Movie: Tashan
Cast: Akshay, Kareena, Anil Kapoor, Saif

Are the audiences becoming intelligent, or the script writers are unwilling to think out of the tested formula? This is what one asks after watching Tashan.
The plot goes like this. Kareena uses Saif, a call centre employee, who happens to teach English for Don Anil Kapoor, to steal his money. Anil calls Akshay, a local gunda, to get back the money and finish them. Akshay is the only saving grace in the movie which is nothing more than an old wine in a new bottle. Akshay manages to make you laugh and enjoy throughout. He could have avoided the gravity and bullets defying stunts. Saif has nothing much to do and doesn't make use of the few chances he gets. Except skin show, Kareena has nothing else to offer. Anil kapoor tries to make us laugh but ends up making fool of him. You can't avoid noticing similarities between Tashan and Dhoom-2 , which again was a forgettable movie. Cinematography hurts your eyes often; though songs and the locations have been captured well. Music and choreography disappoints you more so because of poor song placement. Background score is again a let down.
Continuity and importance for details takes the back seat in Tashan. For instance, in one scene, Akshay takes in a bullet on his arms next scene he doesn't have any stains. Yash Raj can surely make better quality and more intelligent movies.
If you are an Akshay fan, or a person who goes by the star cast to watch a movie, Tashan is a must watch.
Verdict: 2 stars(each for Akshay and Kareena's figure)
