Claps for: Salman being Salman!
Slaps for: Anyone trying to critically analyse this film too much!
Popcorn refill: Right before the film starts, carry a truck load of popcorn.
Performances: Salman Khan was like a one man party in this film, no one else could kick it in this role. Just his expressions were enough to prove that your eyes would be glued to him, even if Jacqueline stood next to him looking better than the night she won a beauty pageant. Jacqueline Fernandez took our attention whenever Salman was out of the frame. Randeep Hooda was decent in his performance. Mithun Chakraborty and Archana Puran Singh did complete justice playing the roles of parents' to this one man party. Nawazuddin Siddiqui gave a commendable performance as the villain.
Story: 'Main dil mein aata hoon, samajh mein nahi'.
Salman Khan warns us well in advance with this dialogue in the trailer. This is the story of a man who lives to get a kick in life which he finds in working towards a noble cause. Now, obviously Salman could do much more than 'Being Human' in a movie to encourage people to come forward and save lives; and so his character 'Devil' does.
*How to enjoy this Kick:
You don't strictly have to be a Salman Khan fan to enjoy this film. Here's how to prepare yourself to get the best out of it.
-Prepare your senses to feel like you've just had a glass of wine, everything you hear and see somehow makes sense.
-Don't try to make sense of the story or how each scene connects to the other, you will lose your kick!
-Accept the fact that Salman is like wine, his personality grows on you.
-If you get a Hangover after watching the film thinking about how you actually enjoyed it, watch 'Jai Ho' 2 times in a row and you'll come back to your 'Non-Salman Khan -Fan' self.
-Enjoy the 'Kick' while it lasts.
Sajid Nadiadwala understood the fact that Salman and his personality had to be the centre of attention and so he directs this film accordingly. The way his film is directed, you will have a smile on your face through most scenes and if you're soft-hearted, you might come out of the theatre blushing. The story progresses smoothly* (Conditions apply, refer to 'How to enjoy this Kick').
Combo-on-offer: 'Kick' is one of those movies you wouldn't mind watching on a weekend with friends. One fine day, when you see this movie playing on your television screen and you don't have friends around, you would just let it play and give the buttons on your T.V remote some well deserved rest.
Final Verdict: We give this film Claps, it was worth the hype.
