This time with Bajrangi Bhaijaan, he has outdone himself! This is not just a typical Salman movie that is out an out entertainment, this Kabir Khan directorial has story, emotions, a star performance and most important of all, you will see Salman Khan act like he has never done before.

The chemistry Harshaali and Salman share is truly heart touching and something that can tear you up as well. But the humorous and enjoyable scenes between Nawaz and Salman are not to be missed as well.

While the first half is simple, Salman makes it rather enjoyable. It is the second half that contains all the hilarious comedy and gets super entertaining. In simple words, it is a must watch movie! Don't miss!

It has superstar Salman Khan. It has melodrama. It has song and dance. It has a pretty lead actress. It features two topics of discussion that are favourites with the Indian audience: religion and cross-border tension. And it has a cute little thing that, without saying a single word, will make you laugh and cry.

Just don’t forget to take that box of tissues with you.

Director Kabir Khan captures the attention of the viewers right from first shot of this character driven film. He has very sensibly handled the emotional scenes, without going overboard.

On the whole, BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN is a not to be missed 'Eid' treat from Salman Khan and Kabir Khan. The film is a surefire hit and has got 'B-L-O-C-K-B-U-S-T-E-R' written all over it. This film easily qualifies to be Salman Khan's BEST movie till date, featuring his career's best performance. The film wins you over completely. Do not skip.

Needless to say, Salman is one many army against all the hindrances and that'll suit his fans. But you may also fall for Nawazuddin's reporter act. Kareena Kapoor Khan glows but that's the most of it. Harshaali is cuteness overload and that may inspire some 'aww' moments.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan is totally dependent on Salman Khan's superstardom and he pulls it off provided you overlook his in-your-face 'bhai' act in some scenes. It's an entertaining film for sure, definitely in the not-to-be-missed category.

Director Kabir Khan has been sharp enough to spot the soft boy in the tough guy image and has given Khan a complete makeover as the innocent Hanuman bhakt who never lies.

And to give Kabir Khan credit, Bajrangi Bhaijaan far less preachy and more effective than PK.

Does this simple story bordering on the dumb with a simpleton character work? Strangely, yes. Thanks to Khan’s uncharacteristic convincing performance and intelligent direction by the Ek Tha Tiger director who seemed to have forgotten his craft after his first film, Kabul Express.

If you think you have to leave your brains at home for a Salman Khan film, be surprised. This one will need you to take your heart along with your brains as well. For above everything else, 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' sure has its heart in its/his right place.

Be ready to want to wolf whistle, even when you have a tear or two stealthily streaming down your cheek. Watch it.
