Director Ali Abbas Zafar's Hindi movie Bharat featuring Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif in the lead roles, has struck a chord with the audience around the world and received positive review and rating from them.

Bharat is an action drama film, which has been written and directed by Ali Abbas Zafar. Atul Agnihotri, Alvira Khan Agnihotri, Bhushan Kumar, Krishan Kumar, Nikhil Namit and Salman Khan have jointly produced it under the banners Reel Life Productions, Salman Khan Films and T-Series. The film has got a U/A certificate from the censor board and its runtime is 2.35 hours.

Bharat movie story: The film revolves around the story of an 8-year-old boy named Bharat, who promises to his father to keep his family together. How he struggles hard to keep his promise for the next 60 years, facing a new set of challenges each decade, forms the crux of the movie. His resilience, loyalty and a never dying spirit mirrors the fundamental qualities of our nation Bharat.

Analysis: Ali Abbas Zafar has chosen an amazing subject for Bharat, which is an emotional journey of a man and a nation together. The director has tried hard to make the film entertaining and engaging. But it is dragging in parts and also its narration appears to be lengthy. However, it is better than Bajarangi Bhaijaan, say the audience.

Performance: Salman Khan has delivered a brilliant performance, which is the highlight of Bharat. Katrina Kaif has good scope for acting and she has done justice to it. Her chemistry with Salman is one of the attractions of the movie. Tabu, Disha Patani, Sunil Grover and Jackie Shroff have done good jobs and they are also among the assets of the film, say the viewers.

#Bharat 1st half - Packaged as a family entertainer with lotsa sentiments, drama & other usual commercial elements. Fairly engaging so far.. It's Bharat's grt long journey spanning many decades and locations; he narrates his story to a young kid in his family.. #Bharat 1st half - @BeingSalmanKhan showcases his unique histrionics & macho screen presence. Gutsy enough to play an old man @DishPatani sizzles in a cameo (circus scenes & 'Slow Motion' song); she looks spectacularly . 'Madam Sir' #KatrinaKaif is good #Bharat 2nd half - Turns excess melodramatic, with tear-jerking family reunion scenes and repetitive sentiments. Starts dragging beyond a point.. Might appeal to the family crowd in mass centers & the aged audience.. The 1st half was more entertaining and engaging.. #Bharat -Nowhere near the levels of #SalmanKhan's blockbuster movies over the past few yrs. But far better than Race3! #Bhai has catered this one to the family audiences & fans of slow, melodramatic, sentimental family dramas. His character graph is extensive with many makeovers #Bharat - Very close to @BeingSalmanKhan's real life image as a man who is very attached and close to his parents & siblings. He's the ultimate family man! The director plays on this image & delivers a 'soap opera' on a big grand scale from pre-partition days to the current era.

First half of the film is excellent, Second half is slow but towards the end in last 30 mins is Fantastic, film will leave you with tears in your eyes & smile on your face. Katrina , Sunil grover delivers brilliant performance. Story, screenplay & cinematography top notch. BLOCKBUSTER. #Bharat is MARVELLOUS , Salman best film after BB this decade. Superbly executed journey of a man & a nation blended with clap worthy dialogues, humorous & emotional moments. Salman shines specially in emotional scenes, Ali Zafar direction is Superlative. Bharat .Rating-⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

#MovieReview: #Bharat @BeingSalmanKhan's BHARAT is a good family entertainer & has enough meat to make a strong impact at box office. Its high on emotion & drama, adequate humour & romance. However editing could have been better, the only loophole that sometimes mar the impact.

#Bharat has been seen. Loved a @BeingSalmanKhan film after Bajrangi Bhaijaan. Emotions are strong and my eyes got moist atleast 2-3 times. Just wanted to go and hug Bharat at that time.

#Bharat BLOCKBUSTER. #BharatReview out of 5 @aliabbaszafar and producers @atulreellife and @nikhilnamit have outdone themselves! To weave history with emotions, drama & action. #KatrinaKaif looks stunning! A true Indian beauty..@BeingSalmanKhan Sir as usual 1 man army.

#Bharat Interval First half = TERRIFIC The blockbuster Jodi of @BeingSalmanKhan & @aliabbaszafar is back with the bang. #Bharat One word review : Masterpiece The emotional plot and story is the USP of this movie. It is a perfect emotional movie with the right dose of entertainment. Superb work by @BeingSalmanKhan. Especially his old age character. He is the soul of this movie! (4.5/5)
