Not that I had huge expectations from the film, but I was just hoping that it won't disappoint. But sadly, it does.
1. The film has a superb concept.
2. No actor disappoints - they all are brilliant in their roles.
3. The 1980s era has been presented well with the vintage cars and phones.
4. Superb twist in the climax
1. The camera keeps on following the characters as they walk. This perpetual following stretches the film unnecessarily.
2. The love story between Akshay Kumar and Kajal Aggarwal is also unnecessary, and hampers the flow of the film. I wouldn't have complained had the love story been interesting; but sadly, it fails to evoke any emotion in the audience.
3. The songs are strictly okay, nothing wow. Hence, when they start playing, you get time to browse through your phone, or visit the loo.
4. The computer graphics, especially of the backdrop, looks extremely amateur, and typically 1980s type!
5. There's a scene in which Akshay Kumar dials long distance numbers from his landline phone. But back in 1987, STD facility in residential numbers wasn't available!
Director Neeraj Pandey, who has penned the story and has also taken care of the screenplay, should have paid attention to the deletion of unwanted elements in the film. This would have made the film a lot better.
Overall, Special 26 is worth just one watch... but don't keep your hopes high.
