Special 26 (Special Chabbis) is a good movie. I don’t want to tell you the details in case you decide to watch it because it will ruin it for you. All I can say that it’s a good script about Indian CBI (Central Bureau of Investigation) with good acting and a balance of everything. I never felt bored during the movie, it demanded attention and was exciting. And if nothing else, you can watch the film for Akshay who is looking so handsome and smart in his mustache and CBI getup.
I did feel that the romantic track was unnecessary but it was probably demanded to make the film lengthier and to pull the crowd who likes romance. The actress is Kajal Aggarwal, who I’m not much of a fan of, but she did fine in the film. Her voice is naturally dubbed to hide her South accent.
Anupam Kher was great as usual, the supporting cast also did well, although the script doesn’t tell us much about them, aside from that they are regular people with regular lives. Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher are the stars of this show. This is not a film that you want to buy a DVD for, but do watch it online or otherwise when you get a chance. What I liked most about the film is that the story is based on real life events. There were some technical shortcomings like the models of planes and cars were not right (the film takes place in the 80s). But these details can easily be ignored for the story.
