Bajrangi Bhaijaan - Sense + Salman

Before I start, let me tell you that this review is not for Bhai fans.
So here it goes...

It's not like Salman hasn't done movies that have sense and logic but it's also not like all his movies have sense and logic. Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a bit of both sense & logic (a bit more because it's a Kabir Khan film) and nonsense & no logic.
Let's talk about acting first.
Harshaali Malhotra's character was like "Bin Kahe Bahut Kuch Keh Gaya". Even without the dialogues her character spoke so much about the scenes and about her capabilities as a child actor. She deserves all the attention. Nawazuddin Siddiqui once again proves why he is what he is today. Brilliant acting as always. Kareena Kapoor doesn't have much screen time but isn't boring when she is on screen. Salman Khan - for many will be a surprise package but not for those who have watched Jai Ho. He's definitely improved, changed, and that's visible clearly.
Now on to the dialogues, lyrics, and story.
I'm not going to list all the names of people because that'll make this post too long but everyone associated with the departments mentioned above have done the best they could have to keep the dialogues, lyrics, and story somewhat relevant to today's times.
Now on to Direction.
Kabir Khan yet again delivers a different kind of film with Salman Khan. Nicely shot at wonderful locations in Rajasthan and Kashmir.
I know there are many who don't like Salman and his films and this film will not change your perception about him on a great scale. But I suggest you watch the film for the world we can never have because of politics and politicians. And also watch it for Harshaali Malhotra who definitely is the star of the movie. I liked Bajrangi Bhaijaan and yes I have become a bit more of a Salman fan now.
