The film starts with Kabir (Prithviraj Sukumaran) stealing a package from the Indian army and causing the deaths of several soldiers. This unexpected incident jeopardizes the nation's security due to the confidential information contained in the package. Misha (Manushi Chhillar) attempts to take on Kabir's group, but her efforts are thwarted. Court martialled officers Firoz, also known as Freddy (Akshay Kumar), and Rakesh, also known as Rocky (Tiger Shroff), are assigned to track down Kabir and end his activities.


Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff fit well in their respective leading roles, making a sincere effort to entertain as Bade and Chote. However, Prithviraj Sukumaran, an esteemed actor, appeared ineffective in his character, which needed to be written appropriately. Manushi Chhillar and Alaya F had limited opportunities to showcase their talents, while Ronit Roy and Sonakshi Sinha were okay.

What Worked For The Film:

The film's plus points are the star duo, Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff. Though the film's story or screenplay offered them little scope, they tried carrying the movie on their shoulders. The initial fun banters between Akshay and Tiger work well, and the buildup before the interval raises a bit of anticipation towards the latter half.

What Did Not Work For The Film:

After watching BMCM, one cannot help but feel the fatigue of the patriotic plus action concept. There are films with similar themes, such as YRF's Spy series movies, and Bade Miyan Chote Miyan also follows the same pattern. A dreadful villain in vengeance mode for his own country and two superheroes willing to die or kill to safeguard their country. Yes, every movie may not be able to present a fresh story, but this kind of larger-than-life action film can work only if the emotions and thrills are correctly balanced. The characterization of Prithviraj and his backstory is nothing but a mess. The overuse of technical elements/words derail the effectiveness of the story. Also, the characters of Akshay and Tiger have little power or intensity as they are not correctly established except for a few dialogues. There will be logical errors in commercial cinema, but some action episodes and technical terminology do not make sense in this film's second half and climax. 

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan Review And Verdict:

Bade Miyan Chote Miyan aims to be a massive action entertainer, but it became an inadequate film that lacks engaging narration for most of the parts. Akshay Kumar and Tiger Shroff looked good in action sequences, and a few fun banters between them worked, but the film becomes monotonous and predictable as it progresses. The second half tests patience. An actor like Prithviraj Sukumaran fails to impress because of shabby characterization.
