No Tigers are harmed in this bombastic, uninspired Salman Khan-starrer
Screenwriting can’t be easy, but surely it isn’t as difficult as Tiger Zinda Hai makes it out to be. Here’s a sparkling exchange from late in the film. The CIA director calls RAW officer Shenoy (Girish Karnad) and tells him: “You have 30 minutes." “I need more time," Shenoy protests. “I can only give you 30 minutes." A stop-clock is set up in the RAW office, counting down from 30. Shenoy calls his men in Ikrit, Iraq. “You have 30 minutes." “Only 30 minutes?" they ask. “Yes, only 30 minutes."
