After helming – in various guises – a string of small, critically acclaimed motion pictures as part of his reinvention, Aamir Khan returns to the silver screen in the New Year in a form familiar to fans of his pre-Lagaan days. Talaash – the trailer for which was released this week – sees Aamir join forced with the hottest property in Bollywood at the moment – Kareena Kapoor – and an actress who laid claim to that title not many years ago but is in need of a bit of a reinvention herself; Rani Mukherjee.
The film has been written and directed by Reema Kagti who was rave reviews for her debut ‘Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd’ back in 2007. Talaash is described as a psychological thriller with Aamir playing a troubled cop and at first glance the actor/producer/Bollywood darling’s time as the industry’s commercial and critical king seems set to continue; proper Bollywood joie de vivre coupled with a not-implausible narrative and well rounded characters.
