Movie Review: O Teri (2014)

Box Office: Disaster

O Teri revolves around two goofy TV reporters AIDS (Bilal Amrohi) and PP (Pulkit Samrat) and their misadventures whilst sourcing news in a bid to safeguard their information. They don’t mind stooping to all lows of dumbness to acquire sensational stories and it is that dire need that lands them with a dead body, a big scam and lots of danger. Whether they survive the danger and expose the corrupt officials or not follows through the rest of the plot.

In what appears like a story that may have appeared enticing only on paper, O Teri clearly sticks to its title and falls flat. Hindi cinema has seen some brilliant satire in the past including the kinds made by Shyam Benegal and O Teri only appears a half-baked attempt at even reaching a certain percentage of that. The movie that promises to offer gags and situational comedy only gets reduced to a yawn inducing trauma.
