Technically Strong but disappoints in plot and Honesty, 23 June 2017
Author: kishordeoras from Mumbai

Being Salman Khan comes with a responsibility, sometimes that turns into : i'll do anything and fans will still watch. The original movie LITTLE BOY is so honest as we can believe a small childs fantasies and innocence. but tube light seems like forced. the easiest way to gain sympathy is by showing the protagonist as a non matured kid, innocent and childlike. we have had a long history of that in bollywood, gain sympathy by showing some rare disease (pa, guzarish, barfi) or show non realistic themes.

locations and cinematography is wonderful, so is the other cast. Om puri and the little child. rest it just feels like a safe bet by kabir khan, put a goody goody world and ppl will grab it.

of course one can't argue with salman fans as they get personal in case anyone criticises the movie. how ever it's more important to understand who exactly are they helping in this case, their IQ or Salman Khan
