O teri: Movie Preview
Starring: Pulkit Samrat, Bilal Amrohi, Sarah Jane Dias, Sara Loren, Mandira Bedi
They say Fortune always favors the brave. Well, then they are obviously talking out of their hat. For it sometimes also accidentally shines on the hugely reticent and plain bumblingly lucky.
Prantabh Pratap (PP) & Anand Ishvaram Devadutt Subramanium (AIDS, in short) are ordinary journalists doing ordinary stories, facing ordinary pressures of life when a quirky turn of events changes their lives.
A chatpata mix of non-heroic and therefore relatable heroes, 'O Teri'! is a very real, very believable, very wry and satirical look at what our country has become. As seen from the eyes oftoday's youth. It speaks their lingo and reflects their thought process. Set in Delhi, the powerhouse of the country, if it seems to offer a comment on how all the big cogs function, we totally deny we intended it.
Music: 'O Teri' is young peppy album. 'Butt Patlo' and 'Phollo Karta' are good but offer nothing new. 'Akhan Vich' is contemporary and rmeinds of Vishal - Shekhar. 'Ummabakum' is nonsense as far as lyrics are concerned and equally badly sung by alleged girlfriend of Salman Khan, Lulia Vantur.
All-in-all, O Teri is a breezy, bread and butter soundtrack that might want you to jam on the dance floor with your friends.
Critical Response: Film will receive average to good reviews at best as such political satire do get good reviews but such massy cliche treatment will work as minus.
Final Verdict: Film will have to fight two other new releases 'Youngistaan' and 'Dishkiyaoon'. Film will get decent release in around 800 screens but will find difficult to sustain even if it gets initial.
