The enigma of Talaash – Reema Kagti’s next with Aamir Khan

Talaash trailer!

Talaash "holographic" "moving" ??  poster:

Notice the "Answer lies within" - this squarely hints at a psychological drama!

Everything about this film is shrouded in smoke – Dhuaan was a very apt early rumored title that has now been changed to Talaash. Written by Reema Kagti (director of Excel Entertainment’s Honeymoon Travels) and Zoya Akhtar (writer and director of Luck by Chance and Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara), the film boasts of an interesting cast with Aamir Khan and Kareena Kapoor (last seen in 3 Idiots) but also includes Rani Mukherjee. Rani and Aamir were last seen together in Mangal Pandey years ago!
So what to we know about Talaash? The earlier Dhuaan suggests events clouded in mystery, fog. Aamir plays a cop named Surjan Singh Sekhawat and Kareena is called Sunaina, and is allegedly a sex-worker (as per Mid-Day). In a recent interview with Verve magazine this is what we learnt:
….. Kagti has been refining her suspense drama about a police investigation in Mumbai with Aamir Khan, Kareena Kapoor and Rani Mukerji as the cast. Slated for a 2012 release, the word on the street is that the real star of the film is its script.
“Zoya (Akhtar) and I thought of the story and co-wrote it. We do a lot of writing together. We’re also best friends so it’s fun and there’s a huge comfort factor. All our creative arguments get resolved by who can bang her laptop harder on the other one’s head,” she says, grinning wickedly.
So is she intimidated to be directing an institution like Aamir Khan? “I’m not fazed at all, just extremely grateful to Aamir and the producers for this opportunity to make a film in a really nice way. Aamir has got a lot of foresight and is very interested in the well-being of the project. I really appreciate that and don’t see that as interference. Having said that, even if the situation gets challenging, I like challenges.”
There was to be an underwater shot in Mumbai but as per Wikipedia it was moved to an undisclosed water studio in London:

  1. It was Aamir who made Delhi Belly, I sure am overwehlmed with the message the movie gave(pun intended). Message in the remake of Momento, I mean Gajni, sorry can't find any. Movies like Mela is an insult to the intelligence of the bollywood movie fans. mangal pandey was another failed attempt to claim oscars. 3 Idiots was a successful attemt of creaming the most successful novel by an Indian author-5 point someone. Peepli live was exaggerated to the level of frustration, you have to agree it was a work of pure fiction. Agreed TZP was class apart, but we have to agree no one makes movie to educate the audience, neither we watch any movie to get educated or to get a wonderful message. Entertainment is all that we look for and it is what they serve us.

  2. I've surfed the net more than three hours today, and your blog was the coolest of all. Thanks a lot, it is really useful to me

  3. Aamir has a Great magic to hit the film..
