Directed by Reema Kagti, this is not your average traditional Bollywood film. There are no lavish song and dance numbers here, no colorful dresses to feast your eyes upon, instead Talaash is an Indian neo-noir mystery thriller which takes place in a visually dirty and corrupt Mumbai. The film starts out with the mysterious death of Armaan Kapoor, a famous Bollywood actor. Inspector Sing (played by Aamir Khan, who also produces the film), is in charge of the case, which takes him down a road of prostitution, blackmail and death. The case becomes a life altering experience for Inspector Sing, as his personal life becomes intertwined with the investigation.

Talaash is a seductive and beautifully crafted film that uses it’s concept of a mysterious death to construct detailed world filled with grief, greed and human weakness. Featuring rich cinematography, vibrant music an engaging story and strong believable characters, it’s a film that is unpredictable in its predictability.
