Om Puri's look in the film was inspired by Colonel Sanders, owner of the American fast food franchise Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC). See more »
The movie is set in the 1960s but throughout the movie, India Post boards and post boxes bear logo which was designed in the year 1995. As a matter of fact, India Post didn't have any brand-identity before late 1993 either. See more »
It takes nerve of steel to watch Tubelight which is fused from the very beginning
What do you in life when you are bullied, laughed and doubted - you believe in yourself. If you believe in yourself and the keep the hope alive, nothing can beat you. Tubelight, remake of critically acclaimed "A Little Boy", does sends out the message but is far from being properly executed ..
Tubelight tells the story of a special man (Salman Khan) whose IQ is well-below his age but is a gem-of-a-person. Praying for his brother's (Sohail Khan) return from Indo-China War, he starts fulfilling a wish list.
Kabir Khan, who gave us some memorable films like "Kabul Express", "New York" and "Bajrangi Bhaijaan", Tubelight will come as shock for his followers and especially for Salman Khan's fans. The well intentioned film sits on a wafer-thin plot and the screenplay is weaker than a woman's tear. Of course, there are few moments which is enthralling. For instance, Salman Khan taking courage to slap his naysayer who he hurts the Chinese family. The scene where Salman Khan thoughts that his brother is dead at the Army camp and closes his ears pretending not to hear the sad news is one of the finest moments from the film. Unfortunately, the scenes are less to keep up the momentum of the film which falls flat on the face and tumbles down into a rabbit hole.
Cinematography is superb capturing the beautiful locals of Manali, Kashmir and Ladakh. Art direction is pretty impressive. Background score is just about okay while the music piece by Pritam is decent with "Radio" song being best of the lot and well-choreographed. Coming to the performance, Salman Khan tried something different with his honest performance. However, few scenes I felt he was overboard and could have worked on his expression. Zhu Zhu was good in her part. The young chap playing "Guo" was amazing. Sohail Khan was just about okay while Om Puri and Mohmammed Zeeshan Ayub were excellent.
Overall, Tubelight has been a big disappoint. Watch it only if you have not seen "A Little Boy". Below average 2/5
