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!

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: ★★★★☆

  • Babaji ka lallu
    whts ur problem if indicine praise HR bang bang u go crazy nd if it does for kick indicine is not up to mark
    Someone seems to be burning

    too much fun

  • This type of movies will get 3 stars from critics and 4 to 4.5 stars from audience… Dont miss this movie….

  • @tiger: what’s the need of bringing krrish series here? ? I said about salmanfans only after seeing the hate comments by @saif. BTW, i was talking about teaser n trailer. Nt about those movies.
    @js: huh. .as i have already said,ratings should be given based upon their quality. While reveiwing holiday,indicine reduced the ratings. But in kick, he is expecting others to use no brain .

  • From a loyal fan of HRITHIK,
    Best of luck to all salman khan fans for KICK day.
    Be Yours day guys
    EID MUBAARAK to all of you.

  • @Tiger,

    lol, i can’t stop laughing, lol lol lol – ding ding dong dong……and bang bang alien on your doorstep..hahahaha. gosh..

    @nipun, is the biggest hypocrite hro fan

    if bang bang trailer/teaser is way better than kick, why so less likes for bang bang?

    no one wants to compare hro to salman. hro is good at acting we all accept, no need for your confirmation, but star power wise he is still miles behind salman.

  • I dont know whom to believe with reviews. The reviews of kick are going as low as 1 to as high as 4 out of 5. Imdb, which is a platform for common people to vote put kick at 5.4/10. Anyway, all the best salman. If its as entertaining as indicine says it is, it has a chance to do 200cr and maybe even much higher than that. I’m not watching the film as I’ve already seen kick in telugu so no use of wasting my time on this again. Have fun Salman fans. I hope u get your moneys worth.

  • @all,

    Kick is an action-comedy genre. In that genre the movie rating is 4 of 5. Simple.

    You guys are simply blaming Indicine for nothing.

    A movie has to be rated according to its genre and not according to a reviewers own whims and fancies. Just because s/he dislikes action/romance doesn’t mean the movie that is being reviewed is not good.

    If this is not the case, then an illogical movie like Krishh series should not get even half a star. however, when Krrish is rated, it is rated according to its genre – superhero, action, and it scored well on that genre.

  • WTF??? 4 stars?! Didn’t expect this from u indicine..worst review by indicine.This review is only here to please salman fan’s.i doubt evn d notorious taran adarsh would give kick more than 3 stars!

  • Bang bang teaser cross 4 milliion views on youtube.
    amazing teaser .
    excellent teaser.
    awesome teaser.

    bang bang is coming.

  • Film will release tomorrow in 4100 screens in India and 700 plus screens in overseas. Film has 14 clear day run and has tough target of surpassing 273 cr nett of ‘Dhoom 3’ because anything less than 240 cr nett will be a loss making proposition for distributors. 2nd weekend or 2nd week will decide its final outcome but yes, this will be biggest hit for Salman Khan and should cross that all important 200 cr nett mark.

  • @Tiger – Err, Sci-Fi (Science Fiction) is a completely different genre. There might be hundreds of Sci-Fi movies in the world, but none of them are supposed to be “real”. Expecting Sci-Fi movie to be “real” is laughable, as they can’t.

    @Nipun, there’s no need to compare it with BMB and Raanjhana, maybe those two movies deserved better rating considering their genre as well, but that is done. Most of their reviews are spot on, its tough to review a masala genre movie considering there are both type of people, one those like masala movies, and one who don’t.

    @Indicine – I haven’t watched the movie yet, but I m little surprised with it being, “leave your brains at home” type of movie. I thought it will be different than typical Salman movies. Anyways, I can say Salman fans should like it for sure after reading the review.

