Bajrangi Bhaijaan

There was a lot of buzz around the release of this film and I saw social media statuses and all sorts of talk about it and realised its been years since I went to the cinema to watch a Bollywood Film. It was a film starring Salman Khan and Kareena Kapoor about a mute Pakistani girl played by the adorable little Harshaali Malhotra who is separated from her parents and finds an Indian stranger who makes it his mission try and get her home.

The reality of the subjects it touches pull on your heartstrings, prejudices surrounding religion and culture, politics and prostitution juxtaposed with the innocence of this child. It really takes you on a journey and opens your eyes to how we as humans focus on differences rather then similarities, how we would rather know stories of hatred then love and despite having that bollywood over the top-ness that was to be expected, I really loved it and even shed a tear.

I am sure it will stay in cinemas for a while, critics are raving about it, IMDB gave it an 8.5 and rotten tomatoes a whopping 94%, a 9/10 from me, I loved the cinematography, the story, the songs (lol at the selfie song) the only thing that could have improved it for me was to speed up some of it. Make sure you head to a cinema near you to enjoy this beautiful tale of love beyond barriers.
