The first thing that will come to mind while watching Tees Maar Khan is that it is so not a Farah Khan film. Farah, one of the few successful female directors, had made a name in the male dominated Bollywood with her unique brand of humor. Both her previous blockbusters, Main Hoon Na and Om Shanti Om saw Farah churn out a brilliant mix of old school Bollywood with a dash of masala.
Farah Khan misses her much-deserved hat-trick with the box office dude, Tees Maar Khan. Despite having a grand opening, the weak script could not manage to pull enough audiences to the theatres later. The reason is just too obvious. With the change of the writer, the fate of the film took a major turn. We are all left to wonder why Farah decided to dig her own grave by making her husband, Shirish Kunder, the writer of this film. At first Farah just copied the idea of After the Fox by Vittorio De Sica. Later she bought the rights of the film just to play safe.
What Shirish has done with the script of the film, could have been done by a Priyadarshan, an Anees Bazmee or even Farahâ€™s brother Sajid. The common factor would only be Akshay Kumar. But they would not dare to make the mistake Shirish did â€
