Talaash is not a universal film like Dhoom 3 – Aamir Khan

Talking to the press on Tuesday, to celebrate the success of his latest release Talaash, Aamir Khan said the film had limited appeal unlike his next release Dhoom 3.

The supernatural element in Talaash

  • Aamir: Talaash’ is not a universal film. There is a supernatural element in this film and it was a risky film to make. Around 80 to 90 per cent of the audience liked the film.

Will the film get repeat audience?

  • I don’t think that a suspense drama does not have any repeat value. In fact, the audience is liking the film more when they are watching it for the second or third time. The film has not got a 100 percent positive response as many people may not like the supernatural element, but ‘Talaash’ has repeat value.

Talaash is not a universal film like Dhoom 3

  • Dhoom 3 is a highly mainstream film which everyone will enjoy. It has a very universal appeal which Talaash lacked. Even kids will like Dhoom 3. But Talaash has got a different audience. But I am glad that the film has opened so well and is doing good business at the box office. What made me really happy was the emotion that I went through while shooting for the film, even the audience went through the same emotion while watching it.

Cant compare Talaash to Khiladi 786!

  • Talaash is more realistic and sensitive than a masala film like Khiladi 786 or Singham. The film showcases strong inner battles within characters and deals with their demons. It cannot be compared to mainstream films. Those films are out-n-out masala movies, which have been successful in the past and will continue to do big business.


  • Talaash will run at the multiplexes the next two weeks until Dabangg 2 so it should cross the 100 cr mark as classes are really liking the film. K786 will do very well in mass belts for sure but I have doubts about whether it can sustain itself in the multiplexes so Talaash will benefit from this.

  • @ sahir you know one thing…

    talaash will cross 100 crore despite being of a offbeat genre..

  • Bechara Aamir. Talaash flopped and he knows that Dhoom 3 will be big hit because of the brand ‘DHOOM’ , not because of him.

  • hello Anti Aamir’s first thing is that Barfi was not a suspense movie so its has more reach and Appeal than Talaash and its also have 2 open weeks while Talaash has not and inspite of having this zonar movie he get opening weekend of around 47-48 crore rs which is big achievement and do u have any brain u r saying that Aamir don’t have fan following he is the one who create 100 and 200 cr club and both movies get highest opening when they released tell me any other movie in 2009 where salman and Akshay having 4-5 movies each but not get opening like Ghajini insite of being released in Festive season Blue on Diwali and wanted on EID, Aamir have guts to make different kind of movies while others lacks only two actor having guts like Aamir for experimental Hritik and Ranbeer Kapoor while other lacks
    look at Akshay And Salman making same kinda movies again Action and mass apeeal, while i liked ETT and Dabangg but Akshay gave only one good movies which u cant say it’s Akshay because it’s Paresh rawal Movide OMG forget abt that he making nonsense movies like Housefull, housefull2 and Khiladi 786 while srk is only busy to get his foot stronger in domestic bozoffice and failed every time his movies gets big opening but not sustained well and for abt DON 2 its is sequel so having more Apeeal + action zoner so u can’t compare this also to Talaash
    ans I have seen Talaash it is very good movie only made for class and inteleeigent audience and for someone who like different kind of cinema.

  • Not one song of khiladi 786 is original, each one of them is a cheap copy of some foreign song, if that is not enough then the movie also has breaking the jeep with one leg scene,etc. so much for a good movie, khiladi 786 is a disgrace
