Tees Maar Khan could be yet another flop Bollywood movie released in 2010.
Now please do not get me wrong. I am no Akshay Kumar hater. As a matter of fact, I was a major fan of Akshay all throughout my growing years (and still am). However, the kind of hindi films that he has been doing recently such as Action Replayy and Housefull and Chandni Chowk to China is nothing short of disgusting.
Why I think Tees Maar Khan might be yet another stupid movie is because Akshay Kumar stars in it. If one looks carefully at the last 15 films which Akshay Kumar has starred in between 2007-2010:
- Action Replayy
- Khatta Meetha
- De Dana Dan
- Kambhakkt Ishq
- 8×10 Tasveer
- Chandni Chowk to China
- Singh is Kinng
- Bhool Bhulaiya
- Heyy Babyy
- Namastey London
- Bhagam Bhag
One will normally come to the conclusion that he has been choosing extremely bad films. Yet, his market value seems to be quite high.
(I will try writing a longer article on my views of these 15 films in general depending upon your response. Tell me via comments if you want to read an interesting analysis of why Akshay Kumar does stupid, non-intelligent, humourless films.)
Anyhow, out of these 15 movies, only Namastey London and Welcome (of this too, the climax stretched out of the limits of logical human reasoning with some really weird scenes being shot), can be considered to be ‘good’ hindi movies. The rest are pure trash. Minus them from Bollywood, take them away for a moment, consider their production and creation null and void, and you will not have subtracted anything of value from Bollywood. The sad thing however, is that Akshay Kumar, the real action hero of Bollywood, chose to star in these films. I am sure he had his reasons but the fact is that Akshay has been consistently doing films which insult human intellect. Yes, the guy who starred in cult movies like ‘Hera Pheri’ or ‘Mohra’ or ‘Tu Anari Main Sipahi’ or any of the Khiladi movies. He is same guy who also starred in the torturous Chandni Chowk to China.
Only time, the greatest force of all, will determine what is in store for us with Tees Maar Khan. Whether it adds anything of value to Bollywood, or only degrades human intellect, only time will tell.
