Now let’s have a look at Tubelight movie review by top Indian Hindi film critics like Rajeev Masand, Taran Adarsh, Komal Nahata, Raja Sen, Anupama Chopra, Kamal R Khan, IMDB Rating, Times of India, Hindustan Times, and much more at here.

1.) Rating: -/5. Review by Arti Dani on Khaleej Times

The best part about the movie was the bonding between Sohail and Salman. Kabir smartly paired up real-life brothers — who are extremely close to each other — on the screen. Their scenes together are so natural and refreshing that I hope to see them together in some road adventure movie. Shah Rukh Khan plays a crucial role in the film in one scene with Salman but their scene together, which talks about magic, hardly felt magical to me. The movie did not work for me in entirety. However, it is nice to see Salman associating himself with different kinds of scripts with movies like ‘Bajrangi Bhaijaan’, ‘Sultan’ and now ‘Tubelight’.

2.) Rating: 2.5/5. Review by Manjusha Radhakrishnan, Gulf News

Tubelight is one of those films that shamelessly attempt to emotionally manipulate viewers into being sentimental wrecks. The scene is set rapidly — we are told that Salman isn’t conventionally intelligent and gets mercilessly bullied in school for his slow-on-the-uptake nature, but the arrival of his younger brother — a buffed up Sohail — puts an end to his misery. Watch this film if you love Salman enough to ignore the flaws in his film.


3.) Rating: 3/5. Review by Meena Iyer on Times of India

At the outset, one must warn people that Tubelight is a departure from your regular Salman Khan mass entertainers. 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. When it comes to performances–Salman laughs and cries unselfconsciously, unraveling the lesser-seen side of his macho image. He cannot move mountains with his performance but he manages to keep the faith alive. Sohail is sincere. Zhu Zhu shows spunk and young Matin entertains. And, Om Puri reminds you of the mettle unsung heroes are made of.


4.) Rating: 1.5/5. Review by Shubhra Gupta on Indian Express

Salman Khan film has one message — love conquers all. The message is apt, the messenger not so much. It is the supporting cast led by the adorable child actor Matin Rey Tangu, father figure Om Puri and hot-head Zeeshan Ayyub that really infuses the film with a glow.

5.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Ahana Bhattacharya on Koimoi

This Tubelight flickers; fails to shine brightly. The film fails to leave an impact. Surely, a little more was expected from the actor-director duo who has delivered a film like Bajrangi Bhaijaan in the past! 2 stars for this.


6.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Bollywood Hungama

On the whole, TUBELIGHT come across as a colossal disappointment as it fails to engross the audiences due to its wafer thin plot. At the Box-Office, the movie will take a jumpstart due to Salman Khan’s star power and accelerate over the weekend and the extended weekend [due to the Eid festivities], post which, the business will see a sizeable drop.


7.) Rating: 2/5. Review by Ananya Bhattacharya on India Today

Watch Tubelight if you have enough yakeen that you can sit through this 2.5-hour long Moral Science class. Salman Khan fans can muster up enough yakeen. As for the rest, this is no Bajrangi Bhaijaan.


8.) Rating:-/5. Namrata Joshi by on The Hindu

But one would have bought into the mock up with willing suspension of disbelief —“yakeen ki taaqat”, as the film puts it —had it been moving enough. Unfortunately, piety and righteousness are written way too large on Tubelight. We need some inventiveness and chutzpah even when we take the bull by its horns. After all, what’s cinematic subversion without any sparkle?


9.) Rating: 3/5. Review by Saibal Chatterji on NDTV Movies

Its shine might be inconsistent, but when Tubelight does achieve full wattage, which is frequently enough to stand out, it does light up the screen. Watch it even if you aren’t a Salman Khan fan. Tubelight does much more than just entertain.
