Priyadarshan’s Tezz is on waves of success. A presentation of United 7 Entertainment, the flick is a thriller that has been produced by Ratan Jain and features the likes of Ajay Devgan, Anil Kapoor, Kangna Ranaut, Sameera Reddy, Zayed Khan and Boman Irani.
Priyadarshan had previously titled the movie ‘Bullet Train’ but later changed the title to Tezz. The storyline of the film is totally taken from the Hollywood thriller Speed and you may say that it is the remake of the Hollywood thriller. Officially the makers have not announced so but it seems soon the announcement will be made.
Contrary to his filmmaking, director Priyadarshan has changed his style totally by turning face from comedies to an action packed thriller. Special attention has been given to action in the movie for which parkour techniques have been used colossally. The famed stunt choreographer Gareth Milne has been brought from Hollywood to doll up the film’s action sequences. Peter Pedrero, another stunt choreographer, has been taken to coordinate with Gareth in the film.
Tezz has been filmed in various international locations such as London, Glasgow and Birmingham. Previously the film was planned for release along with Ranbir Kapoor starrer Rockstar. Priyan did not want to have clash with Rockstar so the film got delayed. Now it will be released on 12th April, 2012.
Sajid-Wajid, the composers’ duo, has scored the music for this movie. Extensive promotion has not been started for the film yet. Once started, the movie will begin making its mark among the masses.Read also
