Do not understand why Tubelight is being panned by one and sundry… In fact I dreaded that hope it’s not another Bodyguard, Ready kinda film, where Salman the star takes over each and every department.. and surprisingly it was different, at least Salman made an effort.
It’s definitely painful to watch him put such ernest efforts to act, but with due credit to the director, Salman pulled it off well. It is of course and out and out Salman show, though Zeeshan Ayyub irritates even though he is a fine actor. It is an official adaptation of LITTLE BOY, so it’s not as if it’s lifted and copied.
I have seen Little Boy, Jakob Salvati the boy is made of different mettle, but this is not about Little Boy but about our Sultan. And I feel he is in fine form.
Yes, Sultan was notches above this one, and so was the silly, funny Dabbang. Salman “acted” in Sultan too, and was awesome else his larger than life characters like Chulbul were getting on the nerves.
For his fans, who expect “Dhisoom” “Dhisoom” male machoism, they will be disappointed, but it’s not a bad fare, watchable once. However Kabir Khan could have done better and he is capable of the same.
