  •  Bollywood Hungama -Taran Adarsh Rating-9
Okay, let's get one thing straight: Salman Khan's movies are critic-proof. The naysayers or those baying for his blood may frown on the slipups and blemishes in his movies, point out gaping plot holes, accuse him of opting for remakes rather than original concepts, slam him for using

  •  Rediff -Raja Sen Rating-6
It was bound to happen.At some point, a canny producer was sure to realise that all that matters in the kind of movies Salman Khan does nowadays is Salman Khan. After looking at, for example, Bodyguard or Ready -- hideous, tacky eyesores that nonetheless rule the charts

  •  Gulf News -Manjari Saxena Rating-6
You don’t have to be a scriptwriter to know what happens next. You just need to leave your brains home and enjoy the story, if it can be called that. As the film ends with Singh saying, “don’t try understanding me, just love me”, please don’t try to understand a Salman Khan film. Simply, love it.

  •  Masala.com -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-5
I admit I am ugly, useless loser and most importantly, I should die because Salman’s already multi-crore spinner didn’t give me any kick, pun hell intended!But please understand that this is nothing personal about Salman khan. It's not even about good or bad films as it's all very subjective.

  •  Emirates 24/7 -Sneha May Francis
‘Kick’ is a vintage Salman-Khan movie, one that unapologetically glorifies his every move, muscle and mannerism. As the curtains roll down, we can’t help but notice how it requires a skillset of a different kind to watch Salman’s movies. If you don’t have it in you, please don’t venture out!

  •  Koimoi -Mohar Basu Rating-6
It isn’t a surprise but the film has no story. If you are expecting intellect, I will doubt yours. Devil Lal Singh is a superhero. To make it more believable, the makers even gave a Krrish mask to the man, who has topped every exam he has appeared in and broken every bone that has come his way.

  •  Deccan Chronicle -Sushmita Murthy Rating-6
There are certain ground rules for a Salman Khan film. While most heroes work their way towards earning the title in their respective films, Salman Khan, from the very first frame establishes who the boss is. What follows is a constant reminder, approved by a cheering audience.

  •  DNA -Sarita Tanwar Rating-8
Salman Khan plays the role of the fun-loving Devilal whose only aim in life is to get a 'kick' in whatever he does. A chance encounter with the Poland-based Shaina (Jacqueline) leaves him besotted. But the love story is short-lived because she cannot handle Devi's lack of commitment.

  •  Time Out -Aniruddha Guha Rating-4
Debutant director Sajid Nadiadwala, a veteran producer with a fairly successful track record, brings together ingredients audiences should ideally demand from every Bollywood blockbuster in Kick. The film’s mounted on a lavish scale, the cinematography (Ayananka Bose) is top-notch,

  •  Mid Day -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-4
Welcome to bizarreland. This is where people do what they want and the audience is expected to digest it with open mouthed admiration. This is the kind of ‘masterpiece’ that would put Robinhood to reconsider his charitable intentions. Because as you know, Bhai rocks.

  •  India Today -Suhani Singh Rating-3
There are two devils in Kick. Both have sinister smiles. One of them, as the trailer tells us, is a thief named Devil (Salman Khan). The other one is in disguise. His name is Shiv (Nawazuddin Sidddiqui), a loony, over-the-top villain whose presence adds a much-needed kick to the

  •  Indian Express -Shubhra Gupta Rating-4
What this lovely word means is ‘unbearable’, though it can’t come remotely close to the tedium that the original describes. Salman’s leading lady says it to him. About him. Yes, gasp, addressing the one and the only Sallu Bhai, who appears in his latest In and As avatar in ‘Kick’.

  •  India Today -Rohit Khilnani Rating-5
The movie is directed by Salman's good friend Sajid Nadiadwala and their comfort level shows on screen. As a director/friend, Nadiadwala has done everything for the superstar, from a filmi entry to his famous walk which his fans love and his character in the film helps the needy,Kick has it all!

  •  Glamsham -Martin D'Souza Rating-6
The movie actually begins when Devi Lal Singh and Devil, both slice through Dr Shaina and Himanshu on a Poland street asking for directions to a doctor's clinic. Yes, Sajid Nadiadwala takes this much time to get the action rolling in KICK. Immediately after this scene, the words I N T E R V A L

  •  Moviez Adda -Divya Solgama Rating-8
There is lots of dum for all those seeking a masala entertaining film with good music, fast pace actions and star power attached to it. The logic hunters in such type of films might end up getting disappointed as usual. The movie might not be on the lines of Salman Khan's super entertaining

  •  Times of India -Srijana Mitra Das Rating-7
Straight on, Kick is Bollywood biryani, a masala movie spiced with the superstardom of Salman Khan, garnished by charming Jacqueline, smouldered over the wry talent of Randeep Hooda. Kick is not for lovers of fine filmi foie gras, but for those who want a hearty Eid banquet to enjoy.

