Well, it’s been a few months since the release of Veer and I tried unsuccessfully more than a few times to schedule a viewing with friends. This weekend, it finally happened and it was worth the wait.
Veer comes close to Karzzz in awesomeness. It is written by Salman Khan. The actors include Salman Khan, Sohail Khan, Zarine Khan, Mithunda, Puru Rajkumar and Aryan Vaid — who for the first time shows his acting skills in a period drama. With such actors, you really can’t take your eyes off the screen even for a moment. They all have perfect expressions — if you average out over the top and lack of expressions.
The movie has some mind-boggling CGI, great dialogues and a scene where Sohail Khan lies on top on Salman Khan, with Mithunda jumping on top of both. The movie takes anachronism to new levels and does away with silly things like research and consistently in script in favour of awesomeness. It is directed by Anil Gadar Sharma, and with that writing and acting team, things can’t go wrong.
I say — get a group of friends together, all of whom have sufficiently warped minds, and you’ll have a great time.
Next weekend — Prince.
Sohail Khan has come out strongly against practices in the film industry that are harming movies. One of them – multiple releases on a single day, due to which their home production Main Aur Mrs. Khanna did badly against All The Best and Blue.
He also feels that critics need to review movies on Mondays and not on Fridays as reviews can make or break a film. “I think reviewers should give a clean three-day run to every film and leave it on audiences to choose which one to watch. By writing a film off on a Friday, they indirectly cause a lot of harm to that movie and business definitely gets affected by such scathing reviews. Moreover, not many critics are unbiased today.”
I have heard this argument previously of disallowing film critics from reviewing movies immediately after/before they are released and I cannot disagree more.
We had around 5 decently good movies last year, so it is safe to assume that if you blindly walk in for a movie, about 95% of the time, the movie will leave you dissatisfied. So in a sense, what filmmakers want is more audience to be awed by their promotion and publicity gimmicks and willing to shell out a few hundred bucks for a product that in most cases isn’t even worth it.
Mr. Sohail Khan, I have a better idea for you. No reviews for the first three days, but the tickets should be for free. At the end of the movie, let people decide what they want to pay.
I think it’s a fair trade.
What say ?
