Tevar Hindi Movie Review

Critic Reviews- (Ratings out of 10)

  •  Times Of India | Review By -Meena Iyer Rating-7
Hell hath no fury like a politician scorned. This stands true for the better part of India where every minister is a government unto himself. So you have Mathura's minister-cum-goonda Gajender Singh (Manoj Bajpayee) wooing collegian Radhika (Sonakshi Sinha). When she rejects

  •  CNN IBN | Review By -Rajeev Masand Rating-4
'Tevar', starring Arjun Kapoor and Sonakshi Sinha, is an exhausting film. The kind that leaves you feeling like you've just run the marathon... but with none of the satisfaction, or the sense of achievement that comes with reaching the finish line. Set in and around the lawless stretches

  •  Indian Express | Review By -Shubhra Gupta Rating-3
Right from its opening frames, ‘Tevar’ makes you a couple of promises : that it will be violent, vicious and crude; and that it will do nothing new. On both counts, that is exactly what it delivers. Same old biff bang thud, covered by blood, bones and mud. It is set in Agra, and

  •  Rediff | Review By -Raja Sen Rating-2
Yawn. Tevar -- yet another of those mindless South remakes we have been indulging in so faithfully ever since Aamir Khan showed us the way in Ghajini -- is a tiring slog, devoid of personality, riding unfairly on the shoulders of a young lad. Arjun Kapoor, owner of said shoulders, isn't bad at all.

  •  India Today | Review By -Rohit Khilnani Rating-2
Going by the lyrics of one of the songs in Tevar one understands that Pintu (Arjun Kapoor) is Salman ka fan and in the rest of the film he tries to do what Salman does best, herogiri. Pintu says he is a combination of Terminator, Rambo and Salman Khan and the Kapoor khandaan

  •  NDTV | Review By -Saibal Chatterjee Rating-4
A pretty college-going girl catches the fancy of a Mathura politician's vicious brother. The latter wants to marry the girl, and like all self-respecting Bollywood baddies, will not take no for an answer. An Agra boy, no mean street-fighter himself, unwittingly gets in the way of the goon's

  •  Mid Day | Review By -Shubha Shetty Saha Rating-5
'Tevar' starts with a handicap. This remake of a 2003 Telugu film, 'Okkudu', has a jaded, well-worn story that's been repeated several times over. Now the challenge for the first-time director Amit Ravindernath Sharma and the writers was to redesign it to suit the contemporary times.

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By-Anupama Chopra Rating-4
The hardest thing about Tevar is reconciling the director with the film. Amit Ravindernath Sharma is an award-winning advertising whiz kid. Among his many triumphs is a commercial for Google about two childhood friends who lose each other during Partition and are reunited by their

  •  The W14 | Review By -Mayank Shekhar Rating-3
A person at the theatre this morning came up to me in the interval specifically to say that Okkuru (2003), this picture’s original version in Telugu, was a whole lot better than what I had been watching thus far. This didn’t surprise me one bit. Often people from the South seem quite

  •  Koimoi | Review By -Surabhi Redkar Rating-5
Tevar is an out-an-out typical masala film. With a clich├ęd storyline of a mulit-talented, good-at-heart hero and an extremely notorious and slimy git as the villain, the story is quite predictable. Sadly, I found an uncanny resemblance in the storylines of Chennai Express and Tevar especially

  •  Bollywood Hungama | Review By -Hungama Network Rating-8
And...finally, the New Year is here...with lots of promises galore for a 'filmi' year ahead. Besides the small and medium budgeted films, 2015 will also see lots of big budget releases. Starting off this year is Amit Ravindernath Sharma's TEVAR, which is an official remake of the 2003

  •  Gulf News | Review By -Manjusha Radhakrishnan Rating-4
Last week, when the Tevar crew flew into Dubai to promote their film, they implored the critics to review their latest project keeping the masses who enjoy Bollywood masala films in mind. I did. But I have also come to the conclusion those Bollywood film lovers, with their voracious

  • | Review By -Lokesh Dharmani Rating-4
Recently, when I met Arjun Kapoor during the promotions of Tevar, I asked him what the most meaningful dialogue in the film is. He said, and I quote, “Kabaddi, kabaddi, kabaddi, kiski todu gardan, kiski todu haddi?” It was then that I understood the real meaning of facepalm.

