At 8:59 p.m. IST today the full-fledged trailer of Tubelight was aired @ StarIndia and on the YouTube Channel of Salman Khan Films (SKF).
Tubelight is the story of one man’s unshakable belief in himself and love for his family. The trailer of the movie is two minutes and seventeen seconds long and has been passed with a U certificate. Tubelight is an official remake of 2015s Hollywood movie ‘Little Boy’.
The trailer starts with a happy-go-lucky Salman Khan (Laxman) singing and having fun with locals. When he falls from his speeding cycle, a boy can be heard calling him ‘Tubelight.’ The start of the trailer also shows his emotional bond with his brother Bharat (Sohail Khan).
Problems begin when Bharat, who is part of the Indian army’s Kumaon regiment, is called in at the Indo-China border, because the film is set against the backdrop of the 1962 Sino-Indian war. After waiting for Bharat and not knowing his whereabouts, Laxman leaves on a mission to find him. How Laxman touches everyone’s life on the way, is where Tubelight’s heart is.
Since Salman and Kabir are back together after 2015 blockbuster Bajrangi Bhajijaan, comparisons will be drawn between the two films but there is no doubt that this trailer has the same feel as Bajrangi Bhaijaan, may be because Salman has not done too many roles of an innocent boy hailing from a small town.
Mostly the film has been shot in Leh and Ladakh to maintain the authenticity of its theme.
This period drama also stars Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, child artist Matin Ray Tangu and late actor Om Puri in key roles. King Khan AKA Shah Rukh Khan has a cameo in the film as well. The Song named RADIO has already started topping the charts!
Tubelight will hit the theatres on June 25, 2017.
