Tubelight Review: Salman is a shot-down star in his one!

Kareena Kapoor Karisma Kapoor and Salman Khan

In terms of occupancy, Tubelight has recorded the lowest opening compared to recent Salman Khan films. While Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a film, which makes me sit in front of the television even today, Tubelight hardly strikes a chord!

"Tubelight", also featuring Salman's brother Sohail and child actor Matin Rey Tangu, is set in the backdrop of the India-China war of 1962.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Tubelight suffers from an overdose of saccharine sweetness and a Salman Khan avatar that tries desperately to be loveable and endearing.

Salman Khan couldn't be better.

While Laxman hates them at first, Lee and Guwo turn his friends after Banne Chacha (Om Puri) tells him to follow the Gandhian principle of befriending who you consider your enemy.

In the army, the story goes like Bharat enrolls and goes off to fight and then vanishes, leaving Laxman Singh Bisht depressed and dejected.

On the whole, this movie with a new storyline is a refreshing one from casual romantic films. During that Om Puri asked Salman Khan to believe in himself he taught him that with the belief he can even move mountains. The second half especially has so many random songs that pop out of nowhere that you keep checking your watch. Pritam's Naach Meri Jaan and Sajan Radio are magical, as is Shah Rukh Khan's cameo as magician, Go-Go Pasha. "And he was like no, we need a star", Salman said". And left his breath in a war against China.

Tubelight, an adaptation of 2015 American movie Little Boy, is Khan's fourth straight Eid release and his seventh since 2010. To say honestly, many find him the "Hero" of the Tubelight. Salman and his co-star Anushka Sharma were appreciated for their performances in Sultan.

Maniesh Paul: Timing between Salman Khan and Sohail Khan is so good. Salman with his charming and innocence looks captures the hearts of the audience. Ek Tha Tiger or Bajrangi Bhaijaan, both the films had a plot, but Tubelight seems to be far away from them.

Now on its very first day of release, the film is expected to have a box office collection of Rs. 25 Crores**. But, multiplexes said the occupancies are expected to pick up during the evening and over the long holiday weekend.

But, will Tubelight surpass the ₹300-crore mark at the Indian box office like Sultan? The collection of Tubelight may increase in coming days due to extended weekend till Monday [Eid festivities]. The start is good considering that it is a normal working day and the size of release.
