Tiger Zinda Hai Review
Salman Khan fans went into a tizzy ever since the film was announced. The reasons were many: Some were desperately waiting for the onscreen union of ex-flames Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif, while others had hopes pinned on Salman’s high-octane action scenes. Several behind the scene videos- whether it’s Salman battling a wolf or Katrina prepping up for action sequences- have been doing the rounds of social media and making the fans only more curious. All that comes to a conclusion as the film hits the theatres today.
The movie, directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, is the second installment of the Tiger franchise after the 2012 film ‘Eh Tha Tiger’. Both Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif reprise their roles of intelligence agents- Tiger and Zoya. While Tiger is an Indian agent, Zoya happens to be a Pakistani spy.
As depicted in the trailer, the film is based on a real-life incident wherein 46 nurses were held hostage by ISIS in Iraq in 2014. The film has been shot across various destinations including Austria, Greece, Morocco, Abu Dhabi and India and if the reports are to be believed, the entire cast and crew have really pushed themselves for the respective parts.
The change of director has done well for the film as Tiger Zinda Hai seems more stylish than the original Ek Tha Tiger (2012). The first film was directed by Kabir Khan while Ali Abbas Zafar (Sultan) is at the helm this time.
Salman’s last big-screen outing Tubelight failed miserably at the box office, so much so that the actor reportedly had to compensate for the loss. But it’ll be interesting to see how much money does the Christmas-release rake in.
All we have to see this time is, will Salman Khan’s Tiger return with a roar? Will Tiger and Zoya’s onscreen chemistry set the temperature high? Will the plot be intriguing enough to justify the genre of spy-thriller? Will Salman’s action sequence be impressive enough? Will Ali Abbas Zafar’s directorial break box office records and emerge as the highest grosser of 2017?

4. For Sumit Kadel, a film trade analyst gave the movie a two star.
#TigerZindaHai – Film tried to deliver good message through the film but it falls flat.. Raw-ISI working together looks unrealistic. Film is too long & Boring . Xmas & New year weekend will prove to be savior for #TZH at the box office. Rating- ⭐️⭐️
