Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Movie Synopsis:
BADE MIYAN CHOTE MIYAN is the story of two patriotic officers. The Indian army is transporting a package to a secure facility through the Northern Himalayan Road. Suddenly, they get attacked and defeated under the leadership of Kabir (Prithviraj Sukumaran), who’s hiding his identity by wearing a mask. He takes the package and records a video, stating that India is now in deep trouble. On the other hand, Captain Misha (Manushi Chhillar) reaches Shanghai, China after a source, Chang (Kinnar Boruah), asks her to meet him. Chang warns her that a friend-turned-foe of India is out to exact revenge. Before he can say any further, he is killed by a masked man. Misha attacks him and is shocked to see that the masked goon has self-healing powers. She reports about it to Colonel Adil Shekhar Azad (Ronit Roy). He decides to take the help of two sacked officers to fight Kabir – Firoz aka Freddy (Akshay Kumar) and Rakesh aka Rocky (Tiger Shroff). The package is tracked to London. The trio reach the UK capital where a tech expert, Pam (Alaya F) joins them. They successfully locate the package and devise a plan. Kabir, however, is monitoring their moves and has a different agenda in his mind. What happens next forms the rest of the film.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Movie Story Review:
Ali Abbas Zafar’s story is novel. Ali Abbas Zafar and Aditya Basu’s screenplay is great in a few scenes but in most places, the goings-on are difficult to digest. The angle of cloning and Iron Dome is interesting but hasn’t been utilized well in the script. Suraj Gianani and Ali Abbas Zafar’s dialogues are funny only in select places. The one-liners mouthed by Tiger and Alaya in several scenes are cringeworthy.

Ali Abbas Zafar’s direction is fine. There’s no doubt that his filmmaking skills are exemplary and he tries his best to rise above the script. He also mounts the film on a lavish scale and ensures that it looks like a grand entertainer. Though the film is 158 minutes long, it never gets boring. Moreover, it’s impressive how he cuts the villain entry scene with the madness that occurs in Shanghai. It makes for an unexpected watch. Another unpredictable moment is during the intermission. The entry of the heroes is lengthy but gives viewers their money’s worth.

On the flipside, the writing is such that one is never in awe of the lead characters. Hence, one doesn’t root for them as much as the makers must have intended. A few developments are bewildering. For instance, Freddy knew about the mission and was ready to be a part of the operation. Yet, he feigned ignorance and declined initially. Adil Shekhar Azad meets Kabir and there seems to be some sort of arrangement between them. This is never explained. The biggest problem, however, is the reason for Kabir to turn against India. The manner in which the Indian forces are happy with the ‘Soldier X’ programme and then express reservations when Kabir explains the USP is silly. Moviegoers would not be able to understand this aspect or why Freddy breaks his engagement and that’s not good since the revenge angle rests on this important sequence. The finale is just okay.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Movie Performances:
Akshay Kumar is decent and could have done better. However, he looks quite fit and scores in the action scenes. Tiger Shroff is let down by the dialogues and his performance leaves a lot to be desired. He is superb, though, while performing the dangerous stunts. Prithviraj Sukumaran rocks the show and is apt for the part. Manushi Chhillar looks superb and impresses in the role of a no-nonsense officer. Alaya F is over the top. Sonakshi Sinha (Priya) is lovely in a supporting role. Ronit Roy is dependable. Kinnar Boruah, Manish Chaudhari (Karan Shergill), Bijay Anand (Jamaluddin), Pawan Chopra (Defence Secretary) and Khalid Siddiqui (Ambassador) don’t get much scope.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan music and other technical aspects:
Vishal Mishra’s music is not of chartbuster variety. The title track doesn’t register. ‘Mast Malang Jhoom’ is okay while ‘Wallah Habibi’ works only because it has a catchy theme. All three songs, however, are very well shot. Julius Packiam’s background score has a cinematic feel.

Marcin Laskawiec’s cinematography adds to the grandeur. Craige Macrae and Parvez Shaikh’s action is entertaining and is not disturbing. Anisha Jain and Malvika Bajaj’s costumes are stylish but don’t go overboard, considering that the protagonists play army officers. Rajnish Hedao, Snigdha Basu and Sumit Basu’s production design is appealing. Redefine, Number9 VFX and Prime Focus’ VFX is appropriate. Steven Bernard’s editing is fine but the fight before the interval is quite stretched and should have been shortened.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Movie Conclusion:
On the whole, BADE MIYAN CHOTE MIYAN suffers due to a weak script and poor dialogues, however, it is a decent watch for the fans of Akshay Kumar, Tiger Shroff, and those who patronize action movies.
