Ek Tha Tiger- Movie Review


First day first show! Believe it or not, but a show at 9 30 am was housefull and probably for the first time in years, I made sure the tickets were booked in advance! Reason? Do I really need to even say it? Salman Khan ya! Duh!

So, as we’ve seen in the trailers, Salman Khan plays an agent from RAW (India Intelligence Agency). The story of the movie revolves around a scientist from the Trinity College who is a suspect for selling the secrets of missile technology of India to Pakistan. While he’s on his mission, he meet Katrina Kaif who works as the scientist’s caretaker. Then of course, mashallah, he falls in love with her and romance happens, thriller happens and action happens. To know more, go to IMDB man!

The entire film looks so rich and beautiful I can’t tell you! Superb cinematography! Breathtaking visuals and good direction. Kabir Khan’s directed John Abraham starrer Kabul Express which wasn’t that great and New York which was good so I was hoping this would be a decent watch, keeping in mind its also a Yash Raj film. The actors look well styled. I felt the story of the film was good too even though most of it was super predictable, filmy and the concentration was more on the love aspect.

Salman Khan, after a very long time does not overpower the film. His character is intense and yet simple. He’s not trying to act too smart like in Dabangg, Wanted, Bodyguard, etc. He’s never looked hotter and I wouldn’t change a thing about the way he’s acted! Katrina’s role is also as important as his and she looks beautiful with her natural make-up. She also has some action scenes for which she got lots of whistles and hoots. I think both have done justice to their parts. There’s good chemistry and even with the height difference, they compliment each other very well. Ranvir Shorey plays an integral part in the movie as Salman’s friend and he’s acted well too.

In a movie like this, the background music plays an important role and I must say that they’ve done a good job with it. The ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ tune is perfect for the movie! The songs are nice. I love ‘Mashallah’ and even ‘Banjara Banjara’ and ‘Laapata’ are decent.

Overall, it’s not a superhit film for me but I was entertained throughout and I think Salman should do more films like this.

Rating– 3.5/5
