    This thoroughly engrossing, highly anticipated picture boasts assured direction by sophomore helmer Reema Kagti, a well-constructed script by Kagti and fellow femme writer Zoya Akhtar, and strong thesping by familiar Bollywood luminaries Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji.

    It's very much a Hindi film, but updated and delivered with conviction and style.

    Some thrillers are described as taut. Talaash isn't taut, but loose and messy, the better to allow life's jagged edges to disturb the muscular, controlled world that its protagonist, Surjan "Suri" Shekhawat, has created for himself. When those inevitable cracks appear in Suri's world, the film grabs on tight and doesn't let go.

    The provocative noir experience that Talaash promises, with its jazzily scored, moodily lighted opening montage of a Mumbai red-light district at night, is nowhere to be found once this meandering mystery begins.

    What will you believe , what do you believe , what can you believe? These are the questions asked in this movie. Will you believe some fact that has been already established in your knowledge-book as a ridiculous lie.This movie will appeal to many and also be repelled by many.These types of movies are already made in 'Hollywood' but you have to see this.This has got it's own style,own setting , everything else to fit into the mood of an Indian cine-goer.People may say that it has been inspired by many Hollywood movies and is made after the success horn is blown but my friends it is not an entire remake like a 'Salman' movie . The acting is outstanding by everyone , as usual the dialogues of 'Farhan Akhtar' fit into the dark,mysterious and painful mood of the story but this time he has delivered some hard hitting dialogues.It maybe because he was accompanied by 'Anurag Kashyap'.Many people spread many rumours but don't trust those. This movie is shot during the night time to give it a dark mood , you can say neo-noirish type and is perfect for this flick which will hold you to your seats.After almost 2 years ,that is after 'Kaminey' this is the movie which really counted as a dark movie in 'Bollywood'. You will see characters having self- introspection,characters fighting with their own life and pain.They will be trying to escape but something holds them tight and doesn't let them go.Trust me and go for this.I hope you won't regret.

    Talaash is a movie which will appeal to class audience . People who like movies such as RR,ETT, ready or Bodyguard may hate it . But it's a Fine paced thriller which is slow at times. Performances are really good. Aamir Khan Does well in his restricted act. Rani and Kareena Are good. Nawazuddin Is Fantastic. Overall a fine Thriller . Expand

    Talaash is a great opportunity wasted. Rarely has a director been provided a bounty like Reema Kagti had at her disposal. An actor who could no wrong, the most accomplished star that Bollywood had to offer. Two of the best actresses of our generation. The best producer that a creative director could ask for. A great story line. And talaash, I repeat is a wasted opportunity. The worst dialogues ever written in Bollywood can be heard in this movie. Aamir has been reduced tu shade of what he is capable of. Only Rani redeems herself in this sham of a movie. Expand
