Tashan Rocks
11 August 2008 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I just saw Tashan.Why do you guys who says this movie is bad? This movie is cool.

Some d**b f*** critics compared it with Ramgopal Varma Ki Aag.Either they have not seen Aag or Tashan.I saw both of them.Aag is the worst movie I have ever seen.It was a complete disaster in every department.Cult classic Sholay did not receive such a punishment.

As in the case of Tashan, it is 1 billion times better than Aag.It is not for intellectuals or for people looking for a solid script.The truth is the script is as old as the hills.But the movie is not boring.Not even for a nano second.The credit goes to the four main actors(Akshay,Anil,Saif and Kareena delivered superb performances.),the dialogues,the songs(Tashan Mein and Dil Dance Maare rocks), the choreography, the sets, the background music the action scenes and the pace of the movie.The action scenes could have been better. Also the henchmen of Anil Kapoor were ridiculous.

The movie would not have been half as entertaining without Akshay.You will love his character.A wannabe shooter with a heart of gold.He is the soul of the movie.

A perfect weekend movie.Just sit back and enjoy.

NB: Maybe I should also say that you have to be an Akshay Kumar fan in order to enjoy the movie.I am one.For the past 14 years
