Talaash: The Hunt Is Ridiculous...
30 August 2009 | by Peter_YoungSee all my reviews

An action-packed movie, I give the film two stars for Akshay Kumar's talent in playing roles of this sort. This film is dreadful, boring and definitely not worth your time, but Akshay always stands out in the action scenes and tries to be as sincere as the script allows him (it of course does not, but anyway). Other than that - there's just nothing good in this film. A story which had been told a zillion times in the past. His sister is kidnapped, subsequently his mother loses her mind, he wants to find his sister to recover his mother's sanity (huh!). It also has a Kareena Kapoor, who gets forgotten before the nightmarish hunt ends, it has a Pooja Batra (there's no reason to say anything about her is there?), and it has a Raakhee, a great actress who gets typecast as the mother whose tragedy makes her crazy. The scenes are formed with one old cliché after the other. Skip this one - it's a good advice.
