Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif’s return falters in Maneesh Sharma-directed Tiger 3, with an underwhelming villain act by Emraan Hashmi
Story of Tiger 3:
Salman Khan’s Tiger and Katrina Kaif’s Zoya have returned to defend their country and those they love, and this time the struggle is personal for them both.
Tiger 3 analysis:
The main flaw in Maneesh Sharma’s 2016 film FAN was the chase scene in the latter half of the movie. Tiger 3, the least strong movie in the YRF Spy Universe, still contains the flaw. The tale, which started in 2012 with Ek Tha Tiger, was about a couple of spies who fell in love and left aside their jobs as spies for India and Pakistan.
However, the 2017 sequel, Tiger Zinda Hai, brought them back to their national duties without any lament, touting that there are no better agents in India’s R&AW and Pakistan’s ISI. This time, Tiger 3 gets on a personal mission, and so does Zoya, but still, the story is more about Salman Khan’s Tiger than anyone else.
To begin with, the title of Tiger 3 alludes to careless work in which no effort has been made to suggest a continuing tale, following in the footsteps of Ek Tha Tiger and Tiger Zinda Hai. The germ of Aditya Chopra’s story then carried on the laziness, exhibiting severe signs of Pathaan withdrawal. The antagonist’s origin appears to be similar because it appears that Shridhar Raghavan wrote both the supplementary screenplay for Pathaan and the script for Tiger 3 at the same time.
However, while Jim (John Abraham) in Pathaan was a dark and fashionable antagonist, Aatish Rehman (Emraan Hashmi) in Tiger 3 is mostly focused on becoming a parody of a typical antagonist from the neighboring nation. The actor has the most slow-motion scenes, including ones in which he walks like Severus Snape from Harry Potter while wearing all-black clothing, and even while he is flashing his teeth.
Tiger 3’s assessment: It’s really difficult to follow the jump cuts and determine when year the story is taking place. Although Tiger 3 was supposed to take place after Tiger Zinda Hai, War, and Pathaan, it instead takes place in the pre-Ek Tha Tiger era, which only serves to cause further confusion. Every time the scene shifts, pay close attention to the down-left side corner since you are both in the past and a different country.
