Critic reviews and ratings

  • ...is a high-octane masala entertainer that stays true to its genre.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the storyline needed to be far more compelling and the editing much tauter. Needless to add, a lot of sequences defy logic, but at the same time, there are many moments that will leave Salman Khan and action film fans impressed.

    Critic rating (?)

  • It may look like a Hollywood action thriller, but at its heart, Tiger Zinda Hai is an unabashed masala movie.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Apart from the well organized fight sequences, the movie is a step ahead from the original in offering pure thrills uninterrupted by any songs.

  • Director Ali Abbas Zafar who got Khan to ditch his effortless stardom and sink into the mind and body of a Haryanvi wrestler in Sultan, is sharp and effective in assembling this war thriller, while also packing in sufficient masala for the Indian palette.

  • Go watch Tiger Zinda Hai if you're a fan of large-scale action entertainers, with probably just the right amount of logic. Salman Khan has well and truly arrived (again) with a potential blockbuster that has enough to keep you pinned. Good fun while it lasts.

  • ...won't disappoint you. After 'Sultan', Salman Khan and Ali Abbas Zafar pack a solid punch yet again.

    Critic rating (?)

  • Don't analyse, don't nitpick, don't involve logic; and you are sorted. There are many seeti-worthy moments in Tiger Zinda Hai. The film plays to Salman's gallery to the T.

    Critic rating (?)

  • This is a full-on masala entertainer and seeing the way the people bajaoed ceeties and taalis whenever Salman came on screen, the superstar has a winner with this one.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is way too long at 2 hours and 41 minutes, but it packs some thrilling action and a beloved leading man presented in just the manner that the fans seem to want to see him.

    Critic rating (?)

  • I think I just found my guilty pleasure film of 2017; right at the end of the year.

    59

    Critic rating (?)

  • I’d enjoyed the first one while it lasted. I had fun in this one too, once I got past the whole ‘Come Children, Let’s Make A Spy Story For You’ explanatory mode of the flick, directed this time by Ali Abbas Zafar.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is exactly the movie you wanted to associate Salman Khan with, so no disappointments on that front.

    Critic rating (?)

  • At an exhausting two hours and forty minutes, I really don't care if Tiger is alive or a vegetable - whether he's Zinda or Tinda, really - but this film needed to be much tighter.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • The regular action fare – nothing more than you expect but nothing less either.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Salman Khan fans will love the action-packed corny cheese fest that makes for a decent if predictable watch.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...is flat out exhausting. The story is much too long and convoluted. The frame is filled with characters but apart from Tiger, none of them make an impact. And for me, the weakest link is that there is nothing that moors you emotionally. 

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • If you can see Tiger Zinda Hai for what it is, you too may not mind its unabashed blend of swag, silliness and schmaltz.

    49

    Critic rating (?)

  • Undeniably impressive in terms of its scale and flawless technical attributes, Tiger Zinda Hai is an exercise that rings utterly hollow. Its surface nous cannot conceal the sheer purposeless of all the noise it generates.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...at 160 plus minutes, this movie is more than a bit of a stretch (both literally, and figuratively).

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...bombastic, uninspired...

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • The explosive Khan-Kaif combination turns out to be a damp squib, undone by staggering ambition and matching incompetence.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Safe idealism or simply phony, you decide if you intend to endure 161 minutes of this toothless, tiring, plastic Tiger Zzzzzinda Hai.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • A tired, exhausting actioner with incredibly uninspired writing.
