Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Movie Synopsis:
Big Mian Small Mian It is the story of two patriotic officers. The Indian Army is transporting a package to a safe facility via the northern Himalayan route. Suddenly, they are attacked by Kabir and defeated.Prithviraj Sukumaran), who is hiding his identity by wearing a mask. He takes the package and records a video, saying that India is now in dire straits. On the other hand, Captain Misha (Manushi Chhillar) arrives in Shanghai, China after being asked to meet her by a source named Chang (Kinner Borua).

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Movie Story Review:
Ali Abbas Zafar is a story novel. Screenplay by Ali Abbas Zafar and Aditya Basu is good in some scenes but the pacing at most places is hard to digest. The cloning and Iron Dome angle is interesting but not well utilized in the script. Sooraj Gianani and Ali Abbas Zafar’s dialogues are funny only at selected places. The one-liners between Tiger and Alaya in several scenes are brilliant.

Ali Abbas Zafar’s direction is good. There is no doubt that his filmmaking skills are exemplary and he tries his best to go above and beyond the script. He mounts the film on a grand scale and ensures that it looks like a grand entertainer. Although the film is 158 minutes long, it never gets boring. Plus, it’s impressive how he cuts the villain’s entry scene with the craziness that takes place in Shanghai. This makes for an unexpected watch. Another unpredictable moment is during the interval. The entry of the heroes is lengthy but gives the viewers their money’s worth.

On the contrary, the writing is such that one never feels fear for the main characters. So it doesn’t root for them as much as the makers might have intended. Some developments are shocking. For example, Freddy knew about the mission and was willing to be a part of the operation. Still, he feigned ignorance and initially refused. Adil Shekhar Azad meets Kabir and they seem to have some arrangement. This is never explained. The biggest problem however is Kabir’s reason for going against India. The way the Indian Army is happy with the ‘Soldier X’ program and then expresses reservations when Kabir explains the USP is absurd. Moviegoers won’t understand this aspect or why Freddy breaks off his engagement, and that’s not good because the revenge angle hinges on this crucial sequence. The ending is just fine.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan: Official Trailer | Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff, Sonakshi Sinha

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Movie Performance:
Akshay Kumar is decent and could have done better. However, he looks fit and scores in the action scenes. Tiger Shroff is let down by the dialogues and his acting leaves a lot to be desired. He is brilliant even when doing dangerous stunts. Prithviraj Sukumaran rocks the show and is perfect for the part. Manushi Chhillar looks great and impresses as a no-nonsense officer. Alaya is on F. Sonakshi Sinha (Priya) is beautiful in the supporting role. Ronit Roy is reliable. Kinnar Borua, Manish Chaudhary (Karan Shergill), Bijay Anand (Jamaluddin), Pawan Chopra (Defence Secretary) and Khalid Siddiqui (Ambassador) do not get much scope.

Bade Mian Chote Mian Music and other technical aspects:
Vishal Mishra’s music is not of the chartbuster variety. The title track is not registered. ‘Mast Malang Zoom’ It’s fine until then ‘Wallah Habibi’ Works only because of attractive theme. All the three songs have been filmed very well. Julius Packiam’s background score has a cinematic feel.

Marcin Laskavic’s cinematography adds to the grandeur. Acting by Craig McRae and Parvez Shaikh is entertaining and not annoying. Anisha Jain and Malvika Bajaj’s costumes are stylish but don’t go overboard considering the heroes are playing army officers. The production composition by Rajnish Hedao, Snigdha Basu and Sumit Basu is attractive. Redefine, Number9 VFX and Prime Focus’ VFX is perfect. Steven Bernard’s editing is fine but the pre-fight interlude is too stretched and should have been cut down.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Movie Conclusion:
Overall, Bade Miyan Chhote Miyan suffers from a weak script and poor dialogues, however, it is a good watch for fans of Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff and patrons of action films.
