Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Review: Action, Action & Only Action!

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Film Review: Ali Abbas Zafar’s Bade Miyan Chote Miyan (BMCM) is a run-of-the-mill action flick with several predictable twists. However, credit should be given to the Hollywood action director – Craig Macrae, who has given some of the best action stunts in movies like Avengers: Age of Ultron, Pathaan, and Jawan. But, these action sequences will not stick with you, no matter how brilliantly they were shot and edited.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Movie Review: Weak Writing

If you are looking for a no-brainer, loud music & background score, and action entertainment, then BMCM is for you. It’s a 30-minute short film that has been stretched for over 160 minutes.

The script is the weakest link of the movie. The makers did not invest much in developing the story and gave too many action stunts with loud background music. In every action sequence, there were slow-motion shots of Akshay and Tiger walking in front of a blast. At times these were unbearable.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Movie Review: Lacklustre Acting at Best!

You’ll feel disappointed with Akshay’s acting as did not have even a single expression on his face. You’d hope to see some effort from an actor of his caliber and experience, who has given so many superhits in different genres like comedy, action, and more. The only moment where he shines in the movie is when there is a reference to Phir Hera Pheri.

On the other hand, Tiger Shroff also fails to impress us with his performance. He acts like a cool young millennial, but not in a good way. His action sequences are very good, which are also his forte and we expect good action from him.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Film Review

One of the key elements of such a movie is the camaraderie between the two action superstars, but that is completely missing from the film. Their pairing feels like a mismatch.

Further into the movie, you’ll realize that the only respite was the voice modulation and watching Prithviraj remove his mask. But that’s not enough for a movie with such a stellar cast. Manushi Chillar also fails to deliver any expression and emotion.

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Movie Review: Poor Direction & Loud Music

BMCM fails in direction and music department as well, just like in acting and writing. Compared to Tiger Zinda Hai and Sultan, Bade Miyan Chote Miyan is the weakest movie by Ali.

The action sequences were the only saving grace of the movie, but even they were too long. You might think what’s the problem here? There is absolutely nothing wrong with long action sequences, but when they are presented right from the beginning and you are overboard with them, then it is a problem.

In addition, BMCM doesn’t offer a single moment of peace as you hear a deafening background score. The songs also will distract you from the flow and pace of the film.
