The review for Tiger 3: Overlong, Overheated, but Unstoppable
Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif keep the show on track for the most part. Revathy and Simran’s performances shine amid Diwali release excitement. Salman and Katrina show the value of traditional character development.
Spies, explosions, gunfights, and hand-to-hand combat seem to stick around. Tiger 3 might help us get used to it. The movie mostly follows the plot.
The movie was criticized for its length and drama, but Salman Khan, in his third stint as Tiger, proved enduring hero appeal. Unlike War, Tiger 3 keeps things neutral, with Katrina Kaif also in the action spotlight. You can see the lead actor’s charm. In this third installment, the brave hero’s daring acts come back on a bigger scale.
The story revolves around Tiger, his wife, and their friends—Rakesh Chaurasia (Kumud Mishra) and Anand Rao (Anant Vidhaat). It delves into the events involving Junior (Sartaaj Kakkar), the spy couple’s kid, and Shaheen (Riddhi Dogra in a cameo), a pregnant Pakistani agent directly linked to the two main characters.
A Review of Action and Excess
In Tiger 3, action often steals the show from acting. True to the promise, Tiger 3 delivers breathtaking action scenes. Some will keep you on the edge of your seat, while others may make you gasp, even if they are not entirely convincing.
They all tend to do that at some point. Tiger 3 would have been better with sharper editing. Let’s give a round of applause to the VFX team, stunt coordinators, and cinematographer, Anay Goswami. The film maintains its strong pace with action moments until, as mentioned earlier, there’s a risk of it becoming too overwhelming.
Enjoy Tiger 3 by overlooking occasional logic lapses and the repetitive nature of certain action scenes. Tiger 3 shines as Tiger and his team battle renegades in the ISI and the Army. Their goal is to stage a coup against the peacenik prime minister, Nasreen Irani (Simran). The events unfold in Istanbul.
In a key action scene set in a Turkish hamam, the tough heroine wears a towel. She faces a dangerous Chinese agent and martial arts instructor, portrayed by American stuntwoman-actress Michelle Lee. Their clash adds a cool vibe to the scene, and the spotless towels bring an extra layer to the movie.
About the movie
In the first half, stunt doubles handle most of the action, not the two stars. In the second part, Salman and Katrina actively participate, and “jump” is the key action. They are joined by another superstar, repaying a favor from his previous film in the same popular genre.
Maneesh Sharma’s Tiger 3 sets its tone in three rapid sequences. It begins with Katrina Kaif’s (Zoya) birth in London at the turn of the millennium. The prelude introduces a character destined for grandeur, not far from the title hero.
In the second scene, R&AW chief Maithili Menon (Revathy) assigns Tiger a rescue mission named Mission Timepass. If Tiger 3 aims to be a “timepass,” it succeeds remarkably.
In the next scene, the man Tiger needs to save insists his actions were not ‘personal.’ When Tiger and Zoya encounter former ISI agent Aatish Rehman (Emraan Hashmi), the story becomes personal. The conflict involves truth and half-truth, betrayal and redemption, blackmail and resistance, democracy and dictatorship, and spies and true friends.
The story takes a personal turn for Tiger and Zoya, on one side, and former ISI agent Aatish Rehman (Emraan Hashmi) on the other. The conflict is between half-truth and whole truth, resistance and blackmail, betrayal and redemption, democracy and dictatorship, and spies and true friends.
