album is quite appealing one as well with Sohail Sen and Sajid-Wajid being associated with it. The favorites here include 'Mashallah', 'Banjara' and 'Laapata'. Stunts and action sequences in the movie are quite capturing with chases you may have never seen before. Dialogues are witty and sharp.
The story is on track all the time only it slows down in the first hour as the love story begins. However the overall performance here of Salman and Katrina is quite wonderful that you may not mind watching this leisurely unfolding of the story.
Salman playing the Tiger here is quite convincing and the makers doesn't have to put too much of efforts to make it look real. Salman already enjoys the reputation of being a Tiger in cinema with wonderful presence on the screen and through his flawless performances in movies. This time again, he proves to be lavish in his character with complete justification done to the role he portrays. He adds in immense energy to the movie. Further beauty is added by the electrifying chemistry between Salman and Katrina in the movie. Katrina's role has its own meat and she delivers perfectly each and every part.
