VERDICT – 0/5

 

 

PROS –
N/A

 

 
CONS –
1) This movie is gross even by Salman Khan’s standards. A Bollywood masala movie when too much masala is added.
2) A forced Chulbul Pandey origin plot.
3) Annoying dialogues, forgettable performances, and jarring soundtrack.

CULT – 0

 

VERDICT – 1/5

 

 
PROS –
1) Satish Kaushik and Aasif Sheikh brought some fun with their character.

 

 

CONS –
1) Salman Khan tried the bollywoodization of Ode to My Father (2014) but ended up ruining it. He tried amalgamating Forrest Gump (1994) with the Korean movie.
2) The most important strength of Ode to My Father (2014) is its emotional quotient. Ali Abbas Zafar ravaged it by inserting random item numbers and tediously unfunny sub-plots.
3) Forgettable soundtrack.

Sultan (2016)

STORY – 0
DIRECTOR – 0
ACTOR – 0
MUSIC – 1
CULT – 0

Verdict – 1/5

 

PROS –
1) “Jag Ghoomeya” song

 

CONS –
1) Average Bollywood potboiler. It’s not Chak de! India (2007)
2) “Rocky” & “Cinderella Man” meets “Never Back Down”.
3) Lack of good supporting cast. Now, this seems to be a serious issue with Bollywood these days. Average actors playing major characters roles and failing hard.
4) Though it’s a sports film, romance is a major angle but it is not at all convincing & passionate as it is supposed to be (like Ghajini (2008). No chemistry between Salman & Anushka
5) If you have seen the trailer, nothing else to watch.

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.
