Movie Review: Tezz (2012)

Users Rating: [ratings] ★★★☆☆
Box Office: Disaster

Riveting action movies are a rarity in Bollywood. Action movies that stand out come along once every few years. TEZZ, helmed by Priyadarshan, is one of them.

The story of TEZZ is uncomplicated… A team of Asians place a bomb on a high-speed train. The authorities receive an anonymous threat that a triggered bomb has been planted on a bullet train operating between London and Glasgow. If the train decelerates or loses speed below a certain tempo, it will be destroyed along with its many passengers, unless a ransom is paid. The police want to stop the bombs from exploding, while the railway authorities want to save the lives of the passengers and they soon find themselves in a disagreement under the frantic pace set by these dramatic circumstances.

TEZZ is a good looking thriller filmed with expertise. Loaded with an ingenious premise, thrilling moments and action, Priyadarshan has curved it into a tremendously well-executed motion picture. The film’s sole objective is to keep moving at a feverish pace, keeping the spectator completely immersed and entertained with the on-screen occurrences. Sure, there are some unwarranted moments [more on that later!], but the pacing is so breakneck and the cinematography so superior that it’s easy to overlook the few unreasonable moments.

Shot across England with action sequences like none other, one scarcely pauses to take a breath. If you’ve ever travelled on the lightning fast bullet train, you know how terrifying the thought of an accident is. If you enjoy panic movies with ultimate action and edgy thriller suspense, then TEZZ should do the trick for you.
