Lyrics : Kumaar, Manoj Yadav, Sahil Kaushal
What happens when a courageous, young kid, (who gets uncontrollable when his ego is touched) is evicted from home for his rebellious actions? Particularly when the kid grows up into Akshay Kumar. The answer is obvious. Well, that sums up the story of Boss. 
Boss is an action packed drama that predominantly relies on action to while away most of its running time. However, the stunts have been choreographed neatly with small pieces of humour and huge chunks of slow motion shots that rise up some subtle laughter and provide a visual treat to the eyes. 
Director Anthony D’Souza teams up with Akshay Kumar again after they both had an outing together for the movie Blue. Although, Boss does not have too much to offer in the story department, the movie is filled with a lot of fireworks right from the word go. 
Akshay Kumar, who plays Boss, is introduced into the frame only after a good twenty minutes into the movie. However, the actor practically runs away with the show right from the moment he appears before the audience. His superfluous action which is either prefixed or suffixed with thunderous punch dialogues sets up the exuberance among the diehard Akshay Kumar fans. 
Shiv Pandit and Aditi Rao Hydari play important roles in the movie, the former playing the character of Shiv, who is Akshay Kumar’s brother and the latter playing the role of Ankita, who happens to be the former’s love interest. Shiv, who also gets bits and pieces of action sequences that are strewn out of Akshay’s clutch, does his role as he was apparently expected to. Aditi Rao exhibits a lot of oomph and is presented into frame in a bikini, which brings out the oohs and the aahs among the audience, thereby shooting up her hotness quotient. 
Mithun Chakraborty who plays Akshay’s father, is a teacher who lives by his own principles and good morals. His veritableness is too over the top that some portions, especially the flashback sequences, appear a little over-dramatic. Nevertheless the actor has managed to pull off his character in the typical Mithun Chakraborty style, we are very familiar with. 
Ronit Roy plays Ayushman Thakur, who is the archetypal antagonist and obviously is Akshay’s rival. Like most bad guys, Ronit is also given a mannerism that he carries in the movie. He is seen chewing grams in the initial portions of the film, however as the story progresses, he forgets that he is supposed to be chewing them. It can possibly be because of the trouble Akshay gives him in the movie. Ronit proves his mettle in the final one on one battle that he has with Boss, which he unfortunately has to lose, for obvious reasons. 
Sanjay Mishra and Johnny Lever appear on screen in brief intervals and deliver precisely what they had been roped in for; to generate laughter. Johnny Lever makes use of dialogues to produce the giggles while Sanjay Mishra makes use of the symptoms of the ailments he is suffering with. 
Apart from the action sequences, Boss has provided some attractively choreographed and picturized songs that have been placed neatly in between scenes. The Boss title song makes use of car stunts that are visually appealing and Akshay Kumar’s macho looks are an addition to the exhilaration. The visuals have been well treated with a lot of dedication and accuracy.

Produced by Ashwin Varde and distributed by Viacom 18, Boss doesn't have any lofty intentions, makes a perfect somersault and lands exactly where it intended to.
Verdict: This cliched action potboiler is strictly for fans of Akshay Kumar
( 1.75 / 5.0 )
