The year’s biggest film –Ek Tha Tiger
“Are they ‘friends’?” or “Are they not?”- are the questions that often linger in the minds of their fans. Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif- the former lovers- have always been successful in keeping their personal equations under covers. And this has only led to more and more of speculations about them. This duo is lately in the news for their latest offering- “Ek Tha Tiger”.
“Ek Tha Tiger”, releasing on the 15th of August has managed to garner a lot attention from the film fraternity and from eager movie buffs for more than a few things. Let’s shed some light on some of the film’s key features that has kept the interest around it alive.
Yash Raj Banner and Salman Khan-
Yash Raj films banner is hailed as the most esteemed and celebrated production house in the Hindi film industry. Be it newbies or the most established stars, they always want to grab the opportunity of working under this banner.
However, what is most astonishing is that, a star like Salman Khan has never worked with the Yash Raj Films before and that this will be his first experience of working with the production house. This is the very first instance that the audiences will see the coming together of the banner with this Khan. Thus, evidently this film is being touted as the year’s biggest film.
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s sizzling chemistry-
A big USP of the film is Salman and Katrina’s screen presence. The two have acted together in a number of films. Some of them have been box office success and some not. The very first time that the audiences saw this the-then real-life couple on- screen was “Maine Pyar Kyun Kiya”. The film was a hit. Their last film together “Yuvvraj” was a dud at the box- office. But, their chemistry is something that has always been talked about and brought audiences to the theatres. They are a pair, unlike many others, who have been able to transcend their real life romance on screen.
This film offers many tender moments between Salman and Katrina as seen in the film’s promos. However, this time around we will have to wait and see if they can rekindle magic onscreen.
Kabir Khan- the director-Kabir Khan the director of noteworthy films like “Kabul Express” and “New York” has carved his own niche in the Hindi film industry. His sense of making films is unparalleled in the fraternity. The topics he chooses to make films on, is typical only of him.
His previous films have received a lot of adulation from the critics as well as the audiences. He as a director has proved that he has the ability to extract performances out of his actors. We hope he does the same with this film too.
The film’s storyline-
The film belongs to the genre of romantic action thriller. The genre that is the most flourishing in today’s time and who best than Salman to play the lead. He is an undercover agent for India and is code named Tiger in the film. Katina plays the character of Zoya. The film discovers the dark and mysterious world of espionage which is a very interesting theme to weave a movie around and very clearly has roused the curiosity of the audience regarding the film.
The music of this movie has been composed by Sohail Sen of “Mere Brother ki Dulhan” fame. The song Mashallah sung by Shreya Ghoshal and Wajid Ali was an instant hit. From the time that this song hit the small screens and YouTube it became a rage. From Katrina’s look to her costumes in the film all have been able to hit the right cord with the youth. Also her belly dancing moves in the song have created the right amount of oomph.
Salman Khan’s star power-
Salman Khan of-late is enjoying the most successful run at the box-office. His films like Dabangg, Ready, Wanted and Bodyguard have been back to back hits. This has already augmented his market position. Therefore, this is the best time ever to do films with him and Kabir Khan has done rightly so. Salman has a terrific mass appeal due to his electrifying attitude. Action is the genre he excels in and this movie is just that.
“Ek Tha Tiger” has a lot going for
it. The film is releasing with Eid just round the corner- the time when he
mostly releases his films. We hope the movie is a huge hit.
