• Its shortcomings notwithstanding, it’s a good example of an entertaining commercial film that didn’t need to be lazy or senseless. Don’t miss it; easily one of the better films this year.

    It’s a somber, well-assembled film in contrast to the quick and flashy schlock that would have been doled out by the aforementioned merchants of middlebrow masala, and while the film’s craft — and the acting chops shared by its considerable cast — can’t at all be denied, it must also be said that perhaps the trashier approach may have worked better for this material. Or, at the very least, made for more fun.

  • Talaash is intelligently structured – it goes back and forth in time as the investigating officer struggles to piece together the mystery behind an unexplained fatal road mishap involving a male movie star whose speeding car veers off a sea-facing road and plunges into the water.

    This film is a good attempt at revisiting suspense flicks that were a huge craze in the 50-60s.

  • For those patient through sit and allow the movie to take over, Talaash offers a lot with the mystery, Aamir and Rani’s performances, and enticing cinematography. But others might be put off by the unconventional story might not satisfy all.
