(Loose translation equals bad acting, generally suffered by... yeah, bad actors.) Case Studies:
Salman Khan has lost it... the acting skills he possessed during the days of HAHK, Saajan and, more recently, Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam
. He looks stoned for most part of Tere Naam. Almost as if he knew right from the start that a remake of a tragic (in more ways than one) South Indian film (Sethu in Tamil, Seshu in Telugu) would flop anyway. He would have preferred to invest energy into activities like chasing models-turned-actresses, which Bhoomika is not.
Bhoomika makes a rather wishy-washy debut in Hindi. Her quivering lips and unglamorous look might have worked in Okkadu
, but they look sad in Tere Naam. If Sallu fetches more whistles from the men in the theaters, don't doubt their sexuality... Bhoomika does nothing that elicits even a faint tweet. This disorder afflicts the supporting cast, too - mostly played by unidentifiable actors.
