The Holiday

" The Holiday" - heralds the end of the Holiday season. Starring, the mighty Akshay Kumar, as the Indian Army officer who has come home for a holiday and gets involved in saving Mumbai from the throngs of terrorism and Sonakshi Sinha, the not so petite girl whom he woos for marriage. 

The movie starts off very interestingly, and keeps the audience hooked to their seats with the thrills. However, the execution falters big time. The script is promising but doesn't live upto expectations. The romantic overtures between the lead pair lack chemistry. The romance is practically non existent. Songs are pleasant to the ear but highly misplace
While, Akshay does look convincing in the action stunts, Sonali just plays an extended special appearance. Wonder, why she accepts such non substantial roles. Is it a result of her rigid non-kissing policy on screen? 
Farhad, as the debutante Villain would have made Johny Lever look more apt as the terrorist. 
Entertaining in bits and pieces, the other release Filmistan, would have been a better choice. 

The Holiday -, the other version would have been more appealing.
