Veer movie review:

Veer is most important and ambitious movie in Salman’s Career. In one interview he said that it is my dream project and I wrote this story 20 years ago after success of Main Ne Pyaar Kiya .
Veer is historical periodical movie which mostly don’t work on Box office in India. But, Last periodical release Jodha Akbar worked on box office with critical and commercially success. Now we have to see that at this time what is Salman Khan’s fate


Salman Khan (Veer) and his father Mithun (Prithvi Singh) belong to a tribe Pindari who are enemies of another tribe Madhavgarh because king of Madhavgarh (Jackie Shrof ) is supporting British Empire. Salman falls in love with Jeckie’s daughter Zarine Khan (Yashodhara). When Salman knows that his love is the daughter of King of Madhavgarh then he decided to win both instead of one.
Script is well written and had strong feelings. Writer showed that an educated person can deal better than an illiterate person. Salman studied in UK and when he came back then he decided that how to win this war.


Veer belongs to only one person which is Salman Khan, he is on peak of his acting career
now a days. Last year Wanted and London Dreams and now he again proved himself that he is one of the best and finest actors in recent bollywood. When Wanted was released then critics said that it is his best performance ever, when London Dreams released then same comments came and now in Veer he again proved himself.But his body looks like unusual for a pindari, also looks like hero of 1900's.
New actress Zarine Khan is also good. She looks good and sometimes she resemble to Katrina Kaif in some scenes. But she needs more improvement.
Mithun Chakraborthi , Purab Rajkumar, Jackie Shrof all are good in their roles. Sohail Khan was really pathetic.


Veer is directed by Anil Sharma who gave us a good historical movie Gadar-EK Prem Katha which was the most successful movie in 2001.
At this time he chose a good idea and well story. He was successful in some parts and in some parts he failed like love story part is very usual and fighting scenes are not well executed.


Veer has good sound track especially two songs Salam Aaya and Surili Akhiyon Wale are already chart busters. Both songs have good melody and execution. Rest of other songs like Taali and Meharbania is average.
Back ground score is very touchy and melodious. Especially tune of Surili Ankhiyon Wale is fantastic which comes lots of time in romantic scenes.

Negative Points:

1. Script is too lengthy. Movie running time is 165 minutes . Audience feel boring it could trim at least 15 minute. There are so many scenes which were not necessary like Salman’s fight with one Pindari for leadership.
2. Sohail Khan himself is a weak point. He was trying to make laugh in whole movie but he couldn’t successful.
3. War and fighting scenes are not well executed. They could be better.
4. Love part is very usual same like a lot of movies which we have seen before and same story like girl and boy belongs to different cast or tribes, both fall in love and then some twists.
5. Sometimes movie looks copy of Hollywood movie Troy. So many same situations like fight between 2 different tribes, heroine belongs to enemy tribe, fight between hero and heroine’s brother and hero kills him. Climax is also resembled to Troy to some extents.

Veer is well made movie which has good story line and best performances by Salman and Mithun.
It has good hype among all Salman fans and movie will take good start. Most people don’t like periodical movies so it is bad for Veer.

3/5 ( One time watch ) Smile Very Happy Very Happy Very Happy

VEER Review:-

What is it all about?

Salman Khan can do anything; the lion hearted macho man is there for help when needed but his ‘mass’ appeal can't save this creaky epic drama from doldrums.

Director Anil Sharma’s visual and aural bombast with Shaktimaan Talwar’s script's soap-opera heart is a tedious 3+ hr epic struggle for the viewer who asks for courage to sit through.

This love story of a yawnier played by Salman (too good) who in the zest to fulfil his father promise suddenly starts chasing a Rajkumari (new find Zarine Khan- no comments) and the movie moonwalks from some Madhavgarh in Rajasthan during 1862 to London where the warrior who in his swash for the lady buckles his Pitaji played by Mithun Da (competent as ever) plan and kasam and keeps everybody waiting to the extant that you wish to gift a ‘talwar’ to the hero and ask him to cut his ‘pyaar’ and show us some real ‘maar’ and deliver what has been actually promised and promoted. ‘Veer’ opens up solidly and the first ten minutes make you believe that its truly an epic in the making, as you are just getting use to the pleasure of watching Salman breaking necks and stealing the treasure of the goras as a pindari warrior, the introduction of the mohatarma in this epic action drama broadly makes the interest escape without any trace and you are left feeling awkward by the spectacular gaze this nature would command.

Without any connection, feel or emotion.

‘Veer’ gives new meaning to a ‘costume drama’ that it is a drama primarily about costumes.

The dress code is completely out of sink and the research is pathetic.

Imagine an Indian pindari warrior wearing roman war jackets which we have seen in American period epics like Russel crowe’s gladiator, Arnold’s Conan the Barbarian, Brad Pitts Troy etc etc.

Yeah, Dharam paji also wore something like this in Dharam Veer but it was helmed by the late magnificent Manmohan Desai who had this unique ability of telling one story in 12 different films.

Apart from blunders in writing other noticeable blunders in this period costume drama are as follows.

Salman wears a suit made of Jacquard in 1880’s, 90’s and on top of it wears an Australian hat in 1890’s. Indian rajkumari wears gloves and gowns, Salman and Sohail in London College wearing the dress of a Maharaja. Yes they both go to college to study English culture.

Anyhow, we still need to figure out what made Salman pen this story… maybe he is a fan of Dharampaji and Manoj Kumar….. Remember the baap beta thingie in Kranti and the climax of Veer is similar to the Bollywood premier desh bhakt Manoj Kumar urf ‘Bharat’ film.

Wow, how ‘India Heart’ is that.

Sharma is so invested in transforming his hero a warrior into a lover that he reduces the surroundings into caricatures. The extras pindari warriors especially are wildly hysterical and energetic. Sohail Khan irritates. Jackie Shroff is unconvincing. The lingo they speak is amazingly untraceable and you don’t know from where they have come from. Sajid wajid music though melodious doesn’t waste any opportunity to pop up and test our nerves as the heat of the battle gets colder frame by frame. Salman is the only saving grace in this spectacle which scores enormous highs in production values, cinematography, look and somewhat in music.

The Story…….Of Course

Imagine giving a pen and a paper to a kid and ask him to pen the ‘Mahabharatha’, the same thing happens to this ‘Veer’ where the writing is superbly amateurish. Set in 1862 (after the 1857 mutiny. mind you.. anyways), the bravest, the toughest, the strongest of the Pindaris is Veer (Salman Khan) As Veer takes on the might of the British Empire, he also has to fight the conniving King of Madavgarh (Jackie Shroff) as well his own jealous tribesmen. At stake is his love for princess Yashodhara (Zarine Khan), daughter of his sworn enemy. At stake is his thirst to avenge his father's dishonour.

What to look out for?

Salman in the barbarian act blowing his nostrils with the deadly look in his eyes tearing people and breaking their neck is superb.

In sync or out sync, the movie is a visual delight.

Mithun Da is effective as ever.

What not?

Salman in this 3+hr epic period drama fights for 5 times which includes the long climax and the rest of the time he is busy in singing duets, ball room dancing in London where he had gone to study?.

Rating **

Recommended: An Epic struggle that requires a soap opera heart and lots of dheer (patience). Strictly for Salman fans who never mind the story in being a part of the actor’s glory.
