Taish starts off well especially the introduction of characters. The first half has its share of some funny and dramatic sequences. The fight sequence in the washroom is exhilarating and the sequences that follow are very engrossing. The intermission point is shocking. One expects fireworks in the second half but sadly, this is where the film drops. It becomes too long and also very unconvincing. Also, a few subplots are not strong enough. Bejoy Nambiar with his directorial brilliance and beautiful use of colours does try to salvage the film. But it succeeds only to an extent. Speaking of performances, Jim Sarbh is efficient in the part of a non-villainous part, a rarity in his career! Harshvardhan Rane is brilliant as the menacing gangster-cum-lover. Pulkit Samrat is a surprise; you have never seen him in such an avatar. The stunning Kriti Kharbanda is impressive. Zoa Morani has a great screen presence. Melissa Raju Thomas (Simmi) is promising. Sanjeeda Shaikh is okay; one wishes her character had more to do. Abhimanyu Singh is too good in a short role. Ankur Rathee, Saurabh Sachdeva (Sukhi), Viraf Patel and others are fine. All in all, Taish is an average fare!
My rating – ** ½ out of 5!
