Ek Tha Story.....
Ek Tha Chemistry....
Tha.... The operative word.....Tha.....Hai nahi.... Tha....They are extinct now...
Every EID Salman gives us a chance to go into the theater and hoot the hell out of our system... This EID he has decided to make us snore. .. and how ! " Ek tha Tiger " - the name portends extinction and why not? If Tigers would have seen this film, they would definitely be extinct!
For a film based on the 2 intelligence agencies in the neighbouring countries, it sure lacks intelligence! And that's a little unexpected from Kabir Khan. Surprisingly, it lacks the madness of Salman Khan films too. It's neither entertaining nor sensible... it's unadulterated boredom. Especially the first half. If you survive it, you might find the 2nd half a little better. Simply because the 2nd half gives your jaw a break from the continuous yawning caused by the first.
ETT is essentially a love story..... or so they say. The lead actors have no chemistry at all and are so cold towards each other that even Ranvir Shorey seems to have better chemistry with his beard!!! Salman looks bored as hell and Katrina seems to be doing the film to pay some "pichle janam ka karz ".
The songs are insipid and the lack of story is startling. The director cuts into slow motion shots whenever he wants to lengthen the scene. And don't ask me about logic please... Logic has given up on Salman a decade ago.... The saving graces are the locations and a couple of action sequences. Salman and Katrina seem to be having most fun during the action scenes and the second half becomes bearable due to them.
In the age, where a film is declared a HIT on the first day, this is surely a Blockbuster. But there is no doubt about it.. This Tiger will be extinct soon.. Because this Tiger is looking old and haggard... At best a circus tiger, jumping and pumping at the whip.... So don't even think about going for this film.. You might as well burn 500 bucks... Coz if you see the film, people might have to apply EK THA before your name too!
Should definitely have been called " Boring Tiger, Hidden Logic "!
Rating: 3 / 10 ( For a couple of high class Action scenes )
