Tubelight

The much awaited Salman Khan and Sohail Khan starrer Tubelight releases in theaters all around the country today.

The fabulous duo of the Khan brothers grace the screen once again, but this time Salman has drifted away from his superhero image to that of a naïve and vulnerable young man Laxman who is fondly and often teasingly called Tubelight.

Inspired by Alejandro Monteverde’s Little Boy the movie tells the story of two brothers and the deep bond they share. Kabir Khan has re-told this tale keeping Indo-China war as the backdrop and the real life camaraderie shared by Salman and Sohail weaves in real emotions to the upheaval Laxman faces when his brother is sent off to fight a war. Here are some of the reviews that the movie got on its first day of release:

The Indian Express

When the main act isn’t convincing, the film becomes just like the title: mostly flicker with a little late glow. The one word that’s used almost in every other line in the movie is ‘yakeen.' The film should have been infused with it. Here we just don’t buy it.

Khaleej Times

The movie has good intentions but hardly any plot. With the running time of 150 minutes, the film stretches too much. The director tries his best to stir emotions and make its audience cry, but the attempt instead of looking genuine felt too forced.

First Post

Tubelight takes you on an emotional roller coaster ride and succumbs to a clichéd ending, pandering to the good old feel good factor. It still makes for a worthwhile watch.

Times Of India

The film that propagates the values of family, faith, and patriotism doesn’t manage to take a complete leap of faith because somewhere someone couldn't pull this one off convincingly

Bollywood Hungama

On the whole, TUBELIGHT comes across as a colossal disappointment as it fails to engross the audiences due to its wafer-thin plot.
