There once was a time when a new Salman Khan movie was a thing to get excited for.
Unfortunately, Sallu has been out of the limelight for a little while and his last foray into the world of Bollywood blockbusters, Jai Ho, was roundly beaten by critics, though embraced by fans. This time around, Salman is back in the saddle, taking his more comfortable seat as the king of Eid openings with Kick, a remake of a 2009 Telugu film starring Tollywood's action comedy hero, Ravi Teja.
With Salman out of the running for last year's Eid, the holiday was ceded to Rohit Shetty and Shah Rukh Khan's ode to, well, Shah Rukh Khan, Chennai Express. This year, Salman looks to retake the crown he held for the previous five Eid holidays with Kick.
The trailer has plenty of explosions, awkward dancing from Salman, a ridiculously hot and unreal looking nerdy Jacqueline Fernandes, and punch dialogues, but that's not why I'm posting this. The trailer, which features Salman Khan in a ridiculous Krrish-like mask as a character called "Devil", also features India's greatest working character actor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui in the role of Salman's antagonist. This marks Nawaz's highest profile role in a film yet. Siddiqui is the king of the Indian indie film scene, and stars in Miss Lovely, which gets a limited opening in the US this weekend, and had a minor supporting role in Aamir Khan's Talaash, but he is in the trailer for Kick, so he must be somebody...
I had written Kick off until he showed up in the trailer, now I'm making plans to see it ASAP. See what you think in the trailer below.
