The spy-thriller, which is a sequel to the 2012 blockbuster, Ek Tha Tiger, revolves around RAW (Research and Analysis Wing) agent Tiger and Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) agent Zoya’s mission to rescue 25 nurses from the clutches of an ISIS-like terrorist organisation. Not only does Tiger Zinda Hai have Salman Khan back to the genre he does best, action, it also marks the onscreen reunion of Salman Khan and Katrina Kaif after five years.
Tiger Zinda Hai has come across at a point of time when audiences and critics were skeptical of Salman Khan’s ever getting his magic back in the box office. But then Salman Bhai has got his mojo back and what is great about it all is that he has lashed out and hit his critics not with words but with action. In spite of being a tough year for Salman Khan in the in the initial months after giving a dud like Kabir Khan directed Tubelight, Salman Khan was back in theatres on 22nd December with TZH and easily toppled Golmaal Again from the 2nd highest grosser position in 2017 within a week.
