A failure at most things his father shunts him off to Delhi to make something of his life.
This film is a must watch for lovers of pure Hindi commercial cinema; it’s also decent entertainment & a good one to catch with the family!
Unlike the superstar’s previous avatars, this hero has a coherent story and a sketched out part, making “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” a huge improvement over Khan’s recent films. That explains why you don’t see Salman in the first 12 minutes of the film and hidden in a burqa, quiet for nearly 10 minutes so that a supporting character can take over the show.
Even a Kareena Kapoor Khan (credited with her husband’s last name in this film) dutifully performs the minuscule role handed out to her with aplomb. Kabir Khan adds magic to Salman Khan’s stardom with this film.
Salman Khan’s tweet came in a sort of response two days after Fakhr-r-Alam, the chairman of sensor board, tweeted about Bajrangi Bhaijaan. “No matter how much you shoot in Kashmir, it’s going to look fresh and attractive”, he said. Kareena Kapoor (Rasika ) was rolled into the film for a few songs only or preaching Pawan that one should not judge somebody by his or her faith. “She’s done superbly well and is very professional and focussed”, said Khan. With Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Harshaali Malhotra has definitely set the bar high for child actors.
Despite good performances all around, it is Malhotra who plays Shahida alias Munni who steals the show. That’s proof of his talent and growing popularity that audiences are elated to see his desperate Pakistani stringer, who enters the second half to help Pawan aka Bajrangi in his noble, selfless mission. And Nawazuddin Siddiqui takes this movie to another level with his effective acting skills. Their other film “Bodyguard” was a block buster and they shared great chemistry. Although fans of Salman Khan would be missing his trademark pelvic moves as in this movie due to character restriction boundaries, Bollywood’s muscle man simply slaps his thigh and kicks up some Gullah in a mesmerizing photographic moments.
Much is at stake for Salman Khan as he is also the producer of Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The upbeat track “Selfie Le Le Re” is already smashing the music charts. The other tracks like “Tu Jo Mila” and Adnan Sami’s devotional track “Bhar Do Jholi” does leave a lasting effect on listeners. The film touches several social issues, from religious barriers and patriotism (on both sides of the border) to human trafficking and corruption, but without being too preachy. The editing could have been sharper and the movie, shorter.
Eid and Salman is a lethal combination and a sure shot of success.
