So what’s Kick all about? We have the scoop!
On a train journey in Warsaw, psychiatrist Shaina (Jacqueline Fernandez) meets Himanshu (Radeep Hooda), who is a police officer from India to discuss their prospective marriage. Both are reluctant to enter into an arranged union but become friends and strike a deep conversation where Shaina reveals her previous relationship with the eccentric Devi (Salman Khan), a man who lived only for his ‘Kick’ aka an adrenaline rush. Despite his idiosyncrasies they embark on a whirlwind romance, until one day he breaks up with her for a new ‘Kick’ and walks away never to return. Himanshu in turn regales her with his glorious escapades as an officer but mentions that he has finally met his match, an intelligent thief. What they are both unaware of is that their stories have one thing in common, Devi. He returns to their lives under the pretext of having lost his memory. Behind it all, is a deeper mystery and an uncompromising mission for which Devi is ready to lose his life.
Sajid Nadiadwala the producer who has given us numerous hits over the years takes up the camera in his hand and turns director for the film. Nadiawala told TOI, “For me to do this film with Salman is a very big high, as it is just his mood one day that made me a director. The experience of working on this film for me was similar to Judwaa, my first film as a producer with Salman, as then too, he had as much faith in me.”
Talking about the trailer being such a massive hit, the filmmaker said, “I feel the trailer has worked due to a combination of the intrigue it had, as we had not exposed any visuals before, the locations, the photography, the actors, the dialogues and above all, Salman himself. I have been in this industry for 27 years and am like a child of it. So, for me, be it Mr Bachchan’s tweet, to contemporaries like Akshay Kumar calling me, to youngsters like Arjun Kapoor, Varun Dhawan or Tiger Shroff calling me, was very exciting. Everybody from the industry has been surprised and excited and that for me is a great high.”
