Salman Khan's Tubelight Welcomed With Cake And Dhol. But Twitter's Confused

"Also they couldn't be macho or cool because of the character Salman plays in the film.The actor plays a character who is sweet and cute and the music had to be such too". In a small picturesque town in North India, Laxman (Salman Khan) lives with his younger brother Bharat (Sohail Khan).

The shoes Salman Khan wearing in the film have the biggest plot behind. Sohail Khan and Om Puri gave terrific performances. Seeing the carnage around him and anxious for his brother, Laxman decides he must stop this conflict and get his brother back. At first Laxman hates them but soon they became friends. The Kabir Khan-directed film is based on the Hollywood movie, Little Boy, which hadn't really done well at the box office. But even his scenes with Khan feel superficial, nearly as if they were trying to duplicate the "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" chemistry between Khan and the child actor in that film, Harshaali Malhotra. This is a wartime film absolutely devoid of any sense of valour, or vainglory associated with war.

The lucky few will be picked from the hashtag feed and willwin a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to meet Salman Khan. Salman's last film Sultan, which was released a day ahead of Eid, amassed an impressive Rs 36.54 crore on an opening day.

The audience will also see Shah Rukh Khan in a very crucial role in Tubelight. "He'll call everyone "uncle" but he'll call me "brother". Kabir Khan lost his game this time, no matter he tried to touch upon Indo-China war for a change, but the film falls flat.

Salman Khan has an ability to make any common person a known figure and we totally accept it. The openings of Baahubali 2 are out of reach for Salman Khan. Like how he shakes the city like an natural disaster with his faith, really? No seriously! Who's who of Bollywood right from Shah Rukh Khan, Imtiaz Ali to Sonakshi Sinha, Preity Zinta were in attendance. Does it make sense?

On the whole, though TUBELIGHT is expected to enjoy a bountiful opening weekend, the mixed to negative reviews for the film from critics are bound to affect footfalls in theatres. He is worshiped by zillions of his fans across the globe who are certainly ignorant towards criticism. Lets hope the best next time! Om Puri and Zhu Zhu are just about average, but the little boy Matin steals the show with his cute face and dialogue deliveries.
