Here's our review of the movie... He is worshiped by zillions of his fans across the globe who are certainly ignorant towards criticism. Puri was one of the very finest actors our country ever produced, and Kabir Khan's Tubelight marks his last filmed performance. This isn't the first time that Kabir Khan has cast Salman in a role where he plays too innocent for his personality.
Yes, "Bhai-log", your Salman will make you weep in this film. Shah Rukh's cameo is one of the most exciting parts of the film, as he enthralls the audience with few but choice messages - which prove the point yet again that the audiences can not be lectured about love and faith and goodness by the truckload.
Koimoi- Salman Gives A Good Performance But Not His Best!
While the promos of TUBELIGHT simply "lightened" up everyone's excitement about the film, the film fails to live upto its title and eventually falls flat completely. The Dabangg star plays a child-man who doesn't take off his shirt or flex his biceps.
But going by the character's demand in the film, both Salman and Sohail seem overweight and are over-aged for their respective roles. Based in Kumaon, the film is an official adaptation of Little Boy, but it is nowhere close to the original one. He did it in Bajrangi Bhaijaan and people loved it.
Salman's career graph is the kind of stuff you would normally associate with fairy-tales success. It will bring tears to your eyes. His breakdown moment on realising his brother's fate or even the epic cameo scene with Shah Rukh show how far he's come and evolved as an actor.
"I didn't have to make him dance much in the "Radio" song as his character was such". Camera work is superb and extra efforts have been taken to make sure the period looks believable. But it seems that it failed to create an impact on the boxoffice.
Over expectation is a buzz kill and that's what Tubelight teaches you.
Positive Points: Salman Khan's endearing performance is the highlight of the film. "With Sohail opposite to me, there was no acting involved, it was just heartfelt", he added. Stay tuned to our page for more updates on "Tubelight".
About the feedback about his film, Salman said: "As per reports people are saying they cannot see "Bhai" (Salman) crying". But at 150 minutes, the film overstretches its run-time by more than half an hour.
The bottom line of the movie is faith.
Kabir has once again touched upon his favourite topic of cross-border relationship after "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" by setting "Tubelight" against the backdrop of India-China War of 1962. "RADIO" is the only chartbuster song in the film. Absolutely loved the time, innocence and world of Tubelight.
