O Teri tries hard to be smart and clever and funny. And it parts it is. But for the larger part it is left being a wannabe Jaane Bhi Do Yaaron. The dead body will always be D'Mello and Satish Shah and nothing can change that. Of course, there is a new generation of aam aadmi moviegoers who may not have seen that movie and they may find it funnier than a lot of us.
Most of the problem of the movie falling short of the expectations it sets of itself is the two lead actors - Pulkit Samrat and newcomer Bilal Amrohi. They have a lot to do and unfortunately they don't do it so well. They are unable to carry off the comedy and in the dramatic scenes they fail to impress. The jokes are kind of funny and punny but you still don't find yourself rolling with laughter in the supposed to be funny scenes.
The rest of the star cast is pretty decent. Anupam Kher, Mandira Bedi (and her noodle strap blouses) are good. But Vijay Raaz is the most entertaining of the lot as the Opposition man with a boyfriend. Even his henchman is funnier than our two heroes. Sarah Jane Dias doesn't have much to do .
The songs are pretty boring and one too many,except the one about FB and Twitter which is amusing. I think it's really time that people stopped inserting songs so that the actors can show off their dancing skills and six packs and pecs.We are watching a movie and not a show reel.
The movie is well paced which is a good thing and the story is quite interesting. But it could have been so much more. Should you see it? Not unless you reach the booking counter after a long wait and find nothing else is available. Then you can see it and not feel very upset that it was a total waste of time. Kind of makes sense?
