"Special Chabbis is 2013's first film with a strong and a good story. With superb actors like Anupam, Manoj, Akshay and Jimmy in the film, it is a must watch. Neeraj Pandey has done it again, this time better then."
Story takes place in various cities of India during the 1980s and 1990s. Ajay Singh, Sharma ji and their gang carry out a very meticulously planned robbery only on those people who have black money or are corrupt. As there people won't report the missing of black money and hence their targets are always politician, businessmen and bureaucrats. Their gang keeps on changing as they shift from one city to another.
However, their con doesn't remain hidden and CBI officer Wasim Khan starts investigating them and looks for any clue whatsoever.
In one of the incident Ajay, Sharma ji and their group con Senior Inspector Ranvir Singh. From that point of time he decides to aid Wasim and CBI in tracing them.
On the other hand these conmen decides to carry out a final robbery.
To know who wins, watch Special Chabbis.
Special Chabbis is based on real incidents that took place in Mumbai in 1987. 26 people posing as fake Income Tax Officer raided a jewellery store and tool away jewellery worth lakhs.
Neeraj Pandey has perfectly and very smartly depicted each element of the real incident. The original CBI trying to catch the fake one, their cunningness, struggle and final theft are depicted pitch perfect.
After a long time and a dozen of stupid film, finally Akshay Kumar is part of a no nonsense film. He has shown he can do justice to a good script and he can act. He has perfectly donned the role of a cunning Ajay Singh who cannot be caught.
Anupam Kher is a genius. He can play any role given to him with perfection. His comic timing in the film is perfect.
Manoj Bajpai's performance might shadow the performance of others. His "Asli Wale CBI" style is amazing and at the same time hilarious.
Jimmy Shergil, Kajal and Divya have done justice to there small but important roles.
Cinematography will be appreciated a lot by anyone who watches the film. Essence of different cities of India shown in the film is perfectly caught. Corruptness and the way thefts were held are also shown like original.
