Maybe the most underrated movie of the year

The trailers and build-up to this movie had got me really excited. But when I checked the reviews, bam! they were horrible. This literally killed my excitement! So much that I watched this movie more than a week after its release, that too after a lot of hesitation.

But once I was halfway through the movie, I started thinking about all the negativity surrounding it, and then realized that several ratings and reviews of this movie on IMDb are utter BS. Which is why I decided to write this review.

Coming to the movie, it follows the story of Gaurav - a normal office-goer, Kavya - his love interest and Rishi - a spy. It feels like a Hollywood action movie plus some unnecessary songs and dances which is a routine in Bollywood. The movie has got a lot to offer which includes the concept of parallel timelines, plot twists and a lot of action with a dash of humor.

A must watch light-hearted entertainer

2 hours of fun entertainment - subtle, sleek and sumptuous ! A good thrill, some cool missions and lot of straight face humour! Sidharth Malhotra nails the poles apart portrayal of Gaurav and Rishi, keeps it subtle and distinctive. Jacky is good fun. The gujju goon and Dixit deserve a special mention. Only 2 songs are part of the run so it doesn't slow down the pace of the film, never a dull moment - things keep moving in every scene. It is a complete package AND is packaged beautifully & smartly. A breezy entertainer you should not miss on ! The Dirty Martini scene & The help scene are highlights !! :)

Agent Vinod: Bourne Again

A Gentleman is another recent mainstream Bollywood movie I enjoyed a great deal. When I booked the ticket all I had in mind was "Hey, it's made by the same guys that made 99 and Shor in the City". After I booked I remembered, "Hey, didn't they also make Go Goa Gone and Happy Ending? Crap!" On the face of it, there was nothing else remotely promising. And the first 20 odd min had me regretting my decision with its wobbly pacing and stale humor. But then the movie started coming together, running multiple plot strands that (without spoilers) converged with a skillful timeline swerve that will either have you pleased or scratching your head going "समझ में नहीं आया". After that the movie is a tight and racy action comedy that stays within formula but milks it well. And Siddharth Malhotra is genuinely good in his part, exuding both toughness and self-deprecating humor. I've never seen any previous film of his but he generally seems to be cast as a depressed romantic fool a lot of the time. But here he conveys the ass-kicking buffed up hunk without it ever dipping into smug douchebag territory. The action sequences are immensely well done (including a nice riff on a Mission Impossible style heist, that includes rappelling down a glass-fronted tower building) and brutal hand to hand combat never gets old. Also the humor offers a continuous counterpoint to the violence (Amit Mistry seems to be continuing his role of Kuber from 99).

Sadly, like Jagga Jasoos, this is another cool movie that seems to be starved of an audience and likely to fizzle out pronto. Cinema on a weekend night was about a quarter full.
