Veer and equally convincing as his cherished son who is something of a superlative warrior and honourable soldier, except that they look more like brothers as middle aged men rather than as father and son, but one can accept that as the plot evolves and veer is smuggled to Victorian London to learn the ruses of the British diplomacy with his younger brother-mini VEER–Sohail Khan-both in talent and stature ,and they start to sermonise and create havoc in the Victorian circles, which involves harassing English ladies eating "cone "ice creams and romancing the princess of Madavgarh, played by the quite pretty newcomer Zarine Khan, although she can not act or dance for her life but her face and figure are appealing.
Soon their secret is out and the London trip ends in a disaster, as the Pindaris are discovered for what they are by the Madavs, but meanwhile veer has sung and danced to two good songs in Somerset House with the founts playing that were just installed

Lyrics : Gulzar
do not expect Anil Sharma to have even a fraction of the genius that was imbued upon Mehboob Khan or Ramesh Sippy, talents who equalled their Hollywood
The valour and veracity of cinema does not lie in the vast scale of it's production design but rather in a simple quotient called the vision of the maker ,as veer rolls off you experience visions of grandeur which remind you of the best of Bollywood like, Sholay and Aan, and you start dreading the oncoming debacle as you dubiously
and global counterparts and even superseded them ,and that is exactly the problem that haunts Veer with its misdirection.
The clichéd plot from 1875 involves the noble struggle of a Pindari tribe for freedom from the clutches of the evil colonial British Empire, who indulge in divide and rule and here we see the conflict between two Rajputana tribes, Pindaris with their home-grown traditional patriotic values and Madavgarh as the treacherous traitors who have allied with the British Empire.
The majestic Mithun enters as the Pindari chief and he looks and acts every inch the warrior and stalwart he plays, while Salman khan is
two years ago, and the Hermitage rooms are the setting for another song, which only were initiated a decade ago.
