Kick: Na dil mein aaye Na smaajh mein!!

And here the Rajnism continues…
Salman Khan (Devilal a.k.a. Devil) is an exceptionally talented super-hero who constantly needs 'Kick' to keep himself going. Salman, as usual, gets his big bang signature Dhamaka entry which rightfully deserves a whistle or two. But the one which takes your heart away (If you are a Rajini fan, of course) is the most popular stunt on the show in which Salman crosses a super slow running train on a bicycle. There are many such unbelievable (some called it stupid while the movie was going on) action stunts which I am not sure to just watch, enjoy or get frustrated by. Take your own call I suggest.

The movie opens in Poland, where a pretty psychiatrist Shaina (Jacqueline) is forced by her diplomat dad (Saurabh Shukla) and grandmother to meet a potential groom, hot Inspector Himanshu (Randeep), who goes there in the chase of the Devil. In their first meet, in a train journey in Warsaw, Shaina shares her story of heart break by her ex-boyfriend Devilal and Himanshu about his enemy for life Devil. Apparently both are aware of Devi’s “Kick” factor, but no-one chooses to recognize that they both are talking about the same person. Isn’t it debutant director Sajid Nadiadwala's mistake to consider his audience stupid?

Superhero Devilal’s journey from a Chandni Chowk lad Devi Lal Singh, who wanders about searching for kicks to the Devil is quite predictable and forced. His father (Mithun Chakraborty) was a character seems to be added for humor, but I wonder if getting sloshed over alcohol is considered humor these days? If there is anyone worth watching in the movie, it has to be Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who played as Shiv Gajra, criminal head of a charitable trust. There are a few scenes where Siddiqui actually steals the show even from the Khan. But unfortunately he is not in the screen long enough.

Even the song sequences could not interest us much. They are in the movie for no reason and aren’t one to be appreciated as well. Jacqueline, undoubtedly, was better than Nargis Fakhri in the item song Marjava.

What I take away from the movie is disappointment and headache. For Salman Khan Fans that should be good enough. Just a minute! Did I mention that Rajat Kapoor is also there in the movie? Yes, he is and I wonder why?
