Ali Hassan (Ali Zafar), a reporter with a downmarket TV channel in Karachi, is keen to go to USA for a better life, but his visa has been refused six times in seven years. In desperation, he gets hold of an Osama Bin Laden look alike and makes a fake Osama tape which he sells to the owner of his channel to raise money for a false identity, a new passport and better luck with US visa. As one can expect, it is far from smooth sailing for him and his friends, as they get into a series of comic situations.Wikipedia
Tere Bin Laden Reviews
Leading man Ali Zafar has an endearing presence, and Pradhuman Singh as the chicken farmer scores with his comic timing. But in the end the film is only moderately entertaining. I'm going with two-and-a-half out of five for first-time director Abhishek Sharma's Tere Bin Laden. The kind of film to watch on a day you have nothing better to do.
That a film can so convincingly make light of an unbearable tragedy is its astounding comic achievement. What more low-down do you want: Just go ahead and load up on the guilt-free laughs!
If the film suffers it is mainly because of the budgetary constraints. Most of the film is restricted to the interiors as it probably wasn't possible to shoot the film in Pakistan. With better sets and a wider variety of locations, the film would have been a masterpiece.Tere Bin Laden is definitely a must-watch.
The actors are having a ball, that's evident. The scriptwriter ( Abhishek Sharma) is just loving it: making digs on America's war against terror. And the viewers are in for some breezy fun. Savour the satire.
On the whole, TERE BIN LADEN is a fun-ride that makes you smile constantly and even laugh outrageously in those two hours. A thorough entertainer, this film has all it takes to not only make its viewers laugh in the aisles, but also its investors laugh all the way to the bank.
TERE BIN LADEN is 'laden' with many humourous moments. It is by far the funniest film in recent times. A must watch.
...the film is not made with much flair; it is very simple in its execution. There are no fancy camera tricks or overly glamorized sequences. What you see is what you get with Tere Bin Laden but believe me, it is enough to keep you glued to your seat. Watch it for the fun it pokes at a number of serious issues that we normally feel are taboo. Tere Bin Laden is a film that is fearless enough to take on those issues, add the fun spin and make you go ha-ha-hee-hee!
This is the only 'light' release of the week. Must see it for the effort. If not for anything else, to promote small films and encourage fresh ideas.
While "Tere Bin Laden" is many notches above the run-of-the-mill satire, as a spectral swipe at Osama-phobia, Bush-bashing and global terrorism, this one doesn't quite make the cut.
Debut writer-director Abhishek Sharma gives the audience a fresh, wicked comedy, that’s unapologetically defiant. Now either you can frown at the political incorrectness of it all, or laugh along with the audacious humour.
