Critic Reviews for Talaash
Performances are uniformly impressive, with Khan proving again that he is the finest actor of his generation.
This thoroughly engrossing, highly anticipated pic boasts assured direction by sophomore helmer Reema Kagti, a well-constructed script by Kagti and... Zoya Akhtar, and strong thesping by familiar Bollywood luminaries.
Ultimately the movie's many strands come together for a final twist, but it's too little too late for this regrettably mediocre Bollywood import.
Kapoor naturally exudes a kittenish charm that not even a violet, skintight, leopard-print dress and equally purple dialogue can entirely diminish.
Audience Reviews for Talaash
Brillant character study in the realm of grief and loss. I enjoyed the twist and how the film came together at the end. Would have got 5 stars if not for the extremely slow pace
May add a comment later...........
***SPOILERS AHEAD*** CONS first : Some of the dialogues were kinda filmy and you would not know until you are deep in to it, but there is some supernatural stuff too. I say 'filmy dailogues' because couple of times, the characters were thinking really loud and explaining whats happening at that point in the movie, duh!. If that ghost-whisperer actress hadnt been on a shouting spree (and if I hadnt watched years ago and still remember "The Sixth Sense"), I never would have guessed the 'big twist' in the plot. Still a damn good suspense thriller - Talaash. Now for PROs:Aamir gives you the same vibe as a a cop, not the usual hindi-filmy-cop-dude. Rani is the underdog who gets to steal the thunder with her subtle, sensitive performance. For probably only the second time in her career, Kareena fits the role and plays a glossy kitten (Jab We Met is the first one, in case you are still wondering).Bollywood has grown up, with a few quirks though, it took a supernatural angle to get a suspense drama across to the targeted mostly towards urban audiences, and in true filmy style, I would quote Aamir Khan from the movie 'Andaz Apna Apna' :: "Shahbaash mere Sher!"
