Story: The movie is inspired by a real-life story of the rescue of Indian nurses held hostage by ISIS. The two undercover spies – Tiger played by Salman Khan and Zoya Katrina Kaif go on an insane mission to save 40 nurses (25 Indian and 15 Pakistani) hijacked by terrorists.
But will they be able to save them or will they die during the mission?
The movie picks up from where the first film Ek Tha Tiger left off. Indian RAW agent Tiger (Salman Khan) and ISI agent Zoya (Katrina Kaif) are married and living a peaceful life with their son named Junior. Eight long years have gone by since Tiger, Zoya choose love over their missions. And for the first time in Bollywood, Pakistan's ISI and India's RAW come together for one deadly mission.
Thanks to the crisis, Tiger's ex-boss Shenoy (Girish Karnad) tracks him down and wants him to rescue 25 Indian nurses who are held hostage at a hospital by a terrorist organisation that has taken over Iraq. The film is visually stunning in parts and Salman plays Tiger with roaring confidence and dialogues packed with punch.
The role of a terrorist Abu Usman is played by the talented UAE-based Iranian actor Sajjad Delafrooz. A professor turned cold-blooded terrorist, Sajjad's confession towards the end that 'terrorism is a business' adds gravity to his role and as a performer, he is set to stay in the hearts of audience much after the movie is over.
Paresh Rawal and Salman Khan's combination is a treat to watch. The supporting cast Angad Bedi and Kumud Mishra too are successful in making their presence felt.
A few dialogues in the movie will leave a mark in your mind like “Shikaar toh sab karte hai. Lekin Tiger se behtaar shikaar koi nahin karta.” and 'Sher abhi soya hai, poonchh math kheechna nahin toh, kaat khayega'
Your paisa gets vasool when Salman Khan's sheds his shirt in one sequence.
Well scripted well shot and engaging, Tiger Zinda Hai is a good watch and a very entertaining film. The movie will keep you glued to your seats until the end.
