The moment you hear 'Ooooo teraa teraa teraa surroor' echoing in the cinema hall you know that he is back! Love or loathe him, but you just can't ignore him. After 'The Xpose' Himesh Reshammiya tries to revive his acting career with yet another film, an action thriller which unintentionally ends up as a comedy!
Claps: Slick Production values, dreamy locales of Ireland, Music
Slaps: Story, Performances, Direction
What's New: A fitter looking Himesh Reshammiya who doesn't miss a chance to flaunt his well-chiselled physique
Popcorn Refill: Any time during the film
Plot: Raghu (Himesh Reshammiya) is a gangster who finds himself entangled in a mess when his girlfriend Tara (Farah Karimaee) is held captive in a Dublin jail, after being falsely implicated on the charges of drug smuggling by an unknown man named Aniruddh Brahman. Now it's up to our hero to turn into a man on mission and find out the real culprit in order to prove her innocence.
Performances:No doubt Himesh has given us some good music in the past but what's with playing 'Assalam Vaalekum' and 'Teraa Teraa Teraa Surroor' in the background ample of times? Is it to tell us that you are watching the same man who gave us these hit songs so please forgive him for his 'acting' and deadpan expressions? Only Mr Arranha has answers to that!
Farah Karimaee makes her Bollywood debut with this film and half the time she looks clueless about things around her just like us! In fact Himesh in one of the prison shots tells Kareemi to ‘cut wrist’ which is inscribed on his T-shirt. Was that message secretly meant for us to expect our hero to 'act'?
It is extremely disheartening to see stalwarts like Kabir Bedi, Naseeruddin Shah and Shekhar Kapur being just reduced to props! Monica Dogra and Shernaz Patel too have nothing much to do a film except for adding more minutes to the run-time.
Direction:The film has some good production values and Ireland looks like a dream but one wished that the director Shawn Arranha had spent some efforts on the film's plot which sounds so silly that you will probably find yourself chuckling at some parts. Ahh..less said about the corny dialogues the better! Sample this- 'Tu apne aap ko bahut bada paagal kehta hai na..chal paagal paagal khelte hai.' We are even told that Himesh's Raghu loves dialoguebaazi. Now you know why these gems are in store for us!
The film has some good music (T-Series stable you see!). But they ain't as memorable as the tracks from 'Aap Ka Surroor'.
Verdict: We give 'Teraa Surroor' SLAPS! Watch it only if you are a true-blooded Himesh fan who doesn't mind spending bucks to watch him act! For rest of us, let's just stick to his songs instead or else don't say we didn't warn you before when you leave the cinema hall saying, 'Main tera picture mein gumraah hua'.
