8 X 10 Tasveer Bollywood Movie Review

A good tale gone bad, the story is set on the backdrop of Canada where Jai (Akshay) is working as a forest ranger. He has this unique ability to look into the future and all he needs is a photograph of the person or location. However, Jai is keen on unraveling the mystery behind the death of his father Jatin Puri (Benjamin) and to add to his beliefs, even the detective (Javed) vouches the same. Jai gets hold of the photograph that has the four people in it including his father just before he died. From then on starts Jai's journey in locating the killer and the motive. In this process, he has to let go off few things. Is he successful in finding the killer or not forms the rest of the story.

8 X 10 Tasveer Hindi Cinema Review

The director has come up with a very interesting storyline but then he fell flat on the narrative aspect. The saving grace of the film has been the presentation. The script was shallow and the screenplay was pathetic. Dialogues were just okay. The background score was excellent but there was nothing from the songs department. Full marks to the cinematography department, it was simply remarkable. Editing was good at start but goofed up big time later. Costumes were apt, the art department also did a neat job. Coming to the cast, Akshay has come up with a different role and has done justice, Ayesha was sweet and made her presence felt, Sharmila was gracious, Benjamin was neat, Anant Mahadevan was alright, Javed Jaffrey provided few lighter moments with his antics. Girish Karnad was apt. The others came and went.

8 X 10 Tasveer Filem Review

The film could have been a super success but then the fault goes to the writer and director Nagesh for making a mess out of it in the last twenty five minutes. While the first half takes off with an interesting momentum and setting expectations for the second half, one cannot help getting frustrated and say if the director has left his brains at home. The climax was a major disaster and that was the key reason for the movie turning out to be a disappointment. The film will turn out to be a dud at the box office. That's for sure.
