Teraa Surroor’s music is its biggest attraction, provided you’re a Himesh fan like me. The first half keeps featuring one song after another and you feel blessed. But then comes the interval, following which the movie turns into an illogical chase that ends nowhere. Even the movie’s glossy cinematography and sleek editing couldn’t be of much help.
TERAA SURROOR is aimed at Himesh Reshammiya's fans who may want to go and patronize the movie. The pragmatic economics (cost recovery through the sale of music, satellite and other rights), no opposition and the multitude of Himesh Reshammiya's fans will ensure it will sail to safety at the Box Office.
If watching a 100-something minutes long music video starring a deadpan, poor man's Sunil Shetty strutting self-importantly in Salman's hand-me-down is your kind of entertainment, book your ticket RIGHT NOW.
Neither suspenseful in its execution of the escape, nor in the big reveal of the mastermind behind Raghu’s problems, the film seems to exist for no other purpose than to showcase Himesh and his limited talent. I’m going with one out of five for Teraa Surroor. The one star is for the gorgeous Dublin locations, and for the infectious music.
The focus stays firmly on Himesh Reshammiya, who remains blank-faced through it all, never cracking a single smile, not even when he is with his girl. All in tons of slo mo, alternating with dizzying camera angles. All drowned in loud background music. About the only thing I enjoyed, apart from a few flashes of pristine Dublin, was Shekhar Kapur’s grizzled walk-on appearance as an Indian diplomat with a troubled marriage.
Teraa Surroor dives deep into a sea of mothballed ideas. No wonders the exercise yields no pearls. Does Teraa Surroor have any redeeming feature at all? Well, the length is a bit of a relief. The film’s runtime is 15 minutes under two hours. So, it isn’t as patience-trying as it otherwise might have been.
What’s Good: How unintentionally funny the film is! What’s Bad: Watching Himesh Reshammiya try to act like an enticing hero wooing ladies and making the worst ‘O’ (Orgasm) face ever! Watch or Not?: No! Unless you have an insane group of friends with who you can share a laugh on this.
