We should know, there is a lot of searching in ‘Talaash’ before analyzing the movie, I just wish to state one thing. You have not watched a suspense thriller like ‘Talaash’ on the Hindi screen. Aamir Khan is back and yes, with a bang. Even though this reviewer is not a die-hard fan of Aamir Khan, the truth is that you can love him or hate him, but there is no escaping his films.
However, ‘Talaash’ which was originally slated to release last year, proves once again this actor’s films are not to be skipped and completely worth the wait.
‘Talaash’ story Director Reema Kagti intentionally chooses this treatment tone to lend individuality to the murder mystery. But the cinematic gratification is largely subjective. ‘Talaash’ stands on its feet for the reason that it merges conspiracy, tension and tragedy with dexterousness. Add to it the turn of events, the razor sharp dialogue and of course, the suspense…‘Talaash’ takes the suspense angle to a new altitude altogether, emerging into an exceptionally constructed mystery.
While, the film starts with a car bumping off into the sea leading to the death of a film actor. Inspector Shekhawat, who is informed about the accident and subsequent death of a superstar. The case turns into a life altering chase for Inspector Shekhawat when he is forced to reel under the repercussions of a disturbed married life Rani Mukherji and come face to face with his suppressed grief. Being on his investigative quest, Inspector Shekhawat meets a sex worker Kareena Kapoor, who further adds shades of mystery to the puzzle. What looks like a simple car accident investigation turns into a haunting mystery as further investigations show many anomalies were stringed to the death of the victim.
Nevertheless, ‘Talaash’ successfully whets the appetite of all the Aamir Khan fans. As for the story, you can always trust Zoya Akhtar to give her best. ‘Talaash’ is not a flawless film, but it is a fascinating tale that compels one to look beyond that which is evident. You can not miss this one.
