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: ★★★★☆

  • @nipun, read ur earlier comments again u hv writen about the movies not trailers. Whts wrong if someone says jai ho is brainy? Don’t forget movies r for entertainment not for education. If u want education then join a institution.

  • Wow! Just back home after watching it..
    There are movies. There is entertainment. There is awesomeness. There is celebration. There is experience. There is Kick.
    Absolutely loved. I have watched Telugu kick more than 8 times. I have not expected they would have changed the screenplay more than 60% from the Telugu one. Telugu version was more of a comedy but this one is more of action and romance. They have made it grand.

    Nawazuddin, unbelievable!!! New super villain.

    My rating: 4.5/5 I keep 0.5 with me because in the end it has left me craving for more.

  • @indicine I was just reading comments but thought I might aswell read your review to find out what the controversy was and to my surprise it was nice and love that Jai Ho comment even though I would normally find it provocative but not going to let that detract me from giving you 4 stars for your review… Oh ok wait you get an Extra STAR as you wound ‘nipin lootera’ up so tight so its a 5 star review- everyones a winner- job well done

  • 3 idiots, tzp, znmd, are for learn something for inspiring, And they were best movies…deserves 5/5 star

    i will rate kick 3.25/5 senceless movie..

    if u wanna see master movie watch p.k. In dec.

  • KICK is a typical knockout masala entertainer that has all the quintessential ingredients of a typical Salman Khan movie ; high octane action, sizzling romance, rib tickling comedy and Topsy-turvy storyline.Logic be damned, you won’t be disappointed while watching this movie & this movie gives you enough reasons to get kicked whether you are a Salman fan or not. Despite most cliches of Hindi Cinema being trotted out the ride is worth its while & is a fultoo Paisa Wasool fare.

  • here is what i feel after watching 2o mts into the film…its the most moronic nonentertaining film of the year

    its full of negatives

    the begining is bad

    introduction of salman jackie scooter chase etc maha pathetic

    police dialoguebazi poor ..no jokes there

    sudden change of track to thief story ..pooh pooh..

    salman as thief is bad..

    most definately the wom is bad

    my recommendation..do not bother to spend money

    and yes indicine does not know how to review a film

    loser..loser loser

    shooting in delhi bad idea cos delhi is not beautiful

    so shifting to foreign land became necessary
    side actors are bad saurabh shukla and others overact…action is pathetic.film is slow and boring

    and im sure 90% people here have not seen the film…and yes as always i have not bought the ticket
    only downloaded the film yes pirated print but good enough to let you know how boresome and irritating jackie and saurabh shukla is

    my rating 1/2

  • im watching the drunken scene now after listening to the word kick 50 times already…my husband has already walked out of the room and my son is not interested ..gone down to play…

    the drunken scene with the huge bottle doesnt seem to get over….

    the officers in nonuniform are unattractive ..nawazuddin wants to scare !!

    for me the envelope of first 5 mts is enough to settle all issues …
    and im not saying all this as you might think but im surprised you have not bothered to look into the slackness of pace and overacting and the predictability of the film

    now indicine try recalling the film from my point of view

  • the foreign chase of red bus is not exciting its a copy of james bond and terminator 3 film ..didnt you notice it???if you did why didnt you make a comment of this in your review

  • omg ..the film ended so abruptly!!! such a soft climax..!!!

    what was the film about?? why was it made???

    pathetic..my wasted 2 hrs 40 mts….good i didnt waste my money….

    surely your review is a psycho review…!!

    my husband is very grateful that i didnt allow him to watch the film

    im very sure people have immensely disliked the film but are not speaking against their favorite star out of respect.. this film will be a disaster..whatever this weekend may say….indicine youve messed up big time ..

    my sense in movie read is not that bad that i cant make out between a shabby movie and a class act.. this is a c grade film..with people on ecreen doing as what pleases them..bah

  • @nipun …watch this film..with all risks explained at your own peril…!!!

    but before going for it ask real people how they have liked the film before blindly falling in the trap!!!

    now i have come to realize that indicine does not do a fair reporting

    how can an immensely unwatchable film be given 4 rating???

    out of the question…

    the film is so utterlyy bad that it beats the shit out of the word worst…

    guys please do not waste your money ..trust me i have sat out the film ..comedy nights with kapil is a better show..perhaps savdhan india savdhan is a better utilization of sunday..

  • @mega pirate megha Ever wondered that maybe your husband left the room bcoz he decided to go to a nearby theatre to get a proper kick from watching a movie while you sat alone infront of the 15 inch pc monitor trying to make out what the blurred objects where on screen as the audience are moving around in the front few rows thus obscuring the image the poor performing camera is picking up…? Either that or your hubby just got bored of your ranting deciding its best to leave you all alone to enjoy your sad kick n the kick you got out of writing that pathetic amateurish bordering on psychotic review….

    Such a loser- doesnt help when you say you watched 20 mins coz when I hate a film as much as you supposedly did then Im outta there after 10 mins max like a Rascals or Players or Ratoon Point One…!
    Concern yourself with buying a better larger monitor and buy better copies of pirated dvds than simply downloading any old free rubbish that pops up first. You get what you pay for and in your sad case Im glad you got no KICK in terms of entertainment but only kick you got was venting your frustration out at everyone else who paid to watch an entertaining film whilst you watched blobby blurry objects popping up during the crappy version you downloaded…!

  • Lol at the fact megha has a hubby- jeez cant imagine that bloke has any say in that household apart from nodding his head at every rant that comes out of her foul mouth…. Feel pity for the poor guy- must have been an arranged marriage I bet as she sounds like the last girl you ask out on a date…. Good luck buddy n get out if you can coz movies should only be viewed on the big silver screen or on a plasma screen with a good dvd copy- not on crappy monitors…

  • Ha now see who is raving and ranting….all this fuss over a pathetic film?

    Btw I got an excellent print to watch..and I didnt have to leave my brains at home unlike you who had to leave your brains behind…

    Quite mannerful people here who have a macho look towards women..great..
    The big answer is that the film is pathetic.? Even though it may do good business..but for us its a flop from the heart..

    I wonder why people are getting emotional if I dont want to spend money..and hey its not piracy for something which is freely available..

  • First jai ho flopped beacause of my comments.?? Next this kick will flop because of my comments..which are accurate and truthful…

  • copy copy copy copy ……..
    All salman films were copied from telugu films. That was the power of TELUGU Film. Always It has all kind of masala. Salman can not touch the energetic ravi teja (here of original film). I want to see bollywood directors to be creative and dont copy (remake) the already done.

  • I saw Kick last night on Star Gold channel.. as I expected to be.. one of Salman Khan’s biggest crappiest film ever!!!!! Oh can’t believe that Indicine would give it a 4 star!!!!!! 4 star for this shitty crappy film?!! what was yr rating for Hrithik’s Bang Bang which was 100 million time a better film!!! Do u consider this kachra film as a good film which really deserves 4 stars?!! you are NOT honest in yr reviews..

    Can anyone believe a doctor ( Jaquline Fernandes for sure) as she’s playing a doctor in the film would do a hot sexy dance in the film?!! any doctor would do this in the real life?!!! and I can’t stand Salman Khan any more.. he must retire now or do only Big Boss, and that’s it.
