Tiger Zinda Hai has the new captain to lead – Ali Abbas Zafar and he chooses a subtle way to start the film. Creating an intense backdrop, explaining what he has in store for is he brings in the Tiger Salman Khan and Zoya Katrina Kaif.
In an elongated snowy entry scene – Tiger (Salman Khan) is seen facing a pack of wolves. Salman finally gets his trademark entry scene with the magical touch of Ali Abbas Zafar. As we’ve seen in the promo Tiger is on a mission to set free nurses that are took as hostages in Iraq.
“Chutti over, back to work,” Shenoy (Girish Karnad) says when he starts to track Tiger who’s in exile since past 8 years. Tiger builds up a team to execute this mission. When Ek Tha Tiger wasn more on action, this is high on story.
In future to be termed as one of the best espionage thrillers in Bollywood – Tiger Zinda Hai has a lot of Ali Abbas Zafar in it. Amazingly choreographed action sequences, not letting the plot lose its soul, keeping the machoism of Salman intact – Ali tackles with a lot of stuff in the first half.
An addition to the major plus points is also the background music of Julius Packiam. The amazingly infused BGM pushes good scenes to very good. First half has ended on a good note, hope second half provides entertainment in the same dose. Stick to this space for the full review of Tiger Zinda Hai.
