based on one unintentional Facebook post which ended up making me jobless, unemployable and my family uprooted from singapore. The incident (and the book) shows the ugly, medieval, xenophobic and state backed racist side of singapore and that of social media. My life biography is a book on failure management – how I handled my unemployable state, managed finances, heartbreaks, academic failures, corporate lateral demotions and global shaming, in different stages of my life; to come out stronger and a winner, every time. I enjoy conquering adversity now, every time. You can click the highlighted words to buy it whether you are living in Americas, India, singapore, Australia, United Kingdom, Europe, Amazon globally or even if you want to read it in French!
