Varghese Eapen’s review published on Letterboxd :
*For the 2nd time in 24 years Akshay Kumar can be proud that he has delivered a believable performance,now that's what happens when you have a competent director at the helm
*Neeraj Pandey who is known for the power packed A Wednesday and the cat and mouse thriller Special 26 yet again proves he is a director who respects the audience
*There are few nods to Argo and Zero Dark Thirty but thats only a minor quibble. I did also however notice the theme heard in the background before a Spiderman movie begins in certain places.
*Taapsee Pannu was the surprise element,this chick can kick ass and how!!!
*There is a bit of jingoism but i feel some of the other things mentioned were also very true.
* Its a bit long and some of it may seem implausible,but since its done with so much energy,its hard not to look away.
* One of the year's best!
