When Sheila Ki Jawani first hit the small screen, the junta went berserk. Suddenly, Sheila was being touted as the next Munni and Tees Maar Khan as the next Dabangg. But, while Dabangg (with Munni intact) got rave reviews from the critics, Tees Maar Khan has failed to impress the critics. In fact, one reviewer has gone ahead and said that the film is not even worth a free ticket.

Nikhat Kazmi, film crictic, who gave the film 2.5 stars, wrote, " Sadly, Tees Maar Khan begins as a spoof and remains a spoof, till the very end. All the characters end up as mere caricatures and completely fail to build up an emotional quotient in the film." She feels that even though the film has colour, humour and pace but nothing seems to fall in place in terms of plot and character connect.

Tees Maar KhanIf you think that was ripping the film apart, wait till you read this one. Renuka Rao, film critic, Daily News Analysis, has termed the film a catastrophe. "Tees Maar Khan is a classic example of a cluttered film in which a hodgepodge of characters incoherently jabbers ludicrous dialogues building up an odd plot that just refuses to make any sense at any point of time," wrote Rao.

She did not even spare the superhit jodi of Katrina Kaif and Akshay Kumar. "The so-called superstar jodi of Hindi cinema - Kumar and Kaif - has hardly any moments together, and individually both deliver pathetic performances."

Even Taran Adarsh, who is known to support mainstream Bollywood films, has not spared Farah Khan's Tees Maar Khan. " The film gets messy in the second half, especially since Farah and her team of writers attempt to pack just about everything in this hour. Also, a couple of scenes don't register well. The sequence involving the 'headless ghost' appears futile. The heist is plain ordinary and doesn't conjure up the magic on screen. The finale in the courtroom and the premiere of the film fall flat as well."

All in all, Tees Maar Khan has not lived up to critics' expectations and they have left no stones unturned to lash out at the two time hit director. Wonder if Sheila will manage to salvage the film at the box office.

Tees Maar Khan Takes Huge Opening Reports Negative


Saturday 25th December 2010 09.00 IST

Boxofficeindia.Com Trade Network


Tees Maar Khan took a huge bumper opening across the country but the reports are not good. The film is a sure shot hit on the strength of its opening but whether it becomes a blockbuster is in doubt as collections in the evening at places could not keep up with its bombastic start in the morning. Saturday is a holiday which could help but Sunday will tell where the film is going. Another plus is two weeks of no competition.


The other two releases of the week, Toonpur Ka Superrhero and Isi Life Mein had very dull collections and could not register at the box office due to the Tees Maar Khan wave.


Band Baaja Baaraat had a rock steady second week of around 7.50 crore nett. The two week total is around 15.75 crore nett. ABOVE AVERAGE


No Problem dropped in week two with around 7.25 crore nett business The two week total is around 28.25 crore nett. FLOP

Drop on Friday evening shows for a big film is very rare..
This kind of manufactured hit usually leads to backlash..because people feel conned.
Unlike Dabangg where Salman showed a new side to him and send fans & non fans into a frenzy..
Akki & Kat continue with their "comedy"  and sexed up much funnier can Akki much sexier and dumber can Kat's role get...
Akki -Kat will continue with their brand of films and remain successful..good for them I guess!

2010's best entertainer

By: suketu | Dec 24, 2010 08:32 AM

This classic entertainer is Farah Khan's 3rd movie after Main Ho Na(2003) and Om Shanti Om(2007).Intererstingly this is also Akshay Kumar's 7th film with Katrina Kaif in 5 years(almost all of them have been hugh superhits).This movie is based on Peter Seller 1966 comedy "After the Fox".

As you know(and for those who donot),the phrase "Tees Maar Khan" refers to people who brag and boast a lot about their achievements but donot have much to back their big talk with.This phrase is widely used in North India.


Akshay Kumar(called Tabrez Khan) is not just the world best con thief but is not just fearless but also has very little shame or remorse feeling on his profession.He successfully manages to evade the police every time with the help of his cronies aptly called Soda,Dollar and Burger.(reminds one of Musafir 2004 and Dhoom 1 2005 and Dhoom 2 2007)

He is assigned a final challenege by industrialist smugglers Johri brothers to steal antiques worth Rs 500 crores from a heavily guarded train.

The big question is whether he will be able to achieve this and if so how.
Since this is a "happy ending" movie,the answer to this is not the biggest secret in the world.Supporting Akshay in his bid is his aspiring over-the-top actress girlfriend Katrina Kaif(called Anya) and a populat film star played by Akshat Khanna(called Atish Kapoor)

