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.
