Tubelight Live Movie Review: Salman Khan's emotional act falls prey to a poor plot

Tubelight live movie review: Will Salman Khan and Kabir Khan, the actor-director duo, who impressed us in the past, weave magic again?

The big day for Salman Khan fans is here. The superstar’s movie Tubelight hit screens today, easing the anxiety of all the fans waiting for it with bated breath. Directed by Kabir Khan, this movie is inspired by Little Boy, but not entirely a remake of it. The movie’s story revolves around two brothers- Laxman and  Bharat, and their undying love for each other. Bharat, played by Sohail Khan, goes off to war and Laxman starts on a journey to find him. The slow-minded Laxman has nothing but his belief to help him in this uncertain journey.

Tubelight has its heart at the place, something which was quite evident from the trailer. As the simpleton who doesn’t understand life much, Salman Khan has left his macho avatar once again after Bajrangi Bhaijaan. During one of the interviews, he said this movie was more emotional than BB and that it was draining for him to play such a character.He also said that since Sohail and himself are real-life brothers, the equation helped him a lot.

Another attraction of the movie is Matin Rey Tangu, the five-year-old boy from Itanagar. As Salman’s friend, he does an impeccable job and his innocence will win you over, something we realised after watching the trailers.

Here are the live updates of the movie:

11: 43 AM: All in all Tubelight is a warm and heartwarming tale that should be watched at least once on the screen.

11: 24 AM: However, Tubelight falls prey to a thin plot and weak storyline. As much as the performances deserve applause, the story turns out to be the villain in this emotional movie.


11: 20 AM: What Tubelight does, is that it brings to on board to an emotional journey.

11: 10: AM: Film is beautiful and it binds the audience till the end, and for this, the credit has to be given to Kabir Khan.
