• TALVAR is not breakthrough cinema. Neither is it exciting or informative. In fact, it leaves a bad taste in the mouth as most in India have seen ad nauseam on national television the ‘live’ findings of the double murder on a daily basis when the murder rocked the nation in 2008. Same is happening now in the Sheena Bora murder case.

    I feel the industry could have spared Aarushi and her parents this embarrassment.

    Overall, Talvar is a rusty film that disappoints.

  • Meghna Gulzar’s direction is commendable as ‘Talvar’ is a pretty well made film and might manage to strike a chord with the audience who like realistic films. But to be honest, the film might not be able to do the same with audience who like masala entertainers and hence we would say that ‘Talvar’ is a strict no-no for the masala flick fans.
