Movie: Talaash

Director: Reema kagti

Cast: Aamir Khan, Rani Mukerji, Kareena Kapoor, Nawazuddin Siddiqui and Shernaz Patel

Jagran rating: good

Story Line: Aamir as always knocks your sock off by his remarkable movies and this time his thriller flick Talaash gearing up for a bumper opening at box office. It’s a nail-biting thriller movie which compels you to watch this movie again and again.

The plot about a police officer Surjan Singh Shekhawat (Aamir Khan) investigating a high profile case of film star Armaan Kapoor's accidental death keeps you riveted. Alongside the main plot, one gathers that Shekhawat and his wife Roshni (Rani Mukerji), have lost their eight-year-old son Karan in a freak accident in a lake, for which Shekhawat blames himself and lives in guilt.

His investigations constantly lead him to Kareena Kapoor, a prostitute with a good heart, who acts as the ace informer for Shekhawat. Kareena as Rosy, has shades of her earlier "Chameli", although she makes a conscious effort to be different. She is effective and convincing, touching your heart with the innate goodness of her character, in spite of her circumstances.

Thumbs Up: The film is entirely unpredictable, not conforming to the usual approach to thrillers in Bollywood. This one is clearly different and keeps you guessing till the very end. The climax brings you to the edge of your seat, but leaves you satiated. As the case unfolds, you get your answers from the characters on celluloid. But clearly, Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar, the scriptwriter duo, give you much more than just that. They take you through a complete self-exploratory journey and bring you back replete with answers. Farhan Akhtar's dialogues in colloquial parlance are witty and unleash several underlying messages.

Rani Mukerji in her de-glam avatar, is true to her character as the distraught mother. Ram Sampath gives an apt background score. You’re definitely not complaining. The plot and performances leave no room for frivolities.

Thumbs Down: After watching this movie we are unable to find any flaws in it.

Totally different from the usual masala movies, this one is pure treat. Apart from Aamir’s fans, Talaash has the power to grip all cine-goers.
