Review: Kick

One of the most awaited movies of the year, Kick has finally released across 4000 screens on the festive occasion of Eid. Festivity paired with Khan’s strong fan base is working in Kick’s favor. Moreover, Kick is not completely illogical and insane like most of his movies. You can certainly expect to be entertained even if you aren’t a Salman Khan fan.

Bollywood bombshell Jacqueline Fernandez as Shaina is playing Devil’s (Salman Khan) love interest in the movie. Like a new and improved version of Zarine Khan, Jacqueline’s role is restricted to the glam factor of the movie.

Failing to strike a chord, she only manages to look pretty.. Extremely pretty throughout the movie, without complimenting the chemistry the duo shares on-screen. Instead, leggy lass Nargis Fakhri in the item song Devil, oozes out some oomph moments with her curvilicious figure and groovy moves.

The movie starts with gorgeous lady Jacqueline, who then narrates the story about Devi Lal akka Devil. To get a Kick, Devi does everything differently. He falls in love with Poland-based Shaina Mehra (Jacqueline Fernandez). Shaina’s father Brijesh Mehra (Saurabh Shukla) doesn’t like Devi for his unpredictable behavior and disapprove this romance. Due to their differences, Devi gets separated from Shaina. Brijesh tries to setup Shaina with his friend’s son Himanshu Tyagi (Randeep Hooda). Himanushu is a police officer, who has come to Poland to investigate a criminal case. Shaina tells Himanshu about her love for Devi, on the other hand Himanshu is also looking for a criminal named Devil. They both don’t know that devi and devil is the same person. From here starts the story of of revenge, romance, chase and mind blowing action.

Directed by Sajid Nadiadwala, Kick offers a perfect platter of all the flavors intact. Ranging from humor, emotion, action and heroism, Kick offers it all. With every element in the right composition, nothing gets overdosed, be it laughter or action. The movie is captivating and will keep you engaged with its quirky twists and turns. Though, the climax could have been better, the entire plot as a whole compliments the already prominent star power. Salman Khan alone usually is enough to bring audience to theaters; his power pack performance is expected to do wonders with an equally amazing script.

Seasoned actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui as a dirty politician is an epitome of finesse. From his dialogue delivery to his creepy laughter, everything is remarkable. With his limited role, he has proved his worth and have outshone other actors in the film. Others who have prominent roles are Randeep Hooda, Mithun Chakraborty and Archana Puran Singh.

Though I am not a die hard Salman Khan fan, I thoroughly enjoyed the movie for its freshness and smooth pace. You can be sure to get value for money. The festivity couldn’t get any better with a fun filled evening in theaters. A must watch for Salman Khan Fans.