  • The movie is out of the world their should be Aamir or hritik their . Sad to see worst screenplay .
    pluses
    1.salman salman salman
    2._action in (climax only ) less scene are jaw drawping

    minuses
    1. Jacqueline seen in full cloths
    2.movie looks like Dhoom 3 nothing new
    3.chase sequence are too much slow motion
    4.salman robberies are worst he stolen pen why so much hype over pen ??
    5.the cycle scene is epic failure ( there is police which chasing him on 4 wheelers and hero aged ahed on cycle ) its too bad its not matched dhoom 3 climax scene

    on clear cut it is only for those people who liking chennai express, himmatwaala, humshakals , tmk, and jai ho .
    it do 170-190cr business

  • indicine pls give true rewiev i think u in hurry movie will earn big but its not neccasery its rewiev positive

  • I just watched jai ho today. It was really awesome movie with great content and message, though some action was stupid. But can’t believe why it flopped? When salman does nonbeainers like ready, bodyguard, ETT, dabangg, etc they make money but when he does a movie like jai ho, then it flops, which proves that our country’s audience badly needs mental help. IQ is decreasing every year.

  • Look at all the reviews on the websites. Majority have given it good to very good, while a few chunk have given bad reviews. Who are these?

    Women reviewers.

    Again, it is majorly the reviewer’s personal view rather than reviews of a movie and its target audience. When will these reviewers understand this basic difference?

    Just like in the case of Krrish 3 and Dhoom 3 where most of the women reviewers gave it a thumbs down, similar things are happening in Kick too. Sukanya, Mihir etc., etc., are all the women brigade who least understand an action movie.

    Anyways, they thrashed Krrish, Dhoom3 and now Kick, while Krrish and Dhoom did good collections, lets see what Kick does.

  • @nipun…dude (if u r )..i really dont think so tht CE deserve 3.5 stars..i mean ,,its soo loool tht u said CEwas the most loved film of 2013..persnly i think it was the worst movie srk ever done in his career..nd for srk fans i want to one thing..,,u guyz r so proud on srk..haha..well nw even srk adobt salman khan type genere of movies to remain in industry nd CE is a great proof..so just keep calm nd enjy KICK

  • Awesome film….first day first show..ready for few more times. Wowwww amazing entertainment. Enjoyed. All time blockbuster for sure.

  • Ratings dont matter in a salman film.? Watch first repent later is always the system with salman films.? Even if indicine had given it a rating of 1 it would still go ahead and do a business of 175 cr which it will do eventually.. no pont dissecting the film…it will be a salman film whether you like it or not..songs are good except hangover which sounds like a lullaby..and im sure people posting comments so far have not seen the film but just encouraging others which is all fine with me..but I will return after my watch..then indicine we will find out..!!!

  • What was the whole idea of making a film similar to dhoom3.?

    all are bereft of ideas. Btw laut aao trisha is a copy of disappearance of natalie holloway…

  • @indicine please take note of this !!!!
    comments those get 12-20 likes are popular and those with more than 20 are highly rated but same should b applicable to dislikes , comments with more than 12 dislikes should b popular and so on…..
    please do reply….

  • @rohit, i knw that. Also i liked the movie so much. Even i bought CD of the movie. @Nipun forced me to write such a bad comment. Also i wanted to tell him movies are for entertainment not for education.

  • Yes.kick lives up to the expectations.it does start out as a loud masala film but then devil enters and from their its altogether a different movie.kick does give the adrenaline rush to clap ,whistle,laugh and celebrate salman khan at its best.I hv never been a salman fan and the last bhai film that I really liked was wanted way back in 2009.the action if the film is top class and so is cinematography.but its the acting if everyone from mithun to randeep,nawaaz to sourabh that makes it an engaging watch.And to bind all the factors together v hv our bhai in top form and chetan bhagat bringing cohesiveness to an otherwise complicated film.sajid nadiadwala also does a decent job.

    If u r a bhai fan u will love it more than jai ho,ett,d2,ready abd bodyguard but uf u r just a normal fan of movies then also u will term it decent to complete paisa vasool.I watched it in a high end multiplex which was full of claps and whistles.

    I will go with 8 out if 10 for this must watch paisa vasool entertainer.
