Tashan - Movie Reviews

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

Or love it for the same.

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?

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.

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.
Now Running
Tashan was meant to be an over the top film, I understand this. I have no problems with that because over the top films are fine in my opinion, as long as they provide solid entertainment. But Tashan is way too over the top even for an over the top film.
