Bell Bottom Movie: Review, Cast, Plot, Trailer, Release Date – All You Need To Know About Akshay Kumar, Vaani Kapoor, Lara Dutta’s Spy Thriller!
Times of India: “Overall, the film has its flaws, but it doesn’t fail to entertain. Bell Bottom lives up to the charm of a Bollywood, big-scale commercial film that deserved to be released on the big screen. And, of course, the fact that this film marks the reopening of theatres after months of shutdown due to the second wave of the pandemic, moviegoers can treat themselves to a grand cinema experience with this one.”
Koimoi: “We’re spoilt by choices as Akshay Kumar has given us memorable performances like Special 26, Holiday, Airlift & Baby. But even those four performances are distinctively different from each other. All of this, because one man decides just to get up and act well in films like these. The confidence of having a solid script translates to Akshay doing things that would be with us for a very long time.” Bell Bottom Trailer: Lara Dutta as Former Indian PM Indira Gandhi Stuns Netizens With Her Transformation!

Great Andhra: “The special effects (VFX) could have been better. The movie was shot in Scotland, but never once do you feel any liberties were taken with the narrative’s authenticity. The production designer who recreated the 1980s deserves special mention.”
India Today: “Finally, is it entertaining? Yes, as much as any Akshay Kumar film. Add to that the thrill of watching a film in theatres after what seems like an eternity and 3D-viewing, and you have a winner. Ultimately, we’re just happy that we’re a step closer to being business as usual at the movies.”
After reading the above reviews, Bell Bottom looks like a great watch. As all the critics have hailed Akki’s performance. So, go and watch the engaging thriller in the theatre now. Stay tuned!
