Folks, a new Salman Khan movie has debuted and true to form this one too is utter garbage if you go by the critics.
Here’s what a sample of critics has to say on Salman’s Veer, which released in theatres today:
Veer…doesn’t weave it together with enough imagination or panache. This mega-scale love story has patches of power but mostly veers between being ridiculous and plain boring.
You have to be a braveheart to watch Veer.
Salman Khan [who has been credited as the story writer of VEER] takes TARAS BULBA, adds GLADIATOR, CONAN THE BARBARIAN, TROY, TITANIC and even KRANTI [the end is a straight lift of Manoj Kumar’s Dilip Kumar starrer] and comes up with this khichdi which gets unpalatable after a point.
Entertainment and Showbiz:
Veer has everything…high budget, big stars, good camera works, well designed costumes. But it missed the main thing…Story!
Salim Khan, one of our most iconic screenwriters, deserves a better tribute than son Salman, credited for the film’s story, churning out this unbelievably hackneyed period disaster.
Director Anil Sharma has never been known for his subtlety, and here, sinking his teeth into the painfully melodramatic script, he goes at it hammer and tongs, taking one megabudget misstep after another.
