- Ek Tha Tiger is a regular commercial Bollywood masala film with enough of stardom, entertainment, comedy, suspense and dance blended in to it. Though there is not a lot of novelty attached to the storyline and the way it's narrated, but regular commercial elements playing at the right time will definitely strike a chord with audience.
Review Rating 6.5
- While exceptional in this regard, ETT isn't always brimming with bright logic. It has its share of loopholes, convenient bending and tweaking of a hazy script packed with diplomatic protocol inaccuracies, which dumps characters and introduces new ones at its whim and will. But that is a compromise you're willing to make for a film that doesn't test your nerves or provoke Salman's shirt to tear up like a Hulk cartoon.
Review Rating 6.0
- Ek Tha Tiger poses no such worries. A smartly scripted, crisply edited and stylishly mounted love story cloaked in the garb of an espionage thriller, it makes enough sense for the most part to blow away the air of scepticism.
Review Rating 7.0
- Kabir Khan's direction is thoughtful, focused and never goes off-track. In fact, EK THA TIGER takes the detective genre in Hindi movies to a fresh altitude. Besides, Kabir and co-writer Neelesh Mishra open the cards gradually and the highpoint is the interval point when Salman unravels something shocking. Post interval, the film throws one surprise after another and it reaches its crescendo in the concluding stages, with the climax making a solid impression.
Review Rating 9.0
- There are spurts of adrenalin rush that do come in (especially the extended sequence in the climax) but then these too turn out to be set pieces than the kind that actually make you look at the film as one intriguing affair that was expected from Kabir Khan.
The biggest hurdle that one finds in the entire exercise is the fact that what was expected to be a fusion of good sensibilities (Kabir Khan) and mass offering (Salman Khan) is diluted instead of getting enhanced in 'Ek Tha Tiger'. One can sense that neither of the two could actually go all the way in bringing out their best.
As for Katrina Kaif, she has a large presence in the film and does well in the light hearted scenes as well. In fact her on-screen chemistry with Salman is good too. However one wouldn't term this either as a performance oriented role per se as action takes over the entire second half.
