Tubelight Story:

TubelightLaxman Bisht aka Tubelight a feeble-minded guy who lives with his brother in Kumaon region of Himachal. He is often teased by his friends for being so dumb and what makes him different from others is his firm belief. But will this belief help him to find his missing brother who got lost in the war-zone?

Tubelight Review:

Salman has been playing dumb roles in his recent past movies and it seems that he has mastered it now and Tubelight is one such fine example of that. This movie is an unofficial remake of Little Boy- where we get to see the beautiful relationship of two young brothers Laxman ( Salman ) and Bharat ( Sohail ).  Laxman is a mentally weak guy who is the favorite entertainer of his locality. But he gets alone when his brother gets selected as a soldier in the ongoing Indo-china war.

It will take you the whole First half of this film to digest this new avtar of Salman. There is a perfect mixture of Humor with emotions which keeps the audience engaged initially but the movie loses its way as it proceeds. The whole story is weaved around him only and this weakens all the other aspects of the film.

The film propagates the Message that self-belief can do the miracles.


Most of the second part looks forcefully stretched and hardly leaves any impact on the audience. Talking about the star performances we have to admit that Salman has managed to impress this time and his acting was full of emotions and a good helping hand is provided by Late actor Om Puri. Except them, everyone else was just average. Though Shahrukh Khan’s cameo was hugely appreciated.

The Last words for this movie are that Tubelight badly failed to stand up to the expectations of the audience but Salman still managed to win our heart.
