Tubelight movie review: Salman Khan, a misfit for the role

Tubelight movie review: Salman Khan, a misfit for the role
Written by Priyanka sarangi

Tubelight movie is finally out. Tubelight the die hard waiting movie is here to entertain the audience. But it seems that it failed to create an impact on the boxoffice. The movie Tubelight kicks off with the story of a man who is extremely innocent and takes a little more time to understand things and therefore the name signifies the name Tubelight. The movie is an Indian war drama set in 1962 Sino-Indian War where Salman Khan plays the role of a boy named Laxman and Sohail Khan plays the role of his brother Bharat.

Coming to the most respectable man in the movie, Lt Om Puri was the most finest thing to watch in the movie. Tubelight marks Om Puri’s last filmed performance. Om Puri’s sudden demise came as a major shock for the team of Tubelight. And the movie makers dedicated the movie to the great man.

In our Bollywood industry, every Khan is very much respected and their movies are always awaited by a huge number of fans. This time it was Salman Khan’s Tubelight which created a lot of buzz on the social media. But as there is a Hindi phrase, ”Jo Garajta Hain Vo Barasta Nahi Hain” same is the case with Salman Khan’s Tubelight movie.

The movie led to a misfit of a 51 year old man as the main lead of the movie that too in such a childish role to play.Looking at Salman Khan’s performance in the movie, it seems that this movie was in Sohail Khan’s fate. He shined all over the movie as he was playing a very important role in the movie. Then one of the main reason why people did not like the movie was the story as it is said to be a remake of a 2015 American movie called Little Boy. Therefore,the audience lost interest in the repetitive story.

Moreover, we haven’t seen Salman Khan romancing and in the movie Zhu Zhu plays his love interest. Zhu Zhu played a very significant role in the movie. The best part of the movie seems to be the presence of the little boy Matin Rey Tangu. The talented payed full justice to his character. Altogether the movie could not meet the expectations of the people as it met in Salman Khan’s last movie Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

The one word that can be used for the movie is just ‘Disappointing’ as the audience expected something better from a person like Salman Khan. Lets hope the best next time!!
