"Script Zinda Nahi Hai"- but still watchable for Salman Khan and his kickass moves
22 December 2017 | by oazamSee all my reviews

Salman Khan never dissappoints at the box office. So is this a complete recipe for success?

So Tiger and Zoya has been absconded from their respective agenices. They fall in love and get married and settle in a cottage in the Austrian Alps. Unfortuantely their peaceful life goes into turmoil when they find out about 25 Indian nurses who were kidnapped by a terrorist organization in Iraq and are held hostage. How the Indian and Pakistani spy travel to Iraq and engage in the mission of rescuing the nurses is basically what this film is about.

The prequel despite its low rating, the film still became a hit minitng over 300+ crores. Honestly I did like the film for its entertaining masala flick but the sotry was something that made me cringe for some time. Quite to my surprise, this film is far better in terms of masala than Ek Tha Tiger which was the prequel.

Ali Abbas Zafar brought in Tom Struthers who used to design stunts for Nolan's films like Incpetion and Dark Knight Rises. His stunts in TZH were exactly the same and executed the way Nolan would want it to be. The editing was crisp and the looks of the Austrian Alps and Iraq made it watchable.

The writing is the weakest link in the movie and the reason behind that would be the way the trailer was released. I felt 60-70% of the film was already shown and mentioned in the trailer. The plot was too far fetched and the gripping elements were a bit too low. But the dialogues had some pizzaz and some humor was relatively funny.

As far as acting goes, Salman Khan hasn't dissappointed his fans and luckily for this film, his roar was even louder as Tiger. He was watchable thoughout the film and his charm and charisma really suited the audience. Kumud Mishra as the hacker was pretty decent. Angad Bedi plays Tiger's right hand man and seeing him in an action film really shocked me. Paresh Rawal was humorous throughout the film and he made me chuckle quite a bit in some parts. Girish Karnad as Shenoy is the usual so nothing there. Sajjad Delfarooz was outstanding as a baddie and his un-stoical mentality really adjusted the depth of the film. Katrina Kaif's acting was overacted of course. Her dialogues were too cheesy and bleak which made some scenes a snoozer. Only Struthers outdid her performance.

The music was composed by Vishal-Shekhar. The hughlight of the album has to be Dil Diyan Gallan if you're in a romantic mood. Feeling groovy, Swag se Swagat is a treat. Irshad Bhai has done a remarkable job with the lyrics and Vaibhavi's choreography is a treat.

The apcing is also a minor issue because I felt that the film finished too quicky and that is what the story did. The pace kept tripping and then after 2nd half the pace kept tripping even more hich resulted in the quick climax.

Overall, this film is decent but the writing and pacing takes it away but it is a mass masala entertainer prefect for a good weekend. Definitely a cinema watch but critics would defintiely save their money and watch the piece of the action on cable tv.

3/5- Bhai did it again!!!!
