Well, the much-awaited Salman Khan’s Kick has eventually landed. The man with superstardom is now again ready to entice and allure all of his fans spread all over India and abroad. Salman’s movies are always hits and even blockbusters and now the question is – whether Kick too would be a blockbuster? The answer is very straight – ‘Yes’.
Salman’s top agenda is always the same – delivering ‘Entertainment’ and that’s what he does and his focus is all the time. With Kick too, entertainment quotient is on top high.
Salman’s blockbusters are often the remakes of south movies and Kick is no exception as well. It is a remake of colossally successful Telugu movie ‘Kick’ (2009) starring Ravi Teja and Ileana D’ Cruz. The Hindi version of Sajid Nadiadwala’s produced and directed venture carries its own values and taste to suit the flavor of Hindi audiences. Salman’s Kick is more stylish, polished and has international feel with stunts, which make you focus your eyes on screen.
On a train in Warsaw, the gorgeous Shaina (Jacqueline Fernandez), a psychiatrist bumps into Himanshu (Randeep Hooda), a police officer. Both share their past stories with each other. Shaina tells about her ex-flame Devi Lal Singh (Salman Khan). She tells about his craziness and their romance. She goes on telling about their break up. Himanshu tells about his past. Both now have one thing in common – Devil Lal, who has now landed up in their lives with a new guise and mission.
Sajid Nadiadwala’s story is simply awesome. Sajid and his team of writers have done brilliance in generating a luminous catchy screenplay. Chetan Bhagat and Rajat Aroraa share their minds with Sajid Nadiadwala on generating a brilliant script that aptly suits the taste of Hindi viewers. There are few holes in the script, but they are ignorable like Salman Khan and Mithun Chakaraborty’s sequence in the bar.
Sajid impress with his execution of the story on screen – he doesn’t leave any moment to take the eyes off the screen. Rajat Aroraa’s dialogues are catchy. As every movie of Salman carries a dialogue which turns out to be mass-centric, Kick too carries the one ‘Mere Bare Mein Itna Mat Sochna, Dil Mein Aata Hoon, Samajh Mein Nahi’. Now get ready to hear this dialogue from the mouth of every Salman’s fan from today onwards.
DoP by Ayananka Bose is eye-candy – the locales of Warsaw and India are heart-hitting. Camera work is splendid. Music is ear-pleasing – Jumme Ki Raat is the pick of the lot.
Salman Khan is a big entertainer and his superstardom is enough to make his movies hit or blockbuster. He is now going to allure his fan following with his utter entertainment package in Kick. He carries the whole movie on his broad shoulders with utter ease. Salman is a big star and he always proves the same with each of his film. He is going to rock at the box office once again. Jacqueline Fernandez is supremely gorgeous and glamorous in the movie. All she has to do is work on her Hindi accent. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is fabulous. Randeep Hooda is marvelous. Mithun Chakarborty is excellent. Supporting cast is brilliant as well.
On the whole, Kick is going to be a sure shot BLOCKBUSTER. Let’s wait to see the box office results oozing out with giant business from today onwards. It’s a big mass entertainer. MUST-WATCH!
