Kick Movie Review

Sajid Nadiadwala makes his directorial debut with ‘Kick’ starring the man himself – Salman Khan, who returns with yet another masala entertainer to mesmerise his audience during the holy weekend of Eid-ul-fitr. Jacqueline Fernandez is cast as Salman’s love interest. Talented actors like Nawazuddin Siddique and Randeep Hooda have important roles to play.

Expectations of a film that delivers wholesome entertainment are high. Does Kick live up to those humongously high expectations? Let’s find out!

Story: Himanshu Tyagi (Randeep Hooda) meets his prospective bride Shaina (Jacqueline Fernandez) in a train and they start talking to each other. She shares her past with him, the story of her ex-boyfriend Devi Lal Singh (Salman Khan). Everything that Devi does in life, he does it for a ‘KICK’ (mental high). He was a brilliant student, a college topper, but ends up quitting several jobs. Reason? Lack of KICK! Shaina and Devi are in love and share some of the best moments in their lives. But one day, he disappears. Why? For a new Kick.

Himanshu, a police officer, is in search of Devil (Devi Lal a.k.a Devil, get the connection?), one of the smartest thief’s in town. One day, Devil, who has now lost his memory, returns back into their lives. Why did Devil leave Shaina? How did he lose his memory? Why did Devil turn into a thief? Watch Kick to find out!

Salman Khan and Jacqueline Fernandez Kick still

KICK Review – Starring Salman Khan, Jacqueline Fernandez

Kick Review: Sajid Nadiadwala does a decent job in his debut film as director. He retains the core storyline of the original Telugu film, adds a few crowd-pleasing dialogues, gives it a big action film feel and includes every other element that describes a typical Bollywood masala film — Romance, action (although there were fewer action scenes than we expected), comedy, punch dialogues and an item number featuring Nargis Fakhri. The film also reminds you of the ‘Dhoom’ series of films, which again is not a bad thing.

The music of the film grows on you. Himesh Reshammiya’s ‘Jumme Ki Raat Hai’, Yo Yo Honey Singh’s ‘Yaar Na Miley’ and ‘Hangover’ are the three best tracks in the film. ‘Yaar Na Miley’ looks visually stunning on the big screen. However, the placement of the songs could have been better. The editing could have been crisper. The cinematography is top notch and the production design is outstanding. Sajid Nadiadwala leaves no stone unturned in making KICK technically brilliant. Make-up, styling and costumes are all different and good. Rajat Arora’s dialogues will get extreme reactions – you will either love it or absolutely hate it.

Coming to the performances, Kick is Salman Khan’s show from start to finish. This is his version of Dhoom 4 and he charms his way through. Jacqueline Fernandez looks pretty and surprisingly doesn’t get completely out-shined by Salman’s presence. Randeep Hooda is good, but hams in a few scenes. Nawazuddin Siddiqui is outstanding. Mithun Chakraborty, Saurabh Shukla, Sanjay Mishra and the rest are all good. Nargis Fakhri looks gorgeous in a special appearance for her item song.

Overall, one of the dialogues in ‘KICK’ that has become popular is “Dil mein aata hoon… samajh mein nahi”. That dialogue pretty much sums up the entire film. If watching Salman Khan on the silver screen gives you a ‘KICK’, leave your brains back at home, take your entire family along and enjoy the 2 hour 27 minutes extravaganza called KICK!

Reasons why you should be booking your KICK tickets

  • Salman Khan.
  • Jacqueline looks picture-perfect throughout. Watch out for Jumme Ki Raat.
  • High production values that make Jai Ho look like a b-grade film in comparison
  • Has good action, comedy and romance. Chemistry between Jacqueline and Salman is good.

Reasons why you shouldn’t be watching KICK

  • Don’t like Salman? Don’t bother.
  • If you don’t like leaving your brains back at home.
  • Editing and song placement
Rating: ★★★★☆

    Someone seems to be burning
    too much fun

  • Lol I always find @babaji ka thullu, @nipun, @arjun kapoor and many others bashing each other…. ur fights r so funny n interesting lol….. and lmao indicine replies for some @arjun kapoor comments….. Keep fighting guys… its very interesting

  • Good production values and jacqueline looking good aren’t good enough reasons to watch kick. So judging by the review, its an average film and one only for salman fans.

  • looks like a sugarcoated and overly generous review. maybe didnt want to be abused by salman fans by giving lower stars?

  • Indicine reviews are biased now….They have given 2.5 star to Holiday which got highly +ive wom from public n has 7.9 IMDB rating

  • I request all of u to no more war pls jus enjoy the good movies ……even salman sir or sharukh sir don’t like all these things so no more comparison …..appreciate the hard work done by salman in kick and hrithik in bang bang

  • can’t watch till the Eid.
    anyway good reviews from you guys.
    I hope kick does good bussiness these weekend.

  • There is no chemistry between salman n Jacqueline. Please stop lying. Salman looks much older than Jacqueline.

  • Wo god guys please stop arguing.
    Just enjoy the film.
    According to all reviews its full on entertainer & we want entertain so watch it.

    And indicine given perfect review they said only reason of disliking Kick is if you dislike Salman….& in so many reviews i read that like ‘Even Salman hater also unable to dislike film’.

  • we taking our brains along with us .
    much expectations from kick and after review u said leave your brains at home . now it is clear that salman will not beat Aamir in film for sure . hoping that it will not cross dhoom 3 but should have to cross crap Express and kadar3

  • indicine just accept it u r biased for khans than other actors..not expected this from u..and i really think kick didnt deserve 4 stars..its just u know it will collect huge so u gave 4 stars ..

  • @nipun You must be the only self proclaimed critic who rates movies based on your previous ratings.
    Indicine and most other reviewers review their film independantly and based on expectations from the film. They dont think “I rated Lootera 5 stars, Kick is 42.57% as good as Lootera, so I will rate it as 5 x 42.57/100= 2.285. Rounding it off to 2/5 and then publishing the review” Thet would be buffoonery.

  • believe am hardcore srk fan but kick 1000times better dhoom-3 or ek tha tiger if you hate salman blindy stay at home and being salman film family audiences will love it no vulgarity no cheap jokes…

  • @babaji ka thullu dont waste time family audience,youth like it big time stop crying man entertainment akki wont be effected

  • @nipun, yesterday you said standard of bang bang(the movie) is way better than Kick. Have you watched both the movie? Was not that stupidity? Senseless? Blindness?

  • Indicine gave 2.5/5* to Ek tha tiger and the movie thrashed each nd every record in 2012. Now indicine has given 4/5* to Kick, imagine what is going to happen this year……!

  • This is not done….the tone of ur whole review was 2.5-3 stars….and u gave 4str to please the fan base

  • This is one of the worst films i have watched in Theatre cursing myself why did i wasted my money on Crap.

  • @nipun, Jai ho was not brainy. Only rohit series are brainy movies in the world, where an alien came within two seconds from a planet which situated 500 light year away from earth after listening the melody DING DING DING, DONG, DONG, DONG.

  • ‘Wow! Just watched Kick. I can’t describe what I watched. Just out of the world. Best film of the decade’
    This type of comments are coming. Bewere of them. These are the people who don’t watch films in theatre but barks in websites.

  • Wow thanks for the review indicine
    look at haters they are so insecure tht midnyt review from indicine has more haters nd insecure morons commenting then salman fans
    any ways 4 stars i knew this one is a block buster
    Best of luck kick team nd salman khan

    hater keep burning
