(Note from SI on why we have two reviews for Ek Tha Tiger: Naveen’s review presents a different perspective of the movie from NRI actor Sonny Chatrath’s uplifting take on the film. The two writers come from different directions. For Naveen, a movie is more than just a movie – It’s a reflection of the nation’s psyche, scars and its history. As an actor, Sonny views a movie from an entertainer’s ‘don’t over-analyze’ perspective – A movie is just a movie where you go to have a good time in the company of friends and family. SI has no preferences on the two reviews.)

Yash Raj Films (YRF) and Salman Khan must think India is a nation of born losers.

Why else would YRF release this unpatriotic movie directed by Kabir Khan on the Indian Independence Day?

…and know what?

Indians are going to respond with a “Hell Yeah!” in unison by making this movie a big hit and reaffirm Sallu Baba’s numero uno status in Bollywood.

The last Salman Khan movie I saw on the big screen was “Karan Arjun” and that was a couple of decades ago.

I maintained a clean record of avoiding his movies until today when I decided to check out if Salman Khan is a Tiger or its more common family member, Pussy.

To my surprise there were not more than 20 people for the 10:45 pm show.

Was it because it was the middle of the week?

Was it because people wanted to wake up early and hunt down Aamir Khan and Abhishek Bachchan who are shooting for Dhoom 3 in Downtown Chicago?

Or have they finally given up on Salman Khan?

It is safe to say it’s not the last one.

Bollywood Star Salman Khan in Ek Tha Tiger

Story

Tiger (Salman Khan) is a Secret Agent working for RAW, India’s intelligence agency.

He has been on deadly missions continuously for 12 years and still thirsts for more.

Tiger’s boss Shenoy (Girish Karnad) sends him to Dublin on a mission to observe the actions of an Indian Scientist (Roshan Seth) suspected of selling secrets to Pakistan.

Gopi (Ranvir Shorey) is Tiger’s secret aide.

During the mission he meets and falls in love with Zoya (Katrina Kaif), a student and caretaker of the scientist. However, it turns out that Zoya is an ISI Agent from Pakistan and she is stealing secrets from the scientist.

As Tiger decides to follow the heart instead of the head, what follows is a cat and mouse game between Tiger, Zoya, RAW and ISI with incredible twists and turns. This forms the rest of the movie.

The first half of the movie establishes Tiger’s credentials as a heroic secret agent and Tiger-Zoya romance.

The second half is all action.

The plot of scientist selling secrets is abandoned midway.

While the plot itself is not bad, it seems Kabir Khan decided not to waste much time on ‘trivial’ things such as logic and reason and instead focus the attention of the audience on long chase and action sequences. He seems to have a particular fascination for Parkour style action/chase.

I will not write much about the illogical aspects as this is a mindless romantic–action thriller where this is absolutely no effort or pretense on making an intelligent movie.

The following examples should give you some idea:

Ø There is a typical Vijayakanthish scene where a tram is heading full speed towards traffic jam and Tiger stops the tram by jumping on to the roof of the train and using his coat and full power to pull down the rod that gets power from the overhead electric cables! Now, can our Captain do that? (‘Captain’ Vijaykanth is a Tamil film star noted for his bizarre style of acting and stunts)

Ø Time and again ISI and RAW agents are shown as incompetent baboons. They get so many chances to end the cat and mouse game but they just stand and stare like clueless idiots

Ø ISI seems light years ahead of RAW! While the ISI agent Zoya quietly steals all information from the scientist’s computer, the RAW agents are busy finding ways to talk to the scientist

Ø Gopi suddenly starts referencing Zoya as Bhabhi although she is many many years younger to him as per the movie timeline. Since when did secret agents develop impulsive emotional bonding?!? If that is not enough, Zoya’s ISI boss preaches to her the virtues of womanhood and her responsibility to safeguard her “izzat”

Ø The lack of seriousness and levity with which Girish Karnad’s character Shenoy assigns missions to Tiger seems as if they are playing a game show on TV

Performances

While not much is expected of actors in action thrillers the least that is expected is to keep things credible.

Salman Khan is undoubtedly the Ajith Kumar of Bollywood. Someone with an extreme economy of expressions and remotely recognizable acting skills (Ajith Kumar is a Tamil film star noted for his pitiful acting skills).

