Review of Tashan.
Tashan is the other multi-starrer film released this year, where the viewers had a lot of expectation. The actors and actresses who had performed in the film include Kareena Kapoor, Anil Kapoor, Saif Ali Khan and Akshay Kumar. There were other actors and actresses as well who contributed in the film.
Anil Kapoor played the role of big mafia cum villain who is called bhaiyaji. He used broken English and wrong English thereby creating a humorous impact in the same way in which Javed Jaffery amused the viewers in Salaam Namaste. Anil Kapoor had always been elegant in aggressive roles and comedy roles, so the performance in this film was also satisfactory.
Akshay Kumar worked as the recovery agent under Anil Kapoor, with the name Bacchan Pandey. He had been send by Anil Kapoor to recover the money that had been borrowed by Kareena Kapoor.
Kareena Kapoor travelled from one part of the world to the other and she was not in a position to repay the loan that had been borrowed. She had been accompanied by Saif Ali Khan who had been an NRI, who also got involved in the transaction due to the affection towards Kareena.
The only twist in the story lied in the fact that Akshay who had been send by Anil Kapoor to collect the dues from Kareena entered into an affair with Kareena Kapoor and the other part of the mission got delayed due to that. The film directed by Vijay Krishna Acharya had been entertaining for the crowds.
Saif Alik Khan and Akshay Kumar were sublime in their style-oriented presentation. Kareena Kapoor also complimented them with her stylish performance. The music was satisfactory.
Although Tashan had not created an extraordinary impact in the mind of viewers and neither had novelty to the extent of Race which had been released this year, the film is expected to do well with its lovely locations and strong performance of stars.
