Product Description

Tere Bin Laden is a tongue in cheek comedy about an ambitious young news reporter from Pakistan who is desperate to migrate to the US in pursuit of the American dream. His repeated attempts to immigrate are shot down as his visa is always rejected.

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.

Review

Bollywood director, Abhishek Sharma, had done the impossible: a Bollywood musical satire about Osama Bin Laden. Yes, you've read that correctly! How could anyone do such a sacrilgious thing? It would be a sacrilege not to. Given the current geo-politics, all the daily terrorist reports can send one into hiding from life itself. Not for director Sharma. He and his crew thumbed their noses and stuck up their mid digits with the flick, Tere Bin Laden (Without You, Bin Laden).

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

A very funny but dark farce on a young Pakistani who is determined to come to the USA and a bin Laden look-alike who is a poultry farmer. Bit dated now that the real Bin Laden has been dispatched.

Goofy comedy about some folks struggling for a break who think they've found it when they fake a video of Osama bin Laden. Light comedy with a few soft political jabs.
