Teraa Surroor Movie Review


STORY: Raghu (Himesh Reshammiya) does the right things, the wrong way. He worships Tara (Farah Karimaee) and she loves him too. However Raghu’s philandering move drives her away to Ireland, where she is caught for drug peddling. Raghu believes she is innocent. Turns out, she has been framed by a mysterious man called Anirudh Brahmin. Can he rescue his girl from Dublin and nab the real culprit?

REVIEW: On paper, Teraa Surroor sounds like an edge-of-the-seat action thriller. However, the execution is far from it. Instead of mounting tension, which is crucial for this genre, the film is inundated with umpteen songs and romantic flashbacks that eventually kill the pace and continuity. The use and abuse of infinite Slowmo sequences is another issue.

Also, one expects Himesh to entertain – be it intentionally or unintentionally. He gives brooding looks and poses, mouths dialogues in a robotic way instead. His Katrina Kaif like co-star Farah Karimaee is decent but equally drab as far as her onscreen presence is concerned.

But it’s not just them. The story and direction are weak and the dialogues are repetitive. “Ireland ka lock down period bees minute hai” is harped for 20 times.

Songs are probably the film’s only asset. We wish there were more originals and less recreated ones though. The cinematography and background score compliment the story. However, the unfolding of events take a tad too long, which lets down the initial build up. The climax could have been crisper. While the lead actors barely act, the bad guys over-act.
