"Special 26" is based on many true yet unreported crimes of fake raids which occurred during the mid 1980s in India. It tells the thrilling tale of how a gang of confidence artists plan and executed near perfect crimes across the length and breadth of the country, without a bullet being fired! The police are closing in on their heels and a brilliant cat-and-mouse game unfolds, with each sides gain only proving to be temporary. As the master criminal minds are pitted against the diligent perseverance of the law enforces, only the side that can out-think and out-maneuver the other will emerge victorious.
Great light-hearted thriller
- Special 26 review by PS
Thoroughly enjoyed this light-hearted thriller. Like many Bollywood films it is a movie of two halves; the first half setting the scene, and the second half ramping up the action to the close. Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher are both superb and well cast in their respective roles. And the music for the wedding of Sharma's daughter is so catchy I've been playing it on repeat for days.
