Bollywood crime thriller shot in Ireland

Dublin may look great in it, but a new Bollywood film mainly shot in Ireland has been getting very mixed reviews.

In the romantic crime thriller Teraa Surroor, Raghu (Himesh Reshammiya) is on a mission to save his girlfriend Tara (Farah Karimaee) from imprisonment in Ireland, after she is framed for drug trafficking.

When the film went on release in India this week, BollywoodLife.com rated it 3 out of 5 as "a typical masala entertainer with some great music".

But the Hindustan Times gave it 1.5 stars, describing it as a "mysterious, melodious, super cheesy, unintentionally funny, half baked, impractical and futile film". The Indian Express called it a mess, giving it only half a star.
"Teraa Surroor appears to be an international conspiracy, where the Irish are subjected to immense torture because an Indian guy is there to seek revenge on another Indian guy."
