Critic reviews and ratings

  • The saving grace of the film is its pace. And the action scenes that make you watch the film till the end.

  • You have to be a braveheart to watch Veer.

    Critic rating (?)

  • If like me, you can find delight in the sheer delirium of a bad Bollywood film, then see Veer, otherwise do catch it on DVD. In a few years, this sensibility and swagger will be extinct.

  • Salman has taken a gamble, it's now left to be seen how the audience reacts to this fight to get the British out of India. Somehow, I get this feeling that the dice is loaded in favour of Veer Salman!

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...there's nothing left to hold your attention in this prolonged misadventure that loses a lot due to a tardy screenplay, a headless script and an old-fashioned direction.

  • ...a must for all Salman Khan fans - he delivers an inspired performance and keeps you interested in the proceedings even when the story doesn't.

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...the director has miserably failed to lift the film from its mediocrity despite of having the best stars and a big budget to mount his extravaganza.

    Critic rating (?)

  • One expects to see lavish war scenes with a scintillating fight to the finish. The screenplay builds up to it but fails to deliver the coup de grace.

    Critic rating (?)

  • This is what a vanity project looks like. And it's not pretty.

  • Salman is the last Khan standing. It makes not a whit of difference to him and his directors that the space for retrofitted 70s packages has shrunk to nothing...

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • The director does have a signature of sorts (hyper-commercial with a penchant for kitschy sets and sweeping outdoor locales). Here that is wasted on a period piece that has little else to hold it together but Salman Khan’s physique and hair extensions.

    Critic rating (?)

  • 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!

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • Watch it if you're a die-hard Salman fan. It's an epic-sized period film with tacky special effects. Unacceptable in these times.

    39

    Critic rating (?)

  • This clearly is Wanted in a period setting, and if you are a Salman Khan fan, I guess you would want to catch it. On second thought, if you really are a Salman Khan fan, you wouldn't care for my opinion, would you?

    Critic rating (?)

  • It’s too long, too bland – and yet, this muscular throwback to a yesteryear cinema culture isn’t without its occasional pleasures.

    Critic rating (?)

  • is about a warrior and at the same time, it's a love story too. Sadly, neither does it evoke any patriotism, nor does the love story make your heart go dhak-dhak.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • Veer, mounted on lush production values, shows you everything in hyperbole: the costumes and jewellery, the battlefield, the body count, the unattainably beautiful princess, and the comic-book style hero.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...a father-son story, a love story and a story about sacrifice and patriotism but at the end, it is just a joke because of its laughable and ridiculous happy ending and poor execution.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...this apparent period film owes its origins less to the genre Hollywood movies. It belongs more to Bollywood of back in the day: a song designated for smokers every few minutes; crispness, hardly a narrative virtue; three hours, the accepted clock-time.

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...gets details of the period and locations in place. But the inner conviction and a genuine passion that made Anil Sharma’s Gadar: Ek Prem Katha so special are completely absent...

    29

    Critic rating (?)

  • It's a film so dated it hurts. Imagine Manmohan Desai's atrocious Mard, but minus Mr Desai or Mr Bachchan. Yes, that bad.

    19

    Critic rating (?)

  • ...doesn’t have is any kind of a script or a director, forget about any other related sense or sensibility. The film is a brutal assault on all your senses...
