✔     Introduction

Hello Friends, I hope you are doing fine and are having a good time on bitlanders. Today I have come up again with my another new blog with the title of "Bollywood Movie Review - Tiger Zinda Hai".  Friends, this blog is about a recently released Hit Bollywood movie "Tiger Zinda Hai". This movie is about a secret agent who is serving for the Indian Secret Foreign Intelligence Agency which is also known as RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) but has absconded with a Pakistani Secret Agent working for the ISI (Inter-Services Intelligence) after a love affair with her.  Although RAW and ISI both are looking for those absconders but they also have trust in them that they may be useful in getting important information.  That is the reason why RAW contacted its agent in the movie to complete a mission in Iraq and being a premiere agent of RAW, that agent performed its duties diligently with the help of his wife who is an ISI agent.    The movie was directed by Ali Abbas Zafar who has been giving blockbuster Indian movies for the last ten years.  The movie was produced by Yash Raj Films which is a huge name in Indian Film Industry.

The movie "Tiger Zinda Hai" was recently released on December 22, 2017 under the distribution banner of Yash Raj Films.  Some details of cast of this movie is as under:



✤    Katrina Kaif as Zoya

✤    Salman Khan as Tiger

✤    Paresh Rawal as Firdauz 

✤    Sajjad Delafrooz as Abu Usman

✤    Neha Hinge as Maria

✤    Angad Bedi as Nami

✤    Kumud Mishra as Rakesh

✤    Girish Karnad as Shenoy

✤    Paresh Pahuja as Azaan

✤    Gavie Chahal as Captain Abrar

✤    Kashmira Irani as Sana

✤    Anupriya Goenka as Poorna





The film is visually stunning in parts and Salman Khan plays Tiger with roaring confidence and dialogues packed with punch. Of course, his fans get a true-blue Salman Khan moment when he bares his torso. However, the screenplay often loses focus, slackening the film’s pace and our attention. Director Ali Abbas Zafar had a lot of ammo in hand, with the star power of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif adding to that. But the direction falters and he is unable to keep you riveted through the film’s runtime. Supporting actors that make up the rescue mission team are competent and Paresh Rawal delivers a dependable performance. Katrina Kaif gets into action-girl mode, displaying some kick-ass stunts. Meanwhile, the antagonist, Abu Usman (Sajjad Delafrooz), heading the terrorist organisation, is effective in his role.

Since nurses of Indian and Pakistani origin have been held hostage, therefore, both RAW and ISI want to have safe recovery of their nursing staff, whereas American Forces want to have an airstrike in order to get rid of Abu Usman.  On the request of RAW, American CIA postpones their airstrike operation for a week in order to given them a chance before CIA execute their plan.  The Senior Officer at RAW, Shenoy thinks that Tiger who absconded the RAW eight years ago is the best person to command this operation to rescue nurses.  They try to locate Tiger who is found to be living in Australia with his wife and a kid.  He is requested to join this operation and rescue his country-fellows.  Tiger initially refuses to cooperate as he thinks he is no more interested in such activities.  However, on the insistence of his wife Zoya, he gives his consent and joins the operation along with his wife Zoya.  Tiger reaches Syria and meets with his counterparts Azaan, Namit and Rakesh working in RAW. He finds out that there are some members of ISI present at the site with the same mission to rescue the hostage nurses.  These ISI agents are Abrar and Javed.  Besides, there is on another person Firdauz who works under Abu Usman management but is actually working for RAW.

Tiger reaches an Oil Refinery which is under control of Abu Usman.  Tiger devises a plan to burn the refinery in order to reach Abu Usman at the hospital as an injured patients.  His Raw agents adopt a ploy to poison the food for Abu Usman accomplices in order to curb them.  However, Abu Usman manages to capture Zoya and subsequently Tiger when he sees that Zoya is in trouble.  Abu Usman tortures them both but Tiger shows his strength and fights out his way out of the trouble and manages to injure AbuUsman by stabbing him when the heavy fight ensues between them.  He then soon manages to reach hostage nurses location and rescues them with the help of ISI and RAW agents.  Firdauz overpowers the injured Abu Usman and takes him to deserted place where he shoots him.  After completing the mission successfully, Tiger and Zoya again go undercover after ensuring the RAW Senior Office Shenoy that he will be available for any mission to serve his country.
