Film Ratings – ⭐⭐⭐⭐tars
Directed by Maneesh Sharma & a part of the YRF spy universe, Tiger 3 is an “out and out” action film centred primarily on the protagonist, Tiger trying to save the PM of Pakistan ( Simran) who has a striking resemblance to Real life Pak politician Hina Rabbani Khar.
Don’t miss the teaser of the next YRF film starring Hrithik ( Kabir) at the end of the ” Prabhu ka Naam” song !! Some positives : Great action sequences, especially the ones performed by Katrina Kaif .
Cinematography is praiseworthy & locales are just awesome, a treat to the eye !! Most of the film is shot with a sepia filter that adds a touch of class to this action thriller!! The negatives : Action is over the top and totally unrealistic. Non innovative storyline with the Paki bashing premise is getting a tad bit boring!! Tiger and Co actually rescue the Pak PM from their army and get the Indian national anthem played on Pak independence day!! That scene is definitely a product of something that the writer smoked before he wrote it !! Being a YRF film, Tiger 3 is a decent one time watch & will definitely appeal to the masses Tiger jab Tak mara nahi ,
After the success of Pathan and Jawaan earlier this year, nothing surprises me any more. So if this movie collects 500-600 cr over the course of its box office lifecycle, I will not be astonished. It’s been a jolly ride for Salman Khan for the last 30-40 years in the industry but he does not know when and how to stop or change over to a character roles and play his age. Guess when will that happen with the Khans. The story is the same as before, first half of the illogical build up, second half of mindless and non sensical, over the top action…..India RAW agent who WFH (works from home) in Austria, calls his master’s in Delhi whenever he feels like, lives a fancy life with his wife and kid with USD per diem paid by Govt of India Locations remains the same (Austria, Turkey, Russia, London, etc)…YRF Movies seem to buy packages with the Travel and Film Promotion Departments of these 5 countries for 5-10 movies together at a discounted rate. Emraan Hashmi plays the antagonist to perfection and does not behave like a combination of Mogambo (Mr India) and Dr Dang (Karma) just because he is a Pakistani villian. Looks like there is a reservation system when it comes to who will.play Salman Khan’s boss in RAW ….it’s “reserved” for a S Indian – earlier it was Girish Karnad and now it’s Gauthami.
The two songs are passable….would not have changed anything even if they were eliminated. Only good thing is that Arijit Singh has patched up with Salman Khan in real.life after 10 years for the romantic number. So Arijit Singh will be singing Romantic numbers for going forward. Action sequences are the same….everything blowing up, Ak 47s, Howitzers, shoulder held missile launchers, car chase across St Petersburg and Turkey, and bike chases across mountains, bridges with super deep ravines blowing up and Sallu Bhai hanging by a thread, helicopter jump sequence and Sallu Bhai catching edge of Helicopter with one hand and flying away safe, hanging from ropes and shooting, gymnastic and aerial yoga shooting, pilates shooting, etc etc etc. You name it and it’s there. SRK sequence is for 5 mins with gravity and logic defying stunts (like the above) with the customary SRK humour. Pls wait for end credits for a special sequence.
