Quick Movie Review: A huge disappointment, it is nowhere near the original movie. It is a sloppy remake with terrible performances and poor direction. The writing is trashy, lacks humour, and the dialogues are pathetic.
Akshay Kumar delivers one of the weakest performances of his career. Kiara Advani has nothing much to offer. Among all the supporting cast only Sharad Kelkar looks convincing, the rest all are wasted.

Overall Hit ya Flop Rating: 1.5 out of 5 Stars (Not Watchable)
