“Salman comes off sounding and behaving like a patronizing adult goo-goo-gaa-gaa-ing to a baby. In the more intense, emotional scenes, he’s clearly out of his depth, and you watch transfixed as he struggles like a non-swimmer, flailing arms and all, who’s been thrown into the deep end.”
“It’s nearly always excruciating when an actor with limited talent plays a character with limited intelligence. Normally, the charge against Salman is that he doesn’t do anything; here, he does so much that you’ll be begging for him to go back to his minimalist ways.”
“If cinema can be transformative, then it’s not a bad idea to make an inclusionary and empowering film. But it’s got to be a good film first. Tubelight is severely let down by its leading man, Salman, who looks so out of his depth here that you (almost) feel bad for him.”
“The effort, on Salman’s part, to come off slow-witted shows in every frame. It’s all contorted face, sing-song delivery; all surface, no depth. And absolutely no nuance. Instead of Hindi Chini bhai bhai, it is more like Hindi Chini, bye bye.”
