Storyline

Circa 1920 British India, Pindari leader, Prithvi Singh, narrates his story to a Report from London Times about betrayal and deceit at the hands of the British and Madhavgarh's Raja Gyanendra Singh which led to the massacre of 4500 Pindaris. Although Prithvi sliced off Gyanendra's right arm, he has sworn to avenge and behead him and two-faced Britishers - who on one hand preach about Justice, Fraternity and Equality, but conquer and rule vulnerable natives - fueling hate and division on lines of religion, and caste. He sends his sons, Veer Pratap and Poonam, to Britain to learn about their devious ways, so that he can conquer Madhavgarh. The duo, despite of Lord Macaulay's malicious policy to convert foreign nationals to his way of thinking, not only pick up the relevant skills but also slay Yuvraj Sujan Singh, the only son of Gyanendra, much to the joy of the Pindaris. But Prithvi is in for a shock when he finds out that Veer has decided to wed Yashodhara, Sujan's sister, little ... Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

A lot of hype but only some pleasure.
21 January 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Veer is Salman Khans most ambitious project to date. No doubt about that, he has scripted the film, but that is exactly what the film suffers from, don't get me wrong, it isn't half bad for a man whos career lies is in acting. But its quite obvious that Salman viewed the Hollywood Epic "Troy" beforehand, most of the storyline is a rip off from it. 2 warring tribes? the heroine belonging to the enemy tribe? A fight between Veer and the heroines brother in which Veer wins? A tearful yet acceptable climax? All seems a bit too familiar to me.

Salman is very good in the film but he is looking his age, for the most part he does not have a six pack but more of a flab pack. Sohail Khan is ludicrous (in the bad sense), he tries hard to bring a sense of humour but fails miserably. Mithun pleasantly surprises, the fight between him and Salman is the highlight of the film. Jackie Shroff is bearable as is his on-screen daughter, the heroine and debutant, Zarine Khan.

However the film is in all honesty, too long, while being an adaptation of troy, it also has its own stroyline, but 2 and half hours is pushing it, the story could have been told in 2 hours max given the brief interlude from the songs (which are picturised very well).

The love story is a run-of-the-mill one, hero and heroine falls in love, then some melodrama (and in this case fighting and action), before a reunion, then an expected twist.

Action scenes, war scenes etc etc are underdone, the film is definitely an epic, but more in the bollywood "44 crore budget" sense, Veer lacks the granduer but Salman more than makes up for it.

Music is well used in the film, depicts the more grand style of times back then, but the party song, the name of which i cant remember is brilliant on screen. Cinematography is all in all very good.

Final Verdict: See it for Salman, but don't go expecting a huge bollywood epic, you'll be disappointed.
