The film showcases Salman Khan in a never-seen-before avatar!
Bajrangi Bhaijaan, Salman Khan and Eid have all come together this week to give a special treat to all Salman fans out there. For those who thought Bhai would stumble this time, please take a hike. Salman Khan is back in style and he is here to win your hearts!
What’s it about:

The plot of Bajrangi Bhaijaan is no mystery. Salman plays the lead role of Pawan Chaturvedi akaBajrangi bhakt who is goodness personified. He doesn’t lie, won’t cheat even if he’s forced to, has an uncanny habit of bowing down in front of monkeys whom he considers avatars of Lord Hanuman – the list is endless. So when Shahida aka Munni (Harshaali Malhotra) who is mute loses her way from Pakistan and lands up in India, she takes solace in Pawan’s arms. Of course, the agreement isn’t consensual and the first half goes in Pawan trying to figure out who is Munni and what her place of origin is. Kareena Kapoor Khan plays Rasika, Salman’s love interest and the only character wearing color and a bit of glamour. The palette for rest of the film is extremely rugged and dry. Bajrangi Bhaijaan‘s storyline is simple, yet the characters in it go through complex situations. Nawaz takes the tempo to another level in the second half where he plays a bumbling yet smart Pakistani TV reporter. With his addition to the plot, things become more interesting. Even though the climax is predictable and we know where Bajrangi’s story ends, it’s the journey that matters and draws you in with its charm.
What’s hot:
Kabir Khan has shown a side to his craft that will leave everyone stunned. Someone who’s USP has been political action thrillers has come up with a story that is devoid of any gimmicks, special effects, or distractions that have been part of his earlier films. This time he strips the plot to its core basic and lets his characters shine. Be it Bajrangi, Munni or Nawaz, all three characters are so richly written that they stay with you even after the last reel rolls out. Salman has given his career best performance in Bajrangi Bhaijaan. For someone whose every step and move is mimicked and aped, his portrayal of Pawan is his most earnest and sincere effort. There are no glares hanging from his collar, no pelvic thrusts, no double meaning-laden dialogues, just a man with a heart of gold, on a mission. It takes a bit to adjust your senses to this new and improved Salman. But eventually, how much ever you resist, he wins you over with his charm. Nawazuddin is as good as he’s in every film. His comic timing is impeccable and every scene with Salman is going to get seetis from the audience. Harshaali is a terrific find and has a face of an angel. It was so important for Kabir to get the right girl to play the part. She had to be innocence personified and Harshaali is all that and more. Kareena and Salman make an amazing pair and the ease at which they perform their scenes comes from the comfort and the love their audience gives them. Cinematography is breathtaking, be it the opening credit scene with the snow capped Himalayas or the Kashmir pine trees that the camera playfully captures, every frame is lit with love. Kabir has steered clear of the obvious and easy trap of Pakistan bashing. In fact this has to be the first film that shows our neighbor in good light. There are no scenes of chest thumping or trying to drum up that patriotic jingoism. Full marks to Kabir and Salman for taking a fresh approach to the cliche ridden Indo-Pak storyline.
What’s not:
The climax takes a bit of time to play itself out. Bajrangi’s arrest and what follows is a bit of a letdown in terms of the pace of the plot. You can sense the restlessness of the editor wanting to jump to the climax as the film comes to a full circle. Also Pawan’s back story in the first half and his relationship with his dad seemed half baked. We also don’t get enough information on Pawan’s obsession with Bajrangbali. How did he turn into this avid Hanuman bhakt?  Songs are alright, the only track that actually blends into the story is the Adnan Sami qawwali Bhar Do Jholi Meri.
What to do:
Surrender yourself to Bajrangi Bhaijaan and let him win you over with his child-like charm. A must watch for those who complained that Salman doesn’t try anything different, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is the ticket to buy this weekend!

