  • Talaash Takes Bumper Opening

    Talaash Takes Bumper Opening In Mumbai, Rajesh Thadani of Multimedia Combines says, “Talaash opened at 70-80 per cent in Mumbai and across India. Its reports are also good and almost all the night shows have been booked in advance. The weekend too is promising for the film as all three actors, Aamir Khan, Rani Mukerji and Kareena Kapoor, have a huge fan following.” In Delhi-UP, Sanjay Ghai of Mukta Arts adds, “There were heavy rains in our region last night and the weather was very cold. People usually don’t venture out to watch movies in the morning under these conditions but Talaash opened at 80-90 per cent in UP-Delhi. The numbers are expected to go up after the noon shows. And footfalls will further increase

  • Single Screens And Mass Belts Low For Talaash

    Talaash could not open well at single screens and multiplexes in mass dominated circuits and there was not much improvement in the shows after. The multiplexes are in urban cities are good but eventually there is a limit to how far these cinema’s can take a film. The single screen opening is around 40%. The first day will come out with a decent total but not the sort of number expected from a wide release Aamir Khan film after three years. The average business in many circuits will tell on the first day business despite big contribution’s by metro multiplexes. The business in the big circuits (Mumbai and Delhi/UP) is not optimum as if Mumbai city has good numbers, Gujarat has low figures. If Delhi

  • Movie Review: TALAASH by FENIL SETA

    When Aamir Khan was last seen on screen as a lead actor, in 3 Idiots, history was created. The film broke box office records but most importantly, gave us an experience that we can cherish and remember forever fondly. Aamir Khan became synonymous with entertaining, meaningful, sensible cinema and his forthcoming films became eagerly awaited. Surprisingly, Aamir vanished from Bollywood scenario and didn’t even sign a film for a long time, instead devoting time to his television show Satyamev Jayate. And finally, when Aamir chose Talaash, the fans and industry heaved a sigh of relief. The ‘thinking Khan’ will be back soon after all! Again, Aamir made us wait, postponing the film to almost 5 months and finally, here comes November 30. And here comes

  • TALAASH Is Unoriginal Boring Film

    Pluses: Aamir Khan delivers fantastic performance as always, direction is tight and background score is super, Kareena Kapoor at her best and so is Rani, Nawazuddin and Rajkumar are good in supporting roles Minuses: 3rd rate copied script from Hollywood classics, bad screenplay and even worse lighting, songs does not add anything to the film Critic Rating: 3/5

  • 4/5 – Movie Review: Aamir Khan’s Talaash is where your search for a good film begins

    Talaash opens with a haunting musical track, Muskanein Jhoothi Hain, filmed in Bombay’s red light district. Arresting visuals of Mumbai by night, lend themselves beautifully to the mysterious air that pervades the night. As you take it all in with the title credits rolling on to the screen, wondering what Aamir Khan’s Talaash in the film will be, the languid pace is broken by a speeding car, that loses control and heads straight into the sea after hitting the promenade in the dead of the night. Enter Inspector Surjan S Shekhawat, played by Aamir Khan at the scene of the accident the following morning. It comes to light that a film star, Armaan Kapoor (Vivaan Bhatena) was driving the car and drowned in the process

  • 4/5 – ‘Talaash’ review: The story does the trick

    Writing and making thrillers is never easy. It has to be gripping, should engage the viewers and has to steer away from predictability. And Reema Kagti’s ‘Talaash’ scores in all these aspects. Written by Reema and Zoya Akhtar, ‘Talaash’ grips you from the very first shot and keeps you hooked through the two and half hours of its runtime. A tale of loss, betrayal and revenge, the film explores the many versions of truth and questions the obvious, leaving the viewer thinking of things unexplained. Superstar Armaan Kapoor’s car nose dives into the sea one late night in Mumbai. While initial reports suggests it to be an accident, Inspector Surjan Singh Shekhwat (Aamir Khan), who is investigating the case, finds a murky case of blackmailing

  • Talaash: Searching for the perfect whodunit

    The worst thing to happen while watching a murder mystery is someone telling you the twist in the tale even before the movie began. The second-worst thing is when you figure out the twist yourself, halfway through the film. Call it a result of watching too many whodunits as a kid, but the twist in Reema Kagti’s “Talaash” was apparent an hour before it ended. After that it was just a matter of waiting to see how it plays out. No surprises there either. Kagti makes a stylised film, a murder mystery that also has an emotional undercurrent and borrows strongly from well-known Hollywood films of the genre (I won’t say which ones for fear of revealing the plot). Aamir Khan plays troubled police inspector

