Satyakant Shastri (Mithun Chakraborty) is an honest and upright teacher hailing from a small town in India. He lives for his 23-year-old son Shiv (Shiv Pandit) who he believes has grown up with the right principles and values. Despite all the right things he does in his life, somehow, Satyakant’s past never fails to haunt him. The past where he also had another son – his elder son -who he disowned long ago. Satyakant dreams big for Shiv and decides to send him to the big city so that he can embark on his career.
Shiv lands up in New Delhi to make his ambitions come true. This is where he encounters the gorgeous Ankita (Aditi Rao Hydari). Shiv and Ankita share a past connection and it doesn’t take long for feelings to blossom once again between them. But standing in the way of their romance is a deadly trio – Ankita’s brother (a ruthless cop), the Home Minister and the Home Minister’s son (who wants Ankita for himself).
A plan is hatched to target Shiv and the trio succeeds in framing him for something he hasn’t done. Satyakant’s world comes crashing down as he watches Shiv being punished and sent behind bars with absolutely no chance of getting out.When all the doors have been shut, Satyakant is left with only one option – to reach out to his elder son, who is now more popularly known as Bosss (Surya) (Akhay Kumar), to save Shiv.
Boss is a one-man-army and a man everyone fears. When the father reaches out to the son he had once disowned for help, Boss leaves everything behind and makes that his mission.The rest of the story is all about how Boss, in his trademark and inimitable style, turns the tide on the culprits and saves his family.Like they say, every family needs a hero.
BOSS is a clear departure from previous Akshay starrers [OMG – OH MY GOD!, SPECIAL 26, ONCE UPON A TIME IN MUMBAI DOBAARA!], yet it has everything that spectators look for in masala fares — a daring hero with loads of heroism, the emotional chord between two brothers and their father, a corrupt cop, the fight between good and evil, a tadka of comedy, hummable soundtrack, clap-trap dialoguebaazi, lots of gravity-defying stunts… in fact, BOSS is a fast-moving roller-coaster ride that gives you no time to think. The film transports you to the cinema of yore, when the sole motive of a movie was to please, appease, amuse and entertain the spectators and reap a harvest at the BO. This one does that too: It offers entertainment by the bucketful and celebrates the formula with panache.
Final word? BOSS is *not* for those who find it fashionable to run down masala films. This one’s for those who feast on unadulterated, pure desi entertainers with glee.