After more than 25 years in the industry, Salman Khan still can’t dance or speak more than two lines at a time. In the scene where he dances with Katrina, he has the perennial look of a man trying to squeeze out the last few drops of piss.

What Salman brings as a compensation for lack of skills is his good looks and excellent physique.

When your hero has such limited talent how different would the leading lady be?

Everyone knows that Katrina Kaif is no Vidya Balan. So we are supposed to look past her inadequacies and ogle at her long legs and fair skin.

What are the talented Girish Karnad, Ranvir Shorey and Roshan Seth doing here?

They must be having a very hungry family to take up these half-baked second and third fiddle roles. They were all ok in their simple roles.

I don’t know the names of the actors who played the Pakistani ISI agents but it seems they were all half-asleep when shooting.

Sajid-Wajid and Sohail Sen’s music is passable with a couple of decent songs (Mashallah and Banjaara) but nothing memorable.

Recommendation

What Ek Tha Tiger lacks in depth, storytelling, logic and performances, it makes up to some extent in style, photography, picturization and great locations.

The production values are good, which is a new normal for movies from the cash-rich Bollywood producers.

Another thing that works in Ek Tha Tiger’s favor is that it is a clean movie.

No foul language, crude jokes, gruesomeness or vulgarity – a rarity in an industry hell bent on making the likes of Sunny Leone a mainstream actress.

Ek Tha Tiger is meant primarily for Salman Khan fans.

Others, if you are willing to bang your head against a wall and lose some sense then you may also like it.

However, the fact that the movie takes a careful neutral stance between ISI and RAW (and between Pakistan – India) and it has been released for Eid and Aug 15th tells me that the greedy producers are hungry for money from the Pakistan box office and not satisfied with Indian collections.

It also tells us that for these Bollywood bozos incidents like the horrific 2008 Mumbai Attacks are as trifling as gum sticking to shoe.

For that reason and that reason alone I will not recommend Ek Tha Tiger.

  1. Had they changed ISI to KGB or CIA or FBI, I would have given it a positive recommendation for it is a fairly decent time-pass no-brainer entertainer.

    • Sorry to digress
      “As I’ve said on countless occasions, India is a nation of mostly ball-less pussies with an IQ of less than 75. ” – Wasn’t your dad, grandpa, or great grandpa from India???? Does this statement hold true for them too????

      Don’t take it personally, But I really think when you refer to Salman/Shah rukh Khan fans, please make it clear. Not everyone in India loves these idiots. Don’t insult us!!!

      Oh, by the way, you still never answered a question I raised ages ago.

      If SI can take its Manja Pai (Traditional Indian bag used by Villagers in TN) and go to America in search of a better standard of living…. it is justified. But when millions of Indians go to US to work via H1 B and L1B Visas, they are termed corporate coolies. Why double standards? I am sure SI didn’t become a saint in US?? You justified your US citizenship by saying times were different then. But I don’t understand how that is justified.

      You claim to be proud of US, but forget that behind the glorious history of US lies a very dark secret. 90% of people living in US today never had their origins in US. The natives of the original America (Not US of A) were black/Brown people, who were mercilessly manslaughtered by European white immigrants, who settled here. You built your land on the blood of many people and yet have the audacity to call us chutiyas ;)

      Sorry for the ranting, just couldn’t help it, SI. I am afraid that your freedom of speech comes with the price of putting up with PESTS like me.

      A nation that keeps blah. blah blahing even after being repeatedly buggered by Pakistan is a nation of pussies. Even the new crisis of exodus of Northeast people is being blamed on Pakistan.

      But Indians will ‘condemn’ or ‘issue statements’ but refuse to bomb the Paki dogs and teach them an unforgettable lesson.

      Pakistan’s second greatest achievement is that they’ve accurately judged the essence of the Hindu psyche as cowardice (aka ball-less pussies).

      2. You write: You claim to be proud of US, but forget that behind the glorious history of US lies a very dark secret.

      It’s ironical but ‘civilization’ start on the uncivilized battlefield where people tear at each other, slaughter each other, main each other and the winner takes it all.

