Salman’s much awaited Veer was released this week. Two and a half hour long film fails to impress the audience, though this has all masala, dialogues to draw whistles from certain section and melodious numbers.

Costume drama Veer is a blend of Manmohan Desai films and and Hollywood warrior flicks. This mega-scale love story written by Salman himself and directed by Anil Sharma as Warrior hero fails to impress with the content quality.
The film is set in pre-independence era and revolves around a warrior tribe Pindharis. Jacie Shroff is villian as the king of Madhavgarh who cheats the Pindhari tribe to get favour of Britishers. Head of tribe Prithvi Singh is played by Mithun Chakraborty. He grooms his two sons – Veer and Punya (Sohail Khan) to take the revenge.
