Mashallah! Just few minutes past the screening, and I can’t stop crooning this track!! And the adjective not only addresses Katrina and Salman, it also can be said true for the entire film. A complete package, a blockbuster released right on the day of Independence, Kabir Khan’s ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ is a powerful entertainer.

Revealing even a bit about the story would kill the thrill and suspense of the film and so i would just keep it to what we all know. It’s a love story of a spy, a RAW agent. What Sriram Raghavan could not do with ‘Agent Vinod’, Kabir Khan did with ‘Ek Tha Tiger’. The story is simple and hits the right nail with subtle twists and turns.

Kabir Khan, after, ‘New York’ and ‘Kabul Express’ again scores an Ace in direction. Camera angles, Salman’s entry through cigarette ashes, Russian and Greek delegates taking a nap during the UN Briefing, every minute detail has been taken care of and is inserted in the film for a reason. It makes us experience humour, emotions, thrill, romance, empathy in a little over than 2 hours.

‘Ek Tha Tiger’ is a befitting reply to all those who thought that Salman Khan can only act in a senseless no brainer. This film has sense and Salman does complete justice to it. As choreographer Vaibhavi Merchant rightly puts it, Salman just standing in front of the camera is more than a job done. His style, dialogue delivery is something else, beyond comparisons.  He was nowhere OTT like in his earlier films and pulled off a serious character really well. Yes, a few elements, of him removing his shirt and being extraordinarily powerful are added, but hey at the end of the day, it’s a Masala Hindi flick and that too has Salman Khan’s name associated with it. Kabir Khan’s sensibilities, though do cover these elements to a large extent.

Katrina Kaif fans are in for a treat as the lady is seen doing some mind boggling action stunts. She mesmerises and acts well. So we are talking about more than just good looks here. Ranvir Shorey makes an impact in his short yet powerful performance. Rest of the supporting cast does their job well.

Music of the film is not extra ordinary with only ‘Mashallah’ standing out. Cinematography is above average and the film is styled in a fancy manner. The action sequences choreographed are interesting and so are the dialogues. The pace does get a little slow prior to the intermission but the suspense takes over at just the right time.

Now, this Yash Raj and Salman Khan Amalgamation sure calls for celebration and cherry on the top will be the box office figures that are inevitable.
