Movie review: Kick is unimaginative and unoriginal
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 film's proceedings. Siddiqui with his gaunt physique is the man least likely to take on Khan in a brawl and emerge victorious. So it's a relief to know that here he is the baddie with a brawn and a colourful personality who annoys the hero with his teasing talk and creepy laugh.
