Tashan is truly the biggest and most awaited project of the season.

Or love it for the same.
Sukanya Verma, Rediff 
Tashan is the cinematic equivalent of being caught in a dark alley and bludgeoned. The ear-splitting background score amplifies the visual and narrative mayhem. When I walked out of the theater, I felt like I had aged. Only the fittest will survive this o

But doesn't Tashan really mean attitude?
Raja Sen, Rediff 
Tashan, meaning style, is the most fitting adjective to pin Vijay Krishna Acharya’s debut film with.

Doc: Mister.. excuse me.. mister.. wake up.. why have you fainted? (yelling out to nurse and compounder) Quick, call the ambulance!

But if you aren't looking for the latter, Tashan is all-revelry.
Sukanya Verma, Rediff 
Hindi movies have undergone a sea change in terms of content.

I was smart enough to shut off my brain before watching the movie and ended up laughing a few times intentionally and unintentionally. The absurd film begins with a (cool) call center executive/English professor, Jimmy Cliff (Saif Ali Khan), who instantan

I don't think too much of the film but have to say I rather liked its spirit its attitude- or it's Tashan if you please. This is refreshingly unpretentious filmmaking from Vijay Krishna Acharya- eccentric outrageous and zanily over-the-top.
