This is the story of how the exploits of an amorous buffalo led to the unearthing of the biggest scam this country has ever seen. 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 bumbling lucky.Wikipedia
O Teri Reviews
Too shrill, too convoluted and too dumb, O Teri is an excruciating test of your patience. The first thing I did on leaving the cinema was pop a pill for my throbbing headache. Even Salman Khan's item song in the end can't soften the blow.
I ran for my life in about an hour from this atrocity which calls itself a film, but which is nothing but a series of dismal, embarrassing scenes interspersed with songs that are even more so.
O Teri, despite being loud enough to jolt any laash alive, targets the right scumbags and has more than a couple of fun ideas, not least a soothsaying dog who -- like Paul the Octopus, or a particularly cute magic 8-ball -- predicts the future. Now if only they’d kept the pooch around during the edit.
It’s Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro reduced to noise and nonsense.
Though high on the satirical note, the story-telling in O Teri could have been crisper. While the first half drags, the second half seems like the director is in a hurry to complete the movie. But O Teri can make for a decent weekend watch.
'O Teri' has delivered what it promised in its promo, a hillarious ride with twists and turns and has not misguided. But as the film, at certain important junctures doesn't hold the attention, it is sinking and doesn't stabilize itself. And yes, Salman's very neat apperance in a song at the end, takes your mind away from what you just saw.
O Teri is only for those that are of tough disposition or are blessed with the ability to take any load of bunkum in a darkened movie hall.
The overburdened story unravels under a palpable nervousness to please all. Therefore, too frequent songs, too many gaalis from Kilol, too many subplots (from gamlas to gay sex) and too many poor jokes spoil the show. Overall, the direction of O Teri simply loses the satirical plot, leaving you sighing, jaane bhi do yaaron.
Despite its flaws, O Teri manages to come off as a breezy entertainer that works in the space of its genre largely because of its two lead actors.
The film's a scam, and delivers a fake lecture on corruption and patriotism. In other words, don't sweat for this film, it's completely avoidable.
The filmmakers had enough matter to turn it into a riveting screenplay. Alas, they focused on vulgar jokes, unnecessary songs and some juvenile slapstick moments. What you get at the end of it all is a shoddy product which is not worth watching even if someone paid for your ticket.
Superfluous songs, poor characterization, sloppy editing and shoddy writing are just a few of the problems with O Teri. We think reading the investigation files on the many wrongdoings of the officials of CWG's organising committee including the controversial sports administrator Suresh Kalmadi will be more entertaining than watching O Teri.
O TERI had the potential to be a smart take on political scams and corrupt bureaucrats, but, unfortunately, the film crumbles thanks to a shoddy screenplay.
Unlike the pessimistic but realistic ending of Jaane Bhi Do Yaaro, O Teri ends with the scamsters getting their just desserts and people becoming aware of their notoriety. It leaves us with a false hope -- an empty feeling -- much like the film itself...
O TERI is one of those movies that require no strain on the brain to review. These types of movies are made 'for the heck of it'. There is no thought given to any detailing on film-making. It's as though the producers decided on the cast, then decided on the director and finally, they came on the sets and took it as the mood demanded.
This film, directed by Umesh Bist and produced by Atul Agnihotri, is not what you should be heading to watch this weekend. Even though I am not very happy to say this, you might as well watch Jai Ho on DVD, if your sole purpose is to ogle at Salman Khan on screen.
