A cool call center executive Jimmy Cliff, a desi wannabe gangster Bachchan Pande add for good measure a beautiful girl, Pooja, who can’t be trusted, on a journey across spectacular India, a journey which will alter the course of their lives in more ways than one, a journey where even enemies need to trust each other if they want to be alive. Trouble is, in this world no one can be trusted ever! And to top it all there is the evil eye of Bhaiyyaji, a maverick gangster who enjoys killing people as much as he enjoys speaking English. What you get is... TASHAN. (Yash Raj Films) Collapse

    Vijay Krishna Acharya, an accomplished screenwriter making his directing debut, seems eager to show that he can deliver a movie in the high style -- bright, pop and technically sophisticated -- to which Bollywood has become accustomed.

    Tashan is sadly a pulpy cheesy action flick with a major amount of flaws. This movie is bad, story and acting. I LOVE Akshay Kumar but thisTashan is sadly a pulpy cheesy action flick with a major amount of flaws. This movie is bad, story and acting. I LOVE Akshay Kumar but this movie ruined his career. Saif and Kareena are there as always, but Anil Kapoor is the best of the bunch. Watch it for Anil, if not- ignore it. The cheese is there but the skill isn't there. Rated U/A for bloody violence including some torture, sexual content, language and alcohol usage throughout. Expand

    For a movie that promised to be so much, Tashan did not just leave you with a sour taste in the mouth, it also left you with an almost For a movie that promised to be so much, Tashan did not just leave you with a sour taste in the mouth, it also left you with an almost overwhelming desire to gouge out your eyes with a spoon. And also an urge to hunt down whoever made this movie and shoot them. The movie is peppered with a lot of colorful characters. And some potentially great action sequences. Yet the makers of this "movie" somehow contrived to make the whole much much less than the sum of it's parts. How Yash raj films even decided to release this movie may never be known. What we have is a movie that is trying it's hardest to be a curious mixture of a romantic comedy, a hardcore action flick and a kung fu movie but ended up as something that does not fall into any of these genres. As if performing seemingly impossible stunts weren't enough (very badly, it must be said), the movie also incorporates an extremely cheesy storyline into the mix along with some wannabe Matrix moments. it's almost as though they made up the movie as they went along. Don't mistake. This is Bollywood at it's worst. For an industry that provided such timeless classics as Sholay and Devdas (the original), this is a new low. Those movies left you with moments that you want to remember forever. Unsurprisingly the only moment you will remember from this movie is wanting the tedium to end as soon as possible. Possibly the worst movie in the decade. Expand

It's an exercise in masochism. On the other hand, ALL film makers, Bollywood or otherwise, must watch it to learn about the key points of bad film-making in this millennium. Expand