Rating:4.0 out of 5

It has superstar Salman Khan. It has melodrama. It has song and dance. It has a pretty lead actress. It features two topics of discussion that are favourites with the Indian audience: religion and cross-border tension. And it has a cute little thing that, without saying a single word, will make you laugh and cry.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan, as Khan told tabloid! earlier, is just about “love and love and only love”. You will receive an ample dose of every kind from romance to fatherly and brotherly love to the love for one’s country. It is an out-and-out Khan entertainer, such as Dabangg, Ready, Ek Tha Tiger, only this time it has a story which takes the audience at a steady pace through a two and a half hours journey across two countries. And interestingly, there is no item number in the film. It also does not feature the much-hyped Eid song Aaj Party Meri Taraf Se.
Khan plays Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi, your honest-to-the-core local yokel with a tender heart. Chaturvedi happens to be a great devotee of Hanuman or Bajrangi [the monkey deity]. So devout, that he bows down to every stray monkey he sees, and for his kind nature he is lovingly known as Bajrangi. A failure at most things his father shunts him off to Delhi to make something of his life. Here the down-to-earth, very practical Rasika (Kareena Kapoor), the pretty daughter of his father’s friend, falls in love with the kind Bajrangi. When Chaturvedi comes across a little lost girl he makes it his mission to see her safely home. Needless to say he tries all the “right” ways to accomplish this before taking matters into his own hands, even if it means he has to cross the border illegally.
Like most Bollywood films, Kabir Khan’s directorial too turns cheesy, making you laugh or cry depending on what clichéd situation is being dealt with on screen. The film touches several social issues, from religious barriers and patriotism (on both sides of the border) to human trafficking and corruption, but without being too preachy. You can easily make out why the right wing political parties would take offense to certain scenes, but the story tries to maintain a balance. Yet, through the film you will only see the ‘chemistry’ between the ‘lead’ pair of Khan and Harshaali Malhotra and not the issues touched.
Despite good performances all around, it is Malhotra who plays Shahida alias Munni who steals the show. Playing a mute girl, Malhotra emotes through her “truck headlight” eyes. Both Khan and Kapoor have been raving about her, even though she herself has been kept away from the media and is not part of the film’s promotions.
Even though it cannot be predicted what happens on July 20 when the Bombay High Court convenes to hear Khan’s appeal, it’s easy to say that once again it’s going to be a happy Eid for Khan with his debut production. This family entertainer has already been predicted to take the biggest opening in India and with the long weekend in the UAE, the theatres will be full.
Just don’t forget to take that box of tissues with you.

For long, Salman Khan has been giving the Bollywood Box Office super hit blockbuster movies, that are not only loved by the viewers and his fans but contain the true entertainment value.
This time with Bajrangi Bhaijaan, he has outdone himself! This is not just a typical Salman movie that is out an out entertainment, this Kabir Khan directorial has story, emotions, a star performance and most important of all, you will see Salman Khan act like he has never done before.
Cast: Salman Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Harshaali Malhotra
Director: Kabir Khan
Bajrangi Bhaijaan Plot:
The movie starts off with the a thing that every Indian and Pakistani like to do, watch a cricket match between India and Pakistan. The camera then pans to a pregnant woman in Sultanpur village, who decided she will name her child Shahida. Fast-forward six years and we see Shahida (Harshaali Malhotra) travel in Samjota express as her mother takes her to Nizamuddin Hazrat Ali in Delhi to pray for her daughter's condition.
On the way back the girl misses her train which goes to Pakistan. Helpless Shahida comes across Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi (Salman Khan) who enters with the popular Selfie Le Le Re song. Since she can't speak, Salman tries a number of ways to find out about her, during one such juncture he starts to tell about his life and past.
Here comes flashback of Pawan, where his father calls him a zero. After the death of his father, he travels to Delhi to join the akhada of Dayanand since his father wanted him to do so. Here he meets Rasika (Kareena Kapoor) and the two fall in love with each other.
Will Pawan be able to save Shahida from a prostitution racket and reach her home safely? Will he be able to prove his worth to Rasika's father? The answers form the crux of the story.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan truly has a good story that captures the emotion of both religion and cross-boundary tension in a balanced manner.
Bajrangi Bhaijaan Celeb Review: CLASSIC BLOCKBUSTER
Salman Khan really outdoes himself with this role of an innocent and simple man. Kareena Kapoor manages to make her presence felt with a small but pivotal role. Nawazuddin Siddiqui as usual ends up doing a fab job but the true star performer of this movie is Harshaali who makes you laugh, cry and go through a range of emotions without a single dialogue and only expressions.
The chemistry Harshaali and Salman share is truly heart touching and something that can tear you up as well. But the humorous and enjoyable scenes between Nawaz and Salman are not to be missed as well.
Kabir Khan has brought us a good movie with the great story, the right range of emotions and amazing picturization, the only places that some might not like are the cheesy, over the board scenes that all may not enjoy as much. The script written by K.V. Vijayendra Prasad is flawless and it is this script that makes Bajrangi Bhaijaan the outstanding movie it is.
While the first half is simple, Salman makes it rather enjoyable. It is the second half that contains all the hilarious comedy and gets super entertaining. In simple words, it is a must watch movie! Don't miss!