  •  Moviez Adda | Review By -Divya Solgama Rating-5
Hindi cinema is popularly known for its mass entertaining films with good blending of songs, dance, romance, action and drama. If made perfecty manner these films are loved by both masses and the classes. Filmmakers like Raj Kapoor, Manmohan Desai, Yash Chopra and many

  •  India Today | Review By -Saurabh Dwivedi Rating-6
The first big-budget movie of 2015, Tevar is finally here. The story revolves around a college going girl(Sonakshi Sinha) who catches the fancy of a baddy (Manoj Vajpayee). To add more interest, the corrupt baddie is a brother of a politican. The pretty girl has little choice

  •  Rediff | Review By -Sukanya Verma Rating-3
There was a time when Bollywood would blatantly copy from other films, scene by scene. Now they buy remake rights and improvise. What happens in this process is that a straightforward story about a kabaddi playing lad rescuing a small town girl from a politically-affiliated goon

  •  Book My Show | Review By -Vidula Menge Rating-6
A small-town Kabaddi player sets off on a mission to save a girl from the clutches of a goon, who falls head over heels in love with her. Why? No, he’s not in love. But because he’s ‘Superman, Salman ka fan’. Oh, but he does fall in love! Amit Sharma’s debut directorial venture is a remake

  •  India Today | Review By -Suhani Singh Rating-3
Tevar has deja vu written all over it. A remake of Kannada film Okkadu, it has a young hero trying to save a heroine from a bad guy, who in intend on marrying her against her wishes. This could be R...Rajkumar or for that matter most of Sonakshi Sinha's filmography.

  •  Mumbai Mirror | Review By -Rahul Desai Rating-4
Yet another remake of yet another Telugu hit (Okkadu), Tevar could well be called Tashan, or Wanted, or Heropanti, or Ishaqzaade, or Aap Mujhe Achche Lagne Lage, or any other generic title that denotes purposeless Heartland heroism. When Mathura's quiet heroine

  •  Zee News | Review By -Ritika Handoo Rating-6
We have seen a lot of northern India and heard the dialect which strikes a hit note with the audiences, recently. Still, when you open your eyes to the world of Arjun Kapoor aka Pintoo in 'Tevar', there is something you feel for Agra and Mathura. 'Tevar' is a remake of 2003 Telugu

  •  Hindustan Times | Review By -Rohit Vats Rating-3
Take 100 grams of Arnold Schwarzenegger and mix it with 75 grams of Sylvester Stallone. Sprinkle Salman Khan as per your taste and you'll find yourself staring at Ghanshyam aka Pintu (Arjun Kapoor). This is what the protagonist of Tevar thinks of himself.

  •  Sify | Review By -Sonia Chopra Rating-3
The charm of a small-town setting, brutal politicians, instant love, heroic hero, distressed heroine, item songs, regressive storyline, dumb developments, and an all is well ending. Nowwww, where have we seen this before. Here, however we have Pintu instead of an R Rajkumar

  •  Glamsham | Review By -Martin D'Souza Rating-2
Tevar is your average Bollywood masala movie which lacks imagination. The film runs on a thin plot on an accidental rivalry between Mathura ka goonda and Agra ka launda. Mathura ka goonda is Gajendra Singh (Manoj Bajpayee) whose brother is apparently the Home Minister.

  •  Now Running | Review By -Piyush Chopra Rating-5
Every year, we get a dozen or so brainless action films that are as entertaining as getting run over by a car. In these films, everything goes in the name of commercial entertainment. But you're not upset about that, because you know that regardless of these unnecessary elements

  •  Daily Bhaskar | Rating-5
Story wise there is very little that you might not have watched before in previous action-packed Bollywood films. There is a local damsel in distress, and a local hero belonging to Agra, and also there is an utterly local bahubali. And all three keep engaging in chase sequences every

  •  Deccan Chronicle | Review By -Kaushani Banerjee Rating-5
You already know it is going to be a larger-than-life experience when Arjun Kapoor sings ‘Main toh Superman, Salman ka fan’. Walk into the theater expecting highly choreographed action sequences, chases and melodrama in debutant director Amit Sharma's ‘Tevar’.

  •  Deccan Herald | Review By -Arkadev Goshal Rating-4
This remake of the more-than-a-decade-old Mahesh Babu-starrer Okkadu manages to elicit some laughs and hoots, but the near-prehistoric — if not actually so — story of the good guy (Arjun Kapoor) helping the damsel (Sonakshi Sinha) escape the bad guy

  •  Filmi Beat | Review By -Nandhini Rating-5
After three weeks of hangover of PK, Tevar is here to give us all some respite. The first big film release of the year 2015, Tevar is a remake of director Gunasekhar's Telugu film Okkadu which was also made in Tamil as Gilli. In both the languages it was a super duper hit.
