On a quest to light up the festival of Eid again, Salman Khan ushered his latest film Tubelight on the big screen this Friday. With most of his blockbusters released during the Muslim festival, which marks the end of Ramadan, movie buffs were quite excited to get their dose of entertainment. However, it seems like the 51-year-old couldn’t create enough magic on the silver screen.
People came out on Twitter to express their disappointment after watching the film and confessed how the plot was weak and failed to touch a chord. What’s surprising is that even Shah Rukh Khan’s cameo couldn’t charm the spectators. Amid the mixed response on the social media networking site, a lot of trolls kept their game going strong with hilarious jokes and witty one-liners.
Read some of the funny reactions here.

Khan plays the role of Laxman Singh Bisht, a child-like man, who is also called “tubelight” in the film. Also starring Sohail Khan, Matin Rey Tangu, Zhu Zhu, Mohammed Zeeshan Ayyub, Om Puri, the film has been directed by Kabir Khan.
Nevertheless, bad reviews have done little to dampen the film’s collections. Tubelight opened to quite a positive response in North India with 60-70 per cent occupancy in morning shows. Buzz is also that the film has already amassed Rs 6.6 crore in UAE-GCC, Dubai and other areas where it was released one day ahead of its India release.
