Anil Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap starrer AK Vs AK is garnering rave reviews from the critics and fans. While both the stars are on cloud nine, Oscar-winning filmmaker Danny Boyle praised the venture during a Q n A session in British Film Institute (BFI). Appreciating Anil Kapoor’s performance he said, “Anil, it’s an exhilarating film. A success on all levels. A wonderful idea which in other hands might quickly run out of steam, here it sustains magnificently. Intriguing – I didn’t spot the twist, excruciating – the way reputations and egos are trashed, exciting – it has real breathless propulsion, visceral – the car smashing into you is brilliantly done, and it is truly, truly funny. It shamelessly uses every trick in the book to tear apart the film industry and modern media.”
He added, “None of this would matter if the acting wasn’t inspired and brilliantly sustained. You are both superb foils for each other – what a pleasure for me to see Anurag act like this! And the risks you take, and the length of the plank you walk, is truly breathtaking. I thought I was watching the end of your career and the beginning of another one all at the same time! Pacino, DeNiro, Hemsworth (!) will want the remake rights though I’m not sure they could deliver like you can. Congrats to all. What a treat.”
The series recently grabbed the headlines when IAF slammed the series for Anil Kapoor wearing uniform. The official handle of IAF tweeted, “The IAF uniform in this video is inaccurately donned & the language used is inappropriate. This does not conform to the behavioural norms of those in the Armed Forces of India. The related scenes need to be withdrawn.”
