Tiger – Alive & Awesome . . .
For me, ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ becomes the 7th film in a trot of Salman Khan wherein I emceed on 1st Day 3rd Show. Hang on! I am neither a film maniac nor a movie gossiper, but what enthrals me to pen down on this movie is the way in which the film has been depicted with guns up of the two rival nations revolting against the common goal – ‘terrorism’.
The movie is inspired by the real-life incident of the rescue of the Indian nurses held hostage in Iraq by terrorists. Gluing the story from where the story was left in its first edition of Ek Tha Tiger, Tiger and Zoya are living a peaceful life with their son as eight years have passed off since they paroled love over their personal missions. The violently soother music with stings of Arabic instrumentals have been classically portrayed with Salman and Katrina fling a vintage performance whether it be action or flirty romance. Shenoy (Girish Karnad) the ex-boss of Tiger tracks him and wants him to rescue 25 nurses of India who are sacked at a hospital by a dreadful terrorist organisation who shadowed Iraq headed by Abu Usman who played his cameo of master terrorist to perfection.
Salman Khan as usual is found larger than life equally supported by his lady charm Katrina Kaif who jumps into the array to rescue by aligning herself as one amongst the 15 Pakistani nurses, who are also held hostage along with the Indians.
Directed by Ali Abbas Zaffar the direction somewhere down the line got flattered as at times the audience were unable to keep them riveted through the movie’s runtime. Time and again there is a fragile instinct of Salman Khan invoking patriotism by bringing both the Indian and Pakistani agents together to masquerade against the terror. The roaring Salman Khan unveils his torso got the fans up on their feet. A dependable cameo by Paresh Rawal is highly adorned in the rescue operation. Stunts performed by actress Katrina Kaif were highly mesmerising who tried to match her competency equivalent to Salman Khan.
A movie which compels to glue your eyes on the screen with every frame having a versatile quotient labelled to revolt against terrorism, with a sense of gratification of mild love which spurts into an ecstatic partnership of a common goal against terrorism. This adds another feather in Salman’s cap & oh yes, also in Katrina’s hat.
