Movie Talk: Talaash: How about an alternate ending?


Whether you have watched Talaash or are going to do so, consider this:

  • That if the story were to be told from the point of view of Rosy (Kareena Kapoor), the impact would be far more devastating. 
  • That the additional underwater rescue scene almost kills it. The scene demonstrates how much things left unsaid in comparison to a scene stretched beyond measure can make a film of the suspense genre either great or good. 
  • The additional mitigating factor is the final recapping of various scenes we have already seen. This school textbook revision for a forgetful target audience reduces the film's wallop and chances of repeat viewing.  
  • An alternate ending: The police vehicle taillights disappear into the water. THE END.
