All style no substance, a hollowed tashan that is. Bollywood has been lately trying to get a hit out of exotic locations, bikini scenes, toned bodies, and brainless comedies. While these have been thriving, but the audiences can't be taken for granted for long. And that makes Tashan the glamorous film
with no brainer script fail.
Jimmy Cliff (Saif Ali Khan) teaches English in a call centre. Pooja Singh (Kareena Kapoor) approaches her for private tuitions. Already felled for her, he
readily agrees. She later tells her that its her boss Bhaiji (Anil Kapoor) who wants to learn English. Follows some funny dialogues and Bhaijii's dialect.
Kareena tells Saifu that he is working for Bhaiijii's for paying his dad's debt and connives him to steal his trunk full of money. The hero as usual suceeds but learns that Bhaiji's is morbid gangster killing people. About to tell this to Kareena, comes a new twist. He is been double crossed by her.
Now he runs for his life.
All this banal stuff, fortunately comes the entry of Bachchan Pandey (Akshay kumar). The guy with true tashan, the gangster in the film is hired by Bhaiji to catch Jimmy. He comes across Jimmy and both decides to catch Pooja to get the money back. Pooja is in Haridwar and a ploy with Saif to remove Akshay from the picture. But another hindi film twist, Pooja learns that Bachchan and she are childhood sweethearts.
Enough, the only thing that keeps driving you to see the film till now is Akshay Kumar with a perfect comic timing. He tries to save the film but a sinking ship can't be amended. Kareena comes out with a very seductive look, her size zero is worth watching. Anil's English patois is amusing at times.
Overall, the film deeply lacks in a script, and direction. It doesn't bring out anything new, different, interesting to offer. The movie is largely boring. Can watch it once for Akshay, Kareena's gorgeous looks and some good cinematography.view less
