Veer Movie Review
Set in the late 19th century - although dates in no way correspond with costumes, language or even age and appearance of actors - this Anil Sharma-directed clunker is the story of a Rajputana warrior clan, the Pindharis, who swear revenge on the King of Madhavgarh (played by Jackie Shroff) after he joins hands with the British and cheats the Pindharis of their land and deceitfully slaughters their men.
The film's director, Anil Sharma, may have touched a chord with a similarly jingoistic approach in his Sunny Deol-starrer Gadar: Ek Prem Katha, but in Veer the chest-thumping melodrama appears mechanical and excessive. The film's action is visceral with several blood-splattered slaughter scenes, but often runs the risk of coming off as ridiculous. Thanks IBN
