What’s Good: Vidyut Jamwal – What a body he has! for a moment he reminds me of Sylvester Stallone. Some good action scenes

Loo break: Go for a break during all songs in the movie.
Watch or Not?: One time Watch.
Paisa Wasool? If you like action then yes! If you don’t like action then don’t bother watching the movie.
Jamwal plays an Indian army commando who breaks free from beyond the China border after capture and much third degree torture. His one aim now is to ‘clean up the dirt within’. In other words, the guys who make it impossible for the good guys in the armed forces function — politicians, and goons who want to become politicians. Fortunately for him, and us, Jamwal doesn’t get too much speaking time. Having said what he has to, he gets down the real business of decimating the bad guys, one by one.
Commando Karanveer Dogra comes to the rescue of damsel in distress Simrit (Chopra) who is on the run from the evil, cruel AK (Ahlawat). This AK is quite a piece of work. He is constantly on his phone, guffawing at Santa-Banta jokes, snarling at the cowering good folks of the Punjab village he lives in, and leering at the spirited Simrit. If Jamwal is just right for his part, Ahlawat who left a sizeable impact in Gangs Of Wasseypur and who has been biding his time in bit parts till now, carves out a lovely old-style Bollywood villain, all costume and bluster and grinning menace.
Commando is definitely a One Man Army, all the way. The man here in question is Vidyut Jamwal. Jamwal, who looted all hearts with full Force some one and half years ago brings back his voluminous talents to the fore, giving away one of the best action performances in this decade. From climbing roofs to walk-past-sliding-car-windows, this B-town hunk made it look like a cakewalk, but with a lot more flourish and conviction! Clearly the new Khiladi that Bollywood has been gifted with; Vidyut manages to bamboozle the audience with every action set-piece, clearly sculpted out for him. And with that amazingly sculpted hot-bod, this action superman is here to stay. Pooja Chopra delivers an okayish performance with nothing much to highlight about as she painfully tries the echo the lines from Kareena’s Jab We Met in typical aped-Geet avatar. Expectedly, she fails miserably. Jaideep Ahlawat as the menacing AK stuns the audience with an enthralling villainous act, sans his eyeballs. And his sudden outbreak into Santa-Banta chut-kule mode adds to the hilarious content of the film, too!
