Mumbai: Salman Khans "Tubelight" might be getting a mixed response from the critics, but it has left celebrities like Preity Zinta, Dia Mirza and Subhash Ghai in awe of it. They feel the heart-warming performances in the Kabir Khan directorial light up the films narrative.

"Tubelight", also featuring Salman's brother Sohail, child actor Matin Rey Tangu and Chinese actress Zhu Zhu, is set in the backdrop of the India and China war of 1962. It released in India on Friday. 

The makers are claiming that "Tubelight" is the widest release ever for a Hindi film releasing in 5,550 screens worldwide. It is releasing in India on 4,350 screens, and 1,200 screens in traditional markets only, excluding China and other non-traditional markets. 

Film critic Taran Adarsh on Friday tweeted: "'Tubelight': Disappointing, solid star power, stunning visuals. 'Tubelight' body beautiful, minus soul.

"'Tubelight' rests on a thin plot... Screenplay lacks the power to enthral and mesmerise... Emotions plenty, but few moments stand out. Will it touch Rs 300 crore, Rs 400 crore, Rs 500 crore? I doubt." 

 

 

But members of the film fraternity are going gaga over the film.  

Preity Zinta: Congrats Salman Khan and Kabir Khan for yet another blockbuster. Absolutely loved the time, innocence and world of Tubelight.
