Veer-Zaara=One big headache, not to forget the 4 hours 10 mins (3 hours 30 mins movie + 40 min travelling) waste of time!!
Pathetic movie... how can a person do the same thing over and over and over again... and have the audience lap it up every fucking time! I'm talking about Shahrukh "I-Took-Only-One-Acting-Class" Khan. He SUCKS!
I was told, infact fooled into believing that the music was superb! "You'll like the songs even more after you watch the movie." Here's my take on the music - Belch!! C'mon Yash Chopra - can you please perturb your formula a wee bit more - every bloody movie has to follow the same format- one song for the credits, one song falling-in-love sequence, one song my-country-my-motherland, one song during the judaai, probably one qawaali or sufi song for the deewana crazy about his/her lost love. That's bloody it! Same thing in each and every movie. And barring one or two songs, you wont even remember the rest. And those two are played over and over again throughout the movie - probably that's why you'll come out humming them!
Story.... okay, here goes - two idiots - get their life screwed... royally! Twenty-two years of it to be precise... and all the other Hindu-Muslim, Hindustan-Pakistan shit was thrown in to give this much beaten dead horse some life (LOVE STORIES - that's what I'm talking about)! Take a load of this:
"Tumhaare mulk mein saare bete aise hi hote hain kya"
"Woh to nahin bata sakta... lekin saari maaein aapke jaisi hi hoti hain"
And you get the idea, loads of such humaara mulk, tumhaara mulk, adosi mulk, padosi mulk, throw in some tears, correction buckets full of tears and you have Veer Zaara there!
Serve hot, followed with an aspirin.... dont say I didnt warn you!
