Ek Tha Tiger Movie Review

Site: Glamsham     Review By- Martin D Souza

What works for the film big time apart from Salman Khan is the action. It`s slick and woven well into the script. It pushes the story forward unlike the song which jerks it backwards (by many miles). Also, the fact that Salman is gung-ho about the action and romance in this film is a huge plus. Clearly, he is having the time of his life, doing what he loves to do best and in return getting appreciation from his fans. Source : Visit site for more

But overall, the film does disappoint you for it fails to deliver what it promised. If you are a Salman Khan fan, you would love it for sure and the movie might rake-in the moolah because of the superstar! It will certainly entertain you if you leave your brains outside the theatre!

What’s Good: The cinematography; some twists in the film; the music.What’s Bad: The plot seems stretched; unexplained loops.Loo Break: Not really.Watch or Not: Watch it for Salman Khan at the top of his game and some exciting action scenes.Aditya Chopra’s story smartly mixes a spy thriller with a love story which is sort of exciting. Kabir Khan and Neelesh Misra’s script has its share of flaws. The story of the scientist in the first half shows Tiger quite inept as a spy and isn’t even given a proper conclusion. Also, why RAW decides to help their rogue agent Tiger towards the end is up to the viewers to decide. The movie also seems a bit long with the duo on the run most of the time. Dialogues are good and keep a good dose of humourSalman fans won’t be disappointed by Ek Tha Tiger. For others, it’s a fun watch even though it’s a bit long. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Dainik Bhaskar     Review By- Mayank Shekar

Reviewing a Salman Khan film is like ironing a pair of jeans: really, what’s the point. People will watch it anyway. The sensible, sorted director’s ensured the film has a script. Though only Aditya Chopra the credited story writer, could be behind a deeply romantic idea of two secret service agents of rival countries falling desperately in love.Neither of the lead characters plays traitor to their government. They’re merely in love. You know love will eventually win. And of course you knew Salman Khan will win. At the time of writing this review, it’s hard to estimate the film’s box-office receipts. Yet, never in my recent memory have I stood in a long line, all the way outside a mall, trying to get into a packed multiplex, with a ticket bought in advance, for a 9 am show!

Site: Indian Express     Review By- Shubhra Gupta

There are two conflicting factors in Ek Tha Tiger: Salman Khan’s overriding principle of silliness and Kabir Khan’s intrinstic liking for seriousness. But so overwhelming is Bhai’s past aura that serious keeps threatening to slide into silly, and the moment you give in to that in-between space, the film becomes something you can enjoy. Most of the time.Salman is much more in packaged-by-Yashraj-Bond mode, bashing ‘em up, and lovin’ her for ever: essentially Bhai doing his stuff, restricted, sure, tamped down, sure, but still Bhai doing his stuff.I had fun while it lasted.

Site: Yahoo     Review By- Kunal Guha

One of the most annoying dilemmas that the lead cast is constantly pondering over through the film is whether to follow the dil or the dimaag. Let`s just say, if you`ve donated the first to Salman Khan, leave the second at home at head to the nearest multiplex. Else, stay put at home and suffers Independence Day specials on the telly.

Site: DNA     Review By- Aniruddha Guha

Ek Tha Tiger is similar in some ways — it`s a film that presents Salman as a larger-than-life, superhero-esque secret agent. There`s action, music and a plot that is tailored to satiate Khan fans looking to get off on his antics.But, surprise surprise. Director Kabir Khan doesn`t leave things to the Salman factor alone. He banks on it, no doubt, with his film exploiting the actor`s persona to the hilt, but makes sure he makes it a spectacle of it. "I`ll show you how to do it" - his film arrogantly seems to be telling filmmakers chasing multiple crore figures and box office records. There`s style, there`s slickness, and there`s an ingredient almost entirely missing from most other Salman films - wit. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Times Of India     Review By- Meena Lyer

Ek Tha Tiger is no Dabangg, Ready or Bodyguard. It`s more evolved, less chalu( read entertaining.) Salman`isms` are rationed. And the hero does so many unbelievable stunts, it makes you ponder on whether- Bollywood`s answer to Spider Man, Superman and Batman; is apna Salman. Source : Visit site for more

Site: Hindustan Times     Review By- Anupama Chopra

Ek Tha Tiger is Salman Khan’s best film since Dabangg. But because his last two films were Ready and Bodyguard, the bar is not exactly high. Director and co-writer Kabir Khan takes the larger-than-life Salman Khan persona and wraps it in an engaging story that services it. Of course it’s played out like a comic book but if you’re willing to suspend disbelief there’s fun to be had.In places, Ek Tha Tiger becomes downright silly. So the modus operandi might be to think of it as a fairy tale with spies and guns. And enjoy the ride. Source : Visit site for more