      Whether it’s the U.S. or India it’s the same. The European settlers screwed the native Americans first and their descendants buggered the Mexicans later and grabbed California, Arizona etc. In India, the Aryan invaders came and likely pushed the Dravidians further south into southern India and Sri Lanka.

      That said, there’s still some semblance of law and order in U.S. or Europe and fair play. In India, it’s still the law of the jungle or anarchy. Every day there’s a new lawless and disorder crisis. The latest example is the mass exodus of Northeast people from Bangalore, Mumbai and other cities.

      3. Immigrants can come to the U.S. but only after they first serve in the Taliban dominated areas of Afghanistan for a period of two years. ;)

      On a serious note, it makes no sense to lay out the red carpet for immigrants when real unemployment could be as high as 20% here.

      In any case, whether I want it or not the Telugu immigration flood has not abated.

      Every day, I read of a new “Authentic, Hyderabadi Dum Biryani” place opening. ;) Not kidding.

        This link is just an example of the atrocities committed by the European Immigrants on the natives. India may have a history of religious riots, but never has the dubious history of a total population being massacred to extinction.

        If we are chutiyas, then I can safely call you, Americans, Oops SI is an INDIAN AMERICAN (Half-murder) murder ;) Twisted logic, but logic nonetheless :P
        So much for the great US of A…….. America is a glorious country today, it is good to be proud of your adopted motherland, but why spend your valuable time bashing us. If we are truly chutiyas in your eyes, why waste your time writing about chutiyas. I know that you are constantly irritated by this long posts of mine. But these are nothing compared to the irritation I suffer when I read that constantly useless facts of yours on India and Indians……….. Please write something useful.

      • SI Said: “A nation that keeps blah. blah blahing even after being repeatedly buggered by Pakistan is a nation of pussies. Even the new crisis of exodus of Northeast people is being blamed on Pakistan. ”

        Boss, the last time I checked it was the Prime Minister of India, who was in charge of the Army, not the common citizen. Do you think the local Indian will even keep quiet if any Pakistani dares to challenge him in person?????? Perhaps you conveniently forget that the reason that many Hindu-Muslim clashes happen in India because some blithering idiot, like someone we know, utters a totally irresponsible statement and gets his ass handed in return. Well, let’s not delve deeper into this as many bitter truths come out and many people may not like it. Indian people may be tolerant to the hilt, but they are never/and will never be pussies.

        Godhra is a rather unfortunate example, which comes to mind… Laying fire to a Train Compartment anyone?????? While I would never justify the massacre, which occurred later, I would definitely say that a couple of idiots/idiotic groups, who started this in the first place were responsible.

        It’s unfortunate that if we stay quiet, you call us pussies and if we defend, we are called Saffronists???? Dude, you should see people’s courage to believe it. I am sure you were not here in 1993. During the Babri Masjid aftermath, we were living in a place called Ice House, Royappettah, Chennai. I was a hardly 10 then and almost got killed by some Islamic fundamentalist.during the riots. It was due to a timely action by my Dad and My uncle, who risked their lives and fought two dagger holding fundamentalists… Fortunately, peace returned sooner than expected and people realised their follies and apologized for their behavior. Thankfully, very less lives were hurt. If we people were so-called pussies, I wouldn’t even be alive here typing this post.

        If you call tolerance as pussiness, then yes we are pussies. We know from the bottom of our heart, that if required, we will fight till the end of our lives for our rights!!!!!

            Hope you and all my fellow SI readers are doing great.

            Coming back to Salman Khan and his EK THA TIGER (Billi would be better word)Poor Sonny Chatrath, he has got the thankless job of defending this film and Salman Khan and remain sane while dealing with the comments that have literally driven him insane.You cannot defend the undefendable. Unfortunately, this is what Sonny is trying to do now. Meanwhile, SI is happily sitting in his couch with his favorite brand of liquor, some chips, chicken pieces, and enjoying the tamasha :) Am I right SI?

            Coming to Salman Khan, like him or hate him, Salman Khan is still proving to be a cash cow for Bollywood Producers and they don’t seem to mind churning out rubbish action films in which Salman beats up someone in one form of the another. This happens so frequently, that I assume that out of habit, Salman might have even delivered a few kicks to the cameraman and the director during the shooting.

