Mumbai : 'Tevar' the film directed by Amit Sharma and written by Gunasekhar. who has also written the story for Hindi version. The Film staring Arjun Kapoor, Sonakshi Sinha and Manoj Bajpayee in lead roles. It is a remake of 2003 Telugu Blockbuster Okkadu starring Mahesh Babu,

In this Amit Sharma film, Pintoo is a kabbadi champ. He is macho, fit and can swing goons like a ball. In short, he is our desi 'masala' version of Superman (what better than that?). The moment he is introduced on screen, you know your 'paisa' will be vasool. In fact, even the sidekicks in the film, have been utilized well, and not just as props.

Pintoo is a young Kabbadi player who goes to factionism hit Mathura to take part in a life changing match, which decides his sports future. There, in a twist of fate, he saves Radhika from Gajendar Singh, a dangerous faction leader, who is in love with Radhika and wants to marry her against her wishes. Pintoo tries to comfort her because Gajendar Singh killed both brothers of Radhika. 

Pintoo brings Radhika to his house in Agra and decides to send her abroad to save her from Gajendar Singh. This is complicated by the fact that Radhika falls in love with Pintoo and that Pintoo dad is the top Cop in charge of finding Radhika, as per the order of corrupt home minister of the state. 

The home minister is into helping Gajendar Singh. Pintoo conceals Radhika in Charminar, this forms an integral part of the story. Whether Pintoo is able to achieve his Kabbadi target and whether, Radhika & Pintoo unite is the crux of the story.

Agra Boy Ghanshyam or Pintoo (Arjun Kapoor) is the son of a cop (Raj Babbar). He is a kabaddi enthusiast and also the chivalrous kind who goes around merrily bashing up people who dare to outrage the modesty of women in his locality. Radhika is a girl from Mathura who's being wooed rather violently by the local punk (Manoj Bajpayee), who otherwise passed his time killing people who came in the way of his politician brother.

Pintoo saves Radhika and they are now on the run. Sharma's eye for detailing is one of the few plus points of the film. He brings Mathura, Agra and the surrounding areas alive on screen along with the area specific quirks and chaos in the daily lives of the residents.

Some scenes are delightful, especially the ones which involve Pintoo's family. But unfortunately, these are just by the way in the whole scheme of this brutally violent film. The violence is in excess and each scene, action or otherwise, is stretched beyond a point of patience. Arjun Kapoor has a heavy burden on his shoulders as he plays the macho hero, capable of almost everything, and is part of almost every scene.

Still a greenhorn, the actor falters at some crucial scenes, but his sincerity and affable personality kind of makes up for it. Bajpayee, the effortlessly brilliant actor that he is, plays the baddie perfectly but unfortunately his character ends up being nothing more than a caricature in a pair of jockeys by the time we reach the climax.

Sonakshi is competent but she obviously enjoys being trapped in a fragile, bharatiya nari image. So no hope there. Shruti Haasan's item number is uhm…just that. The Soundtrack Was composed by duo Sajid-Wajid. International singer Imran Khan made his Bollywood debut with this film. The lyrics were written by Kausar Munir, Danish Sabri, Sajid and Imran Khan.
