In the dark world of intelligence and espionage, all information is guarded in the name of national security. But some stories escape the fiercely guarded classified files, stories that become legends. This is one such story, a story that shook the very foundation of this dark world. In a government employees' neighbourhood in New Delhi, there lived a rugged, handsome and mysterious bachelor about whom his neighbours knew nothing. That was because he was India's top spy, an officer with the Research and Analysis Wing (RAW), India's external intelligence agency. This man was known even in official corridors as TIGER (Salman Khan). Tiger is sent on a relatively easy and safe mission to Dublin, Ireland to observe a scientist of Indian origin who is suspected of sharing his research findings with the Pakistan defence establishment. Tiger attempts to meet the scientist but is not successful. He tries to befriend the scientist's part time home caretaker, Zoya (Katrina Kaif). As Tiger begins... Written by

At 94:58, Gopi mentions that 623 and 612 flights departed from London and Frankfurt that day (pretty close to the respective daily averages), but then he proceeds to equate that to 825,802 passengers, which would equate about 688 passengers per flight, a long stretch given that the average capacity of a Boeing 757, which, even assuming all of those flights were Boeing 757-300s, is more than double the maximum capacity of 289 of a Boeing 757-300.
Further, even assuming that particular day was a particularly abnormal day, and ignoring the film's own estimate of 623 takeoffs on the said day, the busiest day ever at Heathrow only saw a traffic of a total of 233,561 passengers (arriving + departing). Given that Frankfurt has the third largest passenger capacity in Europe behind Heathrow and Paris, the total number of passengers at both airports combined barely breaches the halfway mark of the 825,802 passengers quoted by Gopi in the movie.
Further really stretching this, and even considering all airports in London (and not just Heathrow, ignoring the total 623 number of departures which is met by Heathrow alone), the average number of departing and arriving passengers in all London airports combined is still 366,102 leaving us with an average of 183,054 departing passengers from all London airports, which even assuming an equal number from Frankfurt, is again barely half the quoted number of 825,802 passengers.

Salman finds love in a time of political tensions.
FASTER than Usain Bolt, more charming than Rudolph Valentino and able to leap from building rooftops gracefully.
Salman Khan does these and more, including stripping off to show off his torso and wiggling his hips to dance music.
However, his two most impressive feats are stopping a runaway electric tram with only his jacket, and becoming Evil Knievel to jump into an aircraft that's just taken off.
Salman plays Indian spy Tiger, who's never taken a day off in 12 years and hasn't had time for romance.
His next assignment takes him to Ireland to keep an eye on a professor (Roshan Seth, who appeared in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom), who may be leaking missile secrets to Pakistan.
His first introduction to the professor's assistant, Zoya (Katrina Kaif), is by way of her lithe body and wiggly buttocks. Which tough guy could resist that?
To cut a long story short, Tiger falls for Zoya, who is revealed to be a Pakistani spy. The movie purports to show him killing her, but I knew that this flick wouldn't dare to portray our dear hero as a heartless killer.
The two run off together but not before triggering an international manhunt from the two countries. They attempt to lie low in Havana but those Cuban robbers just can't stay away from a handsome Indian couple.
When Tiger's boss asks him why he ran off, he says that he's now choosing his heart over his mind. Dear viewers, this is an eye-opener.
The movie wants us to believe that love will conquer all and even makes a case that Romeo and Juliet will bring two spy agencies that hate each other to the table to tackle a common enemy.
This was my first Salman movie, and I must say that I was pleasantly surprised by his clownish antics, cute dialogue, non-stop roller-coaster action and his chemistry with Katrina. The final part must be because the two used to date each other.
Katrina shows that she's no shrinking violet as her character beats the hell out of some baddies.
I also liked the travelogue feel of the movie, which takes viewers to New Delhi, Ireland, Istanbul and Havana.
The dance scenes in Ireland and Cuba are colorful and full of verve, and they reflect the cultures of the countries. For example, there's a salsa beat to the music in Cuba. For this, credit goes to director Kabir Khan.
However, the movie's interminable length, implausible action and cheesy love theme will get you down.
Love transcends boundaries, but it can only get you so far with viewers.