  •  NDTV -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-5
To give the Devil his due, Kick isn’t half as bad as some of the Bollywood flicks that moviegoers have been subjected to in recent months. Kick is the Sajid Nadiadwala's debut as a director. Sajid is a seasoned producer of money-spinning potboilers. It is no different from the films

  •  Rediff -Sukanya Verma Rating-4
Never heard a filmmaker say 'Anyone can direct' in the vein of Chef Gusteau's 'Anyone can cook' belief. There's a reason why. Watching Kick, which marks producer Sajid Nadiadwala's debut as director, explains it with brutal honesty.Its star, soul and the reason why anyone should care at all

  •  Sify -Sonia Chopra Rating-5
The film is built around an interesting concept, sadly marred by a worn-out story. The idea of a central character, a genius of sorts, always looking for a “kick” is immediately arresting. For that kick, Devil Lal Singh (Salman) doesn’t mind being chased around by sword-wielding ruffians,

  •  Now Running -Noyon Jyoti Parasara Rating-3
No, Kick is not the worst film of all times. But it is easily Salman's weakest film in quite some time. By that I do mean Jai Ho is many notches higher. So is Bodyguard. The problem of Kick is it's screenplay. Rajat Arora is a phenomenal dialogue writer. We have seen his work in films

  •  Book My Show -Saumya Sharma Rating-7
There are three things one mustn’t underestimate in life, and they are Salman Khan, Salman Khan and Salman Khan. Primarily because the aura that the actor carries with him is more majestic than the person. When you watch a film that stars Salman Khan, you watch it for him,

  •  Zee News -Aparna Mudi Rating-6
Made in a typical south Indian masala style, the entire movie can be summed up in its own dialogue "Main dil mein aata hoon, samajh mein nahin" (I enter hearts, but can`t be understood). It is all about Salman`s aura. Sajid has fit him into as many frames as possible, and he looks terrific.

  •  The W14 -Mayank Shekhar Rating-3
I watched this movie with Bhai’s bhakts (or Bhai-tards as they are popularly called on Twitter). They seemed to be lapping up this Dhoom 4, where Bhai, like Aamir’s clown, plays the Devil with a mask, going about looting various treasure troves with a cop (Randeep Hooda, in place of

  •  Mumbai Mirror -Rahul Desai Rating-4
Salman Khan loyalists won't be too happy; Kick utilizes the services of actors like Nawazuddin Siddiqui, Saurabh Shukla and Sanjay Mishra. Often, they are in the same frame as Khan, blowing to bits the myth that Khan needs to just show up to engage his viewers.

  •  Bollywood Life -Tushar Joshi Rating-9
One word – Salman! This guy has never looked so good in any of his films, Kick isn’t just reinventing Salman’s work portfolio, but it is also going to rewrite box-office figures and previous records set by the actor. Kick is a full on entertainer that will give you the much needed ‘kick’

  •  Business of Cinema -Udita Jhunjhunwala Rating-4
The dialogue writer of this film seem to have started with a blank page and liberally splattered the word ‘kick’ all over it. Then they wove these words together with other words. Never mind that when strung together they made no sense. As long as the audience was told 300 times

  •  Indiaglitz -Vishal Verma Rating-8
This two hours twenty six minutes delirious mix of B-town escapisms and buffoonery romanticism is insistently entertaining for Salman Khan fans and entertainment hungry souls in general underlining the debut of Sajid Nadiadwala as a director of ‘mass’ entertainer while

  •  Yahoo Movies -Rummana Ahmed Rating-7
‘Kick’ is the kind of film where I allow my better judgment to be blurred and just soak in this spicy potpourri. This delicious Bollywood masala fare is served with a dash of romance, a generous dose of action, dollops of melodrama and some pontification.

  •  Daily Bhaskar Rating-4
Kick is a typical Salman Khan film where one witnesses a blast of charisma exuding from the screen that reaches the audience faster than any acting done by the star. Like all his films, this one too promises an onslaught of entertainment where one enters the hall thinking of Salman’s

  •  IBN Live -Rajeev Masand Rating-5
If you look really closely, you'll notice that the new Salman Khan starrer Kick is fashioned as a mirror to his own life. Directed by Sajid Nadiadwala, this is a movie on a mission. A mission to whitewash the actor's controversial personal image, and to reinforce the notion that he may be a bad boy,

  •  Deccan Herald -Angel Rani Rating-4
Salman Khan runs around the globe to find that elusive kick in life. Five songs, one Eid,  one Children’s Day and some retrograde amnesia later, he finds it.Phew! And we are already at the fag end of the second half of the film.Nobody expects a Higgs boson-type discovery
