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.

Definitely a one time watch.... Watch it in theaters for: 1)All the action sequences(specially Kat in second half...it even beats the BOND series) 2)Mesmerizing Salman-Kat Chemistry....(Even they look awesome here :D ) 3)Few witty dialogs about Indo-Pak relations(Its from a common man's heart specially the one at the end) 4)Salman Salman and Salman....("kya TIGER!!!....TIGER to kutte ka naam hota hai..") He portrays an extraordinary spy who's needs are as ordinary as our's(After long time he play a common guy)...Its all about sallu-kat romance and love with a strong flavor of action(Best part of movie)
Please don't search for following : 1)LOGIC 2)LOGIC 3)LOGIC Just don't expect logic or loads of twists...keep your brains out and enjoy the film!!!