            As long as people keep watching this stuff and critics keep baying for Salman’s blood, this cycle will repeat. What you, Sonny, and SI are doing is bringing Salman negative publicity. But as they say, in Media, Publicity brings attention, whether negative or not. So you folks are indirectly helping Salman rake in millions. Don;t be surprised if this film breaks the Box Office Records again. There are millions of fans in India, who will watch his films even if he bashes up LKG kids. If I were the reviewer, I’d rather spend by 10-12 bucks on some other film because no matter what review you give, people will flock to watch his films anyway.

            In India, to see a movie, I have to shell out almost 200-250 INR per person. This amounts to 120 rupees per ticket and 120 for Popcorn and Cooldrinks (Don’t know whether Satyam Cinemas have increased their already-exorbitant prices).

            Considering the fragile economy, I’d think thrice before going to a Multiplex.

            If I do consider going to a movie, it would surely be after reading many reviews, getting personal opinion from a few friends who watched the movie. By this way, I save money and frustration.

    Hum Aapke Hain Koun, made in 1994, sold about 4 crores of tickets or 40 million tickets in its premium gross time. While Dabangg sold only 25 millions of tickets, which was released in 2010.

    These ticket sales reflect the true story, inspite of population increase, people have not become fools. The problem is that racist, senseless, covetous people bag limelight all the time in India. And, you guys sitting in US and mocking struggling Indians, reflect your pathetic attitude. In fact, you are no lesser than Politicians or Corrupt Officers or Celebrities like SRK, Kamal, Rajini in your attitude towards India.

    Sweetie, there’s something called methodology. Itchy-fingered dickheads ought to look up the word in the dickionary before venting.

    Assuming you’re right on ticket sales of Hum Aapke Hain Koun, in 1994 Indians a.k.a. chutiyas had only three forms of entertainment – Breeding/Screwing, Movies and limited TV.

    In 2012, the entertainment options available to Indians has multiplied manifold – Internet, DVD, Facebook/Orkut/Twitter, online porn, video games, million channels of TV, same day Hollywood releases, T20, IPL, online stealing/streaming of diverse content, YouTube ad infinitum. And I’m not even counting entertaining blogs like SI. ;)

    If Dabanng has sold 25 million tickets in 2010 despite the severe competition from the countless other forms of entertainment I’d argue that it’s a remarkable feat. Better than the 40 million tickets that you claim were sold in 1994 for Hum Aapke Hain Kaun because when you do a comparison you have to take into account all variables in the environment…..Thus after factoring in the explosion in entertainment options movie ticket sales continue to be strong as ever in India.

    I suspect my hypothesis (that movie ticket sales in India are remarkably resilient/growing despite competition from other quarters) will hold good even if you take into account the rise in population.

    Ergo, Indians were Chutiyas in 1994 (Hum Aapke Hain Kaun), they were Chutiyas in 2010 (Dabanng) and Indians continue to be Chutiyas in 2012 (Ek Tha Tiger).

    2. You write: The problem is that racist, senseless, covetous people bag limelight all the time in India. And, you guys sitting in US and mocking struggling Indians, reflect your pathetic attitude.

    True, racist, senseless, covetous people hog the limelight all the time in India.

    Because you people want it only that way…you/your clansmen put that murderous beast Salman Khan on a pedestal…you put that Hindu communal rogue Narendar Modi on the Gaddi (throne/seat of power), you people pander to Muslims by giving them special privileges, you dickheads suck the Christian evangelists dicks and let them turn Northeast into a Christian stronghold through a few morsels of rice, you starve your fellow citizens to death or ‘encounter’ them….ad nauseum.

    If anything you ought to be grateful to the U.S. for the crumbs in the form of software and call center jobs and the foreign exchange remittances.

    Why should we in the U.S. not mock you Chutiyas given that you Basmasuras are ceaselessly making monkeys of yourselves.

    I will concede one thing though – Like a lot of Indians, you’re good at one thing – whining and blaming others for all the problems around you.

    Once upon a time, there lived amongst all you Chutiyas a Mahatma who rightly said: Be the change that you wish to see in the world.
