Bajrangi Bhaijaan - Detailed review

The combination of director Kabir Khan and actor Salman Khan always ensures strong quality and box office success in Bollywood! The tragicomic, emotional actioner “Bajrangi Bhaijaan” was also able to easily crack the 100 million mark and, despite a running time of just under three hours and an extremely tight budget of around 13 million US dollars, generated 121 million euros worldwide. Judging by the soulful and engaging story, that's not really a big surprise either.

In fact, director Khan once stated that the script for "Bajrangi Bhaijaan" was based in part on his own experience. In his childhood the filmmaker was strongly influenced by the Indian gods and inspired by a very special play that he incorporated into it. His aim was to tear down the borders, to suppress the aversion between Hindus and Muslims and to write a story that unites about the love of the cause.

Aseem Mishra was responsible for the intense visual language of the film. He has worked with the two Khans on several occasions and has been valued for his outstanding visual achievements in Bollywood for years.
