Ek Tha Tiger was officially announced on 4th May 2011 by Yash Chopra. The annoucement caught many by surprise as Salman Khan in his 2 decade long career has never worked in a YashRaj Film. Also, the rumours surrounding Katrina and Salman's off screen relationship were going from bad to worse, with the alledged secret relationship between Ranbir Kapoor and Katrina.
Both Chopra and Salman seemed to be quite excited about the script which is based on the story conceived and written by Aditya Chopra. Kabir Khan who directed the very successful New York in 2009 and Kabul Express way back in 2006, has written the screenplay and dialogues along with Neelesh Misra.
The film will go on floors in July and the shoot is expected to be wrapped up before the end of the year.
Expected release date is in June - July next year, soon after IPL 5.
The action sequences are brilliantly shot. The first one on the train, while a bit over-the-top, works purely because of Salman Khan. There are plenty of chase sequences which finally culminates in the climax, where Salman jumps straight from a bike onto a plane! It’s the same old stuff though, every bullet that Tiger fires hits the target. The villains, unfortunately, left their contact-lenses back at home.
No logic behind the storyline or scenes: Your left with a lot of unanswered questions towards the end of the film – (possible spoilers, don’t read if you haven’t watched the film) why does the RAW suddenly decide to help Tiger towards the end? What is Zoya really after? Why is the ISI so casual and ever-so-forgiving towards her? The professor’s character is shut out completely after the first half. The script has a lot of loop-holes and the twists and turns don’t work.
