Talaash- Movie Review

Roochster

My mind has been blown! Once again, Aamir Khan proves that he’s not just doing movies to make money or remain famous. He’s genuinely interested in making movies that move you or make you think. With Talaash, he restores all the faith we have in good Indian cinema. Read more.

A popular actor mysteriously meets with an accident, falls into the sea and drowns. Aamir Khan, the cop in charge of this case, with his personal issues tries to solve the mystery and find the person behind the actor’s death. Kareena Kapoor plays a prostitute and Rani Mukherji plays Aamir’s wife. Will not reveal anymore.

Zoya Akhtar and Reema Kagti have written a very clever and gripping plot that you can’t possibly predict until the very end. That is beautifully executed in a mind numbing suspense thriller film. I also think that a story like this could be a brilliant book! The cinematography is outstanding and rich, especially the scene shot in the water with Kareena Kapoor and Aamir Khan. The screenplay and dialogues are good. The production design, make up, hair is all wonderfully styled. All the characters are well defined and the build up to the climax is very well paced in the second half of the movie. Yes, the first half is a bit slow but chalo, maaf kiya because it all comes together and makes sense in the end!

Aamir Khan is fantastic throughout the film and doesn’t for a second make you feel like you’re watching Aamir Khan the star! He’s completely ghusaod himself into the skin of the character he plays. Kareena Kapoor looks stunning and plays her role with a tremendous amount of confidence and ease. Rani Mukherji, even with barely any make up, convinces you well that she’s a depressed housewife longing for love from her husband. I also thought Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Shernaz Patel acted very well.

The music and background score by Ram Sampat is noteworthy. ‘Jee Le Zara’ sung by Vishal Dadlani has a lot of soul, ‘Muskaanein jhoothi hain’ sung by Suman Shridhar has that thriller edge to it and is sung with lots of style, ‘Jiya laage na’ sung by Sona Mohapatra and Ravindra Upadhyay is my personal favourite! Javed Akhtar’s lyrics are beautiful and meaningful as most times.

I left the theatre with lots of questions in my head, confusion, goosebumps and awe. To me it is a superb film that cannot be missed!

Rating– 4/5
