  NextSukanya Verma in Mumbai
Farah Khan's Tees Maar Khan was expected to be the eagle that soared at the box office this year. Instead, it has turned out a turkey, spurned by audiences and critics. Sukanya Verma explains what went wrong with one of her favourite directors's latest film.

Oh, how the mighty have fallen.

With Main Hoon Naa and Om Shanti Om, Farah Khan, the choreographer-turned-director, demonstrated her flair for dazzling aesthetics and quick-witted humour. As it turns out, both films earned blockbuster status and catapulted her in the league of the leading Hindi filmmakers.

Ever since she announced her new project, Tees Maar Khan, expectations were understandably greater than ever. Moreover, thanks to the overwhelming amount of publicity generated owing to its ritzy item number, Sheila Ki Jawani, the con caper was slated to become Bollywood's grand finale to 2010.

Instead of a hat trick, Farah's rights-purchased remake of Peter Seller's After the Fox was ruthlessly ravaged by audiences and critics.

Expectedly, the film opened well at the box office last weekend -- it is Akshay Kumar's best opening ever -- but collections dropped dramatically after disappointment dawned.

What went wrong?

1. Tacky, pedestrian writing

The Kunders -- Farah's husband Shirish and his brother Ashmith -- had some nifty source material at their disposal. But instead of getting inspired, they botched it up to produce a rather pedestrian, lacklustre, sluggishly written screenplay that was preoccupied in forcibly plugging its titular character's coolness instead of providing a solid enough characterisation to root for him.


Considering humour has such a strong identity in Farah's films and persona, the standard of comedy in Tees Maar Khan is appalling!

The jokes involving an Albino, gay cops or those snide remarks on industry wallahs are much too stupid or snarky to endorse.
From Zayed Khan to Deepika Padukone, Farah is known to extract engaging performances from the rawest of stars.

Here, she's got a reasonably talented bunch to work on, but the acting is completely out of bounds.

With the exception of Akshaye Khanna, everyone screams, hams, goes berserk.

It's almost like an audition for a circus.


Both Main Hoon Naa (Composer: Annu Malik) and Om Shanti Om (Composers: Vishal-Shekhar) boasted of some lilting music.

TMK (Composers: Vishal-Shekhar/Shirish Kunder), on the other hand, has nothing going for it barring the title track and Sheila....

Honestly, those two numbers too wouldn't have caught our attention if it wasn't for the incessant promotions on national television.

The songs are oh-so-blah and boring that even Farah's vivacious choreography doesn't help.


With great power comes great responsibility. And though Tees Maar Khan has the gall to equate himself with Spiderman, his creators appear much too supercilious to understand the virtue of evaluation.

Given the manner in which they have advertised the movie, this inferior piece of filmmaking is a reminder of why Bollywood is in dire need of self-inspection and how easily its folk allow success to sway their judgment.

looked very silly from the promos itself. don't think i will be wtaching this movie. feel that akshay kumar has exhausted his comedy roles and maybe needs to get into something a bit more serious and thought provoking.
