Set in the Agra and Mathura, Tevar is all about Pintu (Arjun Kapoor), a local Kabaddi star. More than concentrating on the sport he loves bashing up eve teasers.
Accidentally, he ends up rescuing a damsel in distress Radhika (Sonakshi Sinha) who is being eyed amorously by a local political goon, Bahuballi (Manoj Bajpai).
Bahuballi falls head over heels over Radhika and wants her at any cost. Once again, Pintu accidentally takes on the most powerful local goon with political backing. Too many accidents I must say.
Pinku takes it upon himself to ensure that Radhika leaves safely to America. Thus starts many chaotic chase sequences, a rather unconvincing hide out location and the blossoming of an understated love.
Tevar is insipid, a film that lacks a script and has too many forced action sequences that just do not make any sense.
As fas the actors go, with this one, Arjun Kapoor has proved that he is bad with action flicks; remember Gunday.
Sonakshi Singh looks tired and rightfully so as she has been set hopping like a banshee. I must say she has some US connection because in Action Jackson she wanted to see a naked Ajay Devgn, so that she could marry and guy settled in US and in Tever, she wants to go to US. Oops!! Now that’s being rude.
Manoj Bajpai as Bahuballi looks convincing but I am amazed with the kind of juvenile jokes that he has been made to crack. For instance, Bahuballi swears not to put on trousers till her gets his girl after a run in with Pintu, and parades around in boxer shorts. So crass and below the belt.
The film’s supporting cast; Deepty Naval, Raj Babbar and Rajesh Sharma; do add value but they are hardly there.
The shocking thing about Tevar is the film’s director, Amit Ravindarnath Sharma, who is the same guy who has directed the award winning Google Advertising.
Now going by what he has done in Tevar, I feel either someone else was behind the Google Commercial or he has not directed Tevar and his name just accidently appears in the film.
An adaptation of the Telugu blockbuster Okkadu, Tevar can best be avoided.
It has a mundane storyline, it has a mundane Sonakshi Sinha and it is a mundane copy of R...Rajkamar; well we are talking about a disastrous Tevar, th...1.0
