Bajrangi Bhaijaan (2015)

STORY – 1
DIRECTOR – 1
ACTOR – 1
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 5/5

 

 

PROS –
1) Not the typical Salman “no-brainer”; an emotional roller-coaster. It’s surely annoying at times but it’s the best Salman Khan movie since Dabangg (2010).
2) Nawazuddin Siddiqui as Chand Nawab and Om Puri’s effective cameo compensates for the bad performances from the main cast.
3) Bhar Do Jholi Meri – Qawwali

 

 

CONS –
1) Salman & Kareena are visibly old for the roles they are playing.
2) Thanks to so many bad movie coming these day, our standard for a Bollywood movie has gone down to another level. Even with sloppy direction with predictable and cliched twists, the movie looks tolerable.
