Special 26's pace is the USP of the film
Special 26 is a film that's well-written and executed. Neeraj Pandey has not let his audience down after A Wednesday and has delivered a perfectly logical drama thriller. Sure it is a cat and mouse chase between a fake and a real CBI group but the pace that could have been a joykill is actually the USP of the film. Twitter is going wild with people appreciating the film and film critics are giving glowing review to the film.

Akshay Kumar, after Oh My God has again landed himself a very different and meaty role. It is a shame when he does a film like Joker that devalues him as an actor when we know that he can pull of a Ajay (his character's name in Special 26).

He neither overplays or underplays the role of the master mind of a heist manager with his usual suave, charm and wittcism. Anupam Kher after Silver Linnings Playbook's forgettable role is again in his element in this film. Manoj Bajpai is as usual impeccable as the real CBI agent and Jimmy Shergill gets a good role in the film.

One of the tweeple, who is obviously a fan of Akshay Kumar but has been disappointed with his latest sojourn tweeted, “Looks like a good one ... Finally Akshay is bringing faith back !!!” A person from Pakistan also said, “#Special26 took Fantastic Opening in Pakistan! Opening around 90% plus at some places,Akshay Kumar has Huge fan following in Pakistan.” Shekhar Kapoor also tweeted that he wants to see the film courtesy the good reviews the film is getting.

Taking inspiration from the film, people nows wants to raid various celebrities house. While one wanted to raid MS Dhoni's house, another wanted to raid Sridevi's house to see whether she has used botox to look so young (what else!). The only thing remaining is the box office collection, which will show whether the movie actually has a mass appeal or not.
