Talaash Movie Review:

Rating: 3.5

Talaash starts off with a delectably picturised opening credit sequence that shows Mumbai in the dead of the night, set to the jazzy Muskaanein jhoothi hai. The sequence is captured beautifully by KU Mohanan (whose work on Aushim Ahluwalia’s Miss Lovely was among its redeeming qualities) in an attractive dark tint, a feature that remains admirably consistent throughout the film.

Talaash, by and large, is an atmosphere-driven movie. It sucks you into a vortex of whore houses, night-patrolling cops, and into the mind of a troubled policeman. Surjan Shekhawat (Khan) is dealing with the death of his only son even as he tries to balance a fractured relationship with his wife (Mukherjee) and the high-profile investigation of a film star’s death. Scoffing at the idea that his deceased son may be trying to communicate with him, Shekhawat finds solace in the companionship of an informant helping him with his case: the sex worker Rosy (Kapoor).

Reema Kagti and Zoya Akhtar’s screenplay has various strands, some difficult to keep track of, but that’s largely intentional. All its detours, and various sub-tracks, are part of a smart build-up to the finale. Will grieving parents deal with the loss of their only child? Will the mystery surrounding the accident of the film star be solved? Do ghosts really find a way to communicate with the living world? Kagti lays out her cards on the table from the word go, letting you put pieces of the puzzle together as you go along. It’s a difficult plot to hold together and editor Anand Subaya must have had a tough task at hand. The effort shows in places.

To her credit, Kagti stays true to the subject matter, and keeps the mood sombre and the narrative moving. Humour is sparse and unexpected – like a bewildered subordinate stuck between a quarrelling husband and wife – but never forced. Ram Sampath’s catchy score, Sharmishta Roy’s deft handling of the art design and Nandini Shrikent’s casting of all the right actors even in the small parts make all the difference.

I found Aamir Khan’s portrayal of Shekhawat inconsistent, the actor best when playing a troubled father rather than a stern cop. However, you have to give him credit for taking on a film that hardly conforms to commercial norms. Khan’s presence will help Talaash get wide reach, and give viewers a chance to experience a film that doesn't entirely take its audience for granted. Rani Mukherji is good in a small role, while Kareena Kapoor is likeable, even though she comes across as a bit too refined to play a commercial sex worker. The film’s standout performance comes from Nawazuddin Sidiqui, who’s had a cracker of a year so far (Kahaani, Gangs Of Wasseypur, Chittagong). As Temur, Siddiqui’s character has a well-etched graph and his track complements the central plot well. Raj Kumar Yadav makes an impression in the role of Shekhawat’s subordinate.

There are times when you feel Talaash might fall apart, but it thankfully comes together neatly in the last 30 minutes or so. As much as the story hinges on the final revelation – one that’s supposed to jolt you – the journey itself isn’t too bad either. It demands an investment of time and patience, surely, but the pay-off is rewarding. How much you like or dislike the film will largely depend on whether the final twist works for you. It did for me.

Talaash Music Review:


By Bhaskar Pant (IANS)

Talaash music review; Music Director: Ram Sampath; Lyricist: Javed Akhtar; Singers: Suman Sridhar, Vishal Dadlani, Sona Mahapatra, Ravindra Upadhyay and Ram Sampath; Rating: ***

Ram Sampath, who entertained music lovers with the quirky and peppy numbers in Delhi Belly, has composed for Talaash five original tracks and one remix, with the lyrics being penned by Javed Akhtar.

The album starts with a bang with a jazzy and groovy number "Muskaanen jhooti hai", crooned by Suman Sridhar, the voice behind hit tracks "Hawa hawai" and "Khoya khoya chand" in the film "Shaitan". She paints a sexy and suave picture with the track, which features Kareena Kapoor. The composition is neat with some fine experimentation, and the singer gets the number kicking.

Next up is "Jee le zaraa". It is edgy thanks to Vishal Dadlani's distinct baritone and high-pitched voice, which provide the song good energy, duly combined with a technically sound composition with great beats. The lyrics, penned by Javed Akhtar, are easy on the ear. It also has a remixed version, with a quicker pace. It tries to reverberate club energy with good techno and thrashing beats. However, when compared to the original, it fails to captivate the listener beyond a point.

"Jiya laage na" brilliantly mixes elements of Indian classical and electronic music. Sona Mahapatra and Ravindra Upadhyay are good behind the mike. Despite the positive energy, the song just tries too hard to fit in one particular genre, and in the end, it fails to get a position anywhere. Something's amiss here, a vital ingredient that could have made this track a hit with the listeners.

Retaining the electronic flavour is "Hona hai kya", which has Ram Sampath himself behind the mike. The song builds up nicely and has a dark kind of feel around it. The lyrics are effective and manage to hook the listener. It would be interesting to see how it has been used in the film.

Rounding up the album is "Laakh duniya kahe", a rock ballad sung by Ram Sampath. It tugs right at the heartstrings with romantic lyrics, coupled with the singer's soothing voice. The chorus too is nice with good use of instruments like drums and the guitar to get the desired result.

Overall, the soundtrack is not out-of-the-box, but the overdose of electronic music doesn't bother either. Thus, it's an album which may not top the charts, but some songs could definitely make their way into many people's personal playlists.
