The teaser of Salman Khan’s Eid release, Bharat is out! Like all of Bhai’s films, this one too has the Dabangg star not just taking the centre stage but literally is the only face that you will see in the one-and-a-half-minute teaser. The movie has Salman Khan in and as Bharat, but does that mean Katrina Kaif or Sunil Grover do not deserve to have any presence in the teaser? This is a debate that will go on and has no answer honestly. Well, both Grover and Katrina were given one frame each and in both, one couldn't see their face. But we have also noticed a detail about most of Salman Khan movie teasers, if not all. And it has to do with the actor of course!
So, most of Salman Khan starrer teasers have something in common. While Race 3 skipped this format and also failed to make an impact at the box office that Salman movies do otherwise. Most of his other films have the actor’s opening shot in the teaser in a specific angle. Salman Khan’s back shot is what appears in the frame before the actor himself. Well, don’t believe us? Here, watch the Bharat teaser again…
And now let’s take you back to Kabir Khan’s movie Ek Tha Tiger and you will see what we are talking about.
Or then Tubelight...
Looks like Ali Abbas Zafar, who is pretty close to Kabir Khan has picked this from the filmmaker and made it a part of his projects with Khan. Because we saw a similar entry in Sultan teaser.
While in Sultan we got to see Salman do some heavy lifting and the first shot reminded many of Sylvester Stallone’s Rocky Balboa. In the introduction, we had the classic over-the-shoulder Salman shot. And yes, Ali Abbas’ Tiger Zinda Hai too followed the ritual.
Which makes us wonder if this is the lucky introductory shot that filmmakers are sticking to in Salman Khan movies? Comment and share your thoughts.
