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… »

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, »

Mumbai, April 20: Actor Zayed Khan, who will soon be seen in Priyadarshan's "Tezz," says the filmmaker is very demanding and his anger can be highly unnerving. But in the end, it's all worth it, he says.

Mumbai, April 19: A lot of southern Indian actors may be making their way to Bollywood but veteran actor Mohanlal is happy doing Hindi films only once in a while and says he agrees to only "irresistible" roles.
The actor, who has dedicated over three decades to the Malayalam film industry, made his Bollywood debut with Ram Gopal Varma's "Company" in 2002. He was later seen in Varma's "Aag" and will now be seen in a cameo in Priyadarshan's "Tezz".
Despite many offers, Mohanlal wanted to be selective and to choose good roles.

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 »

Directed by Priyardarshan and starring the killer cast of Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Mohanlal, Kangna Ranaut, Zayed Khan, Sameera Reddy and Boman Irani, Tezz is an action drama getting ready to thrill audiences on April 27th. It follows the story of one man who is out to get back what was unjustly taken away from him… the other is willing to do whatever it takes to stop him in order to serve justice; both are pitted against each other…and both are pitted against time. Lives have already been destroyed and more lives are about to be devastated as a train speeding from Glasgow to London holds the fate of AakashRana (Ajay Devgn) and Counter Terrorism Command Arjun Khanna(Anil Kapoor), and only one of them will succeed.
The music is composed by the great Sajid-Wajid and if the the first song they have released, ‘Tere Bina’, is anything to »
