The much awaited bollywood movie Veer in the year 2010 started on not so promising note as the critics have given thumbs down in every department of the movie.
We have compiled the reviews from major movie sites, details as per below:
At the outset, Veer drives home a few hard facts. (a) No amount of gloss can substitute for an engaging story, (b) not all directors are capable of pulling off a period film, and (c) no star – even the biggest – can infuse life in a comatose script.
Everyone’s awaiting Veer with bated breath. The film industry will get another breather if Veer goes the 3 Idiots way at the box-office. The public will have one more fascinating genre to look forward to, if Veer appeals to them. But your hopes go crashing as reel after reel of Veer unfurls. (read more)
The average story he pens doesn’t do justice to the immense intensity he adds to his performance. So Salman is marred and let down by his own self. Veer opens in 1862 though it comes close to the masala magnum opus flicks of the 80s. (read more)
What you’re looking for is an old-fashioned Hindi film brimming with tough men, beautiful women, chest-thumping dialogue and no-holds-barred melodrama. Veer, a Manmohan Desai-meets-Gladiator epic, provides this but doesn’t weave it together with enough imagination or panache. (read more)
VEER drives home a few hard facts…
* No amount of gloss can substitute for an engaging story.
* Not all directors are capable of pulling off a period film.

On the whole, Veer proves the age-old adage true: All that glitters is not gold. The film may open very well at single screens thanks to Salman’s popularity and the hype surrounding the film and may also enjoy a healthy extended weekend, but given its exorbitant costs and poor merits, Veer will face an uphill task to recover costs. This one’s a monumental disappointment!
