      Anupama Chopra NDTV Katrina is gorgeous and Akshay Kumar strains every muscle in his body to make you laugh. But the lazy writing does them in. Rated: 2/5 May 11, 2015 Full Review Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Five minutes into the film, and I wanted to flee. Rated: 1.5/5 May 11, 2015 Full Review Russell Edwards Variety Rapid-fire jokes range from dumb to occasionally offensive and snide, but the wicked script is still undeniably funny. Dec 28, 2010 Full Review Peter Galvin sbs.com.au The screenwriters manage to redeem Khan; but it's not quite enough to save the movie, which, given the velocity of the frantic action, should have played brisk and buoyant. Rated: 2.5/5 Oct 30, 2017 Full Review Sukanya Verma Rediff.com It's all dumb, dumbed down, jarring or contrived. Rated: 2/5 May 11, 2015 Full Review Mayank Shekhar Hindustan Times Most jokes fall flat. Except when directed at Bollywood itself. Rated: 1/5 May 11, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member My love for Farah Didi knew no bounds after watching Tees Maar khan: Some very obvious reasons: Character 1. The Characters can't be more appealing, from Tees maar Khan alias Tabreez Mishra who is a con artist with magical powers to Aanya, a good for nothing wannabe actress and acrobat dancer to Johri Brothers, two twins who can't be separated from each other to a Sasta Leo Caprio without any acting skills who is obsessed for an Oscar; they all transcend boundaries of great character. Storyline 2. If there is one movie that rightfully comes close to enigma and beautiful portrayal of this movie, then it has to be inception. The plot of the film is unbelievable; I mean literally unbelievable. Managing to develop a con artist who is blessed with such magical powers that he stole watches and jewelry the very moment he was born. And leaving no stones unturned in making us believe that a whole village can be fooled to do a robbery of a train full of antiques. 3.Dialogues Dialogues were up there with Shashank Redemption, to give you a taste of few: "Textbook se copy karta hua student and tess maaar khan ke bheje se nikla hua plan kabbi fail nahi hota." 'Tube se nikla hua toothpaste or tees maar khan ke die hue jubban kabhi wapis n jaati' "Kuute ke muu se haddi or tees maar khan ke haatho se gaadi dono cheene Bakar h" And my personal favorite was Boss, dhoop aa raha hai.... Accha? Jao Suraj ko bolo thoda baju me hat neko!" 4. Cameo If there was any scope of brilliance left in the movie, it was filled by Sallu Bhai's cameo in 'Wallah re wallah." Some not very obvious reasons to love Farah Didi 1. So, Bollywood has the habit of subtly glorifying Racism, but Farah Didi managed to do it so openly without any repercussions, which is commendable. In one scene while referring to a criminal the dialogue says, " Ismail koyle se kaala h, ya koyla ismail se kala" and "Ismail ke pass do hatyar h, ek. Raat ka andhera, dusra Ismail ka smile." 2. In one dialogue which is repeated more than once Tess Maar khan says "Tawaif ki lutti izzat bachana; aur tees maar khan ko qaid karna; dono bekaar hai" and you can't expect anything more from the movie now. 3. In one scene Farah didi wasn't able to find a white man to play a Britisher's role in her film, so she takes the help of a person with albino and stuffs bubble gum in his mouth as a language barrier again without any consequences. Conclusion This is one such movie that should be kept in a museum to tell people that this is a quintessential masterpiece and this is the only movie one should set as a standard for a perfect movie. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/18/23 Full Review Audience Member Absolutely a terrific musical hearkening back to the glory days of Hollywood musical films. The dancing, music and choreography are enjoyable and superbly done. The plot is comically hilarious even better than many of the old time Hollywood favorites. This is a movie for fun and entertainment. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/27/23 Full Review Ahmed M Tees Maar Khan is not a good movie, but some jokes are worth laughing while 99 percent of them are not. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 05/08/16 Full Review Audience Member In the beginning I wasn't into it. Akshay was portraying his common "cool guy" persona so i was going to turn this off after the first half hour. I am glad i didn't cause this movie was actually really really funny. The songs were catchy and fantastic. Not much serious drama or action. Mostly comedy and a moment or two that evoke a mental "awww". The songs were well done and the thing this movie does best is it makes fun of itself and other bollywood movies. I don't want to spoil a lot. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member half a star for being funny .. I so love akshay kumar's acting in a comic role Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 01/25/23 Full Review Audience Member hoularious and turns the world upsidedown for tees maar khan Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/19/23 Full Review Read all reviews
