I finally got the chance to watch Bajrangi Bhaijaan, starring Salman Khan, and I have your Bollywood movie review right here! Check it out with video review also.
Pawan (Salman Khan) aka ‘Bajrangi’ is a pure hearted man, devouted to his religion, his love and his word meets a lost mute child in the steets of his city. Bajrangi decides to help return the child, whom he calls Munni, and return her to her family which is across the boarder in Pakistan. This feat is not as easy as it seems since he lacks a visa, both countries are in extremely high tensions and he is being called an India spy. Check out my video review below.
Salman Khan At His Best
While I love a good fight scene from my boy Salman, this movie showed some top notch acting chops from him. He is truly believable as a simple, purehearted and honest man, who fails time and time again but never gives up on his end goal. He is a man with purpose and true to his word. While we do still get a glimpse of the tough brow beating Khan in a scene where little “Munni” was being sold to a whore house, he shines in the heart tugging role.
Rating: 4.5 out of 5
While I loved the film and initially wanted to give it a 5 out of 5 rating, a couple of parts started to fall flat for me, particularly when they were on the run in Pakistan. However, those parts are nothing in the grand scheme of the movie and the ending which had me in TEARS! The film centers on the boarders of India and Pakistan and the tensions between each country. This resonates in my own country where talks of a “boarder wall” has been discussed over and over with mixed reviews. If only my own country can see the humanity and silliness or such division which is shown in this movie. The ending grabbed at my heart strings as the two country come together for the common good and my faith in humanity as the golden hearted Pawan risks everything to help a child.
