Steer Clear of Veer

It is amazing that even after two decades in the industry; Salman is doing trashy films like Veer. What is astounding is that Anil Sharma is regarded as a ‘director.’

Salman Khan plays Veer, Mithun’s son. Neena Gupta is his mother and Sohail is his silly brother. They are all Pindaris, a barbaric and forever-intoxicated warrior clan that loves murdering the British and plundering Royal treasure. Our hero falls in love with voluptuous Rajput princess Zarine Khan, who has Aryan Vaid and Puru Rajumar for brothers and Jackie Shroff for a father. Jackie and the Brits are sworn enemies with the Pindaris and want to defeat them in battle. Salman hides his identity to marry Zarine. But will they have a happy ending? Is love more important than your country?

Veer is nothing like Wanted. Instead, it is a tediously long and boring movie that could put you to sleep. In fact, some children dozed off during the screening and the adults managed to stay alert thanks to coffee.

The battle scenes of Veer are like Troy, the father-training-his-sons-to-fight will take you back to 300 while the rust-tinged Pindari celebration scenes are reminiscent of Gangs of New York. The film is unabashedly violent with necks and bodies being sliced and blood flowing like water.

The camera moves in slow motion, long enough for you to memorize the lines on the actor’s face. There are a lot of shots taken from the top only to give us a view of Zarine and Liza’s décolleté.

The editing is choppy making the scenes seem disconnected and abrupt. Even a 10-year old could have written better dialogues. In one scene, Zarine bites Salman so he says she had made a watch on his hand and now his ‘accha samay’ will start. Could they get cheesier? Salman has to battle it out against a WWF wrestler to win Zarine’s hand in marriage. To save him, Zarine courageously calls out to him, revealing his identity. This is straight out of TV serials as the camera freezes on everyone’s stunned expression. People were laughing at this point.

The state-dinner scene is more like a fancy dress competition with Zarine dressed like a Barbie doll (though she is an Indian princess), Lisa wearing a ball gown and another firang wearing a saree. The men’s costumes are rugged but the women’s costumes are garish.

There is silly toilet humour courtesy Sohail Khan and even a toy tiger. How can a period film have such jokes? You can’t help laughing at all the firangs speaking Hindi and even singing songs.

The background score by Monty is repetitive and so is Sajid-Wajid’s melodious score. The songs are pleasant but they all sound similar and if a song plays every fifteen minutes, people are bound to get bored. Each time Veer is angry, we hear a tiger’s roar. And believe it or not but the lyrics of the last, Opera-like song are: Don’t say alviday!

The direction by Anil Sharma is pathetic through most of the film. It doesn’t capture the beauty of the relationships between the characters which is why you don’t take it seriously at all. Surprisingly, he creates a few moments of intrigue in the second half.

If you still want to see Veer, see it for the lavish production design that captures the beauty of India and England. And for Salman Khan, of course. He is in ship shape and completely dominates the screen. He looks equally handsome in the warrior and University student avatars. Watching him shirtless is a delight and he is very convincing in the sword-fighting and horse-riding scenes. His star-power and sex appeal make the movie tolerable. The University scene where Salman defends Indian has been done-to-death but manages to make an impact.

Mithun Chakravorty does a remarkable job as Salman’s father. His screen presence, fitness levels and energy is laudable. Neena Gupta is pleasant though she hardly has much to say. Sohail Khan tries hard to be lovable as the younger brother. Lisa Lazarus looks pretty but is wasted. Zarine Khan’s voice is the same as that of Katrina Kaif and she even ‘acts’ like her. She looks pretty and cute but has a fixed, wide or teary eyed gaze throughout the film. Her chemistry with Sallu is zilch. And did princesses ever wear shocking pink nail polish? Did nail polish even exist in the 19th century? She will have to lose weight if she wants to stick around.

Veer is a father-son story, a love story and a story about sacrifice and patriotism but at the end, it is just a joke because of its laughable and ridiculous happy ending and poor execution. ‘We-Uh’ is how the Brits pronounce Veer. So we will tell you to ‘Steer Clear of We-Uh!’
