From the misty pages of history comes a story of extreme valour, fierce pride and poignant love as the British enslave India with their devious Divide and Rule policy, kings and nawabs fall to their guile and cunning and entrust their precious kingdoms to the foreigners. Except for the brave Pindaris, who prefer death to dishonour and will fight to their last breath to save their land - their mother.The bravest, the toughest, the strongest of the Pindaris is Veer.
As Veer takes on the might of the British Empire, he also has to fight the conniving King of Madavgarh as well his own jealous tribesmen. But then the stakes are high. At stake is his love for princess Yashodhara, At stake is his thirst to avenge his father's dishonour. At stake is his very existence itself. Cannons roar, swords clash in fierce battle, the dead pile up. And when the dust settles down on the blood soaked land one valiant warrior stands head and shoulders above them all Veer! Veer - an epic saga of bravery and drama, treachery and love...
Veer is a lot of tomfoolery but with aesthetics.
Even the keen, wait for DVD but Salman Khan fans - go for it!
I don't know about bravery and courage, but I recognize the attempt in making an epic entertainer and I see partial success. Unfortunately, only partial. And yet, Salmaniacs can rejoice!
Salman in top form after the success of Wanted, Anil Sharma handling a "patriotic" subject, cult favourite Mithun Chakraborty in an important role, horses, swords and canons providing a period ambience and a trailer that showcased some high-testosterone war sequences and lovely landscape cinematography. Veer looked good enough to revive the period drama genre. Alas, it just ended up entertaining the critic in me.
