So, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is Salman Khan‘s most daring film where Salman presents a beautiful performance, For days social media was buzzed and expectations were raised, and Bhaijaan has not disappointed. The entire movie is an epitome of positivity. The story is presented flawlessly and the message that the director and the makers are willing to shower has blossomed and come out gorgeously from the entire narration. The aspect of the Hindu-Muslim prejudice that exists in both the countries is handled delicately which is truly appreciable.

The story is of a little girl from Pakistan, Shahida (Harshaali Malhotra) who cannot speak. She comes to India with her mother, but gets left behind. In India she meets Pawan Kumar Chaturvedi aka Bajrangi (Salman Khan) who is a simple man and a die-hard ‘Hanuman Bhakt’. Bajrangi develops a soft corner for the lost girl and starts calling her Munni. Along with his love interest Rasika, played by Kareena Kapoor, they try to find out where exactly is Munni’s home. Facing borders and biases, lacking a visa, called a spy, can Bajrangi get Munni home – and return to India himself?

The narration and the storytelling is fantastically done that maintains the grip throughout. The background score and the camera work is exceptional. The execution of the script by the director is just right. The writing is something which makes this film magical.

Salman Khan made the most intelligent and apt debut as a producer with this film. Salman’s movies usually feature larger than life action and drama but with this film, the actor shines as a performer. His role is more of a simple, down to earth guy who has a humble personality which he portrays beautifully. Nawazuddin Siddiqui delivers a natural and realistic performance. He was funny, quirky and simply flawless as a Pakistani journalist. Kareena Kapoor as Rasika just perfectly fits the bill and does full justice to her role. Though she has fairly less number of sequences, still she manages to make her presence felt. The little girl Harshaali is an angel. She brilliantly essays her part of a mute girl with ease.

The songs in the movie are not all that great with the exception of the qawwali, ‘Bhar do jholi meri‘ by Adnan Sami, which is soulful and gives you goosebumps. No, you wont get ‘Dabangg’ dialogues from this movie, but you’ll definitely be touched by the scenes. The film carries the message of social responsibility and humanity before religion and boundaries. What makes it even more perfect is that the last twenty minutes of the movie have been shot in the mesmerizing valley of Kashmir.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a must watch and a movie that leaves you with an optimistic and pure feeling.  It is a complete family entertainer and the little Harshaali earns all the extra brownie points.
