Movie Review: Ek Tha Tiger

Ek Tha Tiger is a love story in the guise of an action movie. Salman Khan, a RAW agent, falls in love with Katrina Kaif on a mission in another country. Katrina Kaif (Zoya, delightful) turns out to be an ISI agent (sorry for the spoiler) and Salman Khan must kill her. Directed by Kabir Khan, Aditya Chopra’s story starts in an unexciting way, with Tiger (Salman Khan, minus his usual bullshit) in an action sequence which moves either in slow motion or too fast to enjoy.

Given the star status he enjoys, Salman Khan deserves better roles, but this is still a lot more watchable than his last four releases (Wanted, Dabangg, Ready and Bodyguard were pieces of shit), and Katrina Kaif looks gorgeous and is a treat to watch in the action scenes, even though Ek Tha Tiger, as a thriller, is underwhelming.

Every other actor in Ek Tha Tiger except Salman and Katrina is hamming, and the couple’s chemistry alone makes the film worth a watch. Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif do both comedy and drama pretty well as a team and they look great together. There are a few really good scenes: 1) Salman invites Katrina for a close-to-midnight picnic and it turns out that he wants to see a meteor shower with her, and 2) Katrina tells Salman during a serious moment that their nationality and duty will only let them shake hands at the Wagah border.

Ek Tha Tiger is devoid of the usual crassness that comes in a Salman Khan film, and Katrina Kaif is the highlight of the movie. If the other actors weren’t hamming so much, this could have been worth a second watch. Still, it’s less pretentious than that overrated second part of Gangs Of Wasseypur which only idiots loved.

    WANTED AND READY WERE KICK ASS MOVIES. DABANGG WAS SO-SO. BODYGUARD WAS SHIT. SIDDIQUIE or whoever the fuck that guy calls himself, should stop directing movies and go back to repairing cars, or selling tea or whatever the fuck he was doing before “salman bhai gave break”

      I’ve heard terrible things about Ready, and I had to watch Bodyguard on a bus back from Bangalore. Unbelievably bad! All I could think of while watching it: ‘this movie made 150 crores and has set a new box-office record.’
