Tiger Zinda Hai- Movie Review

After its blockbuster business and positive reviews back in 2012, Yash Raj Films is back with its second installment of its spy thriller.



This time Tiger (Salman Khan) is living its dream life with his wife Zoya (Katrina Kaif) and Junior Tiger (Sartaaz Kakkar). On the other hand there are nurses from India and Pakistan who are abducted by terrorist group ISC, which is based on the true incident. The mission is than handed over to Tiger by Shenoy (Girish Karnad) who was also the ex-boss of Tiger. How will RAW and ISI work on the same goal of saving their respective nationality nurses on the land which has no rules and no regulations ? This is the story of Tiger Zinda Hai.


The main hero of this movie is the action and background score along with a great supporting cast. The casting director has picked the perfect people who have helm the perfect role. There is a surprise element and character in the movie which provides a breather in terms of humor and also taking a jibe on Tiger and its crew, disclosing about the character and the element of the movie will be a spoiler so it won’t be disclosed in the review.


Director of the movie, Ali Abbas Zafar has given a new direction to this franchise as he has shown maturity in terms of lifting the movie to its core. However, director could have done more justice to the movie if he would have capitalized more on Salman Khan’s dry humor which sometimes fails to leave a impact. Action director Tom Struthers, the men is well known because of his work in movies like The Dark Knight Rises and X-Men: First Class. The stunt department has synced in well with Indian cast and crew, more importantly with Indian genre of action movies. The dialogues which focuses sometimes on the small elements whether it is cross-border lovers or else the national face of India and Pakistan, they lightens the tone adding more humor element in the movie.

I won’t deny the fact that this is for me one of the best Katrina Kaif’s performance so far. The action scenes, chemistry and also dialogue delivery is just perfect.




This movie brings mandatory elements of love and peace across the border and also gives you a glimpse of what would happen if the Indian counterparts and Pakistan counterparts would work together.

Overall, the second installment of Tiger’s spy world will work for you, if you like typical Indian movies but with a twist this time of greater action and some fantastic locations. Now, I am waiting for the next part (if at all its on cart) as there is a hint given in the end by the Vishal Dadlani croons,  “Listen close what I gotta say.”


I am going with A+
