We are just two weeks away as the Bollywood superstar Salman Khan is set to kick-start this Eid season with the forthcoming action romantic-comedy film ‘Kick’, releasing on 25th July 2014 through UTV Motion Pictures. Billed as an awesome, roller-coaster ride ofaction, intrigue, suspense and romance, Salman Khan leads an impressive ensemble cast in this high-octane, action rom-com.
The intriguing story takes as its core premise a man’s desire to live life to the full and get a ‘kick’ out of every opportunity that comes his way. Salman Khan plays the character of ‘Devil’, an adrenaline junkie who is addicted to risk, be it in his job or in his personal life. His many misguided and miscreant acts culminate in him becoming a thief and dicing with the law in a dangerous and daring game. What ensues is a cat-and-mouse style chase, as Devil is pursued by lauded police officer ‘Himanshu’ (Randeep Hooda – Highway) as well as entering into a turf war with local gangster ‘Aslam’ (Nawazuddin Siddiqui – Gangs of Wesseypur). The movie is expected to do well in theaters and as we know Salman’s previous movie did not do so well in theaters! Guess we will have to find out if this film is the one of the year for Salu!
‘Kick’ is helmed by popular producer-turned-director Sajid Nadiadwala, with the screenplay written by Sajid Nadiadwala and acclaimed author Chetan Bhagat (3 Idiots, Kai Po Che, 2 States). Salman Khan is joined by leading lady Jacqueline Fernandez (Housefull, Race 2), Bobby Deol (Dostana), Mithun Chakraborty(OMG! Oh My God) and a special appearance by Nargis Fakhri (Madras Café), amongst others. The film has already met with acclaim by fans and industry figures alike, with the official trailer breaking records with four million hits in just 38 hours. The trailer launch has crossed 39,000 likes already, making it the fastest trailer to ever get so many likes.
Bollywood celebrities have also been tweeting their appreciation. Acting legend Amitabh Bachchan said: ‘Did you see the trailer of ‘KICK’. baaadooom!! Compares with anything that the other ‘wood’ brings out from their high end films!’.
Producer-director Karan Johar said: ‘#KICK looks outstanding!! Huge blockbuster enroute!! Congratulations Sajid!’.
With death-defying stunts, state-of-the-art VFX, picturesque locations and multiple avatars played by the delectable Salman Khan, ‘Kick’ promises to be a complete wholesome entertainer with an engaging plot and superstar Salman Khan at his best – as an action hero and romantic lead.
