Okay, let's get one thing straight: Salman Khan's movies are critic-proof. The naysayers or those baying for his blood may frown on the slipups and blemishes in his movies, point out gaping plot holes, accuse him of opting for remakes rather than original concepts, slam him for using
It was bound to happen.At some point, a canny producer was sure to realise that all that matters in the kind of movies Salman Khan does nowadays is Salman Khan. After looking at, for example, Bodyguard or Ready -- hideous, tacky eyesores that nonetheless rule the charts
You don’t have to be a scriptwriter to know what happens next. You just need to leave your brains home and enjoy the story, if it can be called that. As the film ends with Singh saying, “don’t try understanding me, just love me”, please don’t try to understand a Salman Khan film. Simply, love it.
I admit I am ugly, useless loser and most importantly, I should die because Salman’s already multi-crore spinner didn’t give me any kick, pun hell intended!But please understand that this is nothing personal about Salman khan. It's not even about good or bad films as it's all very subjective.
‘Kick’ is a vintage Salman-Khan movie, one that unapologetically glorifies his every move, muscle and mannerism. As the curtains roll down, we can’t help but notice how it requires a skillset of a different kind to watch Salman’s movies. If you don’t have it in you, please don’t venture out!
It isn’t a surprise but the film has no story. If you are expecting intellect, I will doubt yours. Devil Lal Singh is a superhero. To make it more believable, the makers even gave a Krrish mask to the man, who has topped every exam he has appeared in and broken every bone that has come his way.
There are certain ground rules for a Salman Khan film. While most heroes work their way towards earning the title in their respective films, Salman Khan, from the very first frame establishes who the boss is. What follows is a constant reminder, approved by a cheering audience.
Salman Khan plays the role of the fun-loving Devilal whose only aim in life is to get a 'kick' in whatever he does. A chance encounter with the Poland-based Shaina (Jacqueline) leaves him besotted. But the love story is short-lived because she cannot handle Devi's lack of commitment.
Debutant director Sajid Nadiadwala, a veteran producer with a fairly successful track record, brings together ingredients audiences should ideally demand from every Bollywood blockbuster in Kick. The film’s mounted on a lavish scale, the cinematography (Ayananka Bose) is top-notch,
Welcome to bizarreland. This is where people do what they want and the audience is expected to digest it with open mouthed admiration. This is the kind of ‘masterpiece’ that would put Robinhood to reconsider his charitable intentions. Because as you know, Bhai rocks.
There are two devils in Kick. Both have sinister smiles. One of them, as the trailer tells us, is a thief named Devil (Salman Khan). The other one is in disguise. His name is Shiv (Nawazuddin Sidddiqui), a loony, over-the-top villain whose presence adds a much-needed kick to the
What this lovely word means is ‘unbearable’, though it can’t come remotely close to the tedium that the original describes. Salman’s leading lady says it to him. About him. Yes, gasp, addressing the one and the only Sallu Bhai, who appears in his latest In and As avatar in ‘Kick’.
The movie is directed by Salman's good friend Sajid Nadiadwala and their comfort level shows on screen. As a director/friend, Nadiadwala has done everything for the superstar, from a filmi entry to his famous walk which his fans love and his character in the film helps the needy,Kick has it all!
The movie actually begins when Devi Lal Singh and Devil, both slice through Dr Shaina and Himanshu on a Poland street asking for directions to a doctor's clinic. Yes, Sajid Nadiadwala takes this much time to get the action rolling in KICK. Immediately after this scene, the words I N T E R V A L
There is lots of dum for all those seeking a masala entertaining film with good music, fast pace actions and star power attached to it. The logic hunters in such type of films might end up getting disappointed as usual. The movie might not be on the lines of Salman Khan's super entertaining
Straight on, Kick is Bollywood biryani, a masala movie spiced with the superstardom of Salman Khan, garnished by charming Jacqueline, smouldered over the wry talent of Randeep Hooda. Kick is not for lovers of fine filmi foie gras, but for those who want a hearty Eid banquet to enjoy.
To give the Devil his due, Kick isn’t half as bad as some of the Bollywood flicks that moviegoers have been subjected to in recent months. Kick is the Sajid Nadiadwala's debut as a director. Sajid is a seasoned producer of money-spinning potboilers. It is no different from the films
Never heard a filmmaker say 'Anyone can direct' in the vein of Chef Gusteau's 'Anyone can cook' belief. There's a reason why. Watching Kick, which marks producer Sajid Nadiadwala's debut as director, explains it with brutal honesty.Its star, soul and the reason why anyone should care at all
The film is built around an interesting concept, sadly marred by a worn-out story. The idea of a central character, a genius of sorts, always looking for a “kick” is immediately arresting. For that kick, Devil Lal Singh (Salman) doesn’t mind being chased around by sword-wielding ruffians,
No, Kick is not the worst film of all times. But it is easily Salman's weakest film in quite some time. By that I do mean Jai Ho is many notches higher. So is Bodyguard. The problem of Kick is it's screenplay. Rajat Arora is a phenomenal dialogue writer. We have seen his work in films
There are three things one mustn’t underestimate in life, and they are Salman Khan, Salman Khan and Salman Khan. Primarily because the aura that the actor carries with him is more majestic than the person. When you watch a film that stars Salman Khan, you watch it for him,
Made in a typical south Indian masala style, the entire movie can be summed up in its own dialogue "Main dil mein aata hoon, samajh mein nahin" (I enter hearts, but can`t be understood). It is all about Salman`s aura. Sajid has fit him into as many frames as possible, and he looks terrific.
