Ta-fuq? – My Views/Take on TALAASH

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.

RATING – 2.5/5

    if at all aamir is ineffective as an actor in Talaash..he was in the ajay devgan mode for a change….Wannabe intense to be precise..Its kareena who make the movie watchable…

    I was quite surprised with kareena in this film. ppl who think her loud retarded act in JWM is the best should see this. This is the real deal for kareena. She even outshone aamir in a couple of scenes who is otherwise in fine form himself.

    Agree with You Baba.. I wud Like to Know ur Rating on TALAASH.


    Liked the Dialogues they gave to Kareena Kapoor.

    Nawaaz Seeing Kareena Just before Dying and Shernaz Calling Out to Aatma’s was B-Grade Stuff.

    Sequences I Liked :-

    – The First Accident

    – Aamir-Kareena Interactions

    – Aamir-Rani Showdown

    – Aamir Scenes at Red Light Area

    – The Scenes of Nawaaz and the One Featuring the Kid’s Death

    I wud Say Kahaani, Race and Johnny Gaddar were Definately Better Films than Talaash.


    Sequences like Aamir-Rani Showdown, Aamir-Kareena Convo, Aamir Thinking abt his Kid, Aamir-Kareena in the Lift/Elevator go Onto Show why Excel is Supreme Rocker at Depicting the Emotional Turmoil and Drama Onscreen in the BEST WAY.

    DCH, ZNMD, Rock On!!!, Talaash, Lakshya

    For Someone Who has Seen it All from Psycho to The Game to Prestige to Memento to Gupt to Shutter Island to Kahaani to JG to Zodiac to Se7en to Fight Club to Insomnia to Sixth Sense to Usual Suspects to MoM/Chaser/ISTD etc etc etc, I Consider TALAASH to be a Huge Nothing.

      Yeah same feeling here! Unfortunate …

    • I.One 11 years ago

      Yeah Serenzy. Saw all the movies you have mentioned. Talaash was neither a good suspense, nor thriller, nor a police investigation, nor a supernatural, nor a psychopath nor a hard-hitting drama ….

    Aamir and Rani Watch ‘Golmaal-3’ in Theatre which has Kareena in a Lead Role.

    😛 😉
