Bell Bottom movie Review (4/5)

Bell Bottom is a next-level awesome thriller movie, the Indian raw agent with a tactful and intelligent mind in spite many mistakes and unsuccessful plans in his mission still he was able to rescue the 200+ passengers but was also able to arrest all the terrorists.

Akshay Kumar is already known for his action, stunning stunts, emotions, anger, and humorous acts. Now, he chose a very different topic and eventually suited for the role of agent. His personality and attitude as an agent are amazing and stunning. His fans especially love his agent or soldier-type roles.

The special thing about Bell Bottom that makes it unique and different from other Bollywood movies is the wrong points of the hero. As a hero of the film, for a long time Bollywood proves that the hero is always right, his decision and his plans are always right but in this movie, Bell Bottoms’ (Anshul) plans were unsuccessful and his strategies did not work as he thought. But still, he managed to pass his mission.

Basically, the background music matches the situations and really did a good work by Daniel B. George as music provider. Overall the whole movie was the fire. Most people found Bell Bottom to be really an engaging espionage thriller movie.
