Salman is the star of the film and gives a good performance. He is great with real life brother Sohail, they share an endearing bond. Salman Khan’s act in the last scene is exceptional and will have many emotional. Sohail Khan is good in his role but is not very expressive. Shah Rukh Khan is great in his cameo and presents brilliance in his look. Late actor Om Puri is brilliant in the film and delivers a nice performance. Mohd Zeeshan Ayyub and Brijendra Kala are wonderful actors but the script does not give them much screen time. Yashpal Sharma is suitable as the army Major. Child actor Matin Ray Tangu is adorable and showcases his talent well. Chinese actress Zhu Zhu looks beautiful and makes a remarkable Bollywood debut with this film.
Tubelight shines brightly, the film should be watched with the family. The actor-director team have given us yet another interesting saga.
