Tees Maar Khan

Medium : Hindi
Starring : Akshay Kumar, Akshay Khanna, Arya Babbar, Katrina Kaif
Director : Farah Khan
Music : Vishal - Sekhar, Shirish Kunder (bg score)

giving two hits like 'Om Shanthi Om' and 'Main Hoon Naa' with the favorite star Sharukh Khan, choreographer turned director Farah Khan had done her new movie with another star, Akshay Kumar. It was heard that Akshay had agreed to do the lead role, after Sharukh had rejected the director's request. Katrina Kaif is once again doing the heroine role for Akshay, their previous projects being 'Blue', 'Singg is Kinng', 'Welcome' and 'Namastey London'. Another major name to be noted in the technicians list is Shirish Kunder, who comes in the role of producer, script writer, editor and even he gave the background score for the movie and Shirish is none other than Farah Khan's husband.

The police force is searching widely for the notable thief, Mirza Khan (Akshay Kumar), who has escaped from their captivity, many times. He is in love with Anya (Katrina Kaif), a struggling actress who is deeply passionate for films. Mirza had committed the task to rob a train loaded with valuable materials owned by the government. He had made a plan using the actor Aatish Kapoor (Akshay Khanna). Mirza appears in front of him as a director. Aatish had agreed to do the movie and the villagers were also participated in the fake shooting episode, where the ultimate aim was to rob the train passing through that village, whether they got succeeded in their task is shown towards the end.

The story of the movie is good, but the foolish presentation of the movie had affected the seriousness to a great extend. Some of the dialogues here and there creates laughing, but the addition of some non sense ingredients had polluted the environment.. The hero's flash back is portrayed in a song, while he is in the mother's stomach, with the help of graphics sequences are good; but the hospital scene at its end is good for a situation in the cartoon magazine for children. Akshay Khanna is shown here as a well known actor, the way in which he believes the fake shooting scene as a real one, cannot be accepted at any cost. The director and the crew might be able to fool the poor villagers, but how a well known artist like him simply keep silent and obey orders of somebody who pretends to be a director. More over the camera looks like a toy only, but they were seriously speaking about putting film roll in it. We might lose our temper, when the visuals shot by the crew has been made into a movie and more over such a movie is winning an oscar award, which is a dream come true for Aatish. The director should explain, whether such a creation is included to generate humor. The two officers following the hero are looking gentle, but their activities are too foolish. The hero is succeeded in escaping from the middle of such a tight security, which is also an unbelievable episode to be noted. The 'sayamees twins' placed as the leading villains and their activities are the best example for un professionalism.

Akshay Kumar is there in his usual style. Akshay Khanna had done the comedy oriented role in his best way. Katrina Kaif is kept here to show maximum glamor. Her artificiality in performance is still there, but it is a confusing one; one might asks, is that deliberately done or is that her realistic approach, only the performer knows. Salman Khan's presence for a single song was not at all needed one. The art work done by Sabu Cyril for the railway track is ok, but the side fence is placed too close to the rails, which in turn felt that the location is a created one. The title sequence done using computer graphics of building models are colorful, but some of the names are moving fastly with in fraction of seconds, which should have been avoided. 'Sheela Ki Jawani...' song and its choreography is a catchy one. The village song is confusing by the improper mixing of real visuals with the cinematic ones. Cinematographer P.S.Vinod ('Musafir', 'Neal N Nikky', 'Striker', 'My Wife's Murder' fame) had given some rich frames.

Though 'Tees Maar Khan' gives you few laughing situations here and there, the total output will only be helpful to lose your temper.

Rating : 4.5 / 10
