Bajrangi Bhaijaan review: Entertainment, Salman Khan style
Cast: Salman Khan, Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Kareen Kapoor Khan, Sharat Saxena & Harshaali Malhotra. Director: Kabir Khan Rating: 2.5/5

The famous Bhaijaan is back, and is all set to entertain his fans on the auspicious occasion of EID. The industry has many Khans, but Bhai has a major fan base with the masses, who blow whistles when he pulls off his over the top and logic defying stunts. Bajrangi Bhaijaan is no different than any other Salman Khan movie in this respect. The song 'Chal beta selfie le le re', has already become a rage.

Lately, Salman Khan has been including social messages in his movies, starting with 'Jai Ho', where he portrayed the 'Aam Admi', and later in 'Kick', where he took up the cause of raising money for sick children. In Bajrangi Bhaijaan he advocates religious tolerance and secularism. But let me warn you in advance to leave your brain behind, like you always do for every Salman movie.

Salman plays the role of Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi, who is a devotee of Lord Hanuman. His father is a member of the RSS in Pratapgarh, UP, who wants him to excel in studies and wrestling, but Pawan has no interest in either. His father ultimately decides to send him to Delhi for a job, where he meets his lady love, Rasika (Kareena) and her father Digambar (Sharat Saxena), a staunch brahmin.

Pawan aka Bajrangi, being a true devotee, never misses a chance to participate in events which are associated with Lord Hanuman, and thus lands at kurukshetra by chance, where he finds an abandoned girl child, Munni (Harshaali), who is from Pakistan and is unfortunately a mute. On learning that the child has been stranded, he takes it upon himself to re-unite the girl with her parents in Pakistan.

Salman portrays the character of Pawan with utter ease and with a much mellowed down performance in recent times. His character has a certain degree of innocence and calmness, and there are very few scenes where Salman requires to take his shirt off, to flaunt his body and flex his muscles. Pawan gets the shock of his life on learning, that Munni is a Pakistani Muslim (he calls her Mohamden) and eats Non-vegetarian food, as he himself is a pure vegetarian.

Nevertheless, he embarks on his journey to Pakistan with Munni and meets a small-time Pakistani TV reporter Chand Nawab (Nawazuddin). The character of Chand Nawab is well written, and the seasoned actor Nawazuddin impresses with his performance, yet again. He is the one who also provides some comic element in the film. The video's of such scenes are already viral. In one such scene:

Chand Nawab: Ek baat batao, Iske ammi, abbu ko dhundoge kaise?

Pawan: Bajrangbali madad karenge na.

Chand Nawab: Yahaan, Pakistan me bhi?

The script written by V Vijayendra Prasad (Father of SS Rajamouli, the director of Bahubali) hardly falters and maintains its focus on the central characters all throughout. The dialogue writers have ensured that the movies does not hurt the religious sentiments of any community. On the overall it is at least a one-time watch movie, which provides some entertainment.

Well, I am certainly not revealing the climax, so book your tickets and enjoy the show.
