The first Tubelight movie review is OUT! Umair Sandhu, the film critic from Dubai who gets to watch movies first, has given a 5-star rating to Salman Khan movie Tubelight! Sandhu writes in his Tubelight movie review on his blog, "The film’s storywriter (Kabir Khan) deserves applauses galore for having come up with such a fresh story that has the right mix of patriotism, love, emotions and brotherhood. Eye Catching Cinematography. Crispy & Sharp Editing. First Rate Production Designing!" He adds, "If it’s a Salman Khan movie, then, songs and music become very crucial. TUBELIGHT music (Pritam Chakraborty) definitely works by all means, majorly because it has all the elements that are required of a typical ‘Salman Khan film’. Music gels extremely well with the film and also the flow of the film. The film already boats of a chartbuster track in the form of ‘Radio‘." | READ: BollywoodLife Review of Tubelight. | ALSO READ: India.com Review of Tubelight.
Sandhu further says, "As far as the performances are concerned, absolutely no prizes for guessing that the film belongs to the one and only Salman Khan, who makes no mistakes in delivering an outstanding performance in this film. His innocence is unmistakably charming. And it is this innocence that unfailingly captures melts and ultimately wins over the audiences’ hearts. Simply He gave National Award Worthy Performance. Terrific Performances by Sohail Khan, Zhu Zhu & Om Puri. Good Performances by all supporting actors. On the whole, TUBELIGHT is a not to be missed ‘Eid’ treat from Salman Khan and Kabir Khan." Rating: ***** (5 Stars)."
Tubelight is an upcoming film of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, releasing on June 23, 2017, ahead of Eid-ul-Fitr 2017. The film is a fictional story set in the backdrop of the 1962 Indo-China war and is written and directed by Kabir Khan, who last directed Bajrangi Bhaijaan, also starring Salman Khan. Pritam has composed the music of Tubelight. The film has been jointly produced by Salman Khan Productions and Kabir Khan. Salman Khan plays the lead role along with Chinese actress Zhu Zhu.
Bollywood superstar Shah Rukh Khan appears in a cameo in Tubelight. Salman Khan's character in Tubelight is named Laxman. He essays the role of a slow learner (hence called Tubelight) who rises above all his weaknesses to find his brother, army man Sohail Khan, who has gone missing post the war between India and China. The basic premise of Tubelight is inspired from Hollywood film 'A Little Boy' which narrated a little boy's journey to stop the on-going war between two countries and find his father who is missing from the war site. There is a little boy in Tubelight as well, played by child actor Matin Ray Tangu.
Tubelight will be the first Indian film to release in China side by side India. Films like Dangal, 3 Idiots, PK, Baahubali: The Beginning, Bahubali 2: The Conclusion, and Happy New Year saw a release in China around six to eight months after the release in India. The recent release of Aamir Khan's Dangal saw it take over the Chinese box office, beating local films as well as Hollywood releases.
