O TERI is a political comedy directed by Umesh Bist, starring Pulkit Samrat, Bilal Amrohi and Sarah Jane Dias.
The film revolves around two news reporters who try to get their hands on a huge scam to become famous, but instead find themselves involved in one.
O Teri, as a comedy film, just fails completely, and here's why. Firstly, the film contains quite a good plot, showing it does have a great deal of potential, however, it's just completely wasted by the end of it. Since its produced by Salman Khan, I assume they realized doing a serious film like that doesn't work at all, so they decided to make a comical remake of it to appeal to all audiences. But here's where it gets worst. The several situations presented to the audience is so ridiculous that you don't know whether its comedy or just torture. Case and point, in one scene, the two main characters; PP and AIDS (no joke) go to a center where a dog is apparently an astrologer who can read out both of their fates. The film is said to be heavily based on the 1983 film, Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, however considering that film was a cult classic, I doubt whether O Teri has done any justice to it. I will admit though that there are some scenes that are 'so dumb its funny' that you do chuckle a bit (of course after admitting to yourself that you're in for the long run in this film).
The acting is really bad, in all honesty. Pulkit Samrat, after acting extremely well in Fukrey and showing us how much his talent he has, just sinks to doing a really bad role like this. Bilal Amrohi, ditto, but its not better than Pulkit Samrat (in terms of bad acting). Sarah Jane Dias just kept screaming the whole time for no reason that I could literally hear her voice echoing around the cinema whenever she spoke. All the politicians in the film make no sense whatsoever. This includes Anupam Kher (I have no idea what he's doing in this film) and Vijay Raaz, who is the only person that made me laugh thoroughly whenever he was on screen and one of the most enjoyable things in this film. Just like in Delhi Belly, he keeps spewing out swears which can be extremely hilarious, and throughout the film, he breaks three phones in anger, and at one point, even mentions it in a dialogue.
The songs are the best thing in this film, and is the only thing I carried with me after I left the film. There are great songs like "Butt Patlo", "Akhan Vich" and "Ummbakkum". And the film would have been more enjoyable if they just spread the songs evenly, but instead, the director places all the great songs in the first half and with a five minute gap to allow us to focus on the plot (or in other words, torture us with his dull, mindless flick). And not to state that some of the songs are quite unnecessary in film. Case and point, it is not normal for two guys to lose their job and to break into song and dance, and neither is it plausible for a politician to start singing with the public about following on Facebook and Twitter in the middle of a speech.
In conclusion, O Teri is telling us from the title itself what we're going to be saying by the end of the film (in disgust, of course). You might even tell me I'm going too hard on this film, and that its not THAT bad, and to that I say it isn't, because at the end, it tries to change your opinion by adding this ultra patriotic speech and sticking to the plot so that when you leave the cinema, you think its a feel-good timepass, but overall, the film really isn't. It's just below average. O Teri is just a basic reminder than whenever Bollywood tries to get better, there will be big duds like this to bring it down. The film would've been much better if the plot was portrayed in a much better way, if the acting was better and, most importantly, if it made more sense. You may enjoy laughing at the mindlessness of the film if you watch it with friends, but other than that, stay away from O Teri.
O TERI- 3/10
