Read Detail Review
Not that Kabir Khan, the director of the film’s first part is at fault, but we didn’t like the film. But with just change in director, this film surely did way better than its first installment. Director Ali Abbas Zafar unites with the writer of the first film Neelesh Misra and directs this as simplified spy story.
Alekh (Story) – Patkatha (Screenplay)
Generally, spy films tend to be fast and complex to be edge of the seat. This film was a surprise exception. It was fast paced initially but then it maintained a balanced speed, events well explained and may be seem too explaining at times, and it was predictable, yet the film kept us engaged till the end.
The masses just want Salman Khan, they aren’t into the whole spy agency thing and so the movies focus more on the former, which is a good thing. In the end, films and especially Bhai films are all about whistles and claps.
The editing needed more attention and the situations needed to be more believable. The locations on the other hand are so real and convincing. The VFX are tremendous, one of the best to come out of Bollywood.
Based on the 2014 abduction of Indian nurses by ISIL, the film lacked one thing, that is to be real, guns can anytime out-do a hand to hand combat and hence several films fail at this part.
Nonetheless, when Salman Khan takes off his shirt, every debate ends there. Also, when everything is going enjoyable in the film, you tend to ignore deep logic. In fact, potential blockbuster entertaining films like Tiger Zinda Hai should be judged with reasonable logic only. Applying intellect will otherwise will spoil almost every movies’ fun. Talking about intellect, we don’t even apply that in real life, that is the very reason two countries are still enemies since ages.
The notion this movie sends out regarding India and Pakistan is applaudable.
Talking about the actors, the film gives good screen space to every actor and puts Salman as the center of attention very cleverly. Well, no complaints and regrets there, but we wish Kat had a bit more to do since she was too good in the film.
Salman Khan as Tiger is fierce and determined like the name. The bhai of Bollywood looks fresh, leaner, in form and at his best. It was good to see him at ease in his role, an impressive balanced performance.
Katrina Kaif as Zoya is too in full form and she completely rocks every scene.
Sajjad Delfrooz as Abu Usman is a true terror, to act like a bad guy and to make audiences fear you is a difficult task made easy by greats actors like him and great make up artists too.
Angad Bedi, Sudeep as Zahir Pakistani ISI agent, Kumud Mishra, Girish Karnad as Shenoy are all great in their roles. Paresh Rawal steals the show with his unexpected role and great performance.
Geet Sangeet (Music)
The movie had two songs, Dil Diyan Gallan syncs perfectly and is already a beautiful hit. Swag Se Swagat in the end credits is the remaining adrenaline stimulation the film might have missed. The background score is just perfect for a spy thriller and to produce excitement.
Nirnay (FilmyCurry Verdict)
If you liked Ek Tha Tiger, you are in for a treat now. If you didn’t like the former, you will be relieved because this one is surely better.
If you are a Salman Khan fab, you are in for a grand feast. If not, you will enjoy this movie anyhow and the message it sends out.
