TUBELIGHT Trailer: Oh Nothing, Just A Bollywood Remake Of LITTLE BOY With A Grown Ass Man Playing The Kid

I wasn't going to touch this, because I have less than zero interest in the work of Bollywood superstar Salman Khan, but it's too ridiculous to pass up.

Do you remember the film Little Boy from 2015? In that film, one of the more recent fauth based dramas that have made a mainstream comeback over the last few years, a young boy's prayers to bring his father home from World War II lead to the atomic bombs that ended the war and the lives of hundreds of thousands of Japanese civilians. Well, it's getting a Bollywood remake later this summer.

Tubelight is actor Salman Khan's third collaboration with director Kabir Khan (no relation), and reframes Little Boy from the second World War to the 1962 Sino-Indian war. Rather than a child willing the war to stop via the most destructive weapons ever used in combat, this time it's a 55 year old simpleton leading the charge.

This movie is going to be so bad and it's going to make a bajillion dollars.

Just as the Bollywood film industry is recovering from the sobering reality that a south Indian film, the magnificent juggernaut that is Baahubali 2, has just rewritten all of the box office records in the space of less than a week, we get teh first look at what it likely to be the next contender to the throne. Salman Khan's films are a force of nature at the box office, and his Eid holiday releases over the last decade or so have routinely broken collection records irrespective of quality. I can't see that train slowing down anytime soon, especially since Salman as a simpleton has proven to be a bankable element in the past - see Bajrangi Bhaijaan.

I will not see this film, and this trailer just makes that commitment I've made to myself easier to stand by. Judge for yourself.

Can't agree more. But sadly Salman khan playing a do gooder appeals to kids and moms in India. I hope this one tanks and they stop making movies like this.

I have personal ethical qualms about supporting Salman Khan as well, but they are trumped by the fact that he's a terrible actor

You mean Tubelight will copy little boy by ending the war using massive weapon? What a misleading comment you have made. I really do not know why you want to mislead the audience and what profit you will get. Tubelight is different from little boy because Salman will spread love to India and China while little boy use A-bomb

The film little boy misinterpreted the meaning of faith. That is why Salman and Kabir make another story based on little boy to tell the world the correct meaning of faith. Faith is not the massive weapon to end the war.Faith is the love to bring harmony to the world.It is so important to make a new film to correct the wrong idea in little boy

I support Tubelight because the faith means love rather than A-bomb. Tubelight promotes the love and harmony and it is a perfect correction for the ideology in little boy. It makes sense to make this movie based little boy but correct the interpretation of faith in little boy

Jia FeiMay 6, 2017 11:06 AM

Come on man, you do not support the idea in Tubelight that the love could stop the war? Are you sitll a human being? You are a big supporter of A-bomb?

Little Boy was a deeply unsettling movie, made all the more unsettling by people's love for it. 7.4 on IMDb.

I would've been much more excited if this was a Bollywood version of Oldboy instead of Little Boy.

J HurtadoMay 9, 2017 1:02 PM

Been there, done that:

But where's the singing and dancing? I already feel ripped off by this rip-off...
