How often in Bollywood we come across a movie that carries an emotional vibe throughout and brings tears every now and then! Bajrangi Bhaijaan is not over the top usual SALMAN EID SPECIAL he has been known for years, it’s rather very simple and has its heart at the right place. The character build up of Pawan/Salman is commendable as an innocent soft/pure hearted person and it’s that strong build up of his character that makes the upcoming proceeding real and convincing.
Seven year old Debutant Harshaali Malhotra melts your heart with her innocent smile and one can feel her pain through her expressive eyes. The movie is all about Humanity, it’s about being a good human being keeping aside all religions/nationality and how beautifully it depicts that at each point in life we meet such people who are ready to offer help and restore people's faith in Humanity.
Another highlight is the character played by Nawazuddin Siddiqui, another innocent good for nothing reporter who is kind hearted and helps the girl without a second thought, it also shows the importance of media and social network in today's era if used in a right thoughtful way. Nawazuddin is a natural artist and fits into every character in an effortless way that is spectacular, notice how innocently he asks about Mahabharata..'Mahabharata...Picture Hai?' then a 10 second pause and then 'Nayi Picture Hai'?
My favourite moment was in the climax when Salman while crossing the border enacts like Shahida/Munni by nodding his head and waving his one hand on seeing Kareena on the other side while she screams his name, a very strong impactful scene which portrays the impact the little girl had on him, the kind of strong bond that they shared, the kind of high emotional relationship they shared, that one small gesture says it all..WoW!
Last time I was so emotionally involved and moved by a movie throughout was Taare Zameen Par. Bajrangi Bhaijaan is by far the best Salman Khan movie in recent years; it has the power to squeeze a lump out of your throat and not only tears when it comes to the climax.
Life is all about Humanity; it’s all about helping others...Lesson learnt!
