Overdose of attitude without much sense or substance
10 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

'Tevar' meaning attitude is filled with macho-ism, routine action sequences and cheesy romance. Never expected some class cinema going through it, tried having an open-mind to enjoy anything it offers but still it failed terribly. Very bad start to new year for Bollywood. 'Tevar' has nothing new using regular formula of masala drama in Indian Cinema.

Main hero here played by Arjun Kapoor is Pintu Shukla a local kabbadi player of Agra, capable of winning matches single-handedly. Apart from that he is also a human-superman always ready to help people in danger using his strength. While Arjun tries his best to give a decent act but the character of Pintu lacks motivation and direction. His one-dimensional motive of helping out anybody no matter what lacks substance. At the same time we are introduced to the villain in Mathura, Gajendra Singh (Manoj Bajpai) a crime lord and the brother of Home minister. He falls for Radhika (Sonakshi Sinha) while watching her dance and straightaway starts pressurizing her to marry him. Both Pintu's and Radhika's road cross while Pintu was visiting Mathura and sees Gajendra forcibly dragging away Radhika who was trying to escape to U.S. As always our Superman needs to save the damsel, and here on the story is very predictable and seldom engaging.

While the first hour of character development was very bland and boring, but suddenly film gets engaging in the middle with some chase sequences and interactions between the villain and hero. Manoj Bajpai is always dependable but his talents are wasted here. Even though he was great to watch in many scenes yet the character of Gajendra also like the hero is quite one-dimensional. On the opposite side, Sonakshi Sinha gives another bad performance.She was unable bring forth her romance on the screen which is the only thing her character does starring clueless at Pintu. Surprises me she gave such a wonderful act in 'Lootera', her only film I liked so far. While Pintu's family was more likable though especially his sister. The film was not pathetic until the last half-an-hour of prolonged and tiring climax with lame predictable ending.

The film is shot nicely though, its always wonderful to have Taj Mahal in the backdrop.Debut director Amit Sharma shows a lot inconsistency. All the songs do not fit into screenplay nicely and feel forced. There is also romance and song in a chase sequence in second half which completely ruins the thrill and atmosphere built up. The dialogues are unremarkable plus the action is senseless and dumb. The length of 150 plus minutes is deterrent and mind-numbing. The production value is high, but even with lots of promotion I think this film will simply fail to entertain the audience. Overall, 'Tevar' was not only a terrible piece cinema but falls hugely short even as routine Bollywood action-flick.

RATING: [1/5]
