My Views/Take on TALAASH
This Being My Most Awaited Movie this Year, I am Dissapointed to an Extent by TALAASH.
Reema Kagti’s Supposed ‘Suspense’ Turned ‘Supernatural’ Thriller Starts of Well and Builds it’s Premise Interestingly thru the Marine Drive’s and Kamatipura’s of Mumbai.
Infact, the Entire Prostitution Track Consisting of Well Cast Unknown Actors and Nawaaz is Highly Engaging and Gives a Certain Raw/Real Feel to the Movie.
But, the Relatively Slow Pace and the Unintelligent Ending[Kareena Saving Aamir inside the Water/Aamir Digging the Grave/Burning her Remains] Harm the Movie Big Time.
There was No Element of Double Crossing Or a Surprise Shock Element[An Abbas-Mustan Staple] but it Actually Took the ‘Bhoot/Aatmaien Bhatakti Hain’ Angle which was a bit Difficult to Digest.
The BG Score was Used Adequately and Still in Love with ‘Jee Le Zarra’.
Mumbai has been well Depicted.
Rani has a Small Role but Shines in her Showdown Sequence with Aamir.
All the Scenes Involving the Kid, Nawaaz and the Red Light Area were Brilliant at Different Levels.
Aamir Khan as always a Quality Acting Force Rocks the Movie with his Brooding Act and his Scenes with Kareena are A Delight.
But, Surprisingly it’s Kareena Kapoor who Steals the Show with her Teasing And Smirking and has Dialogues.
It’s Good to see Her put a Good Amnt of Effort in for her Role and Not just Being the Mere Eye Candy like in 3Idiots,G3,RA.One, Agent Vinod, BG ETC.
A ‘Shoutout’ to Kagti for her TIGHT DIRECTION and Handling the Movie to her level best inspite of a Flawed Script but Negative Marking for the ‘Bhatt/RGV’ Like Ending Done with a ‘Excel’ like Treatment.
Expected Much Better from Talaaash but it’s Not Exactly Crap Movie Either but Totally WTF and Superb at Places.
TALAASH also Proves that Aamir can Make Mistakes too but is an Actor who can Emote Better and is Never a Total Bore Onscreen Unike the Other 2Khans Offlate who Seem to Sleepwalk/Ham.
