Wah Taj (2016) Movie Review & Rating

Ajit Sinha’s Hindi drama film Wah Taj revolves around the character of Tukaram Raosaheb Marathe (played by Shreyas Talpade) who lands on Taj Mahal one day and claims that it is built on the land which belongs to his ancestors and wants the land back to start farming on it. Such demand by Tukaram triggers several mind games and dirty, cold wars among politicians and the cops. The storyline might sound intriguing, but somewhere it couldn’t come up with a perfect depiction of the entire scenario. Shreyas Talpade has quite a lot of fan following and has delivered his terrific acting prowess in the movie Iqbal. However, he could not deliver the same amount of intensity through his acting skills in Wah Taj and failed to bring in the subject of satire comedy in the movie. Even Manjari Phadnis was nothing extraordinary in the film.

Nevertheless, Wah Taj tried its utmost to make the viewers intrigued towards the movie in the initial parts but failed to continue with the same intensity in the later parts. The characters could not stand out in their own rights as equal importance was not given to any of them. Therefore, Wah Taj could not interest the viewers with its poor portrayal of each and every role. Ajit Sinha wanted to depict a serious issue with some addition of laughter and amusement to it but wasn’t successful in establishing the scenes with such portrayal.
