Tezz is a widely anticipated movie for a number of reasons. Firstly Ajay Devgn is doing an action thriller after a long time. The last one being Qayamat: City under threat in 2003 and since then has delivered two of Bollywood’s biggest grossers, Golmaal 3 and Singham. Anil Kapoor returns to Bollywood films, hot off successful appearances in popular American TV series 24 and a cameo in Mission Impossible 4. Priyadarshan is actively directing different films as opposed comedies, starting with Aakrosh, a hard-hitting social drama and now Tezz, a slick action thriller. Can Ajay Devgan deliver another 100 crore blockbuster? Will Anil Kapoor be back with a bang? Can Priyadarshan pull off an action film? These are just some of the questions we went in to find out…
Firstly a quick summary of the story: Aakash (Ajay Devgn) is happily married to Nikita (Kangna), he lives and works in England. A raid »

Zayed Khan, who last featured in Love Breakups Zindagi, is excited about his forthcoming movie Tezz, and the excitement stems from the fact that he outshone everybody in the action scenes in the film.
The actor says he is back in action after a gap of four long years. The last time one saw him doing neck breaking stunts was in Blue. But action in Tezz says Zayed is far different from the action that he has done in his earlier film. “It’s something that I have never attempted before. There are amazing stunts and action in the film. I needed to learn Parkour and my role is fantastic,” says Zayed. Parkour is ा physical discipline, which focuses on efficient movement around obstacles. The main purpose of the discipline is to teach participants how to move through their environment by vaulting, rolling, running, climbing, and jumping. “I trained for 15 to »

Southern superstar Mohanlal has just done a cameo appearance in Priyadarshan’s Tezz, but the actor just can’t stop singing praises of the director. Mohanlal says, “As a director Priyadarshan is simply growing. He is thorough with his job and the best thing about him is that all the actors are comfortable working with him. His approach and knowledge about films is excellent. He knows how to extract performances from his stars.”
It is said that both Mohanlal and Priyadarshan share a long standing relationship. Their friendship goes back to their college days. Talk about their chemistry and Mohanlal quickly replies, “There is an unknown chemistry between me and Priyadarshan. Even when we work on Malyalam films he just describes a scene and I understand what he wants from me or what he expects from me. After continually working with the same person it sort of becomes a practice. »

For Anil Kapoor life may be real fast but the actor still believes in the age old adage “slow and steady wins the race” when it comes to his career.
The 49-year-old actor who has done over more than hundred films says that like his forthcoming movie Tezz, life is ultimately about being fast. “The youth of today want everything fast. There’s fast information which is downloaded with a twist of a finger, there are fast cars, fast food, fast education, fast medication that’s why people no longer believe in Ayurveda and Homeopathy. So much so that people want fast films too.”
Talking about these fast films he says, “The audience does not like to sit in a theatre for more than three hours. Hence the duration of a movie has changed to two hours. The screenplay has to be crisp and entertaining too.”
Fast, crisp and entertaining… »

Actress Sameera Reddy has been in news quite frequently these days as she's getting geared up for her next action flick Tezz. Talking about the multi-starrer film, Sameera said, "The star cast of the film is already making quite a lot of waves. To have Anil, Ajay, Zayed, Boman, Kangana together in a film was a big task. And of course roping Mohanlal was amazing thing as he is such a great star in down south. So it was a wonderfull concept of putting a fantastic team together »
With Ipl going on in India, there haven’t been that many releases that have caught my attention or deserved a full fledged review (I am looking at you Housefull 2- yeah yeah made tons of money blah blah blah) But that doesn’t mean that the roster of movies coming out this year doesn’t leave us salivating, so here is a catch up post of some of the trailers recently released and some thoughts.
Shot in London (so we get guaranteed shitty acting and dubbing by the worst Caucasian extras) and heavily inspired by Speed although I am seeing more of Denzel Washingtong’s Derailed, Tezz has been long in the making but has quite a few interesting actors attached to it (Anil Kapoor, Mohan Lal with his awesome hindi accent). These high budget action movies from Bollywood are so paint-by numbers (bullet time- check, parkour/free running -check, »

