AK vs AK review: Anurag Kashyap adds his edge to Anil Kapoor’s ‘jhakasness’

AK vs AK is now out on Netflix and the Anurag Kashyap and Anil Kapoor starrer brings together quite the experimental watch with this thriller.

The Anurag Kashyap and Anil Kapoor starrer, AK vs AK has created a lof buzz. And today, AK vs AK review is what has been taking over the internet and how. Helmed by Vikramaditya Motwane and Vikram Sampath, the film features Yogita Bihani, Sonam Kapoor, Harshvardhan Rane. We all knew this is going to be interesting, but did we know what’s about to happen? Definitely no!

Throughout the movie, we see Anurag and Anil take the centre roles, bringing their not so best version of themselves, or maybe worse? Without giving away any spoilers, we do know that this is not something we’ve seen earlier, ever.

While the highlight is obviously just how the actors play themselves, this isn’t all that meta after all. With everyone taking the role of their own selves, things seem twisted, but you are also left awestruck. For a better part of the movie, there are too many questions, yet, you are constantly hooked to the film. Over the due course of the nearly 100 minutes of the movie, there are digs, abuses, drama, and whatnot. While we feel like an outsider trying to get into the inside of Bollywood, there’s much more to it. Over the due course of this AK vs AK review, you will understand why we say so.

The movie is not flawless, for obvious reasons, given it is an experimental thing for Indian cinema. In fact, almost just when we are getting comfortable with the idea of what we see, things turn haywire. However, you are still kept hooked and engaged to your screen, but there’s a fine line between the realistic acting and acting, otherwise. Before moving forward on AK vs AK review, you must watch the trailer!

Check out the trailer here:

Both the AKs seem to bring quite the platter of emotions, actions, and drama to the table. And not just the film, but that is also the highlight of every AK vs AK review. With views and ideologies that are rather opposing, we see them all become a blur. The reason you will like the film is because of Anil and Anurag goes without saying. However, something that also seems to establish a connection is the way the conversations follow on-screen, quite naturally.

Of course, not all is rosy about this AK vs AK review, much like the film. Given the genre that the film falls into, one is likely to have mixed responses to the end. With top-notch acting, an experiment that takes off well, AK vs AK is a fine watch. For a first of its kind for Bollywood, there weren’t any roadblocks, but just an uneven path in bits and pieces. Anurag Kashyap and Anil Kapoor all the way for this one!
