Namrata Joshi Outlook Talaash is two different films rolled into one... While the latter is a very affecting and compelling track, the former leaves one very dissatisfied. Rated: 3/4 May 5, 2015 Full Review Shubhra Gupta The Indian Express Talaash starts out as a smart, well-written noir-ish thriller... Pity about the second half. Rated: 2.5/5 May 5, 2015 Full Review Anil Sinanan Time Out Performances are uniformly impressive, with Khan proving again that he is the finest actor of his generation. Rated: 4/5 May 5, 2015 Full Review J Hurtado ScreenAnarchy Talaash presents a high standard for the best of what India can do. Nov 6, 2017 Full Review Devesh Sharma Filmfare The film hooks you from first shot onwards and refuses to let go. The suspense is maintained throughout. There are enough red herrings to keep a convention of Agatha Christie fans happy. May 5, 2015 Full Review Sudhish Kamath The Hindu The cast makes this work as an unusual dysfunctional relationship drama. May 5, 2015 Full Review Read all reviews

Luis M. D This is a very potent and engrossing psychological crime thriller intertwined with a personal drama. The murder plot has all the elements of a neo-noir police story while the drama combines psychological and supernatural elements in equal parts. But the way the supernatural enters the main plot is so smart and intelligent that the viewer is allowed multiple readings from the purely fantastical perspective to a more psychological or scientific explanation such as feeling of guilt, lack of sleep, job pressure or insecurity. The ending is simply superb. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 11/25/23 Full Review GINA G Let me tell you something, I have enjoyed this movie more than any Hollywood critically acclaimed movie that wins a stupid oscar. This movie had everything, I cried, I was excited and thrilled, it had mystery, it gad paranormal stuff. It was incredibly great, not good, great. I am stunned at how great indian movies, are. I highly recommend this movie. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 08/14/23 Full Review Rosana B Um drama-suspense-policial que amamos, entroncado, mistérios, com um bom desfecho, a Índia manda bem nessas produções, sou suspeita, porque amo Bollywood, atrelada a um drama familiar, virando fã do Aamir Khan… Lindo suspense, com uma dose fantasmagórica, que ilustra e abrilhanta ainda mais esse policial investigativo cativante e dramático, lindo, tensão, perseguição, mistério, encantador, excelente… Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/06/22 Full Review Audience Member One of the best Indian films I have ever watched. Every scene was absolutely captivating and not a second boring. It was a well-executed movie and great performances by all the actors especially the main actor. In the end, it was a fantastic twist with some tear-jerker scenes. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Audience Member Pretty good. Though I knew the major twist, still it was an absorbing watch. Acting was brilliant, so is direction. It has an interesting script, starts off like a mystery film then various layers are added. At one point it gives off mild Taxi Driver vibe too! Overall, it's a good experience. Definitely worth watching. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/16/23 Full Review Thanayod L Beautiful story, interesting narrative, perfect cast, and unforgettable characters, especially, a poor prostitute. The ending lies above all expectations. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/24/21 Full Review Read all reviews