  • Review: Talaash is a mild-goose chase (2.5/5)

    Make no mistake, Talaash is a Vikram Bhatt film. Which isn’t to say Bhatt actually made it (though he or Mohit Suri or Pooja Bhatt may well have at some point, who dare keep count) but that it has a story built on the exact same pulpy foundations. Just yank out the invariably catchy Pritam soundtrack, replace Emraan Hashmi or Randeep Hooda with Aamir Khan and throw in major heroines where Vishesh Films would have cast unfamiliar models. (The only key character in Talaash who isn’t a top actor is, actually, the one who plays a top actor.) To give credit where due, director Reema Kagti and her crew show significant flair in terms of creating atmosphere. Cinematographer Mohanan has always dealt strikingly well with

  • Talaash Movie review By Taran Adarsh [4.5/5]

    Before analyzing the movie, I just wish to state one thing. You haven’t watched a suspense thriller like TALAASH on the Hindi screen. Ever. Also, all those sms-es prior to the release pertaining to the ‘killer’ are humbug, bogus and phony. Another clarification. TALAASH is not remotely similar to KAHAANI. A lot of space was devoted to the imaginary tale that TALAASH and KAHAANI were similar in nature. But you realize it’s an ill-founded rumor as the reels of TALAASH unfold. It’s also alleged that TALAASH borrows from a novella called ‘Act Of Providence’. Then there’s an assumption that TALAASH borrows from SHUTTER ISLAND… Similarities apart, TALAASH stands on its feet for the reason that it merges conspiracy, tension and tragedy with dexterousness.

  • Thuppaki Poster is a copy – Vijay’s movies are garnering an uncalled for tagging

    The generally clean imaged young south superstar “Vijay” who is now basking on the success of his recent money-spinner “Thuppaki” is garnering a not-so-good publicity online due to his recent movie posters lift-offs. Not one but his last back-to-back 3 movies (one shelved) had straight lift-offs from foreign posters. In this era when internet is widely available this kind of plagiarism certainly leaves a bad taste. “Thuppaki” Thuppaki poster which sees Vijay carrying Kajal Agarwal in police uniform, with Kajal wearing his cap, is exact same as Richard Gere’s movie “An Officer and a Gentlemen”. The film has a poster which also has Richard Gere wearing navy uniform, carrying the heroine Debra Winger in his arms, who is seen wearing his hat.

  • ‘Jab Tak Hai Jaan’ is a blockbuster overseas, becomes the fourth biggest grosser

    TALAASH, another feather in Nawazuddin’s cap? Though it was generally believed that this Friday’s big release, TALAASH – THE ANSWER LIES WITHIN, consists of just three main stars, Aamir Khan, Rani Mukherji and Kareena Kapoor, but once the promos were out it became quite clear that the man of the moment, Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays a very important role in the film.

  • BollyWood Movie Review:Talaash

    Aamir Khan’s ‘Talaash’ leaves us spell-bound He, and director Reema Kagti, gives us one of the most riveting movies to call our own. ‘Talaash’ is an incredibly rousing tale of deceit, betrayal and revenge,set against the backdrop of an unforgiving city. It’s a story that forces us to look beyond the obvious, and explore the unknown. The narrative is slow,and intended, brilliantly capturing the essence of what truly lies beneath. We surrender to director Reema Kagti’s,and writer-director Zoya Akhtar’s, exquisite story, allowing them to influence our sensibilities ,unquestioningly. As the curtains go up and credits roll, we are introduced to a mesmeric Mumbai that awakens to a whole new world at night through Mohanan’s mesmeric frames and Ram Sampat’s foot-tapping beats.Just minutes on, a famous

  • ‘Action works best when blended with comedy’-Akshay Kumar

    by Soumita Sengupta (November 29, 2012) He was known for his stunts before he moved to the comedy genre. But 12 years later, with Khiladi 786, Akshay Kumar is back where he began. Kumar talks about being Khiladi and why raw action doesn’t work any more. Being Khiladi I think the true meaning of ‘khiladi’ is someone who takes care of his parents. Maintaining an athletic body, being focused on one’s work and working hard are secondary. The most important thing is to take care of my parents. What makes you the perfect khiladi? Ever since I joined this industry, I have been called ‘Khiladi Kumar’. I have carried this tag for 20 years. It’s a name that was given to me so I didn’t
