Sometimes you ask yourself a question that why did you watch a specific movie! It may have a lot of loopholes, it may give you a lot of deja vu feelings, it may look stupid at points, but at the same time you found it entertaining in pieces too! Kick is one such movie.

The interesting part of the movie comes in second half and you may end thinking that it could have been an interesting movie, if it was started from the interval!!! The pre-interval segment is strictly for Salman khan fans who love everything he does. He was though able show some sparkles of acting in various scenes of first segment too. The use of animation is interesting. Mithun’s character is tailor made for him and he does justice to it.
Apart from the original Telugu film of the same name (which is remade as this film in Hindi), you can find traces of several other Hindi and Foreign films while watching Kick.
You also wonder that how an intelligent cop like Himanshu doesn’t doubt the antagonist despite of meeting him? Well, of course he hadn’t seen him earlier, but he have heard his voice (pure, non-manipulated); and usually such bright cops have the senses to catch it. Also, how Zumkhi’s parent could be helpful to her by committing suicide? But forget such things, there are tons of such things in the film. What you can count for in the film is the entertainment. It has almost all the aspect of a commercial film and it works in favor of it.
In terms of acting, Nawazudding Siddiqui is the top performer. He is excellent and proves his metal again. Seems that he is going to get versatile roles like Naseeruddin Shah in his career. Salman Khan is in full form also. There are several scenes where you cannot do anything but praise his acting abilities. He can make even the stupid things look charming. Randeep is bankable and he does what he have to, convincingly.
Jackqueline should be happy to get a comparatively better role. She however looked the most beautiful in her debut movie, looks charming in the movie at various places in de-glam role. There are places where you find her unconvincing as well. But, she tried well. Mithun slips-in into the role easily. Saurabh Shukla and Sanjai Mishra leaves their impact in the small roles they have, with stunning performances.
The background music is a positive point of this movie, same we can say for the cinematography. Also the thief of the movie is intelligent enough to not to write message in “Hindi” when robbing into foreign country (read, like Dhoom:3). He however makes mistake but accepts them as well. The scriptwriting is good in that terms. But as said earlier, the first half of the movie could have been a lot better.
There are loopholes in the story as the matter of fact but people who watch it for fun only tends to avoid criticizing those (Remember Dhoom:3 and even Dhoom:2?). Rather they enjoy it. A few songs comes at the place where they affect the pace of the film. They are comparatively good to hear, but slows down the film. The item song is unnecessary.
The action sequences are filmed pretty well. The money and efforts spent filming them is seen clearly on the screen. The movie is a visual treat at places.
- The movie was in talks of being directed by A. R. Murugadoss, Shirish Kunder and later producer Sajid himself have directed it.
- For the lead role the names of Ileana D’Cruz, Deepika Padukne, Anushka Sharma, Sonakshi Sinha, Priyanka Chopra, Angela Johnson were also in the news, the role ultimately went to Jackqueline.
- Abhijat Joshi (the writer of Munnabhai series) was also approached for the script of the film but ultimately Chetan Bhagat wrote for the film.
The story of the movie is something like this:
Shaina and Himanshu meet over a train as per the pre-planned arrangement by Shaina, her family and Himanshu. Shaina’s father was finding a groom for her and Himanshu is a perfect choice as per his opinion, so he wanted to give them a chance to share time and see if they are compatible with each other. Over the trip, Shaina reveals a tragedy (she calls it so) of her life, to Himanshu; and thus we got to know the story of a happy-go-lucky, carefree, intelligent, goal-less guy, Devi Lal Singh.
Himanshu also reveals that he is after a thief named Devil. He is the only criminal who outsmarted him and his mission is to catch him. Devil interestingly robs millions of rupees from the people associated with Shiv Gajra, the nephew of Home Minister. He hatches a plan to trap Devil.
How these tales bumps into each other and moves forward is the rest of the movie.
If you start watching the movie around interval, then also you will not miss anything (apart from a couple of performance packed scenes). Even the main villain enters into the story after the interval. If you watch it only for time pass, you may find it paisa vasool. You surely end up wishing that if it could have been better script, the film would be much much better.
