OK movie
13 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Suneel and Dharmesh Darshan brothers who came into the film making business with blockbusters like Lootere, Raja Hindustani, Dhadkan, and hits like Jaanwar, Andaaz and a few others. But, Suneel just like his brother ended his career with 2 back to back disasters Mere Jeevan Sathi and Shakalaka Boom Boom. Mere Jeevan Sathi can be put in Darshan's worst romantic film and this one could be his worst action film. Coming to Talash, the film is typical, boring, no good reasons for it to be even an average hit. The film is the typical action which Darshan must have copied from another director because his films are natural and this one feels like a typical delayed 90's film. There is no actual story to tell, his sister gets kidnapped, his dad dies, his mom becomes insane and he teams up with his cop friend and guide to find his sister, take revenge and kill the enemy? How many times have we seen such typical films. I think the 90s was filled with these typical movies but they had good handling. But, this movie has been badly edited and it looks like it was rushed. The action scenes are done to death and the addition of unusual violence in the climax doesn't impress anyone Darshan. The film is so bad it makes you cringe,though this released before Akki's Hatya which was a disaster, it seems to be even worse. Performances are average, Akshay does OK, Kareena back then was terrible, Ashsish Vidyaharthi is always the typical cop in a Suneel Darshan action movie and his role can be played by anyone because he has the same dialogues, he basically sleepwalks in his role and this role of his makes his role in Mrityudata a classic. Overall, another typical crap which was a box office bomb.
