Rapid-fire jokes range from dumb to occasionally offensive and snide, but the wicked script is still undeniably funny.
Mr. Kumar and Katrina Kaif mug and dance and work hard, but they're not called upon to play characters so much as shtick figures, and the cartoonish world they inhabit isn't appealing or buoyant enough to carry the day.
The screenwriters manage to redeem Khan; but it's not quite enough to save the movie, which, given the velocity of the frantic action, should have played brisk and buoyant.
Most jokes fall flat. Except when directed at Bollywood itself.
Post interval, you end up restless. And fidgety. Because nothing really connects.
While the film does make some clever swipes at thinly concealed industry heavy hitters, it also relies heavily on tasteless gender, ethnic, and sexual stereotypes.
Even though it is a spoof, the film is often tediously exaggerated and downright silly, relying on sheer buffoonery to get the narrative moving.
Farah Khan adds a lot of spunk and flamboyance into Tees Maar Khan, but it only goes so far.
The plot at the high level involves a professional con man stealing a large quantity of antiques from the police. The problem is that very little time is spent on that. The first half an hour is used to build up a couple major characters, and from then on the film meanders to the final 30 minutes, which is where the story actually finds some sympathy and emotion.
The musical pieces are somewhat catchy and the dance choreography and sets are always colorful, but these shouldn't be the reason to watch this picture. The opening and closing credits are worthy of note.
The characters are lively, over the top, and this definitely helps keep the film afloat when the story is lacking. Akshay Kumar is a good lead con man. Akshaye Khanna, while only playing a supporting role, turns out to be more amusing than Kumar. The beautiful Katrina Kaif is eye candy, but unfortunately that is all she contributes to this picture. Both, her character and performance are forgettable.
When the 130 minutes are up, Tees Maar Khan just gets by. Watch it and move on.
Tees Maar Khan s an 2010 Hindi action comedy film directed by Farah Khan, starring Akshay Kumar, Katrina Kaif and Akshaye Khanna in the lead roles. Anil Kapoor and Salman Khan make a special appearances in the film as well.
Tees Maar Khan revolves around an overconfident conman named Tabrez Khan (Akshay Kumar) who has been a criminal from birth. (Yeah you read that correctly, he stole the doctor's watch and nurse's chain on the birthing table) Tabrez is a thief who is capable of opening any lock in the world, be it on a flying plane or a running train. The story revolves around how he undertakes a job to rob a train containing millions of dollars worth in precious antiques. Tabrez's love interest is played by Katrina Kaif as Anya Khan who nails her bimbotic airhead role to perfection.
Not my cup of tea. It all looked like a lot of goofing around was captured in a camera and eventually put together as a movie. One of my friends took part in a Bollywood Competition and Sheila Ki Jawani was her talent piece so truth be told I just watched this movie for the song. (and Katrina oozes sensuousness in the video.)
