Tubelight Teaser Response

The teaser of Salman Khan’s Tubelight was released a couple of days ago. It was aired for the television audience across the Star TV network and for the internet audience on YouTube.

The response has been mixed and it’s probably the weakest teaser of a Salman Khan film in a long time.

Teasers of event films are released to generate ‘instant craze’, which teasers of films like ‘Ek Tha Tiger’ and ‘Sultan’ did get, but ‘Tubelight’ hasn’t. Even the ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’ teaser had those commercial ingredients – India/Pakistan, Bajrang Bali ka bhakt, Action, Romance/Kareena and Nawazuddin for those lighter moments. ‘Tubelight’ lacks almost all of it and relies almost entirely on Salman.

This has left a section of the industry and trade wondering why a teaser was required in the first place – when it didn’t have action or those massy-elements that instantly generates hype around a film.

It could well be because the makers needed more time to get the trailer right and with less 2 months to go for the theatrical release, they wanted to put something out there for the fans and the audience.

The film has also been severely criticised across social and mainstream media for its similarities with the Hollywood film ‘Little Boy’ – even though the makers have officially credited it with ‘Story Based on the Original Film – Little Boy’ in the teaser itself.

Moving on to the more positive side of things, the response to the teaser simply does not matter. Salman Khan is too big at the moment and his films will be watched. Irrespective of the kind of response the teaser gets, audience are now saving money to watch his films during Eid.

Secondly, the mixed response to the teaser also means the makers have the opportunity to put all the negativity (Little Boy, etc) aside by the time the trailer releases in the last week of May.

And finally, the best part of the teaser seems to be Salman himself. The innocence of his character has generated curiosity and it’s not the usual Salman that we get to see during Eid.

  • Find it funny that audiences reject a Salman khan film because it simply isn’t too massy, but I get that many people will be disappointed as they are used to seeing him in a different avatar.
    Tube light is trying something different, so it’s worth a watch

  • Only Action Movies requires a teaser, Impact of Teaser of ETT, Bang Bang was excellent but movies like BB and Tubelight doesn’t require it…
    Though everything depends on Content, 25 cr+ opening is given, it can do 30 cr too if trailer or songs clicks

  • Negative response 🙏🏻 ?
    This teasor will go past 500 K likes on YouTube alone and everyone has loved it ..
    SALMAN is the MASS star ever but this movie is not Mass.. Even Bajrangi was not mass only had 5 minute fight scene !!
    Coming to little boy makers have already credited the movie !!! Hardly 0.000000001% might have watched that movie in india !! Salman in such an innocent avatar !? Family audience will come thronging!!
    Response to TUBELIGHT Teaser is anything but ordinary.. I respectfully disagree with this article !!

  • Those who are saying #Tubelight is copied from #LittleBoy, let me tell you that it’s not. There’s a difference between ‘copying’ and ‘adapting’. Kabir Khan ne teaser ke end credits mein likha hai “based” on Little Boy story. Jaise #Haider Shakespeare ki book se adapt ki gayi thi, plot outline thoda bahut similar tha but baaki sab different tha… waise hi Tubelight ka hai Little Boy se…

    Really? The Teaser is breaking each n every possible record on YT n u’r calling it the Weakest teaser of a Bhai film? No over the top action sequences/No big commercial heroine/Not that strong supporting caste/No vulgarity/No VFX still such insane impact.

    Apart from some fans Almost everyone has praised the Teaser.

  • The film looks completely different from a typical Salman film.But then it’s nice to see him experimenting.Loved the background music and Salman’s performance in the teaser.His innocence in the scene where he tries to move the mountain is so adorable. It may be a breath of fresh air before he arrives with the biggie TZH
    The only problem it seems is that Kabir may be trying to make another BB which cannot be recreated.
    The film irrespective of the teaser will open huge but if there’s not much commercial elements it may fall short of 300 crores which is underwhelming for a SALMAN starrer.

  • its not really weakest…kinda good teaser but the problem is “nothing was new in the teaser” if you compare it with other bolly/holly films…80% scenes of the teaser is as same as that LITTLE BOY trailer….and then there was music which was copied too from Brothers In Arms Earned in Blood THEME(check out on yt)

  • Yeah teaser is average but the criticism is not that much and more importantly salman is trying new things with his every movies now as Kick,Bajrangi,Prdp,Sultan,Tubelight,TigerZindaHai are very very different from each other n even the neutral audience have now realised that after aamir only salman’s movies are rich in content.As far as Tubelight is concerned plot is even better than bajrangi but it all depends on how well kabir has made it

  • tubrlight is not an action film, then why action is going to be shown. the film may not have an action at all, then why they will add action just for the teaser.
    but people used to say indicine is a salman site, it is good that they have given their honest opinion without favouring anyone.
    as far as opening day is concerned it is a ramzan release , so the minimum expectation is 25 crore plus. a 30 crore figure will be better and will give the film a kickstart.
    dangal also had no action, romance but still it took a 29 crore opening. so if you say salman is a bigger star or even equal to aamir it has also to open around that figure. 1 or 2 crore here and there can happen because of ramzan but if it somehow struggles in initial then you have to probably accept that aamir khan has the biggest initial pull in india.
    tubelight should take 28-30 crore opening with a solo release. anything below 25 crore will mean aamir is the only star who can give initial with any genre.

  • @Tejan Srivastava.. LOL. Adaptation is when the story is taken and presented differently. Here even Salman’s actions and mannerisms are similar to Little Boy….