Bajrangi Bhaijaan

Rating: 4.5/5 |

There are somethings that are just meant to be together. Over a period of time, they not just become synonymous with each other but also complement each other to the fullest. Amongst the many examples for this, one such combination is the release of a Salman Khan film during the auspicious occasion of Eid. Like almost every year, this year too, Salman Khan has gifted his fans their 'Eidi' in the form of BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN. Will this film be worth the wait and live up to its gigantic expectations, let's analyze.

The film starts off with a Pakistani village household cheering for Pakistan while watching its nail biting crucial cricket match with India on television. Inspired by the ace Pakistani cricketer Shahid Afridi, a to be mother from the household names her daughter as Shahida (Harshaali Malhotra). The girl despite being beautiful and expressive does not speak a word, which worries her parents day after day. On the advice of an elderly person in the family, Shahida's mother decides to take Shahida to a wish-fulfilling holy dargah in Delhi, India. On their way back to Pakistan, their train halts due to a technical failure. That's when the innocent and animal loving Shahida sees a helpless lamb fallen in a pit. She gets down from the train and just when she rescues the lamb, the train starts moving, thus leaving her behind in an unknown country all alone. She quickly boards the next immediate train and reaches Delhi. It is here when she meets the extremely God fearing and a devout Hanuman bhakth Pavan Kumar Chaturvedi aka Bajrangi (Salman Khan). With the intention of helping the little girl who cannot talk, Bajrangi takes her home, only to be ridiculed by his family members. The only person who stands by him is his to-be-wife Rasika (Kareena Kapoor). Pavan and Rasika try their level best to 'decode' the identity of the child by dropping names of almost all the Indian states, but in vain. Havoc strikes their family household when they discover that Munni (aka Shahida) not only eats meat, but is also a Muslim and above all… a Pakistani! That's when Pavan decides to brave all the odds (visa issues, passport problems etc). Despite all the odds, when Bajrangi manages to cross the Indo-Pak border, but gets caught by the Pakistan police, who label him off as an Indian spy. That's when Bajrangi encounters a freelance news reporter Chaand Nawab (Nawazuddin Siddiqui), who shoots the whole Pavan-Munni 'adventures' on his handycam, hoping this will be his big ticket to name and fame as a journalist. However, as he discovers their Pavan's good intentions, he too joins the duo in their journey and helps them out. Does Chaand Nawab manage to 'encash' on the Pavan-Munni story in order to be taken seriously as a journalist, does Pavan succeed in uniting Munni with her parents, does the ever-truthful Pavan manage to prove his innocence of him not being a spy before the Pakistani police and how does the simpleton Bajrangi gets transformed into 'Bajrangi Bhaijaan' is what forms the rest of the story.

