Ek Tha Tiger…Action Packed Love Story… Rightly to say the promotion of Ek Tha Tiger started from SPIDERMAN, BATMAN and finally “”””SALMAN”””” Salman Khan is an individual that invites admiration and applause in any kind of film format or movie genre.

Ek Tha Tiger looked very promising prior to its release and the film does entertain you to an extent.

Ek Tha Tiger


















The synopsis of the movie, SALMAN is Tiger, a super-heroic RAW agent who sprints, shoots and crunches bones without a glimmer of worry or sweat. Tiger is now entrusted with the task of collecting external intelligence by spying on a Trinity College Professor, who has apparently been approached by the ISI for sharing missile technology secrets. And that is where he ends up meeting his ladylove (Zoya) Katrina Kaif, the professor’s residence caretaker. Tiger introduces himself as Manish Chandra, a writer, and seeks her help in getting an appointment with the professor. And the best part is though Tiger knows that he is on a mission and he dare not fall in love, he loses his heart to Zoya, dance instructor, invites Tiger for a show and here is where you would find a twist in the story…

I don’t want to reveal the plot but the love story has a never ending action. The journey continues from Dublin to Istanbul to Havana and so on…It’s such a pleasure to see a Hindi film heroine not playing a damsel in distress that is Zoya she is also an active performer as Tiger. The action, is spectacular. There are chases on terraces, runaway trams and lots of smashed cars. It does tend to go on and on…Specially the bike ride of Salman at the Climax is just spectacular and a bit foolish too…you could just keep your heads aside and enjoy the macho show…

And mostly importantly, though Salman and Katrina deny being in a relationship in real life, their chemistry onscreen looks every bit convincing. And the duo is an absolute delight to the eyes!

Overall to say you can watch this movie definitely if you are a die-hard fan of both the stars…Overall to rate the movie, I would give it 3 out of 5.

The Movie Total Recall was a tough assignment for the Director Len Wiseman since it was a remake of one of the best films ever made in the last decade and of course you can’t forget Mr. Arnold Schwarzenegger in the movie. Science fiction movies are at peak nowadays and they do a good job on the box office in the 21st Century.

The Director of the movie Len Wiseman has done a great job along with Colin Farrell, Jessica Biel, Kate Beckinsale and Bryan Cranston. Len has made many great movies in the past and this could be said as this Total Recall is not all bad, though it’s far from good. Since it’s a remake of an epic movie i.e. in 1990 Paul Verhoeven had directed the film Total Recall, and although this new remake is less of a mind-bender, it largely benefits from featuring Colin Farrell in the role played by Arnold Schwarzenegger 22 years ago.

The Total Recall Movie

The story of the movie is as same as the Total Recall played 22years ago…

A factory worker named Douglas Quaid played by Colin Farrell is having a recurring dream about being chased and helping a woman escape and getting shot. He doesn’t know the woman is – it’s not his wife, yet he keeps having this dream over and over again. He tells his wife about it, but, of course, he doesn’t mention this other woman.

The world, in which the United Federation of Britain (UFB) is connected to the “Colony,” in other words Australia, by means of a long tunnel of Gravity that enables the colonized worker class to commute to the motherland on the other side of the planet every morning.

The Rekall is the main part of the film, Rekall creates memories for its clients. Quaid has an urge to live the life of a secret agent. But then the special ops arrives and spoils the party.This question won’t be answered until halfway through the film, though there is a nagging feeling we are being taken for a ride. Quaid’s wife, Lori, played by Kate Beckinsale, starts to aggressively pursue him once he reveals he has gone to Rekall.

The main character of the film that is Farrell’s Quaid, certainly in good physical shape, which thus allows him to be much more quick-footed in the many action scenes. The action sequences are on of the key elements of the movie.

Overall the film can be watched only if you were a fan of Arnorld and wanted to know whether the legacy has been carried or not. But apart from that just having fun out for two hours and keeping your mind aside and watching the movie is something that can be done… Overall from my end I would rate this movie 2.5 out of 5 just because of its action sequences.
