Kick is a Salman Khan film that only and only glorifies his every move, muscle and mannerism. Whether it’s being masked and taking on the Devil, or being smitten by an absolutely gorgeous Jacqueline Fernandez, he’s just Salman Khan and not the character.
Kick is all about Shaina (Jacqueline Fernandez), Devil (Salman Khan) and their love for each other. Everything’s going great until one day Devil leaves Shaina deserted to get some Kick in life. All he wants from life is adventure and thrill.
Shaina is heartbroken at first but eventually decides to give in to her family’s wish of getting her married to a police office, Himanshu (Randeep Hooda). They meet on a train and Shaina opens up to him about her relationship with Devil. Himanshu too, shares his past experiences as a police officer. The story takes a turn when they realize their stories have Devil in common and now Devil returns. Wow what a story.
As the producer of Kick, Sajid Nadiadwala has done full justice to his product but as a director he is a disaster as Kick is just another Salman Khan film. The cinematography is the hero of Kick, while I am still trying to understand how has Chetan Bhagat managed to write this one.
The action and stunts are as good, Saurabh Shukla and Sanjya Mishra are awesome, Jacqueline Fernandez is a good show piece and lets not talk about Randeep Hooda and Nawazuddin Siddiqui as they having nothing to do in the film and I wonder why are they even there. All said and done, Kick is all about Salman Khan and Salman Khan as he rocks in both the looks in the film.
The film will technically get two openings; one today (July 25, 2014) and one one Eid (July 29, 2014) but we are very sure that people would come out disappointed as the film completely defies logic.
Yes the film will Kick the Box Office in a big way as the time of its is very apt, its a Salman Khan film and it has managed to get a lot of screens, but will it be able to get equity and respectability; well lets not even get there.
Watch the film for Salman Khan.
Kick is not about good or bad cinema, its not about good or bad script its not about Salman Khan and his histrionics but Kick is just about going ou...2.0
