Story:

A long drawn tale, the story is set on the backdrop of the British Raj and while all kings and small rulers are snared by the British and their kingdoms are taken, there is one clan who defy them. They are the tribal clan of Pindaris who believe in death before dishonour and among them is the fierce and brave warrior Veer (Salman). He stands against the British Empire and not only that, he has obstacles in the form of the Raja of Madhavgarh (Jackie), his own people, his love for princess Yashodhara (zarine) who is the daughter of his enemy. Whether Veer is successful in his battle or not forms the rest of the story.
 
Presentation:
The director has come up with a flimsy storyline and though the presentation was good the narrative was weak. The script was spineless, the screenplay was horrendous, the dialogues were alright. The saving grace comes in the form of background score which is apt, two songs which are neat, amazing cinematography and excellent action sequences. Editing was required at many places, costumes were grand and art department was majestic. Salman Khan did his best to infuse life into the film but then his brand value alone could not suffice, Zarine Khan was straight faced but she is beautiful, Jackie Shroff was good, Mithun was okay, Sohail Khan was below average, Neena Gupta was regular, Puru Rajkumar doesn't get much chance, the other foreign actors were plastic. 
 
Conclusion:
The makers have come up with a mix of many Hollywood movies which are warrior based and mixed it with the desi elements to give the nativity feel. While the opening takes off brilliantly, the film starts collapsing as time passes. By interval, it is gone. The second half adds to the woes of the viewers with dragged sentiments and overdose of climax. Overall, the film scores on the technical aspects and production values but it fails miserably due to lack of a systematic story and poor writing. Given the budget, it is hard for the film to survive at the box office.
 
Bharatstudent Verdict: Weak and dragging, only efforts can be appreciated.
