Akshay Kumar, Kajal Aggarwal, Jimmy Shergill, Manoj Bajpai and Anupam Kher starrer ‘Special 26’ is a well written script.

‘Special 26’ is inspired from a real life incident and a group of con artists who in a tricky way pulled off many robberies during 1980's. They robbed famous businessmen and politicians by hiding their real identity. They pretended to be CBI or Income tax officers and raided many billionaires’ house, politicians and businessman. Dated 19-March-1987, the same con group posing as CBI officers executed a raid in the daytime on the Opera House branch of Tribhovandas Bhimji Zaveri in Mumbai and disappeared with jewelery worth lakhs. Before they could know their real identity and spot them it was too late. The con group would have already done their job in a very polished way.

Speaking about performances, Akshay Kumar as usual steals the show. He pulled the story really well on his shoulder and performed exceptionally well.
