Kick movie had developed a lot of anticipation from media and fans all over the world, with Salman Khan extensively promoting his movie we thought this might end up like another Jai Ho. But fortunately Kick is everything that Jai Ho wasn't. A perfect film and a sure shot entertainer that is definitely going to rock the Box Office like a storm.
Salman Khan has been thrashed a lot for making too many remakes, the many movie bloopers that occur, but trust me after seeing the movie, all these thoughts are going to be washed off, as Salman Khan's movie manages to give a kick to the naysayers. Sajid Nandiadwala may have debuted in direction with a south remake but when it comes to making the movie, we will be seeing a lot of Hollywood influence in it.
But the star of the movie is never the hero but the story and script that can grip the audiences and make sure they stick to their seats and get entertained. The movie begins with the introduction of Shaina (Jacqueline Fernandez), a chivalrous girl, whose family begins to pressurize her into marrying a certain police officer. On a train journey in Warsaw, Shaina meets Himanshu (Randeep Hooda) to discuss their prospective marriage. Both are not interested in this arranged union and end up becoming friends. Shaina decides to reveal her past and the movie goes into flashback.
Here enters our ‘Dabangg' hero Salman Khan, Shaina first meets him, when she tries to help her friend with her love marriage, an alliance that the girl's mother doesn't approve of. Devi Lal (Salman Khan) comes and helps with the marriage. But Shaina develops instant hatred towards him, because of his "kick" attitude and character. But eventually after a lot of to and fro moments, the duo end up falling in love.
Himanshu too opens up about his past, of how he has finally met his match, an intelligent thief Devil (Salman Khan). At this point in the movie the flashback is over and the story begins to proceed in the present tense and suddenly out of nowhere Devi Lal again enters Shaina's life on the pretext of having lost his memory.
Positives: The grand execution of story, stunts, songs and dialogues by Sajid Nadiadwala which make us feel like we are watching a Hollywood flick. The actors have all essayed their role to perfection and the dialogues in the movie are applaud worthy.
Negatives: Some scenes seem tad too immature and lack logic, like Salman Khan's casual interaction with the police, while some scenes of Salman Khan and Mithun seem too stretched than necessary.
Small hiccups which can be easily ignored considering the opulence of the movie. Randeep Hooda is a brilliant actor who has essayed his role to perfection and manages to leave an impression in the minds of the people who watch the movie. Nawazuddin Siddiqui proves why he is a treasure to our film industry, his witty conversation with the protagonist leaves us speechless, there is a reason why he was chosen for this role and he truly justifies it.
Jacqueline Fernandez is a visual treat, but needs to improve her diction for she should not seem like another Katrina Kaif, she surely has the potential to turn into a noteworthy actor and Kick has provided her the much needed push in her otherwise dull career. The songs at times seem a little forced, but the execution of the Kick movie is definitely worth applauding. This definitely doesn't seem like Sajid's debut in direction. This movie is as rich as his other movies.
A full masala entertainer, that Salman Khan has solely carried on his shoulders. The rest of the star cast only adds to the opulence of the movie, like a cherry on the icing of a very delicious cake. Continue to read Kick review in the slideshow.
