If you felt Akshay Kumar was getting typecast in comic roles in film after film, you need to watch him in this movie. One of his finest performances so far, Namastey London, also marks the coming of age of an actor who was often dubbed as an action hero or a funster.
Katrina is a revelation. She comes up with a spirited performance yet again. She handles the complex part with remarkable ease. The pretty lass is only getting better with every film!
Rishi Kapoor is in terrific form. Upen Patel is highly competent. The actor has a substantial role which he carries off skillfully.
Himesh Reshammiya's music is excellent. The tunes come instantly on your lips and what elevates the songs are its picturization.
Namastey London is a superior product that blends romance, drama and humor beautifully. The film has all it takes to woo the moviegoers.
Say namaste to Namastey London, a complete family entertainer. Strongly recommended! --platform47.com
NAMASTEY LONDON is not one of those usual romantic films. The clash of cultures, the widening gap between parents and kids, also racism -- judging someone by the color of the skin -- NAMASTEY LONDON tackles it all. At the same time, it evokes patriotic feelings at vital points in the story. --platform47.com
Akshay Kumar was born as Rajiv Hari Om Bhatia on the 9th September 1967 in Amritsar to a middle class Punjabi household. His father was a government worker. He grew up in Delhi and later in Mumbai s Koliwada area. He did his schooling at the Don Bosco School and his college years were spent in Khalsa College, where he showed an inclination for sports. He studied martial arts in Bangkok while working as a chef.
He came back to Delhi to teach martial arts when one of his students suggested he try his hand in modeling, which led to an offer to act in Deedar as the lead actor. Akshay was linked with several of his co-stars like Raveena Tandon, Shilpa Shetty, Pooja Batra and even Rekha. He is currently married to actress turned entrepreneur Twinkle Khanna and they have a son Araav.
Akshay Kumar didn t grab any headlines with his debut Saugandh in 1991. Deedar, Dancer and Khiladi were released in 1992. With Khiladi being one of the biggest hits of the year. In 1993, he came out with atleast six movies all of which fell flat. But he more than made up for it in 1994 with hits like Mohra with Raveena Tandon, Yeh Dillagi with Kajol and Saif Ali Khan and Mein Khiladi Tu Anari with Saif Ali Khan and Shilpa Shetty. He received a nomination for the Filmfare Best Actor award for his romantic role in Yeh Dillagi.
He tried his hand in the comedy stream quite successfully in 2000 with Hera Pheri, which was a laugh riot. Dhadkan with pal Suneil Shetty and Shilpa Shetty also was a good performer at the box office. In 2006 he starred in a sequel to Hera Pheri titled Phir Hera Pheri. As was the former, the sequel became a huge success at the box office. He established himself as a successful comedy actor with a series of comedy releases.
2007 proved to be Kumar's most successful year during his career in the industry, and as described by box office analysts, ""probably the best ever recorded by an actor, with four outright hits and no flops."" Singh Is Kinng was a huge success at the box office and broke the first-week worldwide record of Om Shanti Om, the previous highest figure. He also made a debut on the small screen with Fear Factor India.
2009 saw Akshay in various roles. Deepika Padukone starrer, Chandni Chowk to China, directed by Nikhil Advani, was a critical and commercial failure at the box office. His next release, 8 x 10 Tasveer, directed by Nagesh Kukunoor, was a critical and commercial failure. His next release was Kambakkht Ishq. Blue was released on 16 October 2009 and collected Rs. 42 crores at the box-office. His release in 2009 was Priyadarshan's De Dana Dan.
He then appeared in the 2010 comedy, House Full, directed by Sajid Khan which, reportedly, garnered the second-highest opening weekend collection of all time. Kumar's next release was Khatta Meetha, directed by Priyadarshan.
