Total: ₹ 95.50 cr. India biz.”
Now all these are just figures and these figures say it all. It is a family entertainer, yet another Salman Khan movie which has grabbed all the attention for all the reasons. This Ali Abbas Zafar directorial is well written and has a stronghold on the story. Well initiated story but missed on many sections to hold attention but doesn’t capitulate to the trappings of commercial potboilers. Basically, the issue with the screenplay and direction was the story’s strong connection with Bharat’s dream and his India’s affection.
Story: Now when you have too many aspects to show there is always a miss. The fact is that it reis too hard to grab the audience’s attention but didn’t proved to be a massive hit. It was overall an entertaining movie for the family to watch – a typical Salman Khan movie but has a draining odyssey. The movie was though being an adaptation of South Korean drama Ode to my Father (2014). It emphases on the personal and professional choices of its virtuous hero, and in Bollywood, it was set against the social backdrop of its time and the times which India as a country has seen since independence.
There were too many things happening at one time which made it across a loop of characters and scenes. While he accomplishes to keep you hooked notwithstanding his complex source material and misplaced songs makes it a complex movie. Eventually, this makes the movie an arduous, dispersed watch it despite the entertainment, humour and nobility it proliferates.
The cast: Salman Khan the hero itself has a mark for his audience as always. We all know that even if the movie does did not have much of the smash hit content – it gives a box office hit because of the stardom and love Salman Khan gets. And there is nothing wrong in it as he is fantabulous. Interestingly Salman’s love for his family and the sober family person in real life is somehow being always showcased at the epitome in his lives. Which in this movie too has come out interestingly well?
Katrina Kaif: she is stunning and gorgeous. And the character of feisty kumud who is valiant and authentic enough to make the first move on him. “I love you. Shaadi ki umra ho gayi hai meri. Tumse shaadi karna chahti hoon,” she says without winking an eye. She proposes marriage without fearing rejection. “I do and say what I think is right,” she adds and doesn’t mind teasing Salman, “Tum thodey self-obsessed Nahi ho?” Bharat is Katrina’s best-acting part to date. Her harmony with Salman feels accepted and she does a good job at depicting a woman who is self-assured without being swaggering. Her hair is a different story though with the grey streaks are erratic as her character ages and the boisterous curls feel pointless.
Sunil Grover: He actually is the best fit in Ali’s writing is how he places Sunil Grover’s character as Vilayati is commendable and a sigh to see him performing as Bharat’s best friend and amigo. The best friends are the soulmates connections is quite evident in the movie and reflects beautifully. Grover does contend justice to his well-written role and justifies more such noteworthy parts. Sonali Kulkarni and Jackie Shroff are terrific as always, including the other cast – Tabu and the kids of course.
