Salman Khan is the biggest hype when it comes to Bollywood movies. His stardom and fan following are undisputed in comparison to most other stars. One of the biggest illustration of his enormous reach over his fans is the undeniable fact that his movies always achieve great business irrespective of the fact whether that the movie has a decent, logical, or a rational story.
However, the critics of Salman Khan have always questioned the acting skills of India’s megastar. They say that most of his movies lack a certain rudder and are only about showcasing superficial ‘power-ranger’ like action. Some of the critics have gone a-step ahead and cited most of his movies are based upon a look-alike concept.
Speaking about the likes of Kick, Wanted, Dabbang & Ek Tha Tiger, they said: “Such movies always revolve around the same concept of a villain and a hero and the hero beats the shit of the villain by the end. Hence, there is nothing that is new. They, more or less, are the same stories just with different pictures”.
