Film Review | The dud of all Khans
 
Crass humour, poor performances and pointless scenes make it one of the worst films of the year.
 

Sanjukta Sharma

Tees Mar Khan

When a bumbling villager with a toothless grin, suffering from what looks like leucoderma, is forced into playing the role of a British man in a film within a film because he has white skin, or when a newborn steals a gold chain because his pregnant mother watched too many crime capers, you can make a safe conclusion: a lazy and thoughtless writer is at work. In Tees Maar Khan, which has this repulsive brand of humour, it's the job of the writer duo Sirish and Ashmit Kunder. Tees Maar Khan goes down in my roster as one of the worst films of 2010. Clichs collapse on clichs; racist and sexist jokes become tools to arouse laughter. It has some direct and unimaginative references to popular culture and films, including a TV commercial for Happy Dent about a dark-skinned man with sparkling white teeth. Skin colour is a refrain and a gag throughout the film.

This is director Farah Khan's third film. She is good at caricaturing the industry she is part of. In her own brand of brazen humour, she belittles Bollywood delusion and shallowness—and in extension, herself, because her two films Main Hoon Naa and Om Shanti Om Khan have been unapologetic exercises in the same boy-girl-song-dance tradition. In this film, Khan's direction screams of tasteless slapstick. It has a loud, breathless pace. Actors are uncomfortably on the edge, using physical gestures to unnecessarily raise the film's pitch. Almost every scene in Tees Maar Khan is hollow and pointless.

The original film is by the Italian neo-realist master Vittorio Di Sica. It is a relatively unknown film called After the Fox , with Peter Sellers in the lead role, about a criminal who dupes a sleepy, coastal Italian village by enlisting its residents in a grand heist. When it ran in theatres in 1966, the film did not impress critics and some said it was the director's worst.

None of its absurdity is redeemed in the Indian remake—perhaps it's a worse film now.

Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar in Tees Mar Khan

Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar in Tees Mar Khan

Akshay Kumar plays Tabriz Khan or Tees Mar Khan who, in the bizarre opening sequence, cons two CBI officers on a flight from Paris to India. On landing, he heads straight to Mumbai's Mehboob Studio with his flunkies, where his girlfriend Anya, played by Katrina Kaif, is performing an item song for a clownish, air-kissing film director. In collaboration with a pair of conjoined twins who are also dangerous criminals, Tees Maar Khan plans a heist involving precious national treasures and dupes a village named Dhulia into helping him. He is also helped by a Bollywood actor Atish Kapoor (Akshaye Khanna) who is obsessed with the idea of winning an Oscar. Tees Maar Khan poses as "Manoj Day Ramalan" (brother of the Hollywood director "Manoj Night Ramalan") and convinces the pathetic actor, seething with jealousy over Anil Kapoor's real-life Slumdog gig, that this film is his ticket to Hollywood. The writers' postshots at Hollywood, especially Danny Boyle and Slumdog Millionaire, are misplaced and laboured. The attempt at lighthearted self-flagellation turns sour and flat. Every villager in this film is an idiot and every woman, a simpering, brain-dead person.

Kumar has nothing to show that he has not shown in all his films. He tries hard to pass off throbbing veins caused by excessive strain on his vocal chords and muscles look like acting. He can't muster even a semblance of a screen presence. It's time his utter lack of talent is accounted for in the film industry. How far can an actor go before he can prove that he has no surprises hidden somewhere? For Kaif, this role is a regression. All she has to do is look and speak stupid.

The only bright spark is Khanna, who seems to have got the fake seriousness of his role right. The other good thing, which we figured out in the film's promotional videos, is Farah Khan's choreography. Sheila ki Jawani has an attractive studio-controlled scale and vibrancy. Her trademark inventiveness as a choregrapher is visible.

But a song is not a film. Tees Maar Khan is no different from the numerous offensive, slapstick films which pass off as comedies in our theatres. It's the kind of film I don't want to watch in 2011—or ever.

Apparently it has taken a historical opening at the box-office!

Oh well I guess we have to accept that this is the type of movie which the masses love sadly.

Tees Maar Khan: Don't fall for this con

Whether or not you want to sit through Farah Khan's "Tees Maar Khan", you should watch the end credits. The whole cast is shown "at the Oscars", apparently getting Academy Awards for the film. The whole sequence is farcical and reeks of arrogance, especially when you consider the kind of film you have been subjected to.
Yes, I did say subjected to because one of the year's most awaited and hyped films has turned out to be a dud of the highest order. Worse, a director who showed such a lovely, irreverent, tongue-in-cheek style in her earlier films is now resorting to offensive, crass humour that isn't the least bit funny.
Khan has admitted that they have bought the official rights of the Peter Seller starrer "After the Fox", but nowhere does it reflect in the credits. Instead, the story is credited to Shirish Kunder, who apparently can wear several hats at a time, given that he is also credited for editing, background music, screenplay, dialogue and producer of the film.
The story in question is about Tabrez Khan (Akshay Kumar) aka Tees Maar Khan, an "international criminal" and the world's most ingenious crook. You would find that hard to believe, considering he comes across as someone who is rather dimwitted, and the gags he uses to escape from the clutches of law are hairbrained to say the least.
Nevertheless, Khan is asked to rob a huge consignment of antiques from a train, and decides to use a film set as a cover for the heist. He convinces Aatish Kapoor (Akshaye Khanna, perhaps the only ray of light in this film) to act in a film about a group of revolutionaries in British India, and also enlists the help of a small village, convincing the residents that they are all part of the film. Also in the scheme are his cronies, called Dollar, Burger and Soda (don't ask!) and his airhead girlfriend Anya (Katrina Kaif), who has ambitions of being an actress.
Farah Khan's films are over the top, but in the past, that has been backed by some crackling writing and dialogues, both of which are sorely missing in this film. Some of the gags, (like using a blind albino man to play a Britisher) may be considered offensive, while others are not funny at all. The director tries to bring in some emotion in the form of Khan's bond with the villagers, into what is supposed to be a comic caper, and ruins it further.
The much-talked about 'Sheila Ki Jawani' is the only hummable song in the film — everything else just fades away. And the performances are uniformly bad — from Kumar, who hams it up like there is no tomorrow to Katrina Kaif, who must realise that it takes acting skills to play a bad actress. She clearly doesn't have them. The only good thing about this film is the other Akshay, the one with an "e". Akshaye Khanna is pitch perfect as the Oscar-obsessed superstar who will do anything to be in Anil Kapoor's shoes at the Oscar ceremony.
But even that isn't enough reason for you to go and watch this movie. Not worth the humongous ticket prices they are going to charge you to watch this "blockbuster holiday film".
