Rating: 1/5 Star (One star)
Star Cast: Himesh Reshammiya, Farah Karimi, Naseeruddin Shah, Shekhar Kapur, Kabir Bedi, Shernaz Patel, Monica Dogra
Director: Shawn Arranha
What’s Good: How unintentionally funny the film is!
What’s Bad: Watching Himesh Reshammiya try to act like an enticing hero wooing ladies and making the worst ‘O’ (Orgasm) face ever!
Loo Break: Actually no because you will miss a few laughs!
Raghu (Himesh Reshammiya) is leading a dual life. He is a gangster but his fiance Tara (Farah Karimi) has no clue about it. Farah is a singer with a band. The duo stay with her mom (Shernaaz Patel). After confessing that he cheated on Tara, the duo break-up and this paves way for a major downhill in their lives.
Under the pretense of a performance, Farah is invited to Ireland by Anirudh Brahmin, a guy she meets on Facebook. Farah takes up the assignment and is soon falsely claimed for drug peddling.
An imprisoned Tara calls Raghu for help. Will Raghu be able to help Tara and solve the mystery of Aniruddh Brahman?
Teraa Surroor Review: Script Analysis
Teraa Surroor comes off as one of the dumbest scripts ever. The film’s plot lacks intelligence. For starters, the characters are extremely loosely written. Raghu is the protagonist and hence he gets a background and a flashback too. Unlike his love interest who strangely dresses like a high-school girl. Just to create an illusion of a mystery, the writers introduce a string of characters, that do not help the story much. Imagine, Shekhar Kapur is seen playing an Indian Embassy guy in Ireland but his introduction goes like – “Meet my almost ex-husband Rajvir. He also works in the Indian embassy”.
Another crazy character is Robert Santino (Naseeruddin Shah) who has fled 14 prisons in his life. He talks like a ‘shayar’ and sketches for no reason.
If all this is any less, the twist in the story or should I say the revelation of Aniruddh Brahmin’s character is completely stupid. Also, the build-up towards it is extremely lame.
Worst part is, in the first fifteen minutes of the film itself, Himesh kills a drug lord, cheats with his girlfriend with the least of emotion in any of the acts.
Teraa Surroor Review: Star Performance
Himesh Reshammiya once again tortures us with his attempt at acting. He has one expression in the entire film and shockingly even in his intimate scene. (Is that what non-consensual sex for a man looks like?). He shows off his not-so-hot body often and you couldn’t care less. Hopefully, this is his last attempt because his ‘Suroor’ is certainly not working for us.
Farah Karimi debuts with this film and may it be her last. The girl hardly emotes and in her prison scenes, looks like she is stuck to the bed. She doesn’t cry, laugh or even smile properly, I wonder if it is because of her co-star.
Shernaz Patel plays Tara’s mother. We now know what a favor (acting in this film) looks like.
Naseeruddin Shah seems to be enjoying himself as Santino. He is at leisure cracking random dialogues.
Shekhar Kapur is funny as hell. He gets the most hilarious line in the film ‘That’s why I hate love stories’.
Monica Dogra plays Ellie a lawyer in the film. Her petty character leaves no impact whatsoever.
Kabir Bedi’s cop act too is highly cliched.
Teraa Surroor Review: Music, Direction
Shawn Arranha directs this super dramatic, ‘Keep calm this too shall pass’ kind of film. What is wrong with his direction? He fails to see his constipated actors and their literally effortless (actually literally) act. After a hurried story telling and the worst love making scene in the first 20 minutes itself, it is hard to imagine what you have to sit through for the rest. This film is a torture pre-interval and post it, you have got comfortable with its crass nature.
The music is triggered every now and then. Of course, none of the songs blend with the situations unfolding ahead.
Himesh gets some action scenes and the super slow-mo that they are shot in, give you a horrific feel.
On the chilly streets of Ireland, our leading lady hardly has any clothes on. Don’t ask why!
The car chases are shot worse than a game too. And the aerial view shots of Ireland look like parking game screenshots.
We just hope, the entire team of this film promises to never work together again.
Teraa Surroor Review: The Last Word
Himesh Reshamiya’s Teraa Surroor is more like ‘Terror Surroor’. I am going with a 1/5 for this!
