‘Bharat’ Movie Review: Salman Khan’s versatility is on full display in this epic drama
Directed By: Ali Abbas Zafar
Produced By: Reel Life Productions, Salman Khan Films and T-Series
Bollywood Bubble Rating: 4/5
Salman Khan is back to doing what he knows best. He has yet again delivered a masala entertainer that ticks all the right boxes. With Sunil Grover, Salman makes you laugh. And without him, he makes you cry. Transitioning between several years, ‘Bharat’ keeps you glued to your seats with its grand scale and Salman’s avant-garde performance.
Coming to the plot, Bharat (Salman) is a resident of Pakistan (Mirpur) before the partition. He has to shift to India, and in the process, he loses his father and sister. Fast forward a few years and he finds a job in the circus, but quits it when he finds out that young boys are emulating his stunts and injuring themselves. He then goes to the gulf to extract oil after meeting Kumud Raina (Katrina Kaif). To find out what happens next, you’ll have to watch the movie.
In the course of the movie, Bharat’s daredevilry and his pure heart wins him a lot of admirers and establishes him as a true blue Bollywood hero. A lot of credit must go to Ali Abbas Zafar who knows the pulse of the audience and gives them just the right dose of Entertainment. In ‘Bharat’, he creates contrasting moods – one minute you are laughing out loud and another minute, you are biting your tongue in anticipation. Sunil Grover as Vilayati delivers a winning performance too and you hope that this film will pave the way for his long innings in Bollywood. Katrina Kaif as Kumud Raina/Madam Sir is spot on and perfect for the part.
When it comes to the technical department, ‘Bharat’ doesn’t disappoint at all – from grand sets that recreate the era of partition to the climax scene at the Wagah Border, a lot of credit must go to the person in charge of creating the sets. Ali Abbas has a way (you’ve seen it in the ‘Tiger’ franchisee as well) of mixing great cinematography with kickass music and he does the same in ‘Bharat’.
Last but not the least, the screenplay by Ali Abbas and Varun Sharma expertly manages to adapt a Korean film according to Indian sensibilities. And hats off to them for that.
What are you waiting for? Go watch it with your entire family.
