Directed by Kabir Khan, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is a real breathtaking story of love, peace, and war. Salman plays as Pawab, who is called Bajrangi because he is undoubtedly an ardent Hanuman bhakt. One day, he meets a child called Shahida who is wandering alone, being hungry and speech-impaired. Bajrangi tries his best to bring the little girl back to her family in Pakistan, facing tons of challenges such as visa, borders, and biases.

In fact, Bajrangi Bhaijaan is such a timely film which aims to tug the heartstrings of the audience. It conveys a powerful message to the world: Set aside our territorial borders, end the war and work towards human peace. While Kabir Khan's film especially dives into the war issues and religious practices between India and Pakistan, its lessons can be applied to any other country.

There is a striking resemblance between the main character Bajrangi and Forest Gump. They are both innocent, morally upright who gets tricked and beaten up, but they never get shaken from their original purposes.

Through these naive characters, the director could bring up sensitive topics without appearing controversial: Religious practices, the human, and the bordered word we live in.

When it comes to Salman Khan's films, people always expect his character to be a charming and shirt-ripping superhero. However, we can meet a whole new Salman in Bajrangi Bhaijaan. The prominent actor underplays his supersized image in such an emotionally satisfying plot, putting on a luminous performance with gentleness and vulnerability.

Despite the fact that Salman Khan is a Muslim, he decided to portray a Hindu role. During his journey, he loves Rasika (Kareena Kapoor), and later saves a child who turns out to be a Muslim. He might be a fool, but he never strays off the righteous path.

In the most beautiful and touching way, Salman's character teaches us that humanity stands above borders, politics, and religion.

Bajrangi Bhaijaan somehow makes you groan due to its unreasonable length, convoluted plot or numerous unrelated songs. However, the film manages to carry a profound message, evoke sadness and bring a good laugh at the same time. It has an amazing blend and balance of everything.

Moreover, we cannot help but fall in love with Salman Khan's brilliant performance: He is a true definition of kindness, empathy, and godliness.

In the world of Bajrangi Bhaijaan, there are angels who see homes, lives, and children. It is a must-watch film if you want to restore your faith in humanity. Do not forget your box of tissues because the story might bring you to tears.
