'Kick' is a vintage Salman-Khan movie, one that unapologetically glorifies his every move, muscle and mannerism.
Kick comprises all the histrionics that come with a Salman Khan film action, comedy, romance and melodrama.You don't have to be a scriptwriter to know what happens next. You just need to leave your brains home and enjoy the story, if it can be called that. As the film ends with Singh saying, "don't try understanding me, just love me", please don't try to understand a Salman Khan film. Simply, love it.
A quintessentially Salman-esque film, Kick is every bit the mas ala entertainer that the Bhai-worshipping audience was craving for after Jai Ho. Seen purely in the context of its genre, Kick is an entertainer worth a couple of hours of your time on the weekend; more so if you seriously take to his dialogue 'dil main ata hoon, samajh main nahi'. The film is endearing in bits, but rational? We'll let you decide.
Kick is an official amalgamation of Dhoom and a bunch of trademark Salman films. To its credit, the film quite achieves what it sets out for: massy trappings. Salman in very few roles genuinely seems to enjoy himself and Kick is one of the sparing few. If you don't mind paying for massive canvas, high voltage action, chemistry with a tinge of electricity and songs that will get you ecstatic this is your shot at getting a solid high! Whistle baja time 'coz this is a Bollywood fillum.
Kick has a lot of twists and is entertaining in parts. It's not a typical Salman film with no plot! Here there is quite a bit happening, which will keep you engaged.This is Sajid Nadiadwala's first film as a director and he doesn't disappoint. The production quality of the film is of top class and the action scenes on the streets of Poland are of international standards. For Salman Khan fans, it's a great show but for others it's going to be an average affair.
