Tubelight is going to be a tearjerker, that’s what everyone involved in the project is promising us. We have every reason to believe them, because this is nearly the same team that gave us Bajrangi Bhaijaan, and we all know how many people left the theatres teary-eyed. First of all, Tubelight is an official remake of the Hollywood movie Little Boy, which in itself had a tear-jerker premise (though it didn’t work at the box office). Secondly, director Kabir Khan is known to extract the best performance out of Salman Khan in his movies, and we are sure that the third time is always the charm. Above all, the man himself, Salman Khan, has revealed that he had to cry for real in certain scenes and that the audience is definitely going to cry more than him while watching the movie in the latest making of the movie video.
The said video, which you can watch below, gives us an insight into Salman’s character, Laxman Singh Bisht, and why he (and the movie) is called Tubelight. Before they get into that, the video opens with a dictionary being shown open and the page with the letter ‘T’ is displayed. For some reason, ‘Tubelight’ is on the first page itself, and it has no mention about the actual electrical device; instead referring to the slang use of the word (a person who is slow in learning and understanding). In the legendary words of Chennai Express’ Meenamma, we ask this to the makers, ‘kahan se laayi aisa bokwaas dictionary?’ Jokes apart, both the director and the star reveal how emotional an experience the movie and the character of Laxman is. It’s here that Salman reveals that the movie has an excellent script and he had to shed real tears while filming the emotional scenes. He guarantees his fans that they will also be crying for real after watching the movie.
Here’s the video…
I was also intrigued, in the video, watching a couple of scenes, where Salman is being seen training with other soldiers in the army camp. Though the trailer only showed his brother, played by Sohail Khan, inducted in the army, what’s Salman’s character doing there? Hmm… let’s wait till June 23 to know the answer, when Tubelight releases at a theatre near us.
