A Missed Opportunity
22 January 2010 | by masrurSee all my reviews

Veer's production budget was rumored to be around Rs 50 crore. Obviously that raised my expectations to a new height. Had my fingers crossed and hoped that Salman Khan might have finally delivered something laudable. But within 10 minutes into the movie, I knew that I was going to be greatly disappointed, once again.

The story was simply absurd. Any story on the struggle for independence against British Raj should not be narrated with so much surrealism. The viewers must be somehow influenced to be sympathetic and respectful to the characters who fought long and hard to win our freedom. Instead, the movie felt like a stupid joke at times and many people inside the theater started laughing. In the process of writing a period movie, the writer seemed to have been lost in time a few times. Certain parts of the story (in London) felt too modern to be early twentieth century. If Mangal Pandey ought to be criticized for lacking sense of proportion then I am not even sure what to say about Veer.

Salman Khan should consider some training in serious acting. His expressionless face became a burden to watch at times. He should realize that it is time for him to come on the screen as the character, not as Salman Khan. The lead actress was equally inept in her role. Mithun Chakravarty was melodramatic as usual, but he was bearable. The quality of the English actors was mostly poor.

I must admire the technical aspects of the movie though. The sets, costumes, artifacts, decorations, computer graphics, cinematography, etc were one of the best I have seen in Indian movies. Editing could have been better. Some of the fight scenes and stunts seemed old school and felt flimsy in comparison to standard Hollywood action movies.

Anyway, I believe such astronomical production cost and efforts could have been much better utilized on a story from Ramayan or Mahabharat.
