Veera (Rani Mukerji) is a fire-cracker of a girl who lives in a small village but dreams in 70mm. She works in a local theatre group but dreams of playing cricket in the big league. Yes, believe it or not, she wants to play with Tendulkar and Dhoni for India. While Veera dreams on in India, Rohan (Shahid Kapoor) is an accomplished captain of a county cricket team in England. Rohan returns to India to captain his fathers cricket team which has been losing consecutively for the last 8 years. In a village where girls don't play cricket, Veera has to put on a turban and beard and become a man to fulfill her dreams. Her brilliance on the field earns her a place in Rohans team and Veera Kaur becomes Veer Pratap Singh. And then begins a roller-coaster journey of Veera, Rohan and Veer filled with colour, vibrant music, romance and comedy through Punjab and beyond. This tale of turbans, twists and tricks will make your heart go Hadippa.Written by

Sir, I not bodybuilder. I... world class batsman, sir.
World class, my foot. In my dictionary only three things are world class - Bradman's batting, the Beatles's music, and Mom's cooking - and you, my dear, are none of those three. Let's go!

Another Amateurish Yashraj Flick Made Watchable (To An Extent) by Ms. Mukherjee
Yashraj turns up with another sugar-coated melodrama but I watched it for only one reason. That is Rani Mukherjee. When I see her in films like this (and everything she's done in the last 7 years) I can't help but feel sorry for the actress who is incredibly talented and who wastes her gift in such pathetic movies. The basic concept is borrowed from the Amanda Bynes movie 'She's The Man' (which was another ridiculous film) and there was the extra addition of overdone patriotism, culture clash and gender equality and whatever that is done in a preachy, melodramatic and amateurish manner. A lot of the themes have been rushed while some weren't even necessary (like the Sherlyn Chopra track). The songs are downright forgettable even though I liked some of them mostly for Sunidhi Chauhan's energy. Mukherjee is excellent and for me she made the film watchable. She is very convincing as the girl-pretending-to-be-a-young-sardar and vivacious as the streetsmart village belle. The actress proves once again that she has a natural flair for comedy. Shahid Kapur is formulaic as is Anupam Kher. Rakhi Sawant is alright in what she's given. Sherlyn Chopra seems to have been promoted from B grade movies to, uh, more expensive films but her acting is horrendous and her dialogue delivery makes her sound like she's heavily stoned. I guess Amisha Patel wasn't available to play the bimbo this time. Overall, it's one of those films that you can watch with the family (if they like this kind of movie) and then just forget about it.
