Tubelight movie review: Kabir Khan's weakest film by far

Kareena Kapoor Karisma Kapoor and Salman Khan

This is Salman's Eid release this year.

Salman Khan aka Lakshman Singh Bisht appears a good natured and a gullible man.

As Lakshman aka Salman Khan was a gullible guy captain rejects him and selects Bharat for Indian Army. The film is ready to enter in 300 crore club. He can not move mountains with his performance but he manages to keep the faith alive. The second half especially has so many random songs that pop out of nowhere that you keep checking your watch. He did friendship with a lady and a little kid who moved India from China. So I asked, are they (audience) laughing and the answer was "no, they are crying".

Be it Shah Rukh Khan's cameo as Goga Pasha magician or Salman Khan's overt faith of getting his brother back safely, nothing seems relevant to the plot.

"For audiences, Salman Khan is synonymous with Eid and for distributors Eid is synonymous with Salman Khan", trade analyst Akshaye Rathi told AFP. And left his breath in a war against China.

Add these two highly combustible and profitable properties into one and you have the potential for the biggest fight in history. Roddy announced who will be cornering McGregor for the massive money fight, and it could be a bit of a surprise to some.

Set in the 1962 Sino-Indian war and an adaptation of the American film Little Boy, Tubelight is unlike the typical action or masala movie Khan has come to be known for. Some say Tubelight's weekend business will be at least Rs 100 crore. When it comes to performances-Salman laughs and cries unselfconsciously, unraveling the lesser-seen side of his macho image. Later, the director focuses mainly on the rapport between Bharat and Laxman, and at this moment, the viewers will get to know that both of them will be separated soon. The film remained unsuccessful in creating a hat-trick with superstar Salman Khan.

Maniesh Paul: Timing between Salman Khan and Sohail Khan is so good. His innocence will make the audience cry. Zhu Zhu, as his mother, makes the most of the limited opportunities the screenplay gives her. According to a report in Bollywood Hungama, it may collect Rs 25-30 crore at box office on Day 1 of release - that is unlikely to transpire now barring a miracle.

After the huge success of Baahubali: The Conclusion and Dangal at the box office, the bar has been set higher for new releases.

Apart from the weekend, Tubelight has the Eid holiday (Monday) too to add more numbers to its kitty. The hype on the latest film also increased day by day before the release, and it is due to the music, teasers which were released a few days back.

While we were expecting the movie to earn around 27 crores on the first day, it looks a daunting task now with the kind of opening it has got in the morning shows.
