Kabir Khan had directed the prequel and Ali Abbas Zafar had assisted him on the same, thus the trailer of Tiger Zinda Hai reflects similar elements from the first movie. The stylization and the attention to detail is impressive and grabs your attention right from the start of the trailer.
Tiger Zinda Hai is a fictionalised retelling of a real life incident. In the movie, twenty-five Indian nurses get kidnapped by a terrorist group in Iraq. How Tiger and Zoya evade the authorities and help bring back the nurses to India forms the film’s plot. The movie packs a punch with gunfights, some horse riding, mind games and a lot of hand to hand combat as well. The plot also reminds one of Akshay Kumar’s hit movie Airlift. The movie also features actors Angad Bedi, Paresh Rawal, Girish Karnad and Sajjad Delafrooz.
The story has the characters travelling to five different countries and fighting against all odds to save the nurses. Tiger Zinda Hai has been shot extensively in Morocco, Greece, Abu Dhabi and Austria. From filming in the cold in Austria to withstanding the heat in the Liwa desert in Abu Dhabi, the cast and crew of the film seems to have pushed themselves to the limit to get the desired results for the film. The movie is set to release on the 22nd of December.
