Special 26

Special 26 (aka Special Chhabbis) starring Akshay Kumar, Anupam Kher, Manoj Bajpayee, Kajal Agrawal, and Jimmy Shergill as main cast. Notable supporting actress is Divya Dutta with her dialogue, "Asli kaam to yeh log kar rahen hai, hum to...." and its twin version which I won't reveal here.

The movie seems like pretty obvious at the outset as Akshay Kumar and Anupam Kher (along with two other characters who are likely TV actors) con ministers and businessmen as fake CBI all over India. Apparently, Jimmy Shergill (a delhi Police Inspector and his associate Divya Dutta) are made Chewtiyas by these two. Jimmy is pissed and seeks help of true CBI sleuth Manoj Bajpai..

But the story takes an interesting turn just when it seems Manoj Bajpai has all his ducks in a row with due support from Jimmy Shergill (now a suspended ex-cop)....

what happens next will not be revealed here to preserve the entertainment value of the movie.

I give it 3.5 out of 5, a good time pass with a decent suspense in storyline

Re: Special 26

Saw this Ydy. A decent timepass movie. It actually showacses 80s quite authentically - almost - the trains in those days were kind of maroon and not blue as they have been since 2000.
