Cast: Anil Kapoor, Ajay Devgn, Zayed Khan,
Boman Irani, Sameera Reddy, Kangna Ranaut
Priyadarshan is a comedy film man. Well, mostly. With Tezz, he has
tried to pull a fast one. Pun not intended.
"English filmein bahut dekhta hoga," says Arjun Khanna (Anil Kapoor), retired
counterterrorism officer in the UK. The same can be said about
Priyadarshan. He liberally
uses Hollywood film Speed as reference point to tezz his train of
thought. It's officially an action thriller, no denying that. You know
something's wrong when you laugh when you're not supposed to.
Aakash Rana (Ajay Devgn), Adil Khan (Zayed Khan. How convenient is it
to use a name like that and then say we're not beingxenophobic?) and
Meghna (Sameera Reddy) planta
bomb in a train going from London to Glasgow.
Railway traffic controller Sanjay Raina (Boman Irani) has just seen
his daughter off on the same train. Sanjay has a personal reason to
stop the bomb from exploding. There's a catch: if the speed of the
train goes below 60 km/hour, the bomb will explode. Sounds
familiar? Never mind. Aakash keeps the railway control room on their
toes with constant
updates about the train, while asking for an insane amount of money.
The film opens with a sullen Aakash in a courtroom, where his marriage to Nikita
(Kangna Ranaut) and stay in the UK has been deemed illegal.
Immigration authorities deport
him to India, only so he could return four years later to bomb UK
trains. Sounds frivolous, feels even more stupid than that. Since it's
foreign setting, a tinge of racism, misleading terror suggestions and
fake tempers (mind you only Indians in high positions) slyly make
entries and exits.
Many questions fly fast and furious: Who goes bombing trains for being
caught living illegally in a foreign country?
