With a delay of two weeks, the film has been in the midst of a few controversies. The film is inspired by real life conspiracies and received its certification from CBFC recently. Apart from this, critics and audience reviews were also mixed. It seems like the backdrop of the story may have proved to be the stumbling block for Pakistan.
Neeraj Pandey has given blockbuster thrillers in the past like Special Chabbis and A Wednesday and is known for engaging the audiences.
Neeraj, whose film Special 26 released in Pakistan, but others like A Wednesday, Baby and even MS Dhoni did not release there, feels that many of films have a problem in Pakistan. They are a part of the covert Data and System Diagnostic team in the Indian Army.
Aiyaary brings to celluloid three facets of the Indian Army, with the film giving insights not only into the battleground defense mechanisms but also showcased the intelligence and bureaucratic decision makings of the Indian Army.
Sidharth Malhotra, Manoj Bajpayee, Rakulpreet Singh were said to be at their coolest best!
