The movie is said be inspired by 1994 Hollywood movie Speed.
Aakaash (Ajay Devgan) with his partners Adil Khan (Zayed Khan) and Megha (Sameera Reddy), Plants a bomb in a bullet train going from London to Glasgow. These three actors are illegal immigrants in Britain and they turn against the authorities who try to deport them back to India. After planting the boom they ask for a huge ransom which the government is willing to pay. They threat that if the speed of train goes below 60 the bomb will go off, killing all the people in the train. Arjun Khanna (Anil Kapoor) who is Counter Terrorism Command and just got retired but is being asked to take this last case. Boman Irani is seen in the role of head of London railway network. His daughter is also on this train. The movie goes about how these three Indians try to get back what has been taken away from them in an unjust way and how British officials try to stop them.
Director Priyadarshan has tried to do something different from his usual work but unfortunately he couldn’t make this movie outstanding. There are many flaws in the movie. Dialogues seems weak at some places and are not well delivered.
Music of the movie has been given by Sajid Wjid. Romantic Number Tere Bina by Rahet Fateh Ali Khan truly lifts the mood of the audience. The item number “Laila” by Mallika Sherawat that has been retained in the movie, is a failure for two reasons; Firstly it looks like that they have tried to put the song unnecessarily. Secondly, its moves are not catchy.
Role of Female actors are not much prominent in the movie. Performance of Anil Kapoor is solid and his appearance fits in to the role very well. Ajay’s performance is also well matched with the character. Zayed Khan along with two other female actresses doesn’t have much presence but they have done an average job. Boman Irani has done justice to his character by being real.
Tezz is a good watch for action thriller fans. This type of script has been used before in Hollywood, in tezz Priyadarshan has tried to bring Bollywood element in it but unfortunately is doesn’t succeed because of the flaws and some weakness of the movie.
