What is it about?
Tiger Zindha Hai is the sequel to Kabir Khan’s hit movie Ek Tha Tiger (2012). Ever since TZH was announced, Salman's fans were excited about this outing and the movie also marked the reunion of Salman and Katrina after five long years. Firstly, if you are a fan of Ek Tha Tiger, then this franchise will be no surprise to you. Salman plays an Indian spy in the film and his mission to rescue Indian hostages from Syria, makes the plot of this film. Well, on the other hand, Katrina Kaif plays the Pakistani Spy, whose mission is to save Pakistani hostages from Syria.
What makes the film?
Tiger Zindha Hai is a sure-shot tailor-made film for Salman Khan. The film starts with a serious content, which talks about the US-Syria war and how Indian and Pakistani citizens are affected. Salman Khan who dons the role of a spy in the film takes up the mission of getting back Indian hostages safe and similarly, Katrina Kaif has to do the same with her Pakistani counterparts. What happens next and how they accomplish the mission together forms the rest of the storyline.
What didn't work?
TZH is an out and out Salman film and after mixed responses from Tubelight, Salman decides to deliver what he is always known for and hence by doing so, there is a margin of logic that lacks in TZH. Towards the end of the film, it looks as if the director was again setting a climax by assuring there could be a possibility for another sequel, which could have been trimmed for better engagement.
Salman Khan's charisma is undoubtedly the best factor in the film. Nextly, Salman-Katrina's chemistry on-screen will make you fall for them and watch the film all over again. The big positive of the film is the fact that there are not many commercial elements and unnecessary song placements. Director Ali Abbas has given a perfect screenplay that finishes the film as a neat package.
If you have missed Salman Khan's screen presence in Tubelight, then here is Salman back with a bang delivering what he is always known for. Tiger Zindha Hai will remain as one of Salman's best commercial films for a long time.
