{2.5/5} Tubelight Full Movie Review UAE : The movie stretches too much . Forces You To Cry

The one word that's used nearly in every other line in the movie is 'yakeen.'

A man child. Or a child-like man. Salman Khan has aced both and has had a practice of playing one or the other sort of male. His latest alter ego takes man's aspect several notches higher. Salman's character Laxman Singh Bisht is called 'tubelight.' Why? Straightforward. It flickers. It requires time to change on. And then, just, there is light.

We go in looking for a plot designed to propel him, and us because it is Salman. And because it is Kabir Khan, who has got the capacity and who has given among his movies, Bajrangi Bhaijaan to the star, we aspire for the magical to function.

However, this time around, where the manager and the star set their sights on China, it's not to be. Tubelight presents Salman in full Forrest Gump mode. Laxman, the golden-hearted simpleton, not just enjoys his brother Bharat (Sohail Khan), he also teaches us to love our neighbors, during peace or strife. It matters not only where the borders are; love conquers all.

The message is, particularly apt that is ideal for all these times. The messenger is much from. The effort, on the component of Salman, to come slow-witted off, shows in each frame. It is on the surface, and all feels assembled, with no nuance. Rather than Hindi-Chini Bhai Bhai, it is more like Hindi-Chini.

Which is a pity because Kabir pulled a most amusing 'Aman ki Asha' with Pakistan. At Tubelight, he goes back 55 years (it's set in the backdrop of the 62 war): Bharat enrolls from the military, goes away to fight, and then vanishes, leaving Laxman devastated. Of course, everything is their fault.

Done better, the two Khans (three actually, since Sohail has a substantial share of the display in addition to a manufacturing credit) could possess said something quite significant about racism and widespread discrimination against north-easterners, known as 'chinkies,' and other humiliating names. Yes, they are as Indian as anyone else. But Tubelight squanders that chance.

Some of the more likable moments of the film are shared between the boy, who's completely edible and Laxman, and also an absolute natural. It features Zeeshan Ayyub as a neighborhood hothead, and the late Om Puri, as a father-figure into the brothers. And Sohail reprises his recognizable act like the caring 'Bhai.'

But when the act is not convincing, the film becomes like the title: mainly flicker with a tiny late glow. The one word that's used nearly in every other line in the movie is 'yakeen.' The movie has to have been infused with that. Here we just don't get it
