Tiger Zinda Hai Quick Review: Salman Khan - Katrina Kaif's Film Is A Gritty, Riveting Entertainer

12/22/2017

MUMBAI, Dec.22: Five years after Ek Tha Tiger (2012), Tiger Salman Khan and Zoya Katrina Kaif are back playing spies in Tiger Zinda Hai. The story, setting and even the director are different this time. Helmed by Ali Abbas Zafar (Sultan fame) as opposed to Kabir Khan (ETT), the film boasts of presenting a fictional account of a real-life incident where Indian nurses were abducted by the ISIS and taken hostage in Iraq in 2014. After the disappointing experience that Tubelight was, does Tiger Zinda Hai bring Salman Khan back in the form he is most loved in. Does the film has all that it takes to end the year in Bollywood with a bang? 

India.com film critic Smrity Sharma is watching Tiger Zinda Hai right now and here’s her review of the first half of the film. Smrity says, “Sans any drama, the film directly cuts to the chase as soon as it begins, taking us right into the middle of the crisis in Ikrit, Iraq where terror organisation IS has held hostage Indian and Pakistani nurses. RAW has only seven days to bring the women safely out if the death hole. However, the mission is dangerous, the enemy is mightier than ever and the only one who can accomplish this mission is Tiger (Salman Khan). The mission will only begin once RAW is able to find where Tiger has been hiding the past eight years. From a gripping sequence in Iraq, the narrative then moves to Tyrol, Austria, where Tiger, Zoya and their little one, Junior have been living a reclusive life. But when duty comes calling and the country’s prestige is at stake, the two spies don’t spare a second thought at pulling up their socks, activating their hunting skills, donning their spy avatars, loading their guns to get the work done. As we reach the interval, we meet the A-team that is not ready and waiting to take on Abu Usman, the IS chief, who is at the hospital where the nurses are kept hostage. Will Tiger and Zoya succeed in their mission and come out unscathed? That’s what awiats us in the second half.

“Salman Khan is back and how. He is in top form and complemented with a plain Jane Katrina Kaif by his side. The two look perfect together – be it their romantic chemistry or their partnership in action scenes. They are supported by an able cast of Paresh Rawal, Angad Bedi, Kumud Mishra amongst others. Be it the scenic locales of Tyrol or the war torn zones of Iraq, director Ali Abbas Zafar does a fab job in capturing every little essence to make the scenes more believable, pulling us right into the narrative, establishing a strong hold over our interest. Tiger Zinda Hai and you should not make the mistake to ignore his roar!” Keep watching this space as we shall bring the full review of Tiger Zinda Hai real soon! INDIA.COM
