But when things couldn't look worse he comes across an Osama Bin Laden look alike. Ali then hatches a scheme to produce a fake Osama video and sell it to news channels as a breakthrough scoop! Unfortunately there are serious ramifications as the White House gets involved and dispatches a overzealous secret agent on Ali's trail.
Bollywood director, Abhishek Sharma, wrote the screenplay for Tere Bin Laden, as a personal response for a post 9/11 society. The film has a political signifigance of being a Bollywood film featuring a Pakistani actor in a leading role. Sadly, the film is officially banned in Pakistan as well.
This film was shown at the opening night of the 2010 Friars Club Comedy Film Festival. The folks at The Friars Club couldn't have picked a better choice for a film to represent their unique gift of comedy to the world. With a combination of social farce, musical numbers and Bollywood grandeur, director Sharma may very well have the next best political satire since Marx Brother's Duck Soup in his hands. --platform47.com
It is not just the uproarious moments that make it shine. TERE BIN LADEN also has a good and innovative story weaved around Osama Bin Laden. Abhishek Sharma's direction is flawless.
The film scores high in the performance department. The casting is very apt.
TERE BIN LADEN is 'laden' with many humourous moments. It is by far the funniest film in recent times. A must watch. --platform47.com
TERE BIN LADEN is a wicked comedy with an out-of-the-box concept that offers laughter unlimited. In fact, I don't think I've flexed my facial muscles in any other film in the recent past as much as I did while watching this satirical comedy. What gives TERE BIN LADEN an edge over other comedies is that it's not the slapstick humour that keeps you entertained. This one has a story to tell as well, which also delves deeply into the minds of today's youth.
Showcasing comical flair like Riteish Deshmukh and a façade like Shahid Kapoor, Pakistani actor Ali Zafar effortlessly glides through his role. Pradhuman Singh is hilarious while pulling off an Osama Bin Laden. Barry John pretty much justifies the
firang character he plays. Blessed with impeccable comic timing, Piyush Mishra is uproarious. The ensemble character cast of Sugandha Garg, Nikhil Ratnaparkhi, Rahul Singh and Chirag Vohra play their parts well.
Tere Bin Laden is laden with some genuine laugh-out-loud moments.
Grab a popcorn, sip your cola and get ready to laugh non-stop for the next two hours. You would love Osama Bin Laden, for a change! Entertaining, enjoyable and surely worth a keep! --platform47.com
