Director: Sajid Nadiadwala

Kick is a remake of a south Indian movie with same name, but why is it bigger than usual south Indian films? The answer is Salman Khan. To be frank I am not a big Salman fan but still I went to see the biggest film of the year so far and I am glad I did.

Kick is a story about Devi Lal Singh aka Devil (Salman Khan), who is basically a guy who does everything in life because he wants to feel kick and what is kick? For that you have to see the movie. Salman plays a good guy and also a baddie and you will root for both his characters. Basically he plays a robin hood who steals from the rich bad people and gives the money to poor children, and for every baddie there is a good cop who is chasing him, and here it is Randeep Hooda who plays the role of a police officer brilliantly his sole mission is to catch devil.

The story of Shaina Mehra is narrated by the beautiful Jacqueline Farnandez, who is devil’s love interest and what happens between them sets the whole story in motion. She plays her part perfectly and also gets a good role and she and Salman have a terrific chemistry. And there is also Nawazuddin Siddiqui who plays the negative role and he is in his full form, his vicious laughter and his intense looks will make you feel uncomfortable and scared.

But no matter what they do no one can overcome Salman Khan. He looks totally awesome (in spite of his age, which is 48). He has a devils charm and plays the part to perfection plus he gets the dialogues which only he can carry off. Special mention to Rajat Arora who has wrote all dialogues and the screenplay. He has done fabulous job. Dialogues are not over the top but they come at the right point in the film.

And the film is totally rich in locations and styling. All actors look charming specially the three leads (Salman, Randeep and Jacqueline). The stunts have a little south Indian touch.

What’s Good?

Direction, performance, music and action.

What’s Bad?

Loose ends, too much social drama.


It took me two days to get a ticket of Kick and I am not at all disappointed and nor will you. I am going for 3.5 Bits out of 5 for Sajid Nadiadwala’s debut film Kick. Watch it and have fun and scream your lungs out and whistle for devil.
