Actor Akshay Kumar is typically a confident Punjabi Lad who excels in every movie he has acted. The ‘Khiladi Kumar’ is much more than his karate black belt and fight sequences. He has got acting prowess. Well, Neeraj Pandey of the ‘A Wednesday’ movie and Akshay give a convincing performance in a no-nonsense movie ‘Special 26’ which is a compelling drama based on real events. Besides Akshay Kumar, the other actors in leading roles – Anupam Kher, Manoj Bajpayee and Jimmy Shergill – do more than justice to their roles, making the movie worth your money and time.
Akshay Kumar (Ajju ) is the master-mind, who picks the victims — corrupt politicians and rich businessmen who have piles of black money to hide and would not dare to cry wolf fearing loss of face in public. This helps Ajju hatch ingenious plots to trap them and eventually run away to Sharjah with his team and all the loot. Anupam Kher is a very competent actor as fake CBI senior A K Sharma in the movie.
Gripping story, ‘comic’ funny and a low budget money spinner. Go and watch the movie for Akshay Kumar’s histrionics.
