------------------

Shared below are views - Beyond the initial review with some more interesting insights.
 
As mentioned in the detailed write-up, the biggest mistake Kabir Khan makes in TUBELIGHT is to follow the original English film as it is without making any significant changes for the Hindi film viewers. Moreover it seems he chose to remake LITTLE BOY as he was in search of a similar plot close to BAJRANGI BHAIJAAN having all identical emotional elements playing it safe. And the English film had them all such as a simpleton kind of key character, family emotions, a kid remaining with the hero for most of the time, tension at the border and talks about a neighbouring country generating patriotic feelings amongst the audience as desired.
 
However he was wrong in taking the viewers as granted remaining overconfident about a subject missing the entertainment quotient that happens to be the real decisive factor in a Salman Khan film. 
 
So though TUBELIGHT has all good performances from the entire cast ensemble including Salman Khan trying to come out of his famous casual comfort zone, the film actually suffers due to its writing and direction for which Kabir Khan will have to take the responsibility more than anyone else.
There were reports of some tension between Kabir and Salman Khan during the making, that might have been there due to the difference of opinion about various elements in the film lacking the entertainment factor. A not so pleasant state of affairs for Sohail Khan too as despite giving an earnest heartfelt performance, this still might add into the long list of 'less-successful' films done with brother Salman Khan (also considered as a jinx).

In addition, its really amazing that these BIG STARS do show their concern over the deliberately increased ticket prices at the time of all major releases, but very cleverly choose to remain silent when it comes to their own big film releasing in a festival weekend.
 
As usual, once again the prices were increased by the multiplexes specifically for TUBELIGHT’s shows and though the public doesn’t complain accepting it as their open exploitation, BTC will continue its revolt by deducting one star from the film’s ratings for this shameful practice.
 
Final Rating : 2 / 5

Thanks sir for your wonderful views as usual. As you know I watched it first day first show ( literally- coz I don't hv money enough to buy tickets in any of the other show - shameless ticket price) and that too in a multiplex ( first time for a Bhai movie).. To be honest I was happy with this simple movie and really appreciated salman for coming out of his comfort zone and doing something honest and different. I really don't know what to say about the critics..first I got depressed but then I thought - May God bless them..
