Deepika Padukone plays the role of an ex-ISI agent Rubia who becomes part of the mission but her loyalties are questioned several times. Last but not least, there is a cameo of Salman Khan as a Tiger. All of their fans go gaga over that scene, the crowd starts hooting, screaming, and whistling during the Tiger (Salman Khan) entry and both of the superstars perform the action sequence together. The film was shot in many picturesque locations that sometimes distract you from the actual action. We all have seen Shahrukh as a romantic hero but Pathaan proves that he’s the king of action too.

The movie seems a tad stretched in the 2nd half. Some dialogues make you laugh but overall, the writing isn’t impressive that leaves a mark. The movie is high on the action if you don’t question the logic behind the gravity-defying action scenes and also some times you feel the VFX work was not done properly. Overall, you can watch Pathaan, it’s a fun and fantastic movie at the same time and Seeing two superstars of Bollywood together in one frame after a decade in an action movie is nothing short of a celebration for their fans.
