VEER

As the British enslave India with their Divide and Rule policy, kings and nawabs fall to their guile and entrust their precious kingdom to the foreigners. Except for the brave Pindaris, who prefer death to dishonour and will fight to their last breath to save their land. The bravest, the toughest, the strongest of the Pindaris is Veer (Salman Khan). As Veer takes on the might of the British Empire, he also has to fight the conniving King of Madavgarh as well his own jealous tribesmen. At stake is his love for princess Yashodhara, daughter of his sworn enemy. At stake is his thirst to avenge his father`s dishonour. At stake is his very existence itself. Cannons roar, swords clash in fierce battle, the dead pile up and when dust settles down on the blood soaked land, one valiant warrior stands head and shoulders above them all - Veer.

Watch this if you liked: “Asoka”, “Rang De Basanti”, “Jodha Akbar”, “Troy”

Interestingly, "Veer" (in English: The Bravest One) was written 20 years ago by Salman Khan himself, who called this as his dream project. Partly based on the Russian novel Taras Bulba by Nikolai Gogol, if one notices in detailed after watching the film, it is also much inspired by Hollywood 2004 blockbuster "Troy". Salman had to endure hard training in order to double his total weight in preparation for his role as the warrior. Also, Katrina Kaif was suppose to play opposite Salman but she backed off last minute due to her scheduling problems so due to that, Salman did a special casting selection to have his lead actress who must at least resemble her and that's how newcomer Zarine Khan came into the picture.

As usual, Salman maintains his hot tempered persona on screen and never fails to flaunt his muscular body. Aside from that, he exudes more of his romantic side, pleasing his female audiences. Newcomer leading lady Zarine Khan seems promising with her decent performance, while veteran actors Mithun Chakraboty and Jackie Shroff were just passable. Sohail Khan (real life younger brother of Salman) may come across irritating at times, but it was nice to see the chemistry with his elder brother again.

Plot wise, it's heavily copied from "Troy" (from its battle scenes to its solo fight between Salman and Mithun) but Salman claimed that it was more difficult to write the love story and comprising it together with the fighting scenes. In addition to that, director Anil Sharma seemed to have hastened war scenes to make way for the love story. Also, the repeated love song throughout the film created such an uneasy, anti-climax atmosphere.

In the film where war epic scenes are given priority, "Veer" also gives the best effort to showcase the British empire of the late 18th century. The backdrop of the old England and also some parts of old India was very well shot and presented by cinematographer Gopal Shah. For action sequences, there was good effort in handling epic battles and combat scenes, however those involving Salman were sadly unconvincing. "Veer" delivers a soundtrack worth listening to and is perhaps one of the best albums music director Sajid Wajid has come up with.

Overall, "Veer" is watchable with Salman Khan in the lead. With a better written plot and less repeats of the same song, perhaps the movie could have been something worth watching.
