Tiger 3 Box Office Review: Pre-Release Buzz & Impression

We all grew up watching Bollywood’s larger-than-life characters, and one such is Salman Khan’s Avinash Singh Rathore, aka Tiger. The Tiger franchise isn’t just a series of films but an emotion, and no matter how much some people hate the actor, no one can deny that Tiger’s role was tailor-made for Salman. So, YRF deciding to take the Tiger franchise forward with a threequel was always touted as a journey of rewriting box office record books.

While the Tiger franchise has a fan base and value of its own, it, being a part of YRF’s Spy Universe, has pumped up extra hype around the film. It was Shah Rukh Khan’s Pathaan with which the studio officially announced its universe and promised to intelligently mix up their spy films and characters, leading to something huge that Bollywood has never seen before. As a part of it, Shah Rukh Khan and Hrithik Roshan’s cameos have been added to the film. All these things have made this threequel a volcano ready to explode at ticket windows.

The trailer and songs of Tiger 3 didn’t work for me, but it was assured that the film wouldn’t see much impact due to it, as the ground-level buzz is high. So, in the pre-release phase, the stage looked set, with Diwali festivities playing a big role in skyrocketing the box office business.

Tiger 3 Box Office Review: Initial Start, Positives & Negatives

Speaking about the initial start, Tiger 3 has taken a solid start at the Indian box office. In morning and afternoon shows, the occupancy all across the country has been strong, thus doing half of the job for the film. However, the Laxmi Pujan effect is seen in the evening shows, and the occupancy would be low even in night shows.

Coming to the positives, the film has all that hype around itself due to being a part of Spy Universe and a continuation of the Tiger franchise. Such big films have the potential to do record-breaking business during any period of the year, but releasing the Salman Khan starrer during Diwali is a masterstroke decision taken by YRF. Diwali is a lucrative period for Bollywood, and even if the content isn’t that good, films tend to do good business due to holidays. So, at least till the holidays, Tiger 3 will rake in superb numbers.

Also, there’s no major competition in theatres, and the next big film is Ranbir Kapoor‘s Animal, which releases on 1st December. So, this biggie has an open ground to perform for the next 18 days.

Talking about negatives, Tiger 3 has received mixed responses from critics and audiences. So, after a superb business during the Diwali period, the film won’t be able to perform up to the mark. Also, a repeat audience is a must for action entertainers to emerge as a blockbuster, and here, that factor is missing.

Tiger 3 Box Office Review: Final Verdict

Overall, Tiger 3 will shine at ticket windows thanks to Diwali festivities but won’t be able to do historic business. After Pathaan‘s blockbuster success, the Salman Khan starrer was touted to emerge as the highest-grosser in Spy Universe, but that won’t happen now.

By Wednesday (Bhai Dooj), Diwali festivities will come to an end, and till then, the film is expected to do business of 170-180 crores. In the lifetime run, the Tiger threequel is expected to earn 290-320 crores net at the Indian box office.

What’s Good: Salman’s swag, Katrina’s kicks & Emraan’s eyes, the first half & the excitement which Salman Khan fans had at 6 AM before watching the film

What’s Bad: It ruins the legacy of one of my all-time favorite actioners – Tiger Zinda Hai!

Loo Break: It’s a loooooong film that feels longer, so you’ll need a couple of them

Watch or Not?: Only and only if you’re a die-hard Salman Khan or the Spy Universe fan

Language: Hindi

Available On: Theatrical Release

Runtime: 2 hours 35 minutes (feels like three hours+)

User Rating:

It starts in 1999, serving as an emotional backstory to Zoya (Katrina Kaif), merging with the present, where Tiger (Salman Khan) gets just back home from a mission timepass’ involving Gopi (Ranvir Shorey). A plot twist takes Tiger & Zoya on different paths.

Aatish Rehman, a person of influence, is shown as Zoya’s mentor who is after Tiger owing to a personal loss caused by him. He outsmarts Tiger to declare him Pakistan’s enemy. How Tiger punches back to knock him down is what the story is all about.

Tiger 3 Movie Review: Script Analysis

Frustrating! This is how you feel after the second half because the first half is sooooooo goooood. Zoya’s backstory, the conflict, Tiger-Zoya’s origin story, everything beautifully falls into place, leading to living the nightmare I envisioned a couple of days ago. I had all my doubts about Maneesh Sharma’s second-half dilemma because this faces the exact same ‘Fan problem.’ Remember how Fan had everything sorted in its first half, but all hell broke loose in the second half.

VFX around the close-up shots of Salman Khan remains consistently poor amidst an otherwise good-looking film. Action is good, but it’s not visionary. Apart from Salman’s introductory scene in which he’s racing his bike on a mountain, there are no other action pieces that would be discussed like the ones in Jawan.

Owing to the script’s mess, Rameshwar S. Bhagat’s editing gradually starts to pinch you, and its jarring jump cuts strip off the joy of watching the action sequences. Anay Goswamy takes a couple of chances to play around those fast-moving fight sequences and does his camera magic to elevate those scenes further.

Tiger 3 Movie Review: Star Performance

Salman Khan looks so good, but only when he’s doing too much physical action. The style, the sass, and the swag of Tiger still remain, but he gets restricted opportunities to recite the heroic dialogues, thanks to the substandard dialogue writing. He tries his best to balance the damage with his superlative screen presence, but things go beyond repair too soon.

Katrina Kaif owned the iconic hospital action sequence in Tiger Zinda Hai, but here, things get narrowed down to shooting her steamy hamam sequence for no reason at all. There’s no real explanation as to why the Hamam has been chosen to be set up for that scene, and that’s a common problem for many other sequences as well. Her Hindi accent is good until she cracks a strange out-of-syllabus dialogue like “Yeh kanya mardo ko ladna sikhati hai!” When has Zoya ever talked like that?

The worst possible scenario for Emraan Hashmi came true because the ‘dimaag ka khel’ is nothing but a watered-down, shabbily written espionage drama. The hopes of Emraan’s Aatish playing ‘Joker’ to Salman Khan’s ‘Batman’ were too optimistic to be true. Though Emraan performs well, the script really does him wrong. In fact, if you notice, his character traits are similar to John Abraham’s Jim from Pathaan. Agent stripped from his duties, gone rogue, loss of family, revenge from the leading star— this is what Jim was.

Vishal Jethwa is so poorly wasted that I couldn’t help but feel sad for him because he’s an actor you could never go wrong with, and you give him this?

The much-raved-about Shah Rukh Khan cameo also looked too artificial to entice any excitement. His entry & execution are so conveniently done, only to feel like everyone was just waiting for Pathaan to get their a**es kicked. Yes, the two superstars are bromancing each other, riding the Sholay bike, and cracking a joke on the film, but where is the vision?
