Watch or Not?: The hardest bit about average films are that you are always in two minds whether to recommend them or to suggest you let it pass. However, for a change, I am suffering from no dubiousness this time. Don’t miss Holiday for the sheer fun of w

In case you’re wondering the significance of the title (with a gun for the alphabet ‘L’); it’s about an army man’s annual vacation that turns out to be rather eventful. From foiling multiple terrorist attacks, destroying sleeper cells, and falling in love

Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty movie review: Akshay can still deliver a perfect roundhouse kick but he has been looking his age for a while now.

With the influx of multiplexes in India, stories that were considered experimental at a point are slowly finding their way to the big screen.

Holiday A Soldier is Never Off Duty is a fair watch for people who have not seen Thuppakki. For ones who have watched the Tamil film, this Hindi remake would not excite one bit.
Noyon Jyoti Parasara, Now Running
If you are a 3A fan – Akshay, Action and Adventure, then this is a recommended watch for you. Rest all, please take a pass on this Bollywood movie. Yet another reason why you must watch Holiday: A Soldier Is Never Off Duty, is the beautiful message with which the movie ends. Dedicated to all the Army personnel and their families, the movie salutes every person serving in the Defence forces keeping the nation safe and secure.

Conclusion: 'Holiday - A Soldier Is Never Off Duty' is somewhat muddled by its off putting romantic track but Akshay Kumar in his most wanted action packed avatar is kickass. A mast must watch for Akshay and action buffs..

Entertainers Akshay Kumar and A.R. Murugadoss come together in the year's touted box office orgy after 'Jai Ho' with 'Holiday Soldier Is Never Off Duty' - the Hindi remake of Tamil blockbuster 'Thuppakki' (starring Vijay and Kajal Aggarwal). They are successful in delivering in sufficient entertainment dose for B-town action buffs and Akshay Kumar fans. But goes off duty to make any chemistry between Akshay and Sonakshi, who pop up oddly in songs and dance, spoiling the action, and on going romanticism with Akshay. But Khiladi and with his dare devil stunts thankfully complete the mission to at least thrill its target audience.

The thing that makes a thriller click is the turn of the events as the mystery is solved before eyes layer by layer, if that is not a case then a thriller becomes a mundane affair which just you just want to get done and over with it. Holiday is one such
Abhishek Bhardwaj, Rate Movies Here
On the whole, 'Holiday' is just an average film, no big deal, no big stakes and no big initial at box office, maybe the film picks up with word of mouth publicity but that is not an easy task for a film with no stars

On the whole, ‘Holiday’ is just about okay. If you enjoy masala films…then this one would be for you.

A sweet, simple story about a plain Jane, Muskan (debutante Onjolie Nair)  who follows her heart, and helped by the combined talents of Pooja Bhatt, Ranjit Barot, Dino Morea along with some excellent camerawork and editing, succeeds in trapizing her way   to a place in her father's and the audience's hearts.

Vipul Shah and Akshay Kumar have a decent track record with hits like Waqt, Namaste London and Singh is Kingh behind them. So when they team up with the director for ‘Ghajini’ to remake the Tamil Blockbuster Thupakki in Hindi you expect it to work wonders

Since Murugadoss is a commercial filmmaker, he always gets big stars to work with him and then he goes ahead with a safe bet, remaking a south film. Holiday is the remake of the Tamil film Thupakki. So here's a bit about the plot.
