With the release of some remarkable movies like ‘Baahubali: The Conclusion’, ‘Toilet: Ek Prem Katha’, and a couple more lined up for the next two months, 2017 has been quite an eventful year for Bollywood so far. While, most of us are looking forward to Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s ‘Padmavati’, let’s not forget that Salman Khan is right behind him, all set to blow our minds away with ‘ Tiger Zinda Hai ‘.
Yash Raj Films today dropped the much-awaited trailer of the movie and we have now officially lost our chill. In 2012, Tiger, an Indian spy came into our lives along with his leading lady, Zoya (Katrina Kaif) who turned out to be a Pakistani agent. The two love birds disappeared from the radar of RAW and ISI and while we were dreaming about the two living a happy life, chilling on a beach with their kids; turns out that spies can’t stay away from beating the lights out of bad guys for long.
Fast forward five years and our lethal duo are back in action, this time for a combined mission to eliminate a common enemy, Abu Usman, whose accent is harder to decode than a doctor’s prescription. But, we guess Salman can decipher his language, so he was summoned (don’t ask how the agencies got hold of him now when they couldn’t in 2012, technology maybe) to take the matter in his hands.
Set in the backdrop of Iraq, an evil dictator and his terrorist organisation kidnaps a group of Indian nurses, Salman’s mission is to save them from their evil clutches. In the first few seconds of the trailer, you realize what you are signing up for –killer fighting sequences, shots being fired and bombs exploding everywhere, cars and buildings blowing up and lots and lots of classic kick-ass action. Don’t get confused, Rohit Shetty is not a part of this film, other directors too can blow up cars like a pro. The trailer looks amazing and there’s not even a single frame that will make you snooze.
While Salman was possibly chugging down some magical potion that was originally kept hidden with Rambo, James Bond or Terminator; Katrina Kaif seems to have taken a sip as well before dealing with the bad guys. From killing terrorists with a gun that’s bigger than her face without blinking an eyelid and taking down enemies like it’s nobody’s business; Katrina is the new superhero in the block, sans the power of Wonder Woman.
Salman Khan and epic dialogues go hand in hand and he continues this legacy in this one too. “Shikaar to sab karte hai, lekin Tiger se behtar shikaar koi nahi karta.” We won’t be surprised if this statement goes down in the golden pages of Bollywood as one of the most intense dialogues ever (for reasons most of us are already aware of), after Gabbar’s “Kitne Aadmi The” and Shahenshah’s “Rishte me to hum tumhare baap lagte hai.”
The trailer looks promising and Ali Abbar Zafar has done a commendable job in turning ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ into a spy movie that every Hollywood or Bollywood actor would like to be a part of. The movie is slated to release on December 22.
