Production: Ratan Jain for United 7 Entertainment Ltd
Cast: Ajay Devgn, Anil Kapoor, Kangana Ranaut, Zyed Khan, Sameera Reddy, Boman Irani, Mohanlal, Paresh Rawal
Writers: Robin Bhatt, Aditya Dhar
Release Date: April 27, 2012
Star Value: With Ajay Devgn and Anil Kapoor playing pivotal roles, you can say Tezz is quite high on star value. Apart from these actors, there are also experienced veterans like Boman Irani, Paresh Rawal and Mohanlal, along with known names like Kangana Ranaut and Sameera Reddy.
Hype: Despite such big names and a well-known and successful director, Tezz has failed to create any hype or buzz. According to me, this could be because the promos of the movie are quite similar to the various action movies that have released in the recent past. The makers have also failed to publicize their movie.
Music: Lack of an interesting or a hit track is another reason for the film failing to create hype. The title song, the romantic number ‘Tere Bina’ and even Mallika Sherawat’s item song ‘Laila’ haven’t become popular.
Prediction: Tezz will at the most get an average opening at the box-office. This is quite surprising considering the star cast and the image of the director. It’s made at a budget of Rs 40 crore. It will be very tough for it to surpass that amount and make profit. Its only chance lies if it turns out to be a super-impressive product. If it doesn’t, it will have the same fate as Ajay-Priyadarshan’s first film together Aakrosh (2010), which was also an action flick.
