Tubelight Review

Tubelight review from other sources

BollywoodHungama 3/5

On the whole, TUBELIGHT come across as a colossal disappointment as it fails to engross the audiences due to its wafer thin plot. At the Box-Office, the movie will take a jumpstart due to Salman Khan’s star power and accelerate over the weekend and the extended weekend [due to the Eid festivities], post which, the business will see a sizeable drop.

Pritam’s Naach Meri Jaan and Sajan Radio are magical, as is Shah Rukh Khan’s cameo as magician, Go-Go Pasha. Aseem Mishra’s camera work is largely-breathtaking. When it comes to performances--Salman laughs and cries unselfconsciously, unraveling the lesser-seen side of his macho image. He cannot move mountains with his performance but he manages to keep the faith alive. Sohail is sincere. Zhu Zhu shows spunk and young Matin entertains. And, Om Puri reminds you of the mettle unsung heroes are made of.

NDTV 1/5

Zeeshan, in fact, is particularly good as a knock-kneed meanie, but there's only that much he is allowed to do, as this film - and everyone in it - constantly makes way. It's the Salman Khan show, and here he is bobbing his head and widening his eyes, with all the expressiveness of a hurriedly drawn thumb-puppet. Faith may indeed move mountains. It's a taller ask to make the mountain act.

The theology of TUBELIGHT is vast like an ocean but Kabir Khan has so cloyingly handled the Yakeen (faith) factor that it turns boringly 'Yuck'in. Still we go with 2 stars in good 'faith' believing that the gigantic star power of Salman Khan can pull off anything. Kya aap ko Yakeen hai.. ?

There's a dialogue in the film which goes like- "Yakeen ek tubelight ki tarah hota hai...der se jalta hai...lekin jab jalta hai, toh full light kar deta hai." The same holds true for Salman Khan's Eid release Tubelight. It takes its own sweet time to flicker but then barely lasts to shine bright!

Tubelight has a high dosage of emotions with rich visuals and also a decent content. But, the film lacks engagement. Well, full credit for the attempt but that's not enough from Salman Khan.
