After 8 failed attempts to launch himself as a leading man, music composer, singer and actor, Himesh Reshammiya is back with yet another made-to-order feature film.
The trailer of Teraa Surroor seems far slicker and much more intriguing than anything that Himesh has attempted as an actor. And believe you me, he has tried it all, from playing a singer stalked by Mallika Sherawat in Aap Ka Surroor to Akshay Kumar’s sidekick in Khiladi 786 to (ahem) a superstar in The XPose.
Now he is back slimmer than before. Ah yes, that’s another ongoing trait in Himesh’s career graph as an actor. He sheds some more weight for every performing avatar. In Teraa Surroor, he plays a mysterious man out to save a damsel in distress named Tara, played by a very exotic looking Farah Kareemi, from an international crime syndicate.
Himesh plays a man desperately in love and ready to go to any lengths for it. The film directed by Shawn Aranha (former assistant to Apoorva Lakhia) tries a global look and succeeds in looking slick and sexy. It is shot in European countries where characters talk across a glass partition in a prison. One visitor in a prison shot tells the beautiful inmate Kareemi to ‘cut wrist’ which is inscribed on his T-shirt.
Talk about prison etiquettes.
And what do you know! Himesh Bhai does some serious love-making with his beautiful co-star (who looks a bit like Katrina Kaif, Nargis Fakhri and Kitu Gidwani).
Pahlaj Nihalani already has the scissors out.
Interestingly, the film has stalwarts like Naseeruddin Shah, Kabir Bedi and Shekhar Kapoor in the cast to prop up our leading man’s attempts at hero-giri. Naseruddin Shah plays a prisoner mouthing this: “Salaakhon ke uss paaar log aksar ghum ho jaaten hain…aisi koi salaakhen nahin jisska chabhi nahi bani”.
But the classic line is given to Shekhar Kapoor who tried very hard to look intense while he mouths this nonsensical line, “Never give a bad girl a good boyfriend.”
We can only hope that the dialogues in the film are better than that.
