The Most awaited Movie of the year 2012, Yash Raj Films First Project with Salman Khan, Directed by Kabul express & New York's much celebrated Director Kabir Khan, with Katrina 'Bankable' Kaif as female lead, also Big names like Girish Karnad, Roshan Seth & Ranvir Shorey HAS ARRIVED, with a BANG!
Salman khan, the most bankable star on box office today, with 4 previous movies making over 100 crores each, is the real superstar of single screen as well as multiplexes today. According to a popular belief in Bollywood these days, If you get Salman's name associated with your movie, it WILL do well on box office. Ek tha Tiger, was being talked about from the very day the project was announced. Salman's fans were eager to watch the movie, based on the life of a spy, expecting a action packed movie. Critics however wanted to watch what Yash raj & Kabir has to offer, and will Salman deliver something different, something extraordinary?
The story is simple, A successful spy falls in love during a mission, following a lead he discovers his love is actually a Pakistani ISI agent . They part only to meet again during an international peace summit, a dance & a chat leads to something big, Lovers go missing & make both RAW & ISI come together. Script of the Movie keeps you wanting more, holds you there with a curious mind asking, whats next? Screenplay is commendable, being a Kabir Khan movie, it was expected. ETT has been shot on beautiful locations like Ireland, Cuba & Turkey. Cinematography is good, Music is gaining popularity with time, few songs like Banjara, Mashaallah & Laapata are already chart busters. But the biggest factor that will make critics judging this movie feel good, is the performances by both Salman and Katrina. Expressive they both are, and deliver an exceptional performance just what was required for this movie.
However unlike his previous movies, where Salman was seen doing out of the world (read South inspired) action, this movie had an action director who has been stunt coordinator in movies like King Kong, Iron man, Ghost Rider, The Bourne Ultimatum, Mission: Impossible & Sherlock Holmes etc. Therefore the action scenes looks appealing and Not out of the world. The chase scene has been shot really well and you will find audience applauding during it. However for single screen audience who were waiting for a complete action movie, it could be a set back, because the director wanted to show the different side of a spy apart from his duty.
On a final note, it is a good script, commendable performance and Good direction that Makes Ek tha Tiger a movie worth watching. And yes the YRF guys have released it in a festive atmosphere, so take out time and go watch the movie. Thumbs up from me.
