Tees Maar Khan- Movie Review

Roochster

My name is Sheila…Sheila ki jawani…I’m too sexy for you…main tere haath na aani! This song has been stuck in everyone’s heads since atleast a month and now after watching the movie, there’ll definitely be more fans of the song if not the movie.

Tees Maar Khan (TMK) a.k.a Akshay Kumar is a con artist who plans to rob a train loaded with antiques that can fetch him enough moolah for the rest of his life. In order to rob the train, he disguises himself as a film director and cons Bollywood superstar Aatish Kapoor (Akshaye Khanna), desperately wanting an Oscar and Sheila (B grade actress and TMK’s girlfriend), with a lead role in a ‘period film’ called Bharat Ka Khazana (supposedly based on the Kakori conspiracy case of the pre-Independence era).

Farah Khan’s known for her masala movies and she’s made 2 really good ones. I don’t understand why this went wrong. It’s funny in parts but not funny enough. There’s drama and action but not enough. Somehow, I just couldn’t enjoy this movie completely. The dialogues are very ok. I didn’t find myself laughing at most jokes. OK I laughed a lot at the ‘Mere desh ki dharti scene’ and I must admit it was very funny.

Coming to the acting part…There’s Akshay Kumar who’s acted better in the past and there’s Katrina who’d have made atleast 10,000 people watch the movie only for her item song- Sheila ki jawani. Her role has no matlab only. I think the supporting actors- Raghu & Rajiv, Aarya Babbar and Akshaye Khanna were way better!  The music is not that great except for Sheila ki jawani, Wallah re wallah and the title track which are good but not excellent. I still think Munni’s better than Sheila in all respects.

So yeah, Tees Maar Khan is just average and I’m quite disappointed. I expected more from Farah Khan.

Rating– 2.5/5
