The super hit music composer is back with bang after two years!
Himesh Reshammiya is back with Teraa Surroor that has finally hit theatres. Himesh fans are in a celebratory mood since the film has finally hit theatres. So is this Shawn Aranhaa directorial worth your time this weekend? Read on....
What's it about:
Back in 2007, Himesh Reshammiya made Aap Ka Suroor which was a musical blockbuster that also gave Hansika Motwani her first big break. Aap Ka Suroor was entertaining because Himesh didn't take himself seriously and we got to enjoy some foot tapping tunes. Nine years later, the singer turned actor is back with Tera Suroor which is loosely based in concept on its predecessor but has better production values, lavish locales and a new girl (Farah Karimaee) opposite Himesh. This time around the film revolves around Raghu (Himesh) trying to prove the innocence of Tara (Farah) who's captive in a Dublin jail for drug smuggling. Before you think it's a one dimensional plot, wait there's more! Raghu seeks the help of Santino (Naseeruddin Shah) who is a convict who's made a living with breaking out of jails around the world. With his guidance he plans to rescue Tara. The second half flash backs to Raghu's childhood and why he turned out to be the person that he is. There are several plot twists and turns, car chases, action scenes all filmed against the scenic backdrop of the Irish capital. Himesh of course is the star of the film and has totally reinvented himself physically to play the part.
You might love him or hate, but there's no denying the fact that Himesh has a strange appeal to the audience that transcends age groups and other barriers. In Tera Suroor, Himesh does a fantastic job of playing to the gallery and giving his audience what they want. He knows his strengths and weaknesses and plays on the former without letting the latter get better of him. As Raghu his physical transformation is remakrable and while it might look odd and weird in the posters of promo, the film does justice to why he's managed to shed those kilos and look ripped. Music of course is the trump card of the film. Through the course of the film there is a background track that plays as an ode to the prequel. Tera Suroor has several tracks that will remind you why loved the original sound track so much. The camera work is good in the action scenes and both Shekhar Kapur and Naseeruddin Shah add drama to the story. Farah looks great on the big screen, we wish she had more to do in the film though. The stand out moments are the ones where Himesh does some dialoguebaazi and his patriotic dialogues when a random firang tries to take off on an Indian in a gun practice alley.
The plot could have been better and the writing definitely needed some doctoring. Also the twists and turns in the second half are way too many to keep a track of. Himesh's change of heart after the final revelation in the second half is a bit unconvincing. It would have been nice if there were scenes that made references to Aap Ka Suroor just for nostalgia sake. Also the foreign actors who play various small parts in the film needed better guidance. One car chase sequence ends up being unintentionally funny because of a poorly cast cop.
What to do:
Teraa Surroor delivers as a true Himesh Reshammiya film. It is a typical masala entertainer with some great music. If you liked Aap Ka Suroor, then Teraa Surroor definitely won't disappoint.
