Bharat Movie Review: This year Salman Khan has given the perfect Eid gift for his fans in the form of Bharat. A character who is endearing and honest, a character who is relatable and touches the heart of his fans. This character stays with them long after the movie ends. Bharat revolves around several aspects of life and those small little things which make it beautiful. Directed by Ali Abbas Zafar, Bharat talks about ‘change, hope and positivity’ required in this journey called life. Salman Khan's character Bharat’s different phases of life have been portrayed beautifully. While Salman is at the center-stage of this drama, Sunil Grover raises the bar for himself and Katrina Kaif yet again impresses us with her grace. Bharat is a good amalgamation of emotions and humour with tadka of Salman Khan-moments. Overall, the movie has its heart at the right place and is indeed, 'Journey of a man and a nation together'.

The film straight away takes us to 2010 with glimpses of Salman Khan (Bharat), who is in his 70s. Bharat, who is living with his family narrates his emotional childhood tale to them including his grandchildren. Back in 1947 at the time of India Pakistan partition, the bloodbath left a major impact on Bharat’s life. Those memories haunt him till this age, eventually motivating him to search for his lost father, Jackie Shroff and little sister.

The first half of the movie  is solid and not even for a fraction of second you will lose the grip. It has the power to hold you tight to its plot and progress. Salman Khan’s dialogues are worth remembering. A very special dialogue ‘Sher Budha Hua Hai Magar Shikar Karna Nahi Bhula’ sums up how Salman Khan always manages to impress his audience.

Bharat stands up for right and what is morally correct. He is a man of sacrifices who can stake his own happiness to keep others happy. He has focussed on things like the importance of cleanliness in the society. In fact, the very famous concept of Change has been the highlight of the movie. How his different roles require him to change and adapt to the situations summarise, ‘What Change actually is!’ In fact, Bharat also focuses on the need for hope and dreams in life. Salman Khan in the movie has been sustaining only in the hope of meeting his father and it kept him alive.

The movie is well directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. On one hand, the movie introduces us to some heart-breaking emotional scenes and on the other hand, it lightens our mood with good comic punches. Thus, the movie mixes the emotions and humour quotient in a beautiful way.

 Salman Khan will be seen performing stunts on the bike and in some fight scenes too. His muscles and shirtless look (though not complete) will make you whistle the loudest. Salman Khan is seen switching jobs to earn money for his family. He works in The Great Russian Circus, Oil Refinery, Merchant Navy to save money for the sake of his family.

Sunil Grover (Vilayati Khan) needs a special mention as he has shown his versatility on the big screen. His bond with Bharat is unbreakable and above all the fancies of life. He stands with Bharat like his shadow to fight all odds and thus stole our heart.

In fact, Katrina Kaif has improved so much on her dialect that for she delivered her dialogues with ease and so much perfection. She has been shown as a strong-willed, brave girl who knows how to stand for oneself. Also, with minimal makeup in her young look, she looks extremely beautiful. Katrina Kaif will be seen in her old look too and justifies it.

The second half untangles the puzzle.  The movie takes us to Attari Station, Wagah Border, Middle East, Malta, Delhi, Lahore. Special mention of Megastar Amitabh Bachchan, King of Bollywood Shah Rukh Khan, God of cricket Sachin Tendulkar and former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, makes the movie star-studded.

Talking about the music of the movie, it is indeed a treat to ears. Songs like Zinda, Turpeya, Slow Motion, Aithey Aa, Chashni will make you hum to their tunes. Disha Patani looks sizzling dancing alongside Salman Khan in Slow Motion. Also, Nora Fatehi, as usual, brings a breath of fresh air.

Concluding we can say; Bharat is the best gift by Salman Khan to his fans so far. Right from the storyline, plot, direction, music, and emotions, the movie stands at the top. (Also read Bharat movie Review in Hindi)
