Direction and Music
Farah Khan’s direction leaves something to be desired. For one, the film’s decibel level is just too high. Also, too much of farce without even a hint of emotions and with barely anything believable in the drama makes the film far less enjoyable than what it could’ve been had these points been taken care of. Vishal-Shekhar’s music is very good. Sheela ki jawani is a super-hit song and its picturisation (Farah Khan) is sensational! ‘Wallah re wallah’ is also an entertaining number. The title track (composed and penned by Shirish Kunder) is interesting. The other songs are good but should’ve been better. Lyrics (Vishal Dadlani and Anvita Dutt Guptan) go with the mood of the film. Shirish Kunder’s background music gets repetitive as there is an overdose of the title track and music in the background, all through the film.
P.S. Vinod’s camerawork is very nice. Editing (Shirish Kunder) is alright. Production and technical values are of a good standard.
The Last Word
On the whole, Tees Maar Khan is a disappointing fare although it is funny in parts. Nevertheless, it will do more than average business because of its absolutely bumper initial, the absolutely fantastic ‘Sheela ki jawani’ song and dance, enhanced admission rates in many cinemas, the holiday period, and lack of big releases next week. Farah Khan will have to be prepared for brickbats from the audience together with the bouquets (in the form of bumper collections in the first week).
