Veer - the comeback film of Salman Khan?

Veer, originally uploaded by jaaneman.

The Bollywood film Veer, slated for release this month, directed by Anil Sharma of ‘Gadar: Ek Prem Katha’ fame, stars Salman Khan, Mithun Chakraborty, Sohail Khan, Jackie Shroff, Zarine Khan, Lisa Lazarus, Neena Gupta and others. The screen play, written by Salman Khan, is an epic film set in 1820s. It is the love story of the warrior Veer of the Pindari clan of rulers who fight against the British forces. The trailer of Veer was released in November 2009 at the screening of Priyadarshan's De Dana Dan. The trailer was released worldwide and the first song promo ‘Salaam Aaya’ was released in December 2009. The music was composed by Sajid-Wajid and the lyrics written by Gulzar.

The year 2009 was not so good for Bollywood from the point of view of box office hits, excepting some films like the Aamir Khan starrer ‘3 Idiots’ that has been declared a super success. Some of the major Bollywood productions like KITES, Shah Rukh Khan’s upcoming flick ‘My Name Is Khan’ are awaiting release this year. But most critics feel that ‘3 Idiots’ that surpassed the success of ‘Ghajini’ only because of Aamir’s ‘super marketing strategies’, and Salman Khan is also following similar tactics to market Veer by organizing contests to select the ‘brave people from the real life’ from all over the country, and honouring them at a special function in Mumbai. Salman, who did not have any big hits recently and had to be contented with average releases, is surely looking for a come back to the BIG HITS trail with Veer.
