A Veeroic effort!

Love it or hate it, but Salman Khan’s Veer is one heck of a brave effort, something we would like to call a “Veeroic” effort.

At a time when comedies rule the roost in Bollywood, Salman Khan and co. opted for something distinctly different. A mixture of history, mythology and nationalism narrated with a fine balance of romance, comedy, action and the age old formulaic masala.

Also, Salman is a writer to watch out for in the future. He has great sense of drama and sets up the movie pretty well. The romantic portions were well-written and the dilemma of the princess – to choose between her kingdom or lover – was potentially a great plot for a thrilling second half, that it didn’t happen is the director and screenplay writer’s fault.

Sure, the film is not without its share of major flaws, but then its the effort we are talking about here, something both the media and critics for some reason have overlooked.

Quick recall, and history based films have always been risky, the mightiest of them have failed (Read SRK with Asoka and Aamir with Mangal Pandey). Spending 50 crores plus makes it even more riskier.

So purely for the risk and effort the makers have taken and the fact that the film has managed to do reasonably well at the box office, Veer deserves a mention as one of the first successful films of the year and the decade.

  • YES VEER IS a veeroic effort.they made movie for poor people nd poor audience accept their veeroic effort.
    but some inteligent like me deslike their poor effort.coz i m not any poor people.

  • thanks indicine for the article i am sure veer will do tremendus business in the second week also no matter what critics and media has to say salmaan’s fans are always with him i have already watched the movie 3 times and i am planning to go again this weekend.and i am sure veer will be the first superhit of this decade
    and sahil and megha if you don’t agree plz avoid commenting b’coz this is only for those who appreciate good work

  • Adiii, u r not a poor people but an ignorant people. Learn English spellings b4 writing any comments any english. Ur parents r so rich, din’t dey send u 2 school ???????? LMFAO. Poor people r da backbone of a nation nd dey r greater in number. Dat means u admit Salman z liked by da most of da ppl ? Lolz. Megha, u r a mental freak. U will never understand da standard of Veer, bcoz Veer z 4 normal ppl, not 4 mental freaks.

  • Sahil, it really doesn’t matter what others think, but we have never written fan-pleasing articles here.

    Your free to have your own judgement, but don’t restrict it only to Veer. You have been here long enough and I guess you know us better :)

  • @ Indicine

    Megha and Adii r like a disease n VEER threads. plz dont ban dem. i laugh at dere immature comments. so plz u retards keep em comin.

    Eagerly waiting for ur reviews of Ishqiya and Rann..:-)
    Both f them are gettin pretty gud reports..

  • i always love salman n i know that he has a great sense of cinema thts y he never doing negative characters or never giving kissing scene on screen. he prove it again

  • if people actually think bout it. Veer is an heroic effort. at least da film is trying to give us da audeince something new. Salman is exprimenting wid his roles and working with different directors. he should be appluaded for da dat.

    many actors just stick wid certain groups and certain roles. yes, as long as dey r successful ders nowt wrong wid it. but dey should try to experiment also.

    @ Sahil

    u can say wat u want. nowt wrong wid dat. but no1 can stop VEER from becoming minimum HIT.

    @ Hina, Rajib, Adhideb and evry1 else. kepp up da good work.

  • Rann and Ishqiya are getting more than 3.5 stars
    all critics are giving 3.5 or 4 stars for both movies.
    so all sallu fans now u will say again that critics hv conspiracy agains veer.
