Tubelight is the story of two brothers Bharat (Sohail Khan) and Laxman (Salman Khan) who are orphans. They share a close bonding with each other that they live for each other. Things change completely after Bharat joins army and heads for the India – China war. This is during this time, Laxman misses his brother badly and starts his journey for him. The rest of the film is all about the people he meets and bonds during this journey. Watch Tubelight to know if Laxman meets his brother Bharat.

The first half of Tubelight manages to build the characters of the film. The narration has been dead slow that it leaves the audience irritated. Though the film lacks interesting plot, Kabir Khan manages to narrate the film depending on the bonding between two brothers. Salman has been showcased in a never seen dull character which may not be digested by most of the audience and his fans. The first half of Tubelight offers nothing.

The second half which is quite crucial too manages to stand dull and makes no impact all over. The songs look completely outdated and they test the patience of the audience. The unwanted characters kill the film’s flavour completely and Tubelight on the whole fails in all the available ways to impress the audience. With a routine and predictable climax, Tubelight second half is a massive disappointment.

Performance :

Salman Khan who is the man of masses has been showcased in a dull and underrated role, which will sure be not accepted, by most of the audience. His character has been completely restricted that makes no impact. Sohail Khan has been extremely impressive in the emotional episodes and he stands strong with his performance. Zhu Zhu and Matin are the only saviours of the film. All the other actors have been decent.

The story of Tubelight is the major drawback and it kills the complete film. Salman’s characterization and the screenplay are the major letdowns of the movie. The dialogues look good and the music has been ok. The background score and the cinematography are the major assets of Tubelight and the production values looked good. Kabir Khan wastes a golden opportunity and the film falls flat in all the available ways.

Final Word

Tubelight is a huge shock for Salman Khan and his team as the film fails to impress the audience bigtime. One of the biggest debacles in the recent times.

  • Julie 2 Movie Review
    Julie 2 Movie Review

    Julie 2 starts on a decent note but the film turns weird as it passes on. The levels of vulgarity has been injected into the film forcefully which makes the film look unnatural. The skin show of Raai Laxmi looks decent for some time but the audience get shattered for the unwanted glamorous attempts throughout. The director fails in all the available ways in narrating the dark facts with utmost perfection. The first half of Julie 2 has been dull and fails to live up the expectations. The second half of Julie 2 too offers nothing interesting. The entire film looks predictable, outdated and creates enough confusion. The director misses the clarity on his hold and the plot gets deviated several times. The songs have been ok but they don't match the film's mood. The climax has nothing much to offer as the entire plot has been unfolded before. The second half of Julie 2 is a sheer disappointment.


  • Ittefaq Movie Review
    Ittefaq Movie Review

    The first half of Ittefaq has been well framed and is perfectly narrated. The film has been tight and racy right from the first shot and is a treat to watch. You will be deceived with each twist that comes in the film. The performaces need a bow and the entire first half has been extremely interesting. The second half too has been well maintained and is captured well. The director made sure that the film is not deviated at any frame and is equally thrilling and entertaining. The climax is hard hitting that one will be left boggled. On the whole Ittefaq is a film that should not be missed.


  • Golmaal Again Movie Review
    Golmaal Again Movie Review

    Golmaal Again has been focussed mostly on entertainment which has been laced with horrifying episodes. The film is not a comedy unlike the previous installments of Golmaal and is laced with loads of horror. The songs have been shot well and the first half of Golmaal Again looks decent with enough dose of entertainment. The second half of Golmaal Again dips down though it has dose of entertainment. Some of the episodes have been repeated and have been taken from the previous installments. Some of the episodes fail to make any impact however the climax of the film has been thoroughly engaging. On the whole, the second half of Golmaal Again is a disappoinment but manages to sail finally.


  • Secret Superstar Movie Review
    Secret Superstar Movie Review

    Secret Superstar starts on an interesting note and it explains all the small and interesting aspects of the lead characters. Before execution, Secret Superstar has been penned well and is perfectly presented on screen. The performances along with the background score and the way the film has been executed will blow everyone away. The entire first half frames up the film beautifully and makes a strong impact across the audience. The second half has been exceptional right from the first frame and is a treat to watch. Aamir Khan will be seen in an extended cameo and Zaira Wasim tops the show with her flawless and stupendous performance. The pre-climax episodes elevate the film and the climax has been hard hitting. Secret Superstar has a beautiful second half which conveys a strong message for every Indian.

    Judwaa 2 Movie Review

    Judwaa 2 has been promising and entertaining right from the first frame. Varun Dhawan carried the entire film on his shoulders and he is a treat to watch. He excelled completely in the comic scenes and Judwaa 2 is his best film till date. Though the plot has been completely predictable, it is the entertainment, action and the songs which leave the audience entertaining. The first half of Judwaa 2 has been decent and lives up the expectations. The second half of Judwaa 2 too stands decent because of the entertainment levels. All the characters have been recreated from the original and not much homework has been done. The makers have been completely focused on the entertainment and the glamour. The songs have been shot well and they come at the right time in the film. The climax has been quite appealing and on the whole the second half too is a passable ride completely.