While the media may be agog with the news that the fans of Mollywood superstar, Mohanlal or Mohanlal himself is upset with the brief appearance in the upcoming thriller Tezz directed by Priyadarshan, Mohanlal clears the air saying his role was meant to be a cameo in Tezz and he predominantly did the film for Priyadarshan. Mohanlal says, "My role in Tezz is a very special appearance one. And I primarily did this film for Priyadarshan. This is my 43rd film with him. I always use »

A few days back it came to light that how Preity Zinta had to wrap up a crucial scene in 8 hours flat when the crew of Ishkq In Paris shot in a moving train around the French alps. The makers of Tezz though couldn't imagine doing something similar when they canned an action sequence in UK and ended up shelling out an enormous 1.5 crore."Shooting this crucial scene in just 1-2 days was out of question since just like Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor and Mohanlal, train too is akin to a »
Tezz marks the return of Priyadarshan after quite some time, his last release being Aakrosh that did not fare so well. Like Aakrosh, Priyadarshan has divested of his usual comical outings (Hera Pheri, Chup Chup Ke, Hungama and Hulchul) and gone for an action-suspense-thriller starring Anil Kapoor and Ajay Devgan as leads. Zayed Khan, Sameera Reddy, Kangana Ranaut and Boman Irani bring up the supporting tier of the ensemble with a rumoured appearance by Malayalam acting legend Mohanlal. Trailers and promos of the film thus far have looked more than promising and therefore one expects the music to reflect same.
Sajid-Wajid (Dabangg, Housefull 2 and Wanted) have composed for Tezz while Jalees Sherwani and Shabbir Ahmed have penned the lyrics. The 10-track soundtrack features the vocal talents of Shreya Ghosal (‘Chikni Chameli’ – Agneepath), Shaan (‘Behti Hawa Sa Tha Woh‘ – 3 Idiots), Mohit Chauhan (‘Sadda Haq’ – Rockstar), Sunidhi Chuhan (‘Ishq Sufianna’ – The Dirty Picture »

Tezz is an action thriller that features Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Kangna Ranaut, Boman Irani, Zayed Khan, Sameera Reddy and Mohanlal. From what we have heard we can expect some beyond exciting action scenes because one of the coolest things is that the action has been directed by the men behind the stunts for films like Harry Potter and the Deathly Hollows, Quantum of Solace and The Bourne Identity: Gareth Milne and Peter Pedrero.

Usually after a song promo is out, then we get a treat because they will release a “Making Of” video and in them we get to see behind the scenes on the sets of what went into the making of the song promo and sometimes if we are lucky we get to see little shots of the music composers and singers working on the song as well. For ‘Tere Bina’, Sajid-Wajid’s romantic number for the upcoming thriller Tezz we have something even cooler! Before we even hear the full song or see the song promo we have a look behind the scenes at the song in development. We get to hear the fabulous track, we also get to see the ever pitch perfect singer Rahat Fateh Ali Khan in the recording studio, plus the bonus of little glimpses of Ajay Devgn and Kangna Ranaut on set but only a peek! »

The unit of Venus Films' Tezz was in for a shock yesterday when some members from political group Shiv Sena stormed into the sets at Filmistan studios disrupting the shoot for a while. A song sequence featuring Mallika Sherawat was being filmed and Shiv Sainiks were objecting the presence of foreign dancers.
However, the production head explained to them that the foreigners just featured in a couple of shots as the movie is set in London. As promised, the foreigners even left after finishing their bit yesterday afternoon. Post that, the shoot went on smoothly.

After Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai, Ajay Devgn and Kangna Ranaut’s chemistry will be seen in Ratan Jain and Priyadarshan’s Tezz, releasing on 27th April, 2012. After the love song ‘Tum Jo Aaye Zindagi Mein’ of Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai they will be seen swaying in love in the song ‘Tere Bina’ from the film Tezz. Zayed Khan told us that, “Priyadarshan, the director, is doing an action drama after really long time. For him to come back into this genre and making the high-octane film that he is making was very attractive to me in the first place. And of course, I love doing action films. Priyadarshan is really stepping out of his shoes and has got this new baby energy towards doing this kick-ass action film.”
