Ahmed M It wasn't as bad as I thought, the story wasn't that great but the movie was a bit funny and some of the songs weren't that bad either. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 05/28/16 Full Review Audience Member Paglu (Riteish), Amu (Ayesha) & Abhi (Aftab) live the lives of each other. They drink, eat & sleep together. Sleep? Don't take it otherwise though. But they are certainly an integral part of each others lives. Amu is a girl amongst the two guys, though Paglu & Abhi don't treat her like one. Paglu is the one who makes her realize about her feelings and helps her get her love. And Abhi is the rich, kind and classy guy who falls in love every time he meets a weird girl. Life however takes a serious fun turn when one of them falls in love with the other. And the one is sadly in love with some one else all together. E Niwas earlier gave us "Love Ke Liye Kuch Bhi Karega", & "De Taali" is not as good as compared it. "De Taali" fails in almost every aspect. Neither it makes you laugh (apart from a single moment), nor does it has some interesting story & not even some wicked lines for the characters of the movie. The movie just goes on & ends up suddenly. The only saving grace is Riteish, yes, he is impressive. Ayesha looks fine, but nothing brilliant with her performance. Aftab, he has nothing to do in the movie. Rimi Sen was the second & final impressive factor of the movie. She looked fine, as well as she acted well. The music of the movie is just average, perhaps two songs are good, "Maari Teetri" & "De Taali" (Title song in the end of the movie). Rest of the songs are below average. Also the songs (all of them) do play a role as an unwanted guest. Nothing much in the movie. Below average Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/13/23 Full Review Audience Member loved some of the funny scenes~ Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/15/23 Full Review Audience Member Day : Thursday Date: 22 Jan 2009 Time: 9.30 pm With: Noone On : PC Some funny lines but crap story. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Music-wise, acting-wise and plot-wise... this movie can only be described as mediocre. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/15/23 Full Review Audience Member It amazes me as to how a man who once upon a time directed Shool can now come up with something as crass and mediocre as De Taali. Downright ugly this movie amazed me with the mediocrity that it posessed. Riteish Deshmukh finally has started looking repetitive and hs comic acts were also nt enough to save the movie from becoming a disaster. I felt like hitting Rimi Sen when i read in an interview that the character she portrays in De Taali has negative shades in it and that the audience wil be taken by surprise at what she has accomplished in this movie. If whimpering and whining in a movie is called shades of gray then god save bollywood. UGLY MOVIE. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
