Review Bharat & earn 20 DM Points.*

There is no other way to describe this film except to say that it is an almost perfect Hindi masala movie having all the components that make such a film which are action, music, dance, family emotions, in the usual proportions. This film is also an out and out Salman product by Salman for his fans and also for general audiences who are bound to leave the theatre more than satisfied. And as the film's earnings go past 100 crores it brings up the usual paradox that a film not liked by critics will invariably do well commercially. Can't blame film makers for catering to the masses and not bothering about a handful of critics who will run down the film. Also such films which do not bother about things like laws of physics and credibility please the masses no end. So we have a 70 plus Salman bashing up 4 ruthless bikers in his typical style. As for glamour, Salman has two heroines, Disha Patni and Katrina Kaif who are attractive and do their dance moves well. The locations vary from a town in Pakistan to Delhi to the Gulf countries to Malta to the high seas ( pirates) to the ground depths ( mining) to a circus etc etc. The makers have left no stone unturned to provide entertainment to the masses whether it is a joker of a merchant navy Captain ( Satish Kaushik) or a Amitabh Bacchan loving Somali sea pirate or a dancing diva Katrina head over heels in love with Salman. There is enough of tear jerking scenes of relatives lost during partition and maybe there is a lesson for the govt for cross border information exchange better late than never.
The movie rides exclusively on the broad shoulders of Salman Khan as he goes through the entire range of emotions from age 25 to age 70 where only his hair turn salt and pepper while brawn and gait remain the same. That's value for money for you.
To hell with the so called realistic artistically formatted serious cinema. Let such cinema be shown in film festivals for the pleasure of critics and highbrow audiences. What this country needs is clean escapist entertainment on Sunday afternoon for family audiences and if it conveys a social message, or suggests a social reform, it is a bonus.
