Next day, enter Inspector Surjan Singh Sekhawat, who is the investigating officer. A simultaneous plot reveals that he and his wife are coping with some personal loss of losing their only child, Karan. They have moved to their new home in Mumbai, where, his wife, Roshni is finishing with the unpacking. The doorbell rings, and she find out that it is an elderly lady, who introduces herself as Franny. She asks for some tea, and while Roshni is away into the kitchen, she rummages through the yet unpacked boxes, and finds a family photograph, where she addresses the dead child by his name, and seems happy. Meanwhile, Surjan encounters a sex worker named Rosie, who can shed some light upon the entire mystery. Written by debasree

Talaash is definitely good but not awesome..
30 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Believe it or not there have been many movies of Suspense genre in last few years which are better or at least equal to it; to quote a few of them are- HIDE AND SEEK, 404- error not found, KAHAANI and many more! But all of them lack in the star power of Aamir Khan and that's the reason that most of them did not caught the attention of Masses!

Talaash is a different style mystery which unfolds well in a decent way, with a gripping story and brilliant performances! Everyone delivers his best here, from Aamir to Kareena to Rani and even the supporting cast! Story is fresh, smart and keeps you hooked up till the end! Kagati's Direction is good too! Music is decent, melodious and suits the mood of the movie; and appears to be an integral part of it! Everything else from setting to cinematography is fine!

But inspite of all these the movie definitely does not live upto the expectations and hype created ! It shows that still we have miles to go!

As the Aamir requested not to reveal the suspense and it's very essential for any mystery movie (Remember the end of the movie "DHUND" which states- "This is the end but please do not tell anybody!"). So I will not talk about it, however I would quote a statement of KAREENA given in an interview that:- "TALAASH MINUS KAREENA IS NOTHING .....!!!"

Finally I would like to say that Talaash does pass the litmus test but Not With Distinction, It is definitely Good but not awesome!!! RATING- 7/10 !
