This Eid again, Salman brings to his fans his next big film- Bharat. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, this film is an adaptation of the Korean film Ode To My Father. The multi-starrer film has hit the screens which also stars Katrina Kaif, Sunil Grover, Jackie Shroff, Sonali Kulkarni, Disha Patani, and Nora Fatehi among others.
After the previous two blockbusters Sultan and Tiger Zinda Hai, Bharat happens to be Salman and Ali’s third collaboration.
Story about a man and a nation who share a name, Bharat, this movie quickly plunges us into a flashback of Bharat’s life adventures. It begins with a heart wrenching incident from partition that separates a family paving way for Bharat’s arrival at his aunt’s house.
Along his journey, he meets Vilayati (Sunil Grover) and they both set off to unexpected adventures. In one of the excursions, he meets Kumud Raina (Katrina Kaif) or ‘madam-sir’. The role of Bharat’s father, the stationmaster of Mirzapur, is played by Jackie shroff.
Salman Khan tries his best to play his various avatars. At 20, he brings the circus and its Maut Ka Kuwa . At 30, he is in the Middle East, rescuing people from near-certain death and romancing his Madam-Sir. He is then winning over Somali sea pirates with Amitabh Bachchan songs when not dancing in Punjabi in the streets of Malta. Katrina Kaif gets the meatiest role of her Salman-Khan-film-career. That crown of perm in place, Katrina's hard work is visible in Bharat.
In the end, it doesn't matter who wins - the actor or the star - Bharat is a full-on crowd pleaser for the massive fan base out there seeking recompense for the Tubelight and Race 3 reverses.
