With tiger 3 right around the corner, let’s discuss the existing films of time. Here’s my ranking:
4) Pathan: I think now that the hype has died, people realize that pathan was a somewhat below average action thriller with Srk in it. Everything in the movie, save for some scenes, was…meh. I think the best part of this film was how it truly opened the concept of cinematic universe, atleast for yrf. The franchise needed something to get some longeitivity.
3) Tiger Zinda Hai: I’d say the next 3 are pretty explosive and hard to rank. I think tiger zinda was a pretty good movie with some nice emotional scenes and slick action all in a hostage drama. Plus Salman shines and the songs are a banger.
2) Ek tha Tiger: I think ek tha tiger is a great film, but a good spy film otherwise. I’d say that’s coz back then they didn’t think about making a universe, so the story isn’t centered around nationalism and terrorists and all, but rather on a spy falling in love. It’s probably one of salman’s best imo.
1) War: Maybe I’m biased, but I just love this film. The songs, settings, actors, action, climax, ending- it’s a perfectly packaged spy film and tiger and hritik look SO good. The twist was nice too. The hype for this one was unreal too and I think it did manage to live up to it.
