✔     Introduction 



Hello Friends, I hope you are doing fine and are having a good time on bitlanders. Today I have come up with my another new blog with the title of "Bollywood Movie Review - Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty".  Friends, in this blog I shall review a Commercially Hit Bollywood movie "Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty". This Bollywood movie is about a soldier who comes to meet with his family on vacation and he meets his lover as well as some terrorists group which lead to multiple events with ups and downs in the movie.  He comes to know that he has run into an International Terrorists Group and fights for his homeland.  This film was directed by Arunasalam Murugadoss who is a famous name in Indian as well as Tamil Films Direction.  This film was produced by Hari Om Entertainment which is a famous Film Production Company in India.

So the question is not exactly how good is Akshay Kumar’s comedy-action-thriller Holiday, but how did they achieve such a high order of unintentional hilarity?


The answer to that question can be found in the filmmaking genius of AR Murugadoss. His approach to cinema is fascinating – there is no point in making a straightforward good movie, because that process does not have any mojo. We’re better off with the questionable magic of Murugadoss’ imagination that enables us to enjoy a movie in which Sonakshi Sinha slaps her father routinely and Govinda plays an athletic senior Army commando.

✔     My Movie Review - Conclusion






Image Credit:





The movie "Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty"  depicts the life of a soldier and proves the fact that a soldier is never off duty because he has to take care of his motherland at all times and under any circumstances.  The movie shows just the same as a soldier is on vacations but he finds himself between the terrorists and starts to perform his duties without paying any attention to certain dangers around him.  The movie is a very good movie and is full of entertainment and full of love with motherland.  It seems pretty clear that the Director and the Producer have worked very hard to make this movie a success.  The movie had the production budget of around Indian Rupees 500 Million whereas after its release the movie managed to earn more than Indian Rupees 1780 Million which shows the popularity level this movie enjoyed and that is the very much the factor why this movie remained on top in 2014 in terms of earnings.  If you like movies which have a touch of Army life and want to see Hero with Army outfit then this movie is a must see.
