Tahaan Bollywood Movie Review

An interesting tale, the story begins on the backdrop of the beautiful Kashmir valley where a young boy Tahaan (Purav) lives with his grandpa (Victor), mother Haba (Sarika), elder sister Zoya (Sana Sheikh) and his pet donkey Birbal. Tahaan's father has been missing since three years but the family lives on the only hope that he would return someday. Meanwhile, things take a difficult turn when Tahaan's grandfather passes away and the family runs into debts. The tough money lender Kuka Saab (Rahul Khanna) arrives on the scene and takes away all the belongings and Tahaan gets disturbed when his long standing companion Birbal is taken away too. He takes it upon himself to get Birbal back home and discovers in the process that it has been sold to one Subhan (Anupam Kher) across the mountains. Tahaan is disturbed but then he manages to get hold of Subhan and tells him about Birbal, though the old man finds the kid to be repulsive, later he starts liking him. Tahaan is on his way back to home when he meets Idrees (Ankush) who influences Tahaan that he can get Birbal back provided he carries a grenade and a package across the border along with him. Tahaan immediately agrees for it and accompanies Subhan also for the journey with Birbal holding the package. What happens from there forms the rest of the story.

Tahaan Hindi Cinema Review

The director has come out with an interesting subject and his presentation was also perfect but then the narrative seemed to lack depth. The dialogues were alright, music was about average, editing was numb, script was alright but the screenplay was bad. Cinematography gets full marks while the other departments were nominal in their contributions. Anupam Kher has come up with a top notch performance and equally good was Sarika but then experts like Rahul Bose and Victor Banerjee did not have much scope, even Rahul Khanna had the same result. The real show stealer and life for the film was the young Purav who is another excellent find. His performance was remarkable. The others did their bit but not very impressive.

Tahaan Filem Review

The film takes off on a very serene mode and given its plot, it had to be something filled with a tight and gripping screenplay. While the first half was more on the softer side with few bumpy events it is the second half that takes you to a different world and the climax is definitely a worth watching treat. Commercially, the film will not be able to score much marks given its genre but then it is a hot favorite for the film festival circuit.

Bharatstudent Verdict : Film festival material, not for the regular audience...