First things first. Director Kabir Khan captures the attention of the viewers right from first shot of this character driven film. The impeccable camaraderie between him and his lead star Salman Khan was seen in their last blockbuster film EK THA TIGER. This time round, the camaraderie has grown by leaps and bounds, which can be seen in this film. For all those who have seen Kabir Khan's work in thriller and action films like KABUL EXPRESS, NEW YORK and EK THA TIGER will be in for a huge surprise when they see BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN. He has very sensibly handled the emotional scenes, without going overboard. While the tempo of the film is set in the first ten minutes, it is very rare that any film has ever started on such an emotional high. Amongst the many Indo-Pak films that have been made in the past, BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN stands out amongst all of them because this film stays away from the usual jingoism and preachiness. Kabir Khan adds magic to Salman Khan's stardom with this film. Needless to say that, the one person who deserves to be credited for that the overall outcome of the film is Kabir Khan, who also does a great job with the film's dialogue, along with Kausar Munir. The film's storywriter (V. Vijayendra Prasad) deserves applauses galore for having come up with such a fresh story that has the right mix of patriotism, love, emotions and brotherhood.

As far as the performances are concerned, absolutely no prizes for guessing that the film belongs to the one and only 'Bhaijaan' Salman Khan, who makes no mistakes in delivering an outstanding performance in this film. His innocence is unmistakably charming. And it is this innocence that unfailingly captures melts and ultimately wins over the audiences' hearts. Do not miss his recitation of Hanuman Chaalisa, his interaction and his conversation with the child actor Harshaali. The scenes that catch your attention are the first ten minutes of the film, the brothel scene, the revelation of Munni's actual identity revelation and the fitting climax. Looking at this film, one can easily say that they don't call him a 'Bhaijaan' for nothing! Unlike his previous film's, this film is totally devoid of his onscreen histrionics, yet, manages to embed its stamp in your hearts. Salman never gets out of his character and this is his performance-oriented film after a long time. Kareena Kapoor Khan, on the other hand, stands like a rock, offering her onscreen hero Salman Khan and the film, all the support. Whatever the screen space that she has, she makes the most out of it and leaves a lasting impression with her endearing performance in the film. Now, let's talk about the 'find' of BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN aka Harshaali Malhotra, who is a sheer delight to watch in every frame that she is in. Even though this is her first film (her modelling assignments notwithstanding), Harshaali comes across as a thorough professional in front of the camera. The moment the camera is on her, she simply lights up the screen with her innocence, her smile and her superlative performance in the film. With BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN, Harshaali Malhotra has definitely set the bar high for child actors. Extracting the right emotions and expressions from child actors can be quite a task. That's why Kabir Khan deserves to be applauded for extracting an exceptional performance from Harshaali Malhotra, with the equal amount of ease with which he got it from his lead actors. Amongst them all, how can one forget the sheer greatness of the phenomenal actor Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who wins you all over with his outstanding performance as a Pakistani news reporter! The sincerity with which he approaches his role is something that needs to be seen in order to be believed. The other veteran actors like Om Puri and Sharat Saxena do their bit for the film to make it a memorable one. On the other hand, Najeem Khan, Ali Quli Mirza, and Adnan Sami (in a special cameo) are good in supporting roles.

If it's a Salman Khan movie, then, songs and music become very crucial. BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN's music (Pritam Chakraborty) definitely works by all means, majorly because it has all the elements that are required of a typical 'Salman Khan film'. Music gels extremely well with the film and also the flow of the film. The film already boats of a chartbuster track in the form of 'Selfie'. The other tracks like 'Tu Jo Mila' and Adnan Sami's devotional track 'Bhar Do Jholi' does leave the required effect on the listeners. On the other hand, the film's background music (Julius Packiam) keeps the tempo of the film going extremely well. The film's screenplay (Kabir Khan, V. Vijayendra Prasad, Parveez Shaikh, Asad Hussain) is tight and engaging. The film's cinematography (Aseem Mishra) is top rate as it presents the serene breath taking view of Kashmir like never before. Rameshwar S. Bhagat has done a splendid job in the film's razor sharp editing.

