Storyline

On a sight-seeing road trip of India, U.K. based Manav Mehta meets Mansi, the daughter of a singer, Tarababu. He is attracted to her, and makes his attraction known. She also is attracted to him eventually. Her dad approves of Manav, and both go to Bombay to meet his family. On their arrival itself, they are shunned and treated as second class citizens, and this lasts throughout the day, with the treatment getting worst at every point. Both decide to leave. Mansi decides to improve her career, leaving the past behind, and meets with Vikrant Kapoor, who helps her get started. Both see each other regularly, and soon decide to get married. In the meantime, Manav has not given up hope to marry Mansi, despite opposition from his and her families. Manav relentlessly purses his dream of marrying Mansi, even on the day of her marriage to Vikrant. Written by rAjOo (gunwanti@hotmail.com)

a refreshing romantic musical from Subash Ghai.......
4 January 2016 | by (Nepal) – See all my reviews

The specialities of movies made by Subash Ghai remain the camera work and music though the stories he takes are quite familiar. "Taal" is simply a love story with a wafer thin plot, but the flow and the beauty with which the film proceeds is pretty attractive. There are certain flaws, but the film is still refreshing for the music of AR Rehman, brilliant sets, and a beautiful cinematography. Perhaps in her earlier roles, Aishwarya Rai looks beautiful and acts well. Akshaye Khanna and Anil Kapoor look quite familiar. The flaws of the film include it goes for an over-length in the second half and towards the second half the twists go for some lightness. Anyway, this might not be the best film from Subash Ghai; but it indeed is a good effort from him, which should get a special mention.

Rating: 2 stars out of 4
