A giant leap for Indian Cinema !
30 November 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

It all started with the late night glitz, the charisma and the intriguing layers from the red-light area of Mumbai with the song "Muskanein Jhooti Hain" being played in the background, giving a clear indication that not all that glitters is gold. All the glamor and lustrous life is but a disguise and not real.

Writing and making thrillers in not very easy, but not often do you see Aamir Khan signing a mediocre script that says nothing. Kareena looks absolutely stunning and arousing with her knee high skirts, the backless dresses and sheer lewdness in her gestures. Amazing ! Ram Sampath, take a bow. The music blends with the screenplay so smoothly, and you never feel one overpowering the other. And the Faisal from GOW,(Nawazuddin Siddique) what an artist he is. Its not easy to share screen space with someone like Kareena and Aamir, but this man has done complete justice to his character, keeping you engaged every time.

If you are a serious cinema lover, you mustn't miss it. Aamir Khan here has created a classic. I don't care about the box office collections. Its a 9/10 for me ! I am going again .

P.S. The plot is completely unpredictable, I am sure it is going to send chills down your spine at times .

Talaash, The answer lies within .
