Above-Average!
30 July 2014 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Heavily inspired by the Hollywood flop Saving Silverman, 'De Taali' is an Above-Average fare, that isn't entirely a waste of time. Its, at best, a passable film, with some really good performances!

'De Taali' revolves around three childhood friends, whose lives change after a girl enters their lives with questionable reasons.

'De Taali' has a pleasant first-hour, with the camaraderie between its protagonists, played by Aftab Shivdasani, Ayesha Takia & Ritesh Deshmukh, clicking well. Things take a u-turn when Rimi Sen's character enters. The entire kidnapping episode is strictly average. Also, the true identity of Rimi's character, lacks the fizz. Overall, a nicely shaped first-hour gets over-shadowed by a rather disappointing second-hour.

The Screenplay offers a few enjoyable moments, but the second-hour doesn't convince in totality. E. Nivas's Direction lacks sharpness. Cinematography is alright. Ditto for the Editing. Music by Vishal-Shekhar is energetic.

Performance-Wise: Ritesh Deshmukh is up for vie top honors. The versatile actor pitches in a credible, comedic performance, that leads the film. Aftab Shivadasani, too, delivers wonderfully. Ayesha Takia is cute. Rimi Sen is in excellent form. She enacts the mysterious part with great confidence. However, supremely talented actors such as Anupam Kher, Saurabh Shukla, Pawan Malhotra & Mukul Dev, are wasted in ill-defined roles.

On the whole, 'De Taali' is a reasonably entertaining film.
