A Must-Watch!

I know Salman Khan has a loyal fan base; however, sometimes, his movies can be larger than life with too many over-the-top fight sequences. As such, it was really nice to see him in a non-traditional, subtle role in Bajrangi Bhaijaan, which he portrayed very wellDirected by Kabir Khan and written by V. Vijayendra Prasad, the film portrays the story of a young, mute Pakistani girl, who gets separated from her mother and ends up in India. She runs into Bajrangi, a very honest and somewhat naive man, played by Salman Khan, who takes her home in order to help her get reunited with her family. After many failed attempts, he decides to embark on a journey to Pakistan to take her home himself.

Nawazuddin Siddiqui as the reporter, who accompanies and helps Bajrangi in his mission and Kareena Kapoor, who plays his love interest, gave really good supporting performances. However, Harshaali Malhotra, who plays the Pakistani girl, definitely stole the show! She was so adorably cute!

The movie was touching and heart-warming with the backdrop of the well-known rivalry between the two nations of India and Pakistan. I hope Salman Khan continues to play such subtle roles and such films continue to be made with the hope that they will help cause unity between the two nations.
