Box Office: Tees Maar Khan takes 3rd biggest opening day collections

MUMBAI: Farah Khan's Tees Maar Khan has taken the third highest opening day collections ever after Dabangg and 3 Idiots. The movie's net collections on Friday in India were Rs 127.50 million (Rs 12.75 crore).

As was reported earlier by, Salman Khan's Dabangg holds the record for the highest ever opening day net collections with Rs 145 million (Rs 14.50 crore). On the other hand, 3 Idiots' first day net collections in India were Rs 130 million (Rs 13 crore).

While the movie has got poor reviews, the audience thronged to the theaters on Day 1. However, it remains to be seen whether Tees Maar Khan will be able to inch past Dabangg and 3 Idiots' opening weekend net collections of Rs 485 million (Rs 48.5 crore) and Rs 400 million (Rs 40 crore) respectively.

Saturday and Sunday will be crucial for the fate of TMK at the box office.

Tees Maar Khan: Farce far from Farah's best

There are a few things you just don't try in India.

1. Farce: It's never easy to make a farce, let alone make a farce that a mass audience will gladly lap up. Why not? Well, name one farce that you actually remember that was made in India. Ok, now that you have barely found one or two after much thought, let's shortlist it to one that made truckloads of money. No, Gadar was not a farce. Also, most people probably even don't know that farce is a legitimate sub-genre of comedy.

2. Films About Films: Ok, Om Shanti Om… directed by Farah Khan herself. But that had Shah Rukh Khan and every other star from Bollywood's telephone directory making a cameo and taking many digs at the most worshipped stars from the business. What are the chances it would still work without SRK, without the whole galaxy of star cameos or even half the irreverence that Om Shanti Om had?

3. Remake a flop film: Okay, now this is really pushing your luck. You pick a farce, don't cast your lucky charm despite the film demanding a Khan and worse, pick a film that didn't do well in the first place, don't bother changing it much except adapting it to the Indian milieu. The original Peter Sellers-starrer After The Fox, directed by Vittorio De Sica, itself had a botched up climax… So how do you stay loyal to a flawed film?

4. THE Item Song 20 minutes into the film: Why would people want to stay once they have seen 'Sheila Ki Jawani'?

5. Hype, then pre-empt reviews and defend the film saying it's for the people and not for critics. Now, that's just invitation for a massacre of your work.

So yes, Hats off to Farah Khan for doing a few things that are considered suicide. Too bad the writing doesn't back her vision up nor does the cast have the energy and charm required of such an endeavour. The jokes are silly and this is not necessarily a bad thing if you have an actor who can bring the corniest line alive. Shah Rukh Khan could do that. Not this Tees Maar Khan who only speaks in forced, contrived analogies. To borrow one from the film, saving a mistress's honour and/or reviewing Tees Mar Khan are equally futile.

She does stay quite loyal to the original and makes only a few cosmetic changes. The sister is now the girlfriend, the MacGuffin has to be robbed off a train and not a ship, it's an Oscar-hungry hero here, not an aging star, and the villains now are conjoined twins.

Within the framework of the remake, Farah throws in some moments of pure fun — like Katrina having a Marilyn Monroe moment with her skirt, the twins wondering why their informer didn't tell them the score or more about the match and just hung up abruptly saying Over and Out, Akshaye Khanna sulking watching Anil Kapoor's Oscar glory and abusing his manager for mistaking Danny Boyle for Danny Denzongpa when approached for Slumdog Millionaire or Akshay Kumar breaking Salman Khan's hug with Katrina at the end of a song and yes, that delightfully energetic 'Sheila Ki Jawani', of course.

So there are at least a dozen gags that will make you laugh but the point is from Farah, we expect a lot, qualitatively and quantitatively, more.

There's this just brilliant dig at the neo-realistic art-house cinema when the film within the film ends with a voyeuristic camera catching a sight of a villager who flees from the fields, holding the mug before The End sign comes up abruptly.

Farah obviously does not care much for that. She cares for Happy Endings. The film wouldn't win awards, so what? She would give everyone in her crew a statuette. Do stay till the very end to see what happens to her award. Now, that's a statement by itself. And, that's the Farah we know.

Tees Maar Khan

Genre: Comedy

Director: Farah Khan

What are the two things you require in abundance to enjoy 'Tees Maar Khan'?

Impossibly low expectations (or none) and an utter disdain for anything remotely connected to logic, reasoning or good taste. 

If you possess any of the above you might laugh more than thrice during the entire running length of this latest cinematic creation from Farah Khan. The ease with which Shirish Kunder (credited with the story and dialogues) & Farah Khan maul Peter Sellers' 1966 comedy 'After the Fox' beyond recognition is truly baffling since the original was no hot potato either but compared to this monstrosity it seems like a classic. 

The plot perfunctory at best involves a con artist Tabrez Mirza Khan A.K.A. Tees Maar Khan (Akshay Kumar) who can crack any lock in this world just as easily as he can slip out of custody. He's hired by the Johri Brothers (Ram & Raghu), who for no apparent reason are Siamese twins, to steal back their consignment of gold that was confiscated by the cops. We are told then that the gold shall be transported by train and simple logistics suggest that to pull off a job of this magnitude and transport so much gold would require a crew of atleast 300 people. Khan comes up with an elaborate plan which would have him convince an entire village that hes shooting a film there and in the process unwittingly involve them in the robbery. To make the film look authentic he also convinces an Oscar-crazy Bollywood star, Aatish Kapoor (Akshaye Khanna) to be part of the film, promising him a long-desired Oscar. The rest of the running length involves the shooting of the faux film leading upto the heist. 

Shirish Kunder must have thought that his constant banter and in-jokes about the industry must have been witty, fresh and cool but honestly they are nothing but a means to make you squirm in your chair and constantly look at your watch. Relentless politically incorrect humor about skin color reaches its nadir when an albino is picked to play a British officer and made to chew gum so that he appears to be speaking and Akshay Kumar can ad-lib his lines. Be it the 'Day-Ho' jibes at A.R. Rahman's 'Jai Ho' or the abundant crass "Gay" humor, everything is overdone till the point of leaving a bad taste in your mouth. Its almost like the makers were trying to test your patience. 

Though I didn't particularly like it, 'Sheila Ki Jawani' still manages to be one of the liveliest things in the film. The other songs play no role in the film other than padding up the running length. 

The acting unsurprisingly lives upto the material by being loud, over-the-top and hammy as hell. Akshay Kumar for ages has been able to play only one character and that is himself and that involves a lot of walking in slow motion and/or smirking. Katrina Kaif actually acquits herself well as the bimbo trying to make it big in the movie industry but whats with the accent? Sorry my bad, in a movie this stupid why would I even bother asking how come someone has an accent alien to any Indian one. Akshaye Khanna's pretty desperate these days if hes been reduced to this kind of buffoonery. 

'Tees Maar Khan' possesses nothing that it can offer as entertainment worthy; this weekend the only ability it'll possesses is to con people into watching it thanks to the marketing campaign and the names associated with it. Beware, you have been warned.
