Surprisingly Better Than Expected
5 July 2008 | by See all my reviews

Before watching De Taali, I had absolutely expected the movie to be another lame one-liner comedy that would compare to the likes of flops such as Tom, Dick & Harry, and Krazzy 4, etc. However, what I received was something totally different.

The first 25 minutes or so of the movie drags poorly, presenting an overly optimistic and naive (and not to mention hackneyed & clichéd) view of the close friendship between the three main characters. This 25 minutes spell is also the driest of all comic events that occur throughout the movie. However, if you can get past this part, you are certainly in for a treat.

The movie only picks up after the poor start. The jokes get continuously better and funnier, and the situational comedy simply cannot be ignored. Some scenes are a pure laugh riot to those who enjoy clever and well-scripted comedy (as opposed to silly banter that most comedy movies these days are now filled with).

The story ties up nicely, though I have to say that the portrayal of the ending could have been a little better. There is nothing wrong with the conclusion reached, but rather the way they approached it following the climax. Of course, the story was somewhat predictable, but the director still managed to keep it fresh.

Acting was great as well. Some actors excelled, while others ranked merely above the line of mediocrity. For instance, Hritesh was excellent in his comic role. He truly has a knack for comedy. Ayesha, as always, portrays a sweet and innocent attitude such convincingly that you can't help but to be impressed by her. Rimi Sen, played her seductive role incredibly well, and keep note of her witty use of subtle facial expressions throughout the movie. Aftab didn't really stick out, but then again, his role was the most standard of all of them, and was also severely limited in the number of comic lines he spoke.

All in All, the movie was highly enjoyable, so long as you don't focus on the few flaws. Of course, the movie isn't perfect, there are many things that could have been done better, cinematography and editing-wise that would have improved the movie, but it still served as a great Time pass, at the least. In conclusion, A Unique movie with a not so unique story.
