Sometimes you go and watch a movie with least expectation and then it turns out to be surprisingly good after watching it. Vikramaditya Motwane directed AK Vs AK is one of those thriller films which was engaging right till the end.

AK Vs AK tells the story of a heated debate in an open conference which turns ugly when a Bollywood director Anurag Kashyap decides to avenge an insult on him by a popular actor Anil Kapoor by kidnapping his daughter, Sonam Kapoor. The supposed-to-be-reality show takes a different turn when the kidnapping turns out to be true and Sonam Kapoor goes missing.
Due to the pandemic situation, we are witnessing very different and unusual content this year on OTT. Though am missing watching movies in theaters, am liking the genuine concept and innovative story line of Indian films on OTT. AK Vs AK is probably the first attempt by an Indian director to create a reality-based film with so much unexpected thrills and chases. Hats off to the writer, Avinash Sampth, and director Vikramaditya Motwane (Udaan, Trapped, Lootere) for trying out something new which is thought provoking, engaging and brilliantly acted.

On the flip side, the editing, background score and the camera work could have been better to make it an excellent but I will still not complain thanks to the brilliant concept and amazing execution. AK Vs AK belongs to both Anil Kapoor and Anurag Kashyap for wonderful acting. Anil Kapoor impresses with his natural performance as he transforms from a movie star into a struggling father desperately trying to save his daughter. I loved Anurag Kashyap for his cunning act that keeps you entertained to the core.