I watched this movie with Bhai’s bhakts (or Bhai-tards as they are popularly called on Twitter). They seemed to be lapping up this Dhoom 4, where Bhai, like Aamir’s clown, plays the Devil with a mask, going about looting various treasure troves with a cop (Randeep Hooda, in place of
Salman Khan loyalists won't be too happy; Kick utilizes the services of actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Saurabh Shukla and Sanjay Mishra. Often, they are in the same frame as Khan, blowing to bits the myth that Khan needs to just show up to engage his viewers.
One word – Salman! This guy has never looked so good in any of his films, Kick isn’t just reinventing Salman’s work portfolio, but it is also going to rewrite box-office figures and previous records set by the actor. Kick is a full on entertainer that will give you the much needed ‘kick’
The dialogue writer of this film seem to have started with a blank page and liberally splattered the word ‘kick’ all over it. Then they wove these words together with other words. Never mind that when strung together they made no sense. As long as the audience was told 300 times
This two hours twenty six minutes delirious mix of B-town escapisms and buffoonery romanticism is insistently entertaining for Salman Khan fans and entertainment hungry souls in general underlining the debut of Sajid Nadiadwala as a director of ‘mass’ entertainer while
‘Kick’ is the kind of film where I allow my better judgment to be blurred and just soak in this spicy potpourri. This delicious Bollywood masala fare is served with a dash of romance, a generous dose of action, dollops of melodrama and some pontification.
Kick is a typical Salman Khan film where one witnesses a blast of charisma exuding from the screen that reaches the audience faster than any acting done by the star. Like all his films, this one too promises an onslaught of entertainment where one enters the hall thinking of Salman’s
If you look really closely, you'll notice that the new Salman Khan starrer Kick is fashioned as a mirror to his own life. Directed by Sajid Nadiadwala, this is a movie on a mission. A mission to whitewash the actor's controversial personal image, and to reinforce the notion that he may be a bad boy,
Salman Khan runs around the globe to find that elusive kick in life. Five songs, one Eid, one Children’s Day and some retrograde amnesia later, he finds it.Phew! And we are already at the fag end of the second half of the film.Nobody expects a Higgs boson-type discovery
The story line is quite versatile. The story is of three character and their incomplete journey in life played at different intervals by Srinagar Kitty himself. The first one is Manas, a character which is in love with a girl. The second, Mani is a ruthless gangster.
What does a man take with him on his final journey? Skills, strength, skin, flesh or bones? Only his good and bad deeds accompany him while the rest fall away.After the highly verbose Simplaag Ond Love Story, Suni tries to bring this universal truth, so often used and just as conveniently
Well, it's all about what it could have been. The film has unique elements that form a novel approach at narration, but at the same time leaves one exhausted as the pace and unfolding of director Sunil Kumar's ideas are not clear enough. If entertainment is your only concern,
Bahuparak is not your run-of-the-mill film when it comes to narration. It's something Sandalwood has rarely seen before. Though the narration appears to be confusing initially, as the story opens up, things fall into place. Most of the sequences are close to heart, reflecting what we see

Wes Anderson is Hollywood's Lewis Carroll - and The Grand Budapest Hotel is his Wonderland. Set in the imaginary Eastern European republic of Zubrowska, in the delicately hysterical years between two World Wars, the Grand Budapest Hotel is a lacy handkerchief of nostalgia,
Wes Anderson must have had an amazingly colourful childhood surrounded with all kinds of characters, including eccentric uncles and aunts, and his parents must have read him many picture books.This gentle director keeps reinventing imaginary worlds with a wonderfully wide-eyed
From Hollywood comes another instant classic. The Grand Budapest Hotel is an epic ride of fantasy, comedy, satire and beauty. Wes Anderson, of The Royal Tennebaums and The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou, has delivered a movie which can be enjoyed by each and everyone.
Wes Anderson keeps up with his reputation of putting quaint characters with bizarre quirks in a setting both grand and archaic to carry forward a story that is in equal parts strange and charming. That has always been his style of narrative and on most occasions he's been spot-on in
The Grand Budapest Hotel is just like the macaroon it so often features – a delightful little pastry that looks deceptively simple but which can be perfectly made only by a true artist.The artist responsible for this film is Wes Anderson, the director who has been reviled and valued in equal measures
Few modern filmmakers can claim to leave as distinct a stamp on their work as Wes Anderson. His cinematic style and visual language is so unique, you recognize it just moments into a film: the brightly colored dollhouse aesthetic of his sets, his customary quirky characters,
Layers of differing consistency, perfectly harnessed flavours inventively brought together to complement each other as well as to throw up the odd surprise, covered with icing and embellishment to make for a seductively attractive treat, one that beckons those within range
It’s just like Wes Anderson to set his story in a fictitious East European, Alpine country, and then plot it around the ‘Grand Budapest’ hotel. Hungary may have nothing to do with Anderson’s Zubrowka. But Hungary, with its beautiful capital Budapest, is nothing if not a country often
Wes Anderson doesn't stray from his signature style. It is something of a gift that Wes is able to repeat actors (practically half the cast and special appearances) and yet extract singularly superlative performances from them in the brief time that they inhabit the screen.
