Some of the action is good, although the lead actor looks a little too bulky at times to be a secret agent.

Ek Tha Tiger is an entertaining movie but relies on mediocre performances, great action, great songs and good visuals to hide it's overused story. To be clear, this movie has almost the same story as Mr. & Mrs. Smith, even if you put that aside this movie has action, good visuals and great songs to entertain you.

Ek Tha Tiger is an Indian action spy film starring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in the two main roles. It's marketed on the posters and images of the movie as if it's some kind of full throttle action movie but in truth although containing some fighting and shootouts, it's mostly a weird kind of Rom-Com movie. Of course Bollywood rarely lacks romance and this is the same, it does try to thrill and the ending does add a little boost to the story but it's the beginning that truly drags this down and stops it from being near okay. The choreography is nicely done when it is shown and the dancing and singing is lacking in true style but is still pretty nicely taken care of. The main problem is with the story itself and the over dramatic or just plain stupid scenes that really make this not worthwhile.

Listen Salman Khan isn't half bad in this but he never truly gets into the role, the action scenes he more than takes care of and he excels mostly at the end, I just don't think he is overly great here in serious dialogue. Katrina Kaif is well cast as Zoya, a lady who reveals her back story the more the story goes on but really she is no different here to a lot of similar leading ladies roles seen elsewhere in Bollywood and fails to make an impact. The cast is kind of well used but never truly that great, it is better when the film focuses more on Salman Khan's character Tiger as the rest of the cast feel a little pointless and the goons placed around the movie are pretty dispensable.

Kabir Khan the director and co-writer had never really made an action movie before doing this so it can't be expected for him to get it spot on; he does however keep it at least fast paced although it can be a little implausible at times. The story is a little stupid in truth and the beginning is not handled well in the script but also in the direction and even in the background music, it can feel as if this is two films split into two and then wrongly put together. The choreography of the dancing as mentioned can be nice but can also be too random, I have always felt that in Bollywood movies the singing and dancing has to be positioned just right for it to work within the plot, this I feel does not time it all right.

So really overall a pretty lame movie but one that can the slightest bit enjoyed if you ignore the silly parts of it. It also has some really nice locations and it isn't filmed that badly, hey even the effects used aren't used overly that much and you don't notice them too much so it's not annoying in that way. Salman Khan can probably take some positives from this as maybe can Kaif but truly this could have been done better, but to be fair I just think the whole story just never worked.

Compared to the very few Bollywood Spy films, this is undoubtedly one of the best spy movies.

Salman, Katrina and a decent script = 200 crores. That is Bollywood math for you.

Watched first day first show of 'Ek Tha Tiger' :) One of the best opening scenes (before this saw such magic in Pukar, starring Anil Kapoor and Madhuri Dixit), cool fight sequences, Katrina Kaif's action scenes are a pleasant surprise, kinda OK romantic scenes - in fact boring at times, no passion between the leading actors which completely disagrees with the storyline. Salman Khan has immense star power.

I'm not going to lie I watch Bollywood films because of the women. And my favorite Bollywood actress is Katrina Kaif. So I watched Ek Tha Tiger. And if you're a fan of Bollywood I recommend this one. Just leave logic at the door.

just an average spy thriller which sucks in its second half

Sometimes you just gotta let go and enjoy a good, fun movie. Khan is your typical action hero doing typical action here stuff, he carries the movie. Katrina Kaif handles her action and music scenes well but her acting is phoned in.Comedy and music transcend cultural barriers for non- Indian audiences. If you like Bond you'll love Tiger. Just a fun ride.

Unless it continues, I did not like the ending.

Excellent clean cut action sequences, great songs and a solid performance by Salman Khan make this a good movie. The romance lacked a little ooomph though.
April 25, 2013
Again.... Nice work by Salman & Katrina. They make a nice couple... Songs were good aswell

As always, cheap action and a copied story of the movie, in titled "In Time".

EK THA TIGER is a high-octane thriller that works big time. ETT has dazzling action, stunning international locales and stylish execution. Most importantly, it has Salman Khan, the trump card of this enterprise. There's no denying that Salman's charisma has resulted in a mind-blowing, astounding, never-seen-before start at the ticket window, but the film's content will sustain it thereafter. This is, without doubt, Salman's best. A Paisa-Wasool Movie ;)
