Tees Maar Khan - Preview

wogma rating: Watch if you have nothing better to do (?)
quick review:

Tees Maar Khan makes me admire Farah Khan (Director) and Shirish Kunder (writer) for how they choose not to take anything seriously, themselves first. But, they are sniggering amongst themselves. It's one thing to laugh at anything and everything from - the umbilical cord to patriotism - and it's a whole other thing NOT TO make us laugh with them. So obnoxious is the film along with its stars Akshay Kumar and Katrina Kaif that the subtle points that Tees Maar Khan seems to make, come across as completely accidental.

Bond-ish title music, Inspector Gadget-ish look -

Farah Khan is known for the Bollywood references in her films, seems to be going international in her tributes.

Supposedly, the entire film can be looked upon as inspired by After the Fox, but of course Farah Khan denies it and says it's based on Amar Chitra Katha comics. Uhhhh...How can a film be based on Amar Chitra Katha?! The comics are themselves based on stories from mythology and folklore!!

I looked up the 30-second trailers here and was completely disheartened by the one-liners. If this is supposed to pull us into the theaters, I dread the deadpan lines that are waiting to greet me in the feature. An Akshay Kumar film, by definition has to be loud. But, to not even expect good punch-lines makes me want to weep.

But why cry dear, when Sheila is here. Who needs to laugh when all they want you to do is drool, right? Yes, the song has grown on me. But I guess my 'like' doesn't count because I like to hear it more than watch it. But for those of you who are smitten by Sheila's jawani, here goes -

Music reviews:
milliblog - "Sheila and Wallah save this Khan from maar"

Dunkdaft - "soundtrack didn't impress me much, but given a absolutely mad fun film, may be it can do better on screen"

music aloud - "7/10"

Apun Ka Choice - "Lacks the spunk"

Bollyspice - "'Badey Dilwala' and the Theme song are by far the highlights on an album full of songs that are good but not "oh my gosh" outstanding"

Bollywood Hungama - "4/5"
