Verdict : Salman Khan brings a treat for all his fans with Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Do not miss it __________________________________________________________
Eid has come and so has Bollywood’s favorite Salman Khan’s Bajarangi Bhaijaan. 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' brings back the ace actor-director combo of Salman Khan & Kabir Khan after the super success of their last venture 'Ek Tha Tiger'. Thus, the expectation level is at its highest level, and looking at the promos of the film, the movie looks like an emotional tale trying to portray a different side of Salman Khan. So, let's find out whether 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' will establish a new image of the ace entertainer or might end up being another verbose type of film on the lines of 'Jai Ho'.
'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' is a story of a mute Pakistani girl Shahida (Harshaali Malhotra), who came to India with his mother to seek religious blessings. Due to some circumstances, Shahida accidently gets lost and meets Pavan Kumar Chaturvedi (Salman Khan), a simple man with a golden heart. Pavan and his fiancee Rasika (Kareena Kapoor) try to find out about Shahida's whereabouts, and finally come to know that she is from Pakistan. Pavan and Rasika try their level best to send Shahida back to her country but fails miserably. Finally, Pavan decides to do this task on his own and enters Pakistan.
Now, how will Bajrangi survive in foreign land and will he be able to help Munni meet her parents. This forms the rest of the story…
Positive Points :-
We have said it before and we say it again. It is enough for newcomers to have The Salman Khan’s cameo in their films just to make it a hit and when a movie is all about The Bhai, all you can expect is entertainment in full swing. Salman plays his character with sheer honesty and he makes you fall in love with him all over again with this one too. The movie deals with the issue of cross border tension and message of humanity and loving each other with excellence.
Kareena Kapoor Khan is beautiful. Her beauty adds to every scene that she is in. Talking about Nawazuddin. Well, the man is a true artist. He manages to overshadow Salman in every sequence he is in. However, it is Harshaali Malhotra who steals the show. Playing a mute girl, the little wonder speaks through her eyes and her innocence is heart-warming. And to everyone’s surprise, even though this is a Bhai movie, it has only has a few action sequences, which are not at all over-the-top. This is a welcoming change.
Negative Points :-
The movie has its share of clichés. Despite making Bajrangi’s character endearing, Kabir also made him boring at times. Bajrangi’s honesty is too much to handle. After a while, just like all of Salman’s films, the movie only talks about Salman and how amazing he is after all. Kareena does not have much screen space and is only there to add the desired glam quotient.
Technical Points :-
Director Kabir Khan knows his work very well. The filmmaker selects the best of actors, the best of locations and the best of humour to make this film worth a watch. While the first half has some interesting and engaging sequences with the introduction of characters, the second half has some sequences that are too dramatic to be true.
Like Bajrangi’s entry in Pakistani without a passport or a visa. The movie has some extremely scenic locations which are a treat to the eyes. Also, the music given by Pritam fits correctly in the plot. The best part about the film is that it has no item number, which may act as a hindrance in the story-line. The run-time is just fine. The cinematography is amazing and so is the editing of the film.
On the whole, just like the past few years, this Eid too, Bhai brings a treat for all his fans with Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Do not miss it.
