Salman Khan dazzles in rollicking -- and romantic -- Indian action thriller.
Result boasts some excellent action sequences, most performed by megastar Salman Khan, and indeed is generally more effective in fight scenes than in hearts-and-flowers mode.
Tiger and Zoya both make good kung fu street fighters, but as spies they're unconvincing, and as lovers they're cookie-cutter bland.
The 46-year-old Salman Khan is more Sean Connery than Daniel Craig when it comes to playing a spy hero and it's become less plausible to take him seriously as an action star.
Maybe no one really sees anything in a Bhai film. It is just a mandatory event to be compulsorily thrilled by.
I had fun while it lasted.
This film packs enough Sallu and Kat charisma to make it worth the price of its ticket.
Ek Tha Tiger is a gripping action film with the world of espionage as a backdrop and romance at its core.
Ek Tha Tiger's lack of logic and script loopholes prove inconsequential to enjoying the film.
Leaving the plot open for a sequel, just in case Salman's fans demand one; ETT ends with telling you how Tiger's file went missing because, once this super-spy decided to go off the radar, no intelligence agency could actually track him down.
Of course it's played out like a comic book but if you're willing to suspend disbelief there's fun to be had.
The leads lack the kind of chemistry that would have fully engaged audiences, and the director's reliance upon Khan's straight-to-camera smouldering and Kaif's doe-eyed longing becomes tiresome.
Able direction. Shoestring story. Mixed-bag script devoid of much logic. Sallu throwing around his charisma. Kats showing some expressions here and there but generally is hammy as always, despite looking like a million bucks, as always. Fantastic supporting turns by Girish Karnad and Ranvir Shorey. Exotic locales, as always in a yrf film. First Indian film shot in Cuba, I guess. Bourne-ish action, mostly well executed, though stunt doubles aren't that difficult to spot. Decent music. Audience going mad at the drop of a hat. Yeah, I guess that sums it up.
