Eid is around the corner and Salman Khan is set to re-conquer the box office by donning a superhero cape. All his fans are expecting something 'Kick Ass'.
As a producer, Sajid Nadiadwala has had a successful run in Bollywood and now he has decided to sit in the director's chair and go all grand with his directorial debut.
Devi Lal Singh (Salman Khan) is a genius and holds an engineering degree, but hates routine. He enjoys living life filled with thrill as it gives him a high which he likes calling KICK.
Devi falls in love with Doctor Shaina (Jacqueline Fernandez) who is a psychiatrist, and she too eventually loses her heart to him. Devi is looking for a life full of 'Kicks' while Shaina wants to lead a normal life, get married and have kids. So Devi decides to call the relationship off.
Shaina moves to Poland with her family and her dad tries to set her up with Inspector Himanshu Tyagi (Randeep Hooda) who is visiting Warsaw for an official mission.
Shaina shares her past with Himanshu and he confides in her about his mission to find 'Devil', a mugger who is looting millions.
On the other hand, there is Firoz (Nawazuddin Siddiqui) who is running a big medical scam and is on Devil's hate list.
Salman Khan's character in the movie is real and very much like him and that works as you can see him totally at ease.
Even the superhero gig of Devil is kept believable, yet ecstatic. Salman is an eye candy and once again will manage to entertain his fans with his humor and talent.
With KICK, Jacqueline Fernandez gets in the A league. The way the actress is presented is amazing. She looks very confident, acts well and her dance moves in 'Jumme ki Raat' will leave the audience awestruck.
Randeep Hooda does a fine job as a cop, he looks really handsome and delivers his lines well.
Nawazuddin Siddiqui is extraordinary; he manages to look like a powerful villain despite a lean physique.
Nawaz has the audience cracking when he says 'China ka Maal' dialogue and also the evil laughter adds shades to his dark character.
Special mention about Nargis Fakhri who adds Oomph to the movie with her item song. She looks hot and sizzles on screen.
Mithun Chakraborty and Archana Puran Singh who play Salman's parents have done an average job.
Hollywood is inspiration behind Sajid's KICK, but he smartly adapts the style to suit Indian audiences.
Sajid Nadiadwala makes one of the biggest directorial debuts in Bollywood, as he makes a movie that is chic, gripping and entertaining.
The screenplay is brilliantly co-written by Chetan Bhagat, Rajat Arora, Keith Gomes and Nadiadwala.
The dialogues by Rajat Arora will welcome a lot of claps, especially the classic one "Dil mein aata hoon, samajh mein nahin".
Director of Photography, Ayananka Bose does a stupendous job and makes the movie look like a magnum opus. Editing by Ramesh S Bhagat is perfect and he keeps the length just right.
'Yaar Na Mile' is the star song, Yo Yo Honey Singh collaborates with Salman Khan for the first time, Jasmine Sandlas is the surprise packet with her rustic vocals. 'Jumme ki Raat' by Himmesh Reshammiya is rocking and is crooned by Mika in a totally fun way. 'Hangover' by Meet Bros is lovely and what works is that Salman has sung the track.
Background score by Julius Packiam works as it adds more thrill to the movie.
KICK has its share of flaws too, however, it will work as it is a larger than life entertainer.
Salman does deserve a big 'Eidi' and KICK has BLOCKBUSTER written all over it.
Total paisa vasool!!!
