What this oversimplistic film lacks, is sharp writing. It is entertaining in parts but once the curse of the second hour strikes, the wicked streak takes a backseat. Tere Bin Laden : Dead or Alive, misses the spunk of its prequel.
The script is bogged down by too many clichés like theatrical news anchors and stale ideas on America bashing. A lot of jokes just don’t work; punches fall flat, laboured slapstick – overacted demonstration of overacting, birds bursting into smithereens, we still doing that?
TERE BIN LADEN DEAD OR ALIVE doesn't live up to the first part. It offers you patchy entertainment. At the ticket window it will not enjoy an overwhelming word of mouth. If you don't have anything else to do, you can check it out else wait for the satellite premiere. TERE BIN LADEN DEAD OR ALIVE boasted of a lot of promise, the movie is a half baked entertainer that makes you chuckle at quite a few occasions but it doesn't deliver a full throated laughter.
A quick verdict: Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive is more dead-on-arrival than alive. If not an outright washout, this sloppy send-up is far too limp to run the distance. Tere Bin Laden: Dead or Alive is best avoided unless a bunch of characters running around in circles is one's idea of entertainment.
