Men in uniform have always fascinated Bollywood!
We've seen films made on our brave cops and on the National army, but HOLIDAY that is based on the mission of an army man is different from all.
It comes as a breath of fresh air and it is sure to stay with you for a long time.
A R Murugadoss' HOLIDAY begins with army man Virat Bakshi (Akshay Kumar) returning home for a short holiday. He is on a leave to spend some quality time with his loved ones, but amidst all this he also discovers that Mumbai is under a terrorist attack threat.
Virat gets entangled in this mission and thus the tagline 'A soldier is never off-duty'.
The screenplay and the plot are so tight that it is best to experience it on the big screen.
Director A.R. Murugadoss helms the film brilliantly. He justifies the time that he took to prepare for the film which required fine detailing and a lot of homework.
The screenplay and story are one of the finest in recent times.
Talking about on-screen performances and you cannot think of any other actor than Akshay Kumar for leading this film.
Coming from an army background, Akshay was a perfect fit for the film.
Sonakshi Sinha as his love interest too does a good job. Though her role had nothing special to boast about, she manages to sweep you off your feet with her performance.
The surprise package of the film is actor Freddy Daruwala who plays the antagonist in the film. As a terrorist he nails the role and gives a fitting competition to Akshay on screen. It's not every day that you find a villain giving competition to the on-screen hero of Akshay's caliber.
The film will keep you glued to the screens till the end.
Go out and watch the film which is not only worth a watch as an entertainer, but also carries a social message in the most apt manner.
