Monica Dogra sleepwalks, Shekhar Kapur looks jaded
Watch it for edge of the seat climax
'Teraa Surroor' is next outing of Himesh Reshammiya as an actor and this is his next release after his last successful outing 'The Expose'. Film is touted as sequel of his hit debut film 'Aap Ka Surror'.
Saru, full name Saraswati, is an obedient daddy’s girl. Inder is a broody, massively-tattooed loner. And ‘Sanam Teri Kasam’ , not to be confused with the ’82 film of the same name, is a manual of how Not to make a contemporary romantic film.
Picture this: a heavy-handed father who thunders, flinging out instructions on how wife and daughters ought to behave. Falling in love with an unsuitable boy, ‘aiyyo rama’. Acting on your own will, ‘parmeshwara’. Doing what your heart tells you to, ‘aaj se thum mere liye marr gayi’.
Which leaves Saru (Mawra Hocane) to smile, simper, weep. Hesitate. Propitiate. And to look at her stony-faced father (Chowdhary, trying very hard to be a credible South Indian patriarch and failing) who’d rather conduct a wake than understand his daughter’s desires, and wait for his ‘permission’ before she can take a step forward.

Inder (Harshwardhan Rane, armed with impressive bod, limited expression), who has daddy issues of his own, scowls and growls. The deep hurt caused by his dad is revealed much too late, and much too cursorily. The rest is filled by these two unlikely characters—Inder and Saru—developing feelings, over a brain tumour, impending tragedy, and more tears.
Film has complex yet interesting plot. Film tells story of Raghu (Himesh Reshammiya) who is in Dublin to get his love Tara (Farah Karimi) free from lock up who is been charged for drug smuggling. But then Raghu as some other motive too which is to find one mysterious man Annirudh Brahmin. Raghu takes guidance from notorious jail breaker Bird (Naseeruddin Shah) and Indian Embassy Head In Ireland (Shekhar Kapur). Then there are impressive actors like Kabir Bedi (Cop Khan) and lawyer (Monica Dogra). How Raghu manages to get his love and revenge back forms the climax.
Film has engaging drama and has very realistic intense yet entertaining approach. Film has decent writing and screenplay is also good. Film never drags as it has apt running time of under two hours.
Performance wise, Himesh Reshaamiya has delivered a whistle-worthy dialogues and good performance throughout the film. Be it his action sequence or delivering power-packed dialogues, he has left no stones unturned to woo the crowd in the theater. Farah Karimi struggles except looking pretty, Shekhar Kapur looks tired and Monica Dogra sleepwalks. But Naseeruddin Shah is super and Kabir Bedi is good.
Film has very massy dialogues and decent screenplay. Film has crisp editing by Aashish. Background music is average. Cinematography is very good, production design is perfect and costumes are apt. Film is superbly shot by Manish Bhatt.
Director Shwaan Arrahana delivers a edge of the seat thriller. He tries his best to make an entertaining film.
Film will release today and it will get decent reviews and it will be marred by exam period and cricket. Film has almost solo release status so good reviews can take it to new heights.
Go for this one for an engaging piece of cinema!
