After many hours designing, he shows his design to a car company owned by four men (Pankaj Dheer, Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Shakti Kapoor and Mukesh Tiwari), little did he know that they would turn around and patent the design and take credit for it.

After Devesh confronts the men, they fight and Devesh is knocked out and left unconscious. The men decide to place him in his car and dump the car in the nearby lake.

Wonderful not just for the kids but us as well
10 August 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This Sunday I watched Tarzon - The Wonder Car once again with my children. I have watched it a number of times and my children are also sailing in the same boat. This is a movie which I could not see in the theatre which I will always regret because the special effects are a treat to watch on the big screen. This is a movie enjoyable not only by the kids but the grown-ups also.

Abbas-Mustan have tried to be the Alfred Hitchcock of Hindi cinema over the past two decades. They make Hollywood style thrillers by borrowing the plots from the Hollywood itself. However this is the only movie made by them which has a supernatural tinge. And quite naturally, it contains a number of special effects too. The hero of this movie is virtually a car. Talented car designer, Ajay Devgan is murdered by some evil businessmen who drown him alongwith the car designed by him. His son Vatsal Seth grows up with the hardships of life and becomes a mechanic in the garage of Amrish Puri while carrying on with his education simultaneously. One day he sees the car designed by his father in scrap condition. He buys the scrap and renovates the car with a lot of toil and dedication, of course, with the help of the benevolent and kind-hearted Amrish Puri. After the car becomes new afresh and starts treading the roads, Ajay's soul gets into it, turning it into a wonder car (named as Tarzan) which is all set to inflict revenge upon his killers. After all the baddies are killed (one of them being the father of Ayesha Takia, the college-mate of Vatsal and his love-interest), Ajay's soul comes before his son and blesses him.

As I have asserted in the paragraph above, the real hero of this movie is the special car itself which is said to have been created with a huge cost (much more than the money paid to the lead actors of the movie). The special effects associated with the car are just marvellous. The tricky movements of the car, teaching a lesson first to the opponents of the hero in the college and thereafter seeking revenge from the murderers of his father, are hilarious. This is the thing which gives this movie a repeat value. It can be watched any number of times for the adventures of the car. Both Abbas-Mustan and the action director deserve a pat on their back for the magic created on the screen through this car.

The movie is quite engrossing and devoid of any type of boredom. Even the romantic angle between the teeny bopper pair is interesting and lovable with both of them having innocence on their faces. The comedy by Amrish Puri, Rajpal Yadav and certain other characters provides required relief. Even with the comedy and the romance, the movie would have scored because the car's adventures themselves are enough to entertain the audience for its most of the part.

The music composed by Himesh Reshammia is quite good. The picturization of the songs is also praiseworthy. All the technical and production value aspects of the movie are up to the mark.

The performances are good. Both Vatsal and Ayesha are in their teens and they look quite charming. Alongwith them, all the baddies and the actors playing their college-mates have done quite well. The Ajay Devgan in his cameo and Amrish Puri as the Sikh garage owner with Gulshan Grover as the investigating police officer are natural. Rajpal Yadav as the police constable is able to make the viewers laugh time and again whenever the investigation for a new murder takes place.

Tarzan - The Wonder Car was a flop which will always remain a big surprise for me because it has everything that entertains the viewers, children and adults alike. It's a movie that provides wholesome entertainment. I recommend it to all the movie buffs seeking a complete entertainment of two and a half hours.
