Critic Reviews for Veer-Zaara
Though it doesn't quite match recent classics like Kabhi khushi kabhie gham in sheer technique and production sheen, in-depth star casting and thorough entertainment values make this a must-see for Bollywatchers.
Go see and get swept away in this festal melange of colour, sights and sounds.
Veer-Zaara is so arresting, its scenes so full of beauty and colors, that the three hours go by almost too fast.
For once, that thundering soap-opera music (which makes a Douglas Sirk movie score seem subtle) is welcome; it drowns out any embarrassing audience sniffles.
Director Yash Chopra manages to fight several culture wars while milking the melodrama.
Audience Reviews for Veer-Zaara
3 hours of epic awesomeness... Veer-Zaara is a fun, tear-jerking, romantic musical with a powerful message of doing what is right and honorable, true love conquering all, the truth that sets you free, and the equality of all men and women no matter what race or religion. I enjoyed this tremendously. It was heart-pounding at times and so well-acted and directed.
For a Bollywood movie, it really wasn't that bad . It's a pretty good love story, even if it is the same story of every other Indian romance, namely: "Oh no! I'm going to be married in an arranged marriage, but I'm in love with someone else!" The reason for its slightly lower score is the fact that it just goes way over the top with the teary melodrama, the preachy "India should love Pakistan and vice-versa" themes, and the heavy-handed "women are equal" themes.
This movie was cute and sad, I was surprised how much I really liked it.
