Sonakshi Sinha as a butt-kicking makes a good action star. She has worked hard to get the moves right in the film. AR Murugadoss known for his hard hitting action flicks is back with another in Akira, this time around he has a female bashing up the goons. Anurag Kashyap just steals the show with a flawless performance as a corrupt ACP. Konkona Sen Sharma has a small yet striking role of an investigative officer.

The screenplay of the film is engaging but has been dragged for no reason. The movie does not boast of any song. R. D. Rajasekhar has beautifully captured Mumbai. The editing by A Sreekar Prasad is truly crisp.

All in All ‘Akira’ is worth a watch for Sonakshi Sinha and Anurag Kashyap’s acting prowess.
