    Tezz rating: 3 out of 10(Divya Solgama wrote on 27 Apr 2012)

    In 1980 B.R Chopra and his son Ravi Chopra gave us India’s first Train based thriller ‘The Burning Train’, with loads of stars and less of technical support. The movie dint meet the expected business at that time, but till date is one of highly watched film on television channels. Sadly after that we did not have any more film based on this genre. After a huge gap Director Priyadarshan brings us his latest film – ‘Tezz’ based on the same genre. With huge star cast, mega budget, high special effects, etc let’s find out whether this film will hit the bull eye or might end up being just a plain clone of b-graded bollywood disaster films.

    “Tezz” is story of Aakash Rana {Ajay Devgan}, an engineer trying to settle in London. Due to lack of work permit, he is deported and hence separated with his wife Nikita {Kangana}. Four years later, he comes back to take his revenge from the UK government. With support from his colleagues Aadil {Zayed Khan} and Megha {Sameera Reddy}, he plants a bomb in a fast passenger train. He starts negotiating with Sanjay {Boman Irani}, the chief railway traffic controller followed by Anti Terrorist negotiator Arjun Khanna {Anil Kapoor}. Arjun on other side with help of his team tries to nab down Aakash and his gang, thus starting a cat and mouse chase between law and law breakers.

    Story has lots and lots of shades from 1980’s classic ‘The Burning Train’ and few more Hollywood flicks like ‘Unstoppable’ and few more. There is nothing new or different for anyone who has feasted on such types of films. Screenplay is pretty weak and movie is forced with plenty of dramatic twiss and turns. Keeping aside the Sameera Reddy Action stunt or the Anil Kapoor – Zayed Khan Chase scene there is nothing credible to watch here. On the flip side the whole Hindi Dubbing turns you down followed by many bad visual effects {Avoiding train collision, Mohanlal trying to save passengers and few more}. Not to forget the cinematic liberties taken by the makers and forceful insertion of Emotional angle in almost each and every character in the film. The dialogs support these crap scenes and are typical filmy and corny at times. The length is not much but still editor needed to trim the film and make it bit sleek. Camera work is fine and has given the film the required an international touch.

    Music by Sajid Wajid is pretty average. ‘Laila’ was total misfit and unwanted. “Tera Bina” is a nice song and gives you a relief in the film. Background music is fine, but nothing impressive.

    Priyadarshan started his career in Hindi films with good dramatic films followed by his mastery in comedy films. Lately he tried to change his genre and did few dramatic and romantic films, but sadly none of them worked. Out here he tries to venture into a new genre of Action thriller which has been tried and tested by film makers like Abaas Mustan and few others. But with films like ‘A Wednesday’ and ‘Kahaani’ the film makers have excelled the intelligence level of the audience. Priyadarshan and other film makers will have to cross this rose bar and then only can they give us big budget fine thriller. Sadly all they blow is the money of the producer and hopes of their viewers.

    Ajay Devgan is a fine actor and has done such types of films in the past {Blackmail, Qayamat, Etc}, but out here he seems to be sleepwalking throughout the film. Anyone can make out that the makers took some bulk dates of him and finished his major part and added the star value to the film. Anil Kapoor was fine, but there was nothing new or substantial for him in this half-baked role. Kangana, Zayed, Sameera were just average in their small roles. Boman Irani did his part with total justice. Mohanlal was highly wasted.

    So bol meri ‘Filmi Khopdi’ iss film mein kitna hai Dum?

    Dum to bilkul bhi nahin hai. I did not find single memorable moment in this film. The clash of two action kings of their own era {Kapoor in the mid-80s, Devgan throughout the 90s) goes wasted in this wannabe Hollywood thriller. In front of this film ‘The Burning Train’, the only other film valid for a comparison which was made some 30 years ago, stands out even today despite none of these CGI-effects. While watching the film you will be confused whether you are watching a action film or a dramatic film or a potboiler, but I guess towards the end the audience might not even bother to find out as most of them might be busy taking their nap and that too with Tezzzz…
    Avoid this film as fast {Tezz} as you can.

    Ratings : 1.25/5
