VERDICT: 3 /5 Stars

When every aspects closing their doors someone has to punch feistily. This concept primarily builds the plot around Akira of Jodhpur Rajasthan. Akira is nothing but a fight against four corrupt police officer who mistakenly abducts a college girl Akira and tried to encounter her with two others but luckily she manages to run, further going through with all topsy-turvy situation it reaches the old method type climax. So it’s just a simple revenge film, as simple as that and The End.
But you can’t expect just this much from Director A.R.Murugadoss, it’s more riveting thriller where some emotional quotes and grisly truth about the police system comes out nicely. The character of Akira is strong, they build it very firmly. When she is small she witnessed throwing of an acid on a girl just in front of her eyes which prompted her to take Karate classes and eventually one day fighting against one punk, accidently she pours acid on him. It takes 3 years to prove her innocence. Afterward she lives quietly with her mother but thrill is still awaiting for her in Mumbai where four police officer did the crime and somehow their attempts goes entirely wrong. This looks a perfect conspiracy till when Akira wittingly impinges with them.
Akira is not impeccable action thriller, it lacks surprises, strong elements and more powerful punches from Akira (Sonakshi Sinha), her behavior is volatile, and repetitively putting this kind of strong character into the Asylum was disheartening. The major surprise element is #AnuragKashyap, his screen presence is literally powerful, as a cruel, cunning drug addict officer he actually catches the attention, hopefully if he played the role of (Kaizad Khambatta) Karan Johar in Bombay Velvet he would have definitely made the difference. Other surprise is Konkona sen sharma, she was awesome in her characterization, I really enjoyed her watching as a pregnant police officer, her everything was just perfect, her walk, her talk, her belly. Sonakshi Sinha as a protagonist is just ok, her performance was average, I think Director was more interested in showing conspiracy and in the end he was left with unwilling climax.
As a film Mera Naam Akira is another women centric collage but like heroic entry it lacks the powerful climax. Strongly, I wanted more punches from Akira.      

Morning show in Regent saw a very fewer response, when I entered into the theatre room It was almost empty but surprisingly after interval some more people joins me inside the toilet they were quite satisfied with the film discussing about the 1st half that it is engaging, if other half continued with the similar pace this would be an interesting film altogether. So it’s clear that people are liking it and I think Sunday will be very crucial for Akira… Best of Luck !
