Bade Miyan Chote Miyan review: A tiring barrage of action clichés


“Bade Miyan Chote Miyan,” directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, has attempted to capture the audience’s attention with its intense action sequences and a star-studded cast including Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff. However, despite its efforts and the presence of heavy artillery in the form of explosions, gunfights, and high-octane stunts, the film has been criticized for its lack of originality and over-reliance on action tropes that border on monotony.

The film revolves around the characters Captain Firoz alias Freddy, played by Akshay Kumar, and Captain Rakesh alias Rocky, portrayed by Tiger Shroff. These characters are presented as seasoned soldiers who are initially court-martialed and dismissed but later called back into action. The narrative tries to weave a story of redemption and heroism but gets lost in a series of unconvincing and loosely connected action sequences. The dialogue and character development are similarly criticized, with much of the film’s attempts at humor and drama falling flat.

Supporting performances by Prithviraj Sukumaran, Sonakshi Sinha, Manushi Chhillar, Alaya F, and Ronit Roy add depth to the cast but are unable to salvage the fundamentally flawed script. Director Ali Abbas Zafar, known for his earlier successes, seems to struggle with balancing the action with a coherent storyline, resulting in a film that feels both overwhelming and underwhelming in its execution.

Despite the ensemble cast and high production values, the reception to “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” has been largely negative. Viewers and critics alike have pointed out the excessive reliance on action clichés — from endless bullets and explosions to the predictable confrontations between the protagonists and the antagonist, a rogue scientist-entrepreneur. This formulaic approach has left little room for narrative depth or character development, rendering the film a tedious watch.

For fans of the actors involved, “Bade Miyan Chote Miyan” might offer some appeal through its sheer spectacle and the charisma of its leads. However, for those seeking a film with a compelling story or meaningful engagement, it may be best to look elsewhere. The film’s failure to deliver a fresh take on the action genre underscores a missed opportunity to leverage its star power for something more impactful than just another forgettable action flick.
