Ta Ra Rum Pum

Bollywood 29/05/2007

“The future is not promised to any of us… the past is over for all of us.” This is the shortest possible description of the movie.

Ta Ra Rum Pum sounds Disney and full of fun and pun. But no coin has just one side. Tears and sadness are like stalkers and how to over come this dark side of life is the crux of the story. It is the tale of human characterization and will power and how it eventually succeeds.

Princess Priya (Angelina Idnani) narrates to us the story.

Rajveer Singh (Saif Ali Khan), a school drop out, is a pit-crew worker in a racing team with a passion for driving is identified by a team manager, Harry (Jaaved Jaaferi). The same day he out of the blue meets a music student, daughter of a business magnet, Radhika (Rani Mukerji), who he falls for instantly.

He is branded for the ‘Speeding Saddles’ ? a failing race team and transforms from Rajveer Singh to “RV” ? the race car driver. While his racing career takes off instantly, his love life also blossoms after a brief romance. A few months later, he is both a happily married man and one of the country’s best racers. Fatherhood and greater success both follow and soon he is the Number 1 race car driver in the USA, as well as the proud father of two gifted kids ? Priya alias Princess (Angelina Idnani) and Ranveer alias Champ (Ali Haji).

Life takes a twist in their happy life when RV gets hospitalized for a few months after a bad racing accident. When he attempts to make a comeback, the accident haunts him. He looses his job, fame, money, and house and is led back to the life of Rajveer. However, RV and Radhika choose not to tell their children the truth and construct a skillful pretense of a reality show where they have to live a poor life in order to win a fabulous yet mythical grand prize.

RV and Radhika struggle to keep the false tale of reality show going and keep their children happy, using a blend of fantasy and cheerfulness to pull through in the face of hardship. Then RV meets his biggest challenge, a challenge of life or death. Will he overcome his fear and become the Best Car Racer of the world? Will he win the challenge?

The plot well woven and the story best said Director Siddharth Anand has done a splendid job.
He has left no air of mistake and handled the sequence remarkably well. Skillfully blended the emotions and chosen the right track and time to display. The background music is fantastic through out the movie, especially during the race car sequence. Cinematography is stylish and commendable. Dialogues natural and well said.

Acting:
Casting is one of the film’s strengths. Noone could suit the role other than Saif as the racing champion RV. Saif’s style is perfect for this role; he makes RV the bold man and likable at the same time. And, beneath it all, there beats the heart of a caring man. His striking performance is sure to sky-rocket his fan-following amongst the youngsters.

Likewise, Rani’s considerate personality infuses Radhika with buoyancy. Rani takes a giant leap as an actor, making you realize that she is amongst the finest actresses of her generation. Not only has Rani looked gorgeous, even her performance is flawless.

Angelina Idnani and Ali Haji, the child stars of the movie have given remarkable performance. Angelina as the elder sister manages excellently well to speak out the mature thoughts with expressions to her best. Ali is no less competitive. He succeeds in putting across his champ look. The kids have put across a commendable performance.

Jaaved Jaaferi a deft entertainer with excellent comic timing skills tickles your ribs now and then.
He carries away his character with ease and style.
