Bollywood Hungama (4/5)
On the whole, TIGER ZINDA HAI is a high-octane masala entertainer that stays true to its genre. At the box office, the audiences will give the film an epic ‘swagat’ as it is bound to entertain them thoroughly. This one is a SURE SHOT BLOCKBUSTER and nothing can stop it from setting new records.
His film simply isn’t interested in achieving any balance. The emphasis is unwaveringly on Salman the saviour. Katrina, fetching but flimsy, is compelled to take a backseat. Mercifully, the principal antagonist Abu Usman, played by Iran-born, UAE-raised Sajjad Delafrooz is no pushover: he makes his presence felt in no uncertain terms.Undeniably impressive in terms of its scale and flawless technical attributes, Tiger Zinda Hai is an exercise that rings utterly hollow. Its surface nous cannot conceal the sheer purposeless of all the noise it generates.
What’s Good: Despite a Salman Khan film when a director puts story as his priority, that’s a major good. Salman Khan proving yet again why he’s termed as Blockbuster Khan!What’s Bad: There are few loopholes but can be totally ignored as the movie never fails to keep you delighted by its grandness.Loo Break: Why? Tiger abhi zinda hai!Watch or Not?: Even if you have never got entertained by Salman Khan (Which could never be the case) go and watch this movie.
A pure entertainer, TZH is based on a real incident that shook the nation a few years ago – that of nurses being taken hostage in Iraq. In this case, the writer/director mixes them up into Indian and Pakistani nurses that thus allow both RAW and ISI scope to work together. Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif head operations of RAW and ISI respectively to rescue the nurses and bring them to safety from terrorist Abu Usman played by the gorgeous UAE-based Iranian actor Sajjad Delfarooz.Well scripted, well shot and engaging TZH is a good watch and a very entertaining film.
