It's really not a bad movie. The terrorists, for some reason, only fought with knifes. And to see them as husband and wife, that was rich! You may forgive it its follies. And the next star for the overall movie. A one line story, and then just showing off the 'mastery' of Hollywood style explosive, bazooking, rocket launching, staccato of bullets and action sequences.
There is also a sequence were terrorist have leaked poisonous gas, but it doesn't effect Salman because he has wrapped a cloth around his face! The cool sledding and the chase on the snow slopes with a challenge to not kill the wild wolves was really something. The sequence near the end where Salman comes of the door with a big ass machine gun to fight with an army of terrorist just made me laugh out loud. The next star would be for the H2So4 that Salman and Kat brew up! In simple words, whole movie was bleh. That's probably 1 star lost. Given, that it's a bold and tricky movie to make, stoking the coals of Islam terrorism in a masala Bollywood film, and all. I guess what made me sleep was the endless fight and action sequences, which was about the only thing in the whole movie.
Who knows, you may even love it. Well, it's the season of Santa Claus and it's lovely to believe that Santa does exist But puhhlease!! Wait, the stupidity doesn't end here. It gives the audience something that Hindi movies don't. Synopsis When a group of Indian and Pakistani nurses are held hostage in Iraq by a terrorist organization, a secret agent is drawn out of hiding to rescue them. The worst thing about the movie is lack of logic throughout the movie. And too much trivialization of covert operations by our defense services.
It's a Salman movie, and yet it made me go to sleep in the end sequences!! So what do we give the stars for? If I say she looked more lithe and killer than Salman, I would not be stretching it too far. But he still is Salman and not Shahrukh. But, well it's a Salman movie and anything goes. Unbelievable, 'coz I don't remember the last time I slept while watching a movie. Of course, it was over the top too. All said and done, I love seeing the two of them together. This list can go on.
Salman: Dum hai toh tu mujhe rokk ke dikha. Salman tells him, its a matter of country's pride and his colleague diffuses it within seconds. Where did it lose it stars?! Watch it in the Christmas cheer! I almost died by the flippancy of the whole thing. But for insurance sake, the director covered his back by almost glorifying the terror head by long scenes justifying his birth as a terrorist. Throughout the movie he was seen with hundreds of soldiers at his disposal but as the movie came to an end and it was high time the villain was killed, they showed him roaming around Salman with just a knife. All these trained militants could not hit there target sitting like a duck in front of them, but Salman managed to hit all of them! When a group of Indian and Pakistani nurses are held hostage in Iraq by a terrorist organization, a secret agent is drawn out of hiding to rescue them. I love movies, and I have a capacity to watch them well into the wee hours of the morning.
Katrina looks stunning, and she can pack quite a punch with her action sequences. Salman on the flip side looks all bloated up and beefed up and meaty. It was an entry worthy of his stature. All the fight sequences where Salman or Kat would fight 10 at once, would make me wonder if only these terrorist would have had a gun - the movie would have ended in 30 mins. That's a little too much to digest for the patriot in me. .
To give it the benefit of doubt, it had been a really long day for me and I had gone for a 11 p. But I can happily grant Salman any Supermangiri. At one point, there were 200 soldiers and our hero picked the biggest gun he can find, stood at one place and kept shooting. He put him in a room full of toxic gas, asked his men to wear gas mask and then go inside and shoot him. For Aman in the world! Villain: Tu mujhe rokk ke dikha. I really don't know what Kabir Khan was thinking.
Didn't understand the director's obsession with exploding empty cars. But, this movie is a total disaster. The Phantom's Eden that the movie tries to sell you. My first star, for the opening sequence of Salman Khan!! An edge of the seat drama with gnarling wolves salivating for the Tiger's cub, Junior. It just doesn't pick up from there at any time during the film. An awesome fight with a pack of wolves in the snow peaks of Austria.
Right from the start the movie goes in one direction, down. It has stunning visuals, a thrilling plot, a very predictable story and some great action. . . . . .