10 Reasons why this film works

10)Akshay Khanna impresses as the Oscar-desperate top film actor and adds a lot of humour to say the least.
9)The film doesnot give the feeling of dragging on and one looks forward,always to the next scene.
8)The length of the movie of only around 150 minutes is perfect-neither too much nor too less.
7)Several scenes are very entertaining and the train scenes takes the cake.Donot wish to kill the suspense-watch for yourself.
6)Songs:-Sheila Hi Jawani.Pl read my detailed comments on this song later in this review.Also impressive is the title track "Tees Maar Khan" among the songs."Happy Ending" also makes an impression.
5)Akshay Kumar is back in business with another convincing entertaining performance of the likes of his previous movies like Mohra,Daava and Barood and the fearless and shameless con master(Tabrez Khan) in the world.
4)The flashy costumes and settings is apt for the movie and make the film seem much better than it otherwise would.
3)Sheila Katrina ("You dirty dog") as the over-the-top aspiring actress performs well and does justice to her role.This is another hugh superhit for her and whatever people say,statictics donot lie.This is her 9th HUGH superhit in the last 5 years consolidating her position as the most successful actress in Bollywood today(For those who think its Bebo ,we agree to disagree.Statistics donot lie).Kat is the most hardworking actress in Bollywood and rightly deserves the top slot.Difficult to imagine she has been in the industry only for 7 years.She may not be the most goodlooking or convincing acting wise but her dedication is the best among the actresses now.
2)Farak Khan and her husband's vision for the movie and execution has been top class to provide sheer entertainers for the audience.Importantly she has also brought out the brings best from Katrina(difficult to imagine it's the same actress whose health was an issue late 2009).
1)Stress buster light hearted entertainment.This is a pleasurable nice spoof movie till the very end which makes you enjoy and leave the theatre with a happy stress-free feelings.Surely one of those movies which you would want to see again(which is the class of real good movies) and the perfect receipe of a movie these days.People have more than enough stress in India these days and donot wish to watch tense,depressing movies like Guzaarish,Kurbaan and My Name is Khan.Movies like TMK are the perfect receipt to be entertained with a stress-free and light hearted flick like Ram Lakhan and Krishh.

Why it could have been better

2)The second half is not as impressive as the first half and could have been better inspite of the interesting twist in the plot 2nd half..
1)Not all the songs are impressive.Farah and her team could have done much better.

Sheila V/S Munni

To set the record straight in a short sentence,
Sheils is streets ahead of Munni.
If Sheila is Roger Federer,Munni is only Jim Courier.
To understand the psyche of "Munni" ,pl read my previous diary post(applicable to a lot of people in life) below(part 2) :-

To sum it up a lion(Sheila) never boasts she is a lion.Everyone knows that.Its only the wolf(Munni) who claims to be one and is figured out and eaten alive.

Like Roger Federer regularly gives tennis lesson to top 10 ranked played,similarly Katrina Kaif as Sheila has given a hugh (free) lesson to Malaika Arora in item numbers.

This song is a classy one and the steps,settings,movements and lyrics also have a certain sophistication in it ,missing from most previous popular items songs in Bollywood.
Katrina is perfect in the song and like SRK in Don and Vivek Oberoi in Rakthcharitra,noone could have done it better.

Sheila Ki Jawani is the best item number in Bollywood ever so far and takes the standard of item numbers to another level.Thanks Farah.

Interesting facts

1)Twinkle Khanna Anil Kapoor and Salman Khan all have guest appearances in this movie.
2)Sanjay Dutt is the narrator in this movie.
3)One of the producers is stunning good-looking "Twinkle Khanna" ;)
4)Priyanka Chopra was to play the role fo Kartina initially but Farah changed her mind(thankfully) in favour fo Katrina
Katrina same girl operated a yr ago hard work second to none
5)The promotion done by Farah Khan ,Akki and Katrina has been unprecendented-all major cities in India,Dubai,London,New York,etcGoes to show there is a lot of hard work and sheer determination behind the films success.The audio of the movie was aptly launched on a train by the TMK team.Not to forget,the beach party they had 3 weeks before the release in Juhu(a novel idea) which saw record crowrds coming in to watch Akki and Kat.Way to go Farah!
6)And as if this was not enough,Akki 's back has not in the best shape.Hats off to Akki for carrying out most promotions(in India and abroad) as planned without complaining one bit of his back problem.No wonder hes one of the 3-4 A plus stars since several years-loads of mental toughness and unmatched dedication.
7)Shah Rukh Khan has reportedly not been happy TMK was made without him as reported on several occasions in the press.FYI,Farah waited 2 yrs for him to give dates which in any case is far too much.
8)The film was promoted on Bigg Boss with Farah and Katrina appearing on the show.
Katrina,inspite of what happened on BB4,looking stunning in the episode with a certain "Mr Salman Khan".

My opinion

This movie,is by far,the best entertainer of 2010.It is ,by no stretch of imagination the greatest film ever but it does what a film has to –thoroughly entertain.Farah Khan is turning out to be a master at this.Another important thing about the success of this movie is that it has been a total team effort with Farah and her husband Shishir providing excellent vision,leadership interms of scripts,characters,actors choice,music,settings,etc backed by impressive Akshay and Katrina.well done all 4 of youJ

All in all,this is a good family entertainer and while its not the greatest,considering the standard of movies in 2010,it's the best this year and will work wonders for sure this winter holiday season.

The early cold weather in India has been very gladly laid to rest due to Farah Khan's Tees Maar Khan's Sheila and the rising temperatures associated with "Sheila Ki Jawani".

One suggestion to Farah Khan-Pl have the premiere show of your next movie at Inox,Nariman Point in South Mumbai and not Metro.

Hope you enjoyed reading my review as much as watching this movie(or more!:)) All the best for a "happy ending" to 2010 and see you next year.
