Kick: Film Review – Salman Khan rules, yet again. Go get your Kick!

There are three things one mustn’t underestimate in life, and they are Salman Khan, Salman Khan and Salman Khan. Primarily because the aura that the actor carries with him is more majestic than the person. When you watch a film that stars Salman Khan, you watch it for him, not for the paraphernalia, read: other actors, actresses, props, story. It feels terribly wrong to criticise this genre of films, which I would duly like to name as Salman-ism, because the films are a hit long before they hit the screens. Having said that, Sajid Nadiadwala’s directorial debut, Kick, dares to be different in many ways. The lead actor, fondly known as Sallu Bhai, is not the angel any longer, for he is one who dons a mask and calls himself Devil, who is nothing short of a superhero. This seriously gives competition to India’s first superhero, and other actors who were different, were partially successfull, but never really hit the bull’s eye.

Kick, is a remake of the 2009 Telugu film by the same name. It’s pretty much a frame-by-frame copy of its Telugu predecessor, but you know the drill, it’s Salman Khan, and there’s no refuting that. While Jacqueline Fernandez looks ethereally beautiful, she doesn’t have very much to do in the film, except well, look great. Unfortunately, no sparks flew upon seeing the onscreen couple together, regardless of the romantic numbers and their overall screen presence. On the other hand, it was Nargis Fakhri in the item number who actually sets the screen on fire with her moves and her looks. One can easily term her as The Femme Fatale in Bollywood post this item song. One’s got to mention how fabulous both Salman Khan and Nargis Fakhri looked together in the ‘Yaar Naa Miley‘ song.

The film comprises everything from drama, to action, to stunts (forgive the discrepancy if you do notice one), to romance. As per the trend, there’s a film every Friday to celebrate the Eid weekend. Save for Abhinav Kashyap’s Dabanng, all others seemed too mindless to even remember once you left the theatre, but Kick is different. It gives solid competition to Dabanng and probably wins in a few departments too. Infact, the film also celebrates Dabanng in a rather cute way. Watch the film to know more.

Coming to the most-important aspect of the film, the good cop and the bad minister, played by Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, respectively. Randeep plays a tough cop who also doubles as Jacqueline’s second fiddle, but his main aim is to nab a clever criminal, and he has taken an oath to only tie the knot once he is successful. An oath as strong as Draupadi’s, if you know what I mean. Whether he wins or loses is what you should watch the film for. Continuing the thought, there is very little that you can say about Nawazuddin Siddiqui. The great actor that he is, a short screen-time also has him stand at par with The Salman Khan in the film. He makes no bones about being good at being bad. And it’s just amazing to watch simply because you will want to love the loathsome character that Siddiqui plays with panache. In shorter roles you have theatre actor Rajit Kapur, Mithun Chakraborty and Archana Puran Singh, but it is a Salman Khan film anyway, all the way.

Why should you watch this film?

A true blue Salman Khan fan doesn’t need a specific reason to watch his film. For everyone else, this isn’t a mindless film, so breathe a sigh of relief. Yes, it has its flaws, but it’s entertaining in a certain measure. If Bollywood films are your staple diet every week, then you know what to do.

    Why should I NOT watch this movie?
    Because every single pathetic new or old movie these guys (namely: saluu, ajay devgan, rohit shetty) make, are lame copies of each other in every possible way. And dont ask me how or why, you know it to be true! No scope for any originality. Every movie has a linear theme: 2 jokes, 10 action scenes, 2 item numbers to cater a population of over 100 crores! Wow just Wow!!

    KICK is a typical knockout masala entertainer that has all the
    quintessential ingredients of a typical Salman Khan movie ; high octane
    action, sizzling romance, rib tickling comedy and Topsy-turvy
    storyline.Logic be damned, you won’t be disappointed while watching this
    movie & this movie gives you enough reasons to get kicked whether
    you are a Salman fan or not.
