Movie Review: Tashan

After hearing so many negative ratings on this film, I thought to myself can it really be that bad? After all its a Yash Raj film starring mega stars Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Anil Kapoor. Even if the story is weak, can’t these four join together and deliver perfomances that save the movie?

Unfortunately the answer is NO. There is way too much stupidity in the movie. Everything is predictable. The fight scenes are not believable. And worst of all, there is no story.

Exclusive Tashan Wallpapers

What’s Your Tashan? To be honest, I don’t know what ‘Tashan’ means, but I searched the net and found out that it means ‘style’. If I’m wrong, please leave the correct meaning in the comment box below. By the way, check these exclusive posters/wallpapers of Tashan. All three, Akshay Kumar, Kareena Kapoor and Saif Ali Khan, are looking absolutely stunning. I simply can’t wait for April 25(movie’s release date).

Music Review: Tashan

Tashan

Directed by: Vijay Krishna Acharya
Produced by: Aditya Chopra, Yash Chopra
Music by: Vishal-Shekhar
Starring: Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan, Kareena Kapoor, Anil Kapoor

I would start off by saying how big the expectations are from this film and its music, but I won’t. Because Yash Raj were once the best banner when it came to quality music. But now with every passing movie their standards fall lower and lower. With Tashan, the slope continues downward. Sad thing is that putting together such a great cast isn’t easy. And when they do come together they deserve at the very least a memorable soundtrack and Tashan is anything but memorable!

  • Dil Haara – Sukhwinder Singh is back after his mega successful Dard e Disco. Hard to see this song being half as popular as the former. The combo of the guitar and the chorus yelling oh ho do give the song a promising beginning, but the promises are broken as soon as Sukhwinder starts singing. The song may grow on you, but its hardly something you would expect as the opening song in a movie with such great expectations. Rating: ★★★☆☆
  • Chhaliya (Sunidhi Chauhan, Piyush Mishra) – The music of this song is almost identical to Na Pucho from Cash. Why? Are Vishal Shekhar running out of tunes? Despite the song being composed from recycled music, it is catchy (to some extent) and Sunidhi’s singing is great. And also considering the fact that Kareena is supposed to be in a swimsuit in this song, this one just might become popular… Rating: ★★★☆☆
  • Dil Dance Maare (Sukhwinder Singh, Udit Narayan, and Sunidhi Chauhan) – Long time since we have heard from Udit Narayan, who sounds as good as ever in this tapori track. The crazy lyrics are written by Vishal himself. They will not be accepted by all but if you can tolerate them the music is pretty upbeat and catchy. This song, as wacky as it is, has a chance of being the hit of the album. As hard as it is to say this, this one is my favorite of the album! Rating: ★★★½☆
  • Falak Tak (Udit Narayan, Mahalaxmi Iyer) – After all the loudness, the album tries to take a melodious and romantic turn. I tried hard to like this song but it’s just missing something. Not entirely bad but falls short of expectations. I don’t want to sound redundant but keep in mind Yash Raj films are the proud owners of many of the greatest love duets ever! This one however will not even come close. Rating: ★★½☆☆
  • Tashan Mein (Vishal, Saleem) – Here we have the worst song of the album and possibly the year. This song will be liked by people who enjoy headaches. Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

Each of the main characters gets a 10 second dialogue in the form of “Pooja Ka Tashan,” “Jimmy Ka Tashan”, “Bachchan Pande Ka Tashan” and “Bhaiyyaji Ka Tashan”. They give a insight into the character but were better left in the movie only.

Overall Rating: ★★½☆☆

None of the songs are entirely bad (except the title song), but neither are any of them great. We expected A LOT more from a film that is supposed to be the biggest of 2008. But as it turns out the music is strictly average and nothing more. Hopefully the movie will be better than the music is…especially considering the all-star cast.

Saif and Kareena together on the streets of Mumbai

Yash Raj Films Tashan is still in the making but yet it seems to be making a buzz for number reasons. One reason is that Anil Kapoor, Akshay Kumar, Saif Ali Khan and Kareena Kapoor will share the screen space for the first time together. In fact, Akshay and Anil Kapoor will be seen in a Yash Raj film after a very long time. Second is the makeover that all these actors have done for this film. Third is of course the unusual title ‘Tashan’.
