The much-awaited spy thriller is released on Thursday. Akshay Kumar drives the movie and flawlessly takes it on his shoulders. Lara Dutta also grabbed the news for her ‘Indira Gandhi’ appearance, and she has played the role much better.

On the first day of its premiere, the Akshay Kumar film grossed Rs 2.75 crore.


Bell Bottom opens with the hijacking episode. Akshay Kumar’s appearance is stunning. The flashbacks are okay; it sometimes appears to stall the tale, but it supports viewers in knowing Bell Bottom’s past and also why he entered RAW in the first sense.

The second part opens with the agents landing at Dubai Airport and aiming to achieve their goal. The drama falls and slows in a few instances, but it pulls admirably in the mid of the second hour.

The story leads you to frame by frame to know the movie’s development and ends on a winning streak with the implementation. ‘Bell Bottom’ had the elegance of Bollywood, a huge commercial film that earned to be seen in theaters.

Bell Bottom is a movie set in the 1980s that portrays an undercover RAW officer (Akshay Kumar) on an operation to liberate nearly 200 passengers from a hijacked Indian plane.

The plot swings between Delhi, London, Lahore, Islamabad, and Dubai as the RAW head (Adil Hussain, who dominates each scene) briefs an emergency cabinet meeting led by Prime Minister Indira Gandhi that the only man who can liberate the Indian inmates is their “brilliant analyst” Bell Bottom.

Akshay Kumar portrays Anshul Malhotra, an undercover spy codenamed Bell Bottom who is married to an MTNL staff (Vaani Kapoor) who remains in the backstory like one decent, obedient, deeply in love wife.

Bell Bottom Star Performances

Bell Bottom isn’t plainly one other Akshay Kumar flick that comes out at Independence Day; it’s different in every manner. This is one of the best performances in Akshay Kumar’s career, nicely accompanied by Adil Hussain and Lara Dutta.

Lara Dutta’s portrayal of former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi is remarkable. The actress gets into the character’s skin and has the right body language. Adil Hussain, who portrays Kumar’s boss, is outstanding as always. Dolly Ahluwalia, portrays Kumar’s mother has done a fine job. Dolly Ahluwalia’s bond with Akshay Kumar was nicely crafted, but little more scope was there.

Bell Bottom Script Analysis

The storyline of Aseem Arora and Parveez Shaikh doesn’t really deliver an absolutely new formula, but it does bring a quick, emotionally charged adventure with the dependable backing of Akshay Kumar.

The film is entertaining and able to grab your focus for the entire 123 minutes. The movie’s momentum lines up, and the plot and characters do not fall flat.

Cinematographer Rajeev Ravi manages to position himself across styles with flicks such as Gangs of Wasseypur and Udta Punjab.

Bell Bottom: Direction and Music Review

Ranjit collaborated with his Lucknow Central writer Aseem Arora, as well as Parveez Shaikh, for the movie.

Ranjit M Tewari’s Bell Bottom is the best picture of his career, but also an essential contribution to the overloaded genre space. Tewari’s flaws as a director are hidden by tremendous writing and convincing dialogues.

A few romantic songs are bland and uninteresting. Climax’s soulful song misses the mark of the level raised by Teri Mitti, Ashq Na Ho, and Tu Bhoola Jisse.
