Bollywood review: Tees Maar Khan

This film was supposedly created around the hit song “Sheila ki Jawaani”, which is certainly one of the catchiest Hindi pop songs ever (surprised no one has done an English version – Rhianna perhaps..). It certainly looks like it for parts of the movie. It gets off to a great start with some funny stuff and amusing pop culture references (probably lots we didn’t get too), then descends into ridiculous farce but picks up at the end for a very funny conclusion. Akshay Kumar is enjoyable as usual, but Akshaye Khanna is my pick as funniest actor. Katrina Kaif looks great as usual but misses out on all the good lines. Lots of great songs, but of course the highlight is the totally irrelevant to the plot “Sheila”! Can anyone tell me what Tees Maar means – my guess is the words for the letter T M? 70/100
