After delivering box office blockbusters like Sultan, Tiger Zinda Hai and Bharat, director Ali Abbas Zafar has now joined hands with Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff to give us an Eid treat in the form of Bade Miyan Chote Miyan. Shot across locations such as Mumbai, London, Abu Dhabi, Scotland, and Jordan, this Pan-India film is creating buzz for its grand scale and Hollywood-style cinematic visuals.

Rakesh aka Rocky (Akshay Kumar) and Freddy (Tiger Shroff) are the best assets of the Indian army. They are not only brave, but also honest and unapologetically patriotic. However, on the flipside, they are also a bit uncontrolled and defiant.

India’s future is in jeopardy because of a tech-savvy villain, who is about to unleash an AI-powered mayhem on the country that can lead to a war-like situation with its volatile neighbours. The film gets down to business right from the very first scene that begins with the film’s antagonist, the masked South-side villain Kabir (Prithviraj Sukumaran) instead of its protagonists.

At the outset, to set the ball in motion, Col Azad (Ronit Roy) chooses two if his best ex-soldiers, Rakesh (Akshay Kumar) and Freddy (Tiger Shroff). Before sending Captain Misha (Manushi Chhillar) to convince the duo, he takes her to a flashback, where Rocky and Freddy are assigned a mission to save an Indian ambassador in Afghanistan along with his family and a female officer.

The two in turn, apart from saving the hostages, also win their brownie point by also killing all the terrorists and ultimately completing their mission successfully. While this mission shows their camaraderie, it also earns them the name of Bade Miyan and Chote Miyan among their fellow soldiers.

Captain Misha now takes up the mission to convince Rakesh and Firoz. While Rocky readily accepts the mission, Freddy rejects it. Captain Misha and Rocky land in the UK, where the package is kept hidden under the tunnel under the protection of the antagonist Kabir’s army. Misha and Rocky along with Pam (Alaya F), who is their asset and tech expert, enter the tunnel but unfortunately for them, get captured by the enemies.

As far as the performances are concerned, all that I can say is that Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff as Bade Miyan and Chote Miyan have a cool camaraderie and chemistry and also a superb banter.

Manushi Chhillar and Alaya F attempt to put their best foot forward and deliver a fairly decent performance, though all said and done, I should say that Sonakshi Sinha’s cameo as Captain Priya is good. Ronit lends able support as Colonel Azad. Prithviraj Sukumaran as Kabir is badass and cool, and to his credit, he succeeds in matching his energy with those of the two leading men.
