Movie Review: Bajrangi Bhaijaan

If you are a Salman Khan fan, you don't even need a review. But be advised - BB isn't a typical Sallu movie. There is no taking off the shirt.

But yes, Sallu does perform some amazingly complicated dance moves in Selfie Lele Re :) He does bash up some baddies. And he does put in a smashing performance, perhaps the best of his career.

However, the innocent Harshaali Malhotra absolutely steals your heart with a stupendous performance as the lost 6 year old girl from Pakistan who Bajrangi tries hard to reunite with her parents across the border. Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays another wonderful role, and almost runs away with all the credit. Kareena is wasted in her cameo, but when you have the beautiful Kashmiri valleys and guzzling streams as a backdrop for so long, who needs any more eye candy?

A wonderful message of love and harmony across borders, cultures and religions, BB is a wonderful option this Eid. If you can get tickets, that is!
