Salman Khan much awaited movie Tubelight review

 STORY : Laxman Singh Bisht (Salman Khan) is nick named tube light by his neighbours because he is feeble-minded. Despite being special, Laxman lives by one life-lesson; keep your faith alive and you can do almost anything, even stop a war.

REVIEW : At the outset, one must warn people that Tubelight is a departure from your regular Salman Khan mass entertainers. Here Bollywood’s darling-star plays a child-man who doesn’t take off his shirt or flex his biceps. So the audience going in for this one, must first invest belief (or should that be disbelief?) in this age of innocence offering from Kabir Khan, whose past outings Ek Tha Tiger and Bajrangi Bhaijaan were more commercially-wired.

The film begins with lovely music, and a look into Laxman’s life. We are told why he is called Tubelight. Let me tell you at the onset that this introduction is nothing like we’ve seen in Salman’s earlier films. The whole vibe is different. It’s like a crash course on Laxman’s childhood, and the innocence continues.

We are immediately thrown into the camaraderie shared between Laxman and Bharat (Sohail Khan). This is possibly a basis being established for the departure we are going to see soon (Bharat will join the army).

There’s a heart-warming speech about futility of war that Laxman helms, where he talks about how he wishes all this violence stops.
