One of the finest movies Made till Date ! Simple yet so grand :)
3 November 2009 | by nikil185See all my reviews

I remember watching taal when i was kid , And Aishwarya Rai was everywhere owin to her two hit Movies - Hum dil de chuke sanam and Taal .

Taal Is all in all a Pure musical !! Its a journey of a girl With Music Playin a Important role in the backdrop hence the name Taal.

The movie starts with AISHWARYA Rai (Mansi) a beautiful small town girl with great voice who meets AKSHAYE KHANA (Manav) a Rich down to earth guy . Now the same old Status problem arises and Mansi and Manav's Parents are logger heads and have a heated Fight which results the Couple SplttinG . Mansi Is approached to be a lead singer by A Leading music Composer ANIL KAPOOR (Vikrant) who also owns a Music company . Mansi becomes a overnight star , Manav Tries convincing Mansi all this time to come back to her . Now Vikrant proposes Mansi and Mansi agrees to marry him But Somewhere down her heart even she knows she loves Manav and isn't over him . Now What does Manasi Do ?? Will She Marry Vikrant and Kill her love for MANAV OR Will she Get back to Manav is the basic plot of the movie ? This movie has been made amazingly well it is possibly Subash Ghai's Best Work . The music by A.R REHMAN is the best part of the Movie . Aishwarya Steals the show completely its her movie all the way , Akshay khanna is great Too , Anil kapoor is funny and goofy and plays his part exceedingly well.

Taal is a simple story which looks so pure on the screen and even the cinematography Is not over the top grand its just about perfect .

A must watch for People who think Bollywood is all about stupid Dance - Around - The - Three Flick .
