One Line Review: Story of a simpleton who decides to bring his brother back from the Indo-Sino war with just his faith at his disposal.
Positive Points: Salman Khan’s endearing performance is the highlight of the film. You will fall in love with the innocence of the child artist Matin Rey Tangu, despite the fact that you fail to understand some of his dialogues because of his broken Hindi.
Warning: If you are a fan of Salman Khan then sorry you are at the wrong place as you won't 'believe' in what is being said over here. Rest all are requested to kindly continue and we leave it up to you whether you want to believe it or not.Believe it or not! - This TV series kept on haunting me when the box office Sultan - Salman Khan tried to move a mountain with that 'Yakeen' (Faith/believe) in this film and I was flabbergasted by the well intentioned but completely manipulative imagination to move the audience going shockingly wrong on the misguided path turning this 'Yakeen' to a 'yuck' in sort of an experience.

Faith can move mountains. Its an old world notion that people in the modern world tend to overlook as romanticism. But truth is, give a human being enough inspiration and even miracles can seem ordinary. That's the thought Kabir Khan's Tubelight tries to convey. But like its title's allegory it keeps flashing and stuttering till in the end it settles down with a soft glow. It's not a bad film, but when you consider the benchmarks of Kabir Khan and Salman Khan (Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan) this does seem a bit low on radiance.More »
Kabir Khan strongly believes that solemnity exists only in the mountains -- like in Bajrangi Bhaijaan, he begins his latest picture with an earnest shot of the mountains.The rhythms of the shots are eerily alike, as we are reminded: 'This is solemnity; this is life; up here in the mountains.'And we accept the message with grace even as the mountains stare back at us suspiciously: 'What's with these people?'Tubelight, Kabir Khan's latest, is a film that germinates in the same gut as Bajrangi Bhaijaan -- you constantly get the feeling that this is a product trying hard to replicate the 'success factors' of that one.More »
