Tubelight Story: Laxman Singh Bisht (Salman) is nicknamed tube light by his neighbours because he is feeble-minded.
Despite being special, Laxman lives by one life-lesson; keep your faith alive and you can do almost anything, even stop a war.
Tubelight Review: At the outset, one must warn people that Tubelight is a departure from your regular Salman Khan mass entertainers. Here Bollywood’s darling-star plays a child-man who doesn’t take off his shirt or flex his biceps.
Tubelight inspired by the Hollywood film Little Boy directed by Alejandro Monteverde, is told with a fable-like simplicity.
The film that propagates the values of family, faith and patriotism doesn’t manage to take a complete leap of faith because somewhere someone couldn’t pull this one off convincingly.
In fact, everything is so cloyingly sweet that you start feeling you’ve strolled into a sermon rather than a Salman movie.
