Being the only release this week, Tubelight is enjoying as many as 18 shows a day at multiplexes of major cities. The ticket rates are ranging from 200- 500 which is the normal fare for a Khan film.
The reviews from critics are mostly average. Very few of them have actually rated the film above 3 stars. Nevertheless, it’s Bhai’s film and when it is a ‘Bhai’s film’ the reviews don’t matter much to them! However, not missing out on the core point that the film’s lifetime business will totally depend on ‘Janta’s verdict’.
Tubelight marks the 3rd collaboration between director Kabir Khan and Salman Khan, the duo had earlier given blockbusters like Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan.
Produced under the banner of Salman Khan Films, Tubelight also features Salman Khan’s brother Sohail Khan, Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, late actor Om Puri and Matin Rey Tangu in key roles.
