Farah Khan’s ventures have always managed to garner tremendous interest among the audience and her latest offering is no different. Tees Maar Khan is undoubtedly one of the highly anticipated movies of this year. And apparently, one of the most auspicious! Comedy King Akshay Kumar, pretty Katrina Kaif, versatile Akshaye Khanna and a hoard of special appearances by ‘good friends’ (read Salman Khan, Anil Kapoor, Vishal Dadlani…), music by the Vishal-Shekhar duo, lyrics by Javed Akhtar; this Shirish Kunder-Farah product definitely seems to be having all the right ingredients. And it seems God’s blessings too. Tees Maar Khan (or ‘Smartass’ as Farah explains the title) commenced its shoot on Holi and ended during Eid and Ganesh Chaturti. Not only this, the last song of the movie featuring the Akshay-Katrina pair will be shot during Navratri, the first promo will be aired during Diwali and the movie itself will release during Christmas! (24th December to be precise).
Obviously, the team hopes that the ‘divine grace’ stays with the movie forever. And maybe that’s why Farah decided to release the first look of the movie during this time. Which, by the way, we must say has definitely piped up our interest. And if the synopsis released is anything to go by, the Bollywood industry may already have a winner on its hands.
Only once in a blue moon is such a great criminal born who is fearless as well as shameless! Now is the blue moon and the great criminal is Tees Maar Khan (Akshay Kumar). He steals, cons and cheats all with such alarming audacity that even shame shies away from him! He and his gang comprising of Dollar, Soda and Burger have managed to keep the police, world over, on their toes. Then one fine day international antique smugglers, the Johri Brothers, assign Tees Maar Khan the BIGGEST CON JOB OF HIS LIFE! He must rob antiques worth 500 crore rupees from a heavily guarded MOVING TRAIN! Will Khan and his merry gang, with some unwitting support from his wannabe-actress girlfriend, Anya (Katrina Kaif), and a greedy Bollywood superstar Akshaye Khanna) be able to pull off the greatest heist in history?
And more importantly, will he be able to con the audience into watching the movie? Let’s wait for the first promo to decide that!
While we wait here check out the poster for the film!
