Another blockbuster from Salman Khan for a 300 Crore Club race. This time Director Kabir Khan nailed it from Salman Khan making him doing some serious intense acting rather than the casual way of his performance which he usually does. I have always been thinking about Salman that he work generally with rookie directors and comedy oriented movie makers.
When he is clubbed up with talented director the kind of output we received is Kuch Kuch Hota Hai, Tere Naam, Wanted, Kyunki and Bajrangi Types of movies. This may be the best film of his career, I wish it should not as we are expecting more such kind of movies from him. India already became the fan of the cute little girl Harshali Malhotra the “Munni” of Bajrangi.
As I saw somewhere in facebook a line that without speaking a single word she conquered the hearts of audience with her expressions and looks.
Movie is all about a kind hearted and simple country guy from India on a race to Pakistan illegally to return a mute girl back to her home. Initial phase of movie is with full of beautiful landscapes of Kashmir and eventually travelling to the thick and crowdy Old Delhi showing the beautiful country side of our Old delhi population and culture along with a very beautiful projection of Hazrat Nizamuddin Dargah. May be some people can feel like the first part of the movie is little slow and lagging due to the way of flash back scenes they narrate but it all covered by the cuteness of Salman, Munni and Kareena.
Salman appears with an awesome energetic track “Selfi le le re” which brought the theater atmosphere to the heights. Following Bajrangi’s cute and kiddish activities leading an awesome track from Atif Aslam “Tu Chahiye”. Second Half starts with the rock solid performance of Nawazuddin Siddiqui as a reporter from Pakistan inspired from a real life character Chand Nawab, who became viral on youtube for his funny kind of reporting for a news coverage. There is an awesome track by Adnan Sami “Bharde Jholi Meri” which really mesmerize your soul with the pureness of Islamic Culture.
This is a film which really depicts the actual humanity laid in the people of Pakistan and Hindustan irrespective of the anti-national elements aiming to break this love and relationship. Bajrangi was a person who have only faith in his own religion and feels uncomfortable to being in a Mosque or being with a Muslim person and eventually he realized his shortcomings and enlightens himself with knowledge about what actually a religion is? And how pure Islam is? It is not about the religions… there is only one race and that is Humanity.
It is a must watch for every Indian & Pakistani to realize what we actually are… And for others please watch it for an excellent story and performance…
