Rating: 2.5 / 5

Whenever I head myself to a high budget Salman Khan movie, only one thing comes to my mind, HEADACHE. Coincidently Jacqueline’s character also calls him a headache initially. Moving to the movie ache, my entire mind was concentrating on what’s not bad, not on what’s good. I redeem myself from all the miseries these type of movies have given earlier. Not surprisingly, it was a totally different crowd that only waits for Salman Bhai movies to enter into theaters. The really surprising element was the people whistling like anything even before Salman comes, just by seeing the name of the movie. When Salman arrives, no Dolby effect can surpass that.
Sorry for talking so differently this time deviating myself from the movie review, but when Salman is involved, things can’t go in a regular way. Definitely not a headache, rather it is supported by good cinematography and direction. It was a good blend of Salman’s phenomenon and a decent plot to carry the movie through. It leaves flourishing some interest in viewer’s mind in the first half and after the second half, it leaves people full of smiles and with Salman’s sensation.

Salman Khan was the real star of the show after many many years. He genuinely acts well and luckily a good plot backs him. No weird scenes or dialogues on this occasion. Randeep Hooda re-lived his Shootout brilliance and was good throughout. Nawazuddin Siddiqui was the showman in the second half and his small role also left a big impact. Mithun and Jacqueline were just normal.

Sajid Nadiadwala jumped into Direction boots for the first time and was above average in all aspects. I’ll not take anything away from him. As a producer and director, he ensured that full justice should happen to this type of plots that generally run only on star power. At least some legitimate efforts were put this time.

Music wise almost all the songs stopped the flow especially in the second half but I’ll pardon Himesh Reshmiya on this occasion.

Overall after a long time, a big budget Salman’s movie made sense.
