The Tubelight teaser is quite good. If only...

...It was original, feels Syed Firdaus Ashraf. After Bajrangi Bhaijaan, one expected Kabir Khan to give us another original story in his next film, Tubelight. Alas, no! The Tubelight teaser acknowledges a Hollywood movie, Little Boy. Why would Khan look for a story in Hollywood when there are so many wonderful Indian stories, just waiting to be told on screen?