On the whole, BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN is a not to be missed 'Eid' treat from Salman Khan and Kabir Khan. The film is a surefire hit and has got 'B-L-O-C-K-B-U-S-T-E-R' written all over it. This film easily qualifies to be Salman Khan's BEST movie till date, featuring his career's best performance. The film wins you over completely. Do not skip.

About film: The film revolves around a young speech-impaired girl from Pakistan who finds herself lost in India with no way to head back over the border to her home. An Indian man (Salman Khan) undertakes the task to get her back to her home and reunite her with her family.

Review: Like every Eid, Salman Khan has hit a jackpot this year too with a blockbuster. The best thing about the film is when Salman is giving out a secular mesage you have no choice but to accept it for he's one in real life too. Remember his family's multi-religious ethnicity? He continue to woo the audience the way he has been doing since Dabangg. But for once he's not the loud salman but a sober one trying his best to help out a child from Pakistan.

Oh Yeah then his style-No beating Salman Khan. When he portrays himself as a Hanuman Bhakt, he's so convincing.

Kareena Kapoor Khan complements Salman in the movie and they look so made for each other in the movie. The best part about the movie is eventhough it's all about religious tolerance and cross border love, it's not preachy.

Verdict: Go Watch it!

Rating: 3.5/5

Story: Devout Bajrangi meets a speech-impaired child in India, separated from her family - in Pakistan. Can Bajrangi ensure she gets home safely - and he does too?

Review: So, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is Salman Khan's most daring film where Salman presents a beautiful performance - but allows the story to be the real dabangg. Pawan (Salman) aka 'Bajrangi' is a devout Shri Hanuman bhakt who meets a speech-impaired child (Harshaali) wandering alone, hungry and silent. Bajrangi decides to help the child, whom he calls Munni, return to her family - which is in Pakistan.Facing borders and biases, lacking a visa, called a spy, can Bajrangi get Munni home - and return to India himself?

With Bajrangi, you meet a whole new Salman - this is not the shirt-ripping, ab-flaunting, dialogue-maro-ing Khan but a simple, innocent and honest man, who fails, gets tricked and beaten up - but never shaken from his purpose. With gentleness and no gimmicks, Salman puts on a polished, luminous performance - and is matched by little Harshaali, whose vulnerability and warmth are amazing.

Add a crackling Nawazuddin, as small-time Pakistani journalist Chand Nawab, hungry for 'Bariking News' but moved beyond TRPs by Bajrangi's quest, and the screen's alight with lovely acting, with a hilarious 'Begum', a child who glows and wanes like the sun, humans who treasure humanity beyond barbed wire and border guards.

Alongside memorable performances (Om Puri chuckles through a Maulvi cameo while Sharat Saxena wrestles with prejudice as Bajrangi's potential father-in-law), the story features gentle comedy - Bajrangi's chats with Pakistan's border security are hilarious - and soulful qawallis. Its beautiful visuals travel unobtrusively from mohallas to mountain peaks, across priceless moments including Bajrangi's panic-struck stammering to pretty fiance Rasika (Kareena), "Munni, woh, woh - woh hai!"

The plot could be tighter, sagging slightly until Nawaz's lively entry. However, you see a director evolve - Kabir Khan's fascination with borders shows again, but while his Ek Tha Tiger was a glamorous cosmopolitan cocktail, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a pure South Asian jalebi, rounded, warm, simple and sweet. Kabir captures the tension of India-Pakistan without negativity and with soft charm, skillfully using a superstar as an actor, a child artist as a superstar and a border as a muse that opens up the world.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan emphasizes how, amidst visas and wars, there are also angels about who don't see doors. They see homes, lives and children - and sometimes, children see angels too.
