One of the worst movies I have seen in my life
30 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was tricked into watching this film after seeing the promos. But this film had nothing novel. Esmayeel Shroff picked up a good subject but he failed to execute it properly.

The heroine (Tabu) is murdered but she just appears in flashbacks told by various characters that she interacted with while she was alive. A smart cop (Nana Patekar) is investigating Tabu's murder and finally he succeeds in tracking down the real killer. But by the time the identity of the killer is revealed, the director has tested much of your patience. And you'd just want to turn off your TV and go to sleep. The motive of the killer is weak. The director could've come up with billion good reasons for the murder of the heroine.

Tabu looks stale throughout the movie. Nana Patekar was great but the horrendous plot didn't do justice to his character. Shilpa Shetty looked svelte and was awesome in 'Dupatte ka pallu' song which I believe zoomed to the top of the chart in 2000. Ashutosh Rana is wasted and so is Milind Soman. Aditya Pancholi had nothing to do. His character was introduced just to add to the length of the movie.

At the box-office, 'Tarkieb' would find a tough competition. Avoid!
