More interesting than Dhoom 2
6 May 2007 | by See all my reviews

This film is such a joy for Hindi cinema goers and non Hindi cinema goers alike.

The songs are fantastic, they really move the story along and occur at just the right time to heighten the emotion. AB to forever is so catchy the audience clapped along! It is not a film for men who are expecting The fast and the Furious, it is a film, for softies - a great and genuinely lovable cast of characters portrayed with dignity and truth by top actors as they face the trials of life - with courage and a smile, according to the tag line. And they really do.

Rani and Saif are a believable and appealing couple, one hopes they will be paired again on screen, the children are adorable. Rani drunk is HI-Larious and Saif is such a thoughtful and witty actor. They both look at their most beautiful in this film. The family unit is totally compelling.

Ta Ra Rum Pum stays true to its Indian heart whilst embracing Western cultures and ideas without envy. A very enjoyable well made film
