Talaash (2012): Revewed
The movie starts with random scenes from the darker side of Mumbai followed by the accident scene (supperb!). The movie takes us through a detailed investigation of this accident which involves a superstar Armaan Kapoor. Director Reema Kagti shrewdly blends Surjan Singh Shekhawat’s (Aamir Khan) personal life and the Talaash-shuda life. The story co-written by Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar is gripping throughout. Nawazuddin Siddiqui plays the character so proficiently that he makes you think that he limps in real-life too. Kareena Kapoor plays a prostitute named Rosy who helps Aamir in the investigation and also with his disturbed maritial life with Rani Mukherjee. The intemission kind of breaks the flow of a very cautiously threaded movie. The climax disappoints. It definitely stuns you but with Aamir Khan out there I expected a supperb ending to the thriller. The songs donot disturb. A special mention to Farhan Akhtar for the dialogues and Anurag Kashyap for the additional dialogues (I am sure you will identify these additional dialogues!). Go find err...talaash the movie in your nearest theater because you donot want to miss this one.
