The first half of Akira starts with a bang and it looks completely interesting and engaging. However because of the unwanted episodes the interest dips down and Sonakshi Sinha has been just ok in the assigned role. The dose of drama dominates the real scenes and on the whole the first half of Akira has been just ok and is not upto the mark. The second half of the movie suffers in all the available ways to sustain and impress the audience. Though Sonakshi tries her bust to live up to the expectations, it is again the unwanted drama which happened to be the major reason for the film’s disappointment. The levels of entertainment have been completely down and the screenplay has been quite loose. On the whole the second half of Akira is a huge disappointment.
