Salman Khan’s new blockbuster movie ‘Kick’ was well received in both Pakistani and Indian cinemas. Majority of fans had good reviews for the movie. Jacqueline’s performance has been especially acclaimed and Movie Pundits predict she will no longer be rated a second class Bollywood actress after this movie.
The movie has earned 53 crore in the first two days of its release. In Pakistan the movie broke Dhoom 3 record by earning 20 million on its first day. Amir Khan’s Dhoom 3 had earned 19 million while Pakistan own Waar had made about 11.3 millions.
Plot of ‘Kick’ Movie:
Devi Lal (Salman Khan) gets a ‘kick’ out of doing the most odd things in life. He doesn’t live the stereotypical life of an average Joe. Instead he goes about doing things that make him happy or in his words give him a ‘kick’. Before you wonder what is the ‘kick’ concept, let me tell you that the makers have written the story in such a way that all his idiosyncrasies and strange habits and behavior make sense when the story unfolds to its logical end in the climax. Devi Lal becomes Devil in the second half with a police inspector (Randeep Hooda) playing a cat and mouse game with him. Nawazuddin plays the baddie, but in the most unconventional way. Jacqueline provides the glamour quotient and gives Salman the much needed sizzle and sex appeal. Sajid Nadiadwala smartly weaves in a social message and even subtly promotes Salman’s Being Human at various junctures in the film.
What’s hot about the movie
One word – Salman! This guy has never looked so good in any of his films, and we are talking about his IMDB biography from Wanted to Dabangg. The Salman of Kick seems like a different person. He’s more confident, relaxed, at ease even when he’s doing Ahmed Khan’s difficult dance steps in Jumme Ki Raat, or giving those tight closeups which looked slightly embarrassing in his previous films.
Randeep Hooda has some brilliant moments courtesy dialogues by Rajat Arora. But Nawazuddin steals the thunder every time he comes on screen. The actor has got an amazing role in Kick, and he leaves no stone unturned in ensuring he plays up to the gallery with those smart alec one liners.
Production values are top class and the film looks rich and stylish. Nargis Fakhri’s Devil Song comes at the right point giving the film a shot in its arm. She looks stunning and the song looks hauntingly beautiful on the big screen
The movie feels slow for the first 30 to 40 minutes. It takes time to pickup its pace during that time. Also there are scenes in the first half between Salman and Mithun that somehow drag on endlessly and serve no real purpose. The sentimental stuff that happens in the second half needed to be toned down as it doesn’t fit with the mood and theme of the film. Salman’s french beard look came across a bit rushed and takes time to adjust with us.
Jacqueline not only looks like a million bucks but she’s sprung a huge surprise in Jumme Ki Raat where she does a Beyonce meets Shakira one minute solo act which will have your jaw drop in awe! Words can’t explain the sheer awesomeness of that moment. She also has great chemistry with Salman and that only adds up in making the songs look so much better.
What to do
Kick isn’t just reinventing Salman’s work portfolio, but it is also going to rewrite box-office figures and previous records set by the actor. Kick is a full on entertainer that will give you the much needed ‘kick’ in cinema halls this weekend!
