A sequel to the record-breaking blockbuster ‘Ek Tha Tiger’, ‘Tiger Zinda Hai’ continues the story of two super spies Tiger and Zoya eight years later.
Director Mr. Ali Abbas Zafar, work is good. Without much support from story line he succeeds to keep audience engaged in most part of the film. Here again beaten story line but mission is more visible, emotional, humanity cause of releasing the abducted nurses. In screenplay most of the scenes and shots are conceived separately and then have been tried to connect them but effort is clearly evident throughout. Just to justify a dialogue, a bit long action sequence of Tiger entry has been designed. Same happens for Zoya’s entry but somehow both entries offer something new. Zoya re entry is very apt and impressive. Beginning action sequence is of first rate because there is no pressure to over justify the super hero image. First half is good. A small hot discussion about something hidden in backpack by a fellow member but when it got revealed, you find it very cute, then it got overstretched but finally got good ending. Second half is hasty and sometimes boring, especially the pre climax long action sequence. You just have to remain seated to bear it without a bit of thrill because nothing is established, just everything keeps happening on screen and as an audience , you helplessly watch blast, gun shots and bear their loud sound effects with some boring emotional dialogues in between actions. Even so stale, repeated thrill angle of last bullet remaining thing is stuffed twice. Most of the deliberate comedy sequences fall flat and are somehow irritating. Performance wise Salman Khan is good with his unusual screen presence. Katrina Kaif is perfect with her balanced expressions and first rate in action sequences. Sajjad Delfrooz as Abu Usman is impressive. Kumud Mishra is very good. He finds scope to showcase his acting even without uttering a word, typical strength of a brilliant actor. Paresh Rawal is wasted here. Angad Bedi as Navin is good. Anupriya Goenka as Poorna is very good.
