Movie Review: Kick (2014)

by Pawan Manghnani on July 26th, 2014

Runtime: 146 minutes.

Reviewing a Salman Khan movie is like opening a sun-tanning lounge in Dubai! Completely Pointless. But with this review, I'll try to save as many lives as I possibly can.

Kick is a remake of a 2009 hit telugu movie of the same name. The movie is set to screen on 4400 screens throughout India and about 700 screens internationally. Movie will make its money on the opening eid-weekend itself due its wide release vis-a-vis 5100 headache inducing screens.  But who cares about the audience? The makers are laughing all the way to the bank as in the picture above.

Jacqueline Fernandez did only one good thing by renaming Salman Khan's name as "Headache" which is exactly what he is. Ouch!

Sorry, die-hard fans of Sallu Bhai. You will die really hard defending this movie to your friends. Everyone knows the mad fan following of superstar Salman. As a kid, My cousin brother had learnt how to whistle just to cheer sallu bhai on screen (which is slightly worrying coz guys generally learn this to cheer a girl) Even he was in half a mind to walk out of this movie.
Missing. But to summarise, Devi Lal Singh / DeviL (Salman Khan) is an adrenaline junkie who will go to any illiogical length, breadth, height, low to get his "kick".  Shaina (Jacqueline Fernandez) as his love-kick-interest is a Psychiatrist who looks like she needs a Psychiatrist herself after Devi breaks up with Shaina to find another missing kick. Enter Himanshu (Randeep Hooda) as an arrange marriage prospect who also happens to be a cop sworn to stop Devil's robin-hoodish crimes. There is an emotional plot twist towards the climax wherein Devi's father (Mithun Chakraborty) who by the way is completely "wasted" in the role and also by consuming desi daru, tells Shaina about Devi's ultimate kick helping poor children fight their diseases by robbing from the rich. Say What ?

Also, to remind you which movie you are sitting in, Each character throws the word "kick" a gazillion times and another 50,000 times for good measure that you feel like kicking their faces shut.


​Decent score by Himesh Reshamiya but bad lyrics bring the whole experience down. And, Salman should never sing.
~Salman Khan has finally accepted that he can't act to save his life.
~Nawazuddin Siddiqui's acting as the Villian.
~Rajat Aroraa’s few good dialogues like "Main tumhaare saath budhaa hona chaahta hu, tumhaari wajah se nahi."
~Beautiful & refreshing locales of Poland.

~Salman Khan has finally accepted that he can't act to save his life.
~Chetan Bhagat helped pen the screenplay which gave us a false hope that we are in for some entertainment.
~Beautiful but wooden wax statue that was Jacqueline Fernandez' acting.
~Everything else in between.
~My 3 Hours!

Salman: Mujhe samajhne ki koshish mat karna, Dil mein aata hu, samajh mein nahi.
Audience: Na movie dil mein aayi na samajh mein.

A Typical Masala Movie. With added garam masala, chaat masala and all MDH masala's giving audience indigestion & acidity.

Sure, No brainer entertainer's have taken off big time. But instead of leaving your brains home to watch this movie, I highly recommend to leave your body home as well. Not even a one-time watch. If you still have the courage to do watch this pain-inflicting flick, be ready for a bad "Hangover"

Someone please "kick" the makers.
In the nuts.
With a steel-toe boot.
A gazillion times.
​And another 50,000 times for good measure.
