Love, romance, action, fight, songs and not to forget the item number; name it and you have it in Tevar. It is an out and out entertainer consisting of all the mainstream elements. Directed by Amit Ravindernath Sharma, the film is completely in Bollywood style.


For the ones who have watched Okkadu starring Mahesh Babu or Ghilli starring Vijay, the Telugu and Tamil version of the same, there is absolutely nothing new in this film. The story also gives a slight resemblance of Chennai Express where the hero saves the heroine and eventually they end up falling in love.


Be it the stunt sequences or the action-packed chasing scenes or the romantic moments and emotional dialogues, these have been done and overdone in many films in the past. With a complete lack of novelty, Amit Sharma has given his audience a proper commercial potboiler. Post Pk, this film is a good weekend break without dealing with content heavy subjects.


After Finding Fanny, Arjun Kapoor is seen in a completely different role. With his heroic moves and ‘macho’ action sequences, he seems quite convincing as Pintu in Tevar. There seems nothing new for Sonakshi Sinha as she comfortably fits in as Radhika. We have seen her in the same role in most of her films. Manoj Bajpai, to a large extent, has shouldered the script. However the film has not pulled out the best from him. Be it the colorful aviators, funky scarves or his ‘jockey’ boxers and stylish jackets, he steals the show and stands apart amidst the group of thugs.


Produced by Boney Kapoor, Sanjay Kapoor and Sunil Lulla, the characters of the film are bold and confident except  Pintu’s, whose role needed much clarity. One constant element that led the film forward was the song break that happened at equal intervals. Just when you think the punch dialogues were too heavy to take, you get a surprise item number by a famous star. All the songs are good visual and aural relief from the not-so-boring yet monotonous script. A good job by Sajid-Wajid and Imran Khan on the music scores. A must mention of Clinton Cerejo on background score as most of the chasing and action scenes were lit up by the BGM.


Overall, Tevar is another film that comes, stays and goes. There is nothing new one can expect out of the script. If you are up for some action-packed weekend, then Tevar could be your option.

Verdict: An action packed entertainer that is seen over and over again.
