Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif's most-awaited movie of the year Tiger Zinda Hai is just two days away from release. While the advance bookings are on in full swing, here are five reasons to watch the movie in theatres.
1. Salman Khan
Salman Khan is undoubtedly the first reason to watch this movie in theatres. After the debacle of Tubelight, the Dabangg Khan is back in his action-packed hero avatar where he will be seen kicking butt, performing high-octane action sequences and delivering one-liners the way masses want to see him on screen.
The superstar has a record of hits whenever he was seen doing an action film, like Wanted, Kick and Ek Tha Tiger, which glorified his machismo on screen. For fans, there can't be any good reason to watch this Tiger aka Avinash Singh Rathore back on the big screen.
2. Katrina Kaif
Katrina Kaif is another reason to watch Tiger Zinda Hai in theatres, because the actress will be seen doing action sequences in a film after two years. She has been prepping hard for her role, wielding swords, using a machine gun and learning high flying manoeuvres while taking on multiple enemies. She will be seen reprising the role of Pakistani spy Zoya in the sequel.
3. Salman and Katrina Chemistry
There can't be any better reason than watching two ex-lovers romancing and battling enemies shoulder to shoulder. One of the most famous off-screen and on-screen couples, Salman and Katrina have never failed to impress with their sizzling chemistry. And when two hotties come together, the screen will be undoubtedly set ablaze.
4. Never-seen-before action
If you have seen the trailer, you must have noticed the action sequences that have been never seen before in a Bollywood film. And the reason is that Hollywood action directors Tom Struthers and Buster Reeves, who have choreographed action sequences in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Rises, have been closely working on the stunts and the action scenes of the film.
Unlike any other Bollywood movie, Tiger Zinda Hai promises to keep you on the edge of your seats with some crashing helicopters, horses, tanks, big weapons and a whole army, military backdrop.
The movie is inspired by real-life events when India's diplomatic corps with some possible help from the intelligence agencies pulled off the secretive rescue of 46 Indian nurses who had been taken hostage by the Islamic State group in Iraq.
In the movie, Tiger attempts to rescue 25 Indian nurses held captive by a terrorist organisation in Iraq.
5. Ali Abbas Zafar
The Sultan director has left no stone unturned while shooting the film. Movie sets were constructed in Austria, Greece, Morocco and Abu Dhabi (where a major part of the film was shot) apart from India, and they turned into pitstops for the entire cast and crew.
The countries' landscapes and topographies bring a certain texture to the action sequences. The long and occassional close-up shots are one of the highlights of the movie, and can only be experienced well in theatres.
Salman's festive releases have always raked in the moolah at the box office. Thus, Tiger Zinda Hai is expected to strike gold and receive maximum footfalls on its opening day on December 22.
