Entertainment....
22 January 2010 | by namashi_1See all my reviews

Anil Sharma's Magnum Opus, 'Veer' is finally out. Is it good, it worth the hype? The answer is a big YES! 'Veer' is a great entertainer, it's escapist cinema at its best!

'Veer' takes inspiration from the cult classic 'Taras Bulba' & writer Salman Khan excepts the fact. But taking inspiration is no sin, it's no law-breaker. 'Veer' starts off the bang & ends the very same. Sure it slips in the middle {post-interval in the love story becomes boring} but a terrific finale takes away all the blemishes.

'Veer' is a film targeted at the front-bencher's, with Clap-worthy dialogs, Massy stars like Mithun & Salman, terrific locales. 'Veer' is meant for those who enjoy Cinema some times, because of it's escapism.

Pluses: Sharma's direction is good, wish he could've edited those boring portions in the second hr. Cinematography by Gopal Shah is so good, that he deserves a National-Award for his work in here. Music by Sajid-Wajid is beautiful. All the songs have a haunting tune. Background score is gripping. Performances are up-the-mark: Salman as Veer is very good; the Good-Looking Superstar delivers one of his careers best performances. Mithun is terrific. The Legendary actor plays the role of a lead Pindari with rare ease & understanding. Jackie is killer as the conniving villain. New-find Zarine Khan is not only a pretty face, but also a good performer. Puru Raaj Kumar is excellent, while Aryan Vaid doesn't get much scope. Neena Gupta is good.

Minuses: As mentioned, The second hr loses pace. In fact the Love Story seems boring. Sohail Khan's comedy track is absolutely bland.

On the whole 'Veer' is entertainment at its best. Go in with Popcorn, Nachos, Samosas & a large Pepsi. Thumbs Up!
