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.
