Tomorrow, Friday 30 November, see the release of Aamir Khan's eagerly anticipate new movie, Talaash: Answer lie Within. The film, which also star-listers Rani Mukherjee and newly-wed Kareena Kapoor, see return of suspense drama to Bollywood. This genre is not only rarity in studios but also rarely commercially successful. In one of the world's most prolific film industries, films that do the best business at the box office tend to be all-singing, all-dancing romances, with plenty of glamorous foreign locations to boot. While Talaash features song, dance and deep emotion, it is being billed as the first suspense Hindi-language drama for almost 20 years. Reema Kagti, film's director, is a self-confess suspense film buff. After the release of her critically acclaim directorial debut, Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd in 2007, Kagti failed to find another script which grabbed her attention, so she decided to create her own. She co-write screenplay for Talaash with close friend Zoya Akhtar-daughter of lyricist Javed Akhtar, who was once part of legendary Bollywood scriptwriting duo with Salim-Javed, and conceive such iconic films as Sholay, Deewar and Don. Kagti explains that the female duo wanted to explore darker emotions in Talaash, since they both felt these were often neglected by Indian films. She say: with films about to hit the big screen, audiences are being kept in suspense. Details about the plot remain a closely-guard secret, although a number of song teasers have been made available on YouTube, offering tantalising glimpses of the cast. Clips also suggest, as was the director's intention, that Talaash is co-produce by Excel Entertainment as well as Aamir Khan Productions, which is spearhead by Bollywood's most versatile actor. Kagti first worked with Aamir Khan more than a decade earlier, as assistant director on his film, Lagaan, which Aamir Khan also produce. The groundbreaking film went on to become only the third Indian one ever to be nominated for an Oscar. Kagti had write lead role in Talaash with Aamir Khan in mind. And when she approached the actor with a script, Aamir Khan not only agreed to star in the film, he also offered to co-produce it. He said of his reaction: Aamir Khan will celebrate 25 years as an actor in the Indian film industry next year. Yet this is only the second time he has stepped into the role of upstanding Police officer, character which seems to be experiencing something of a renaissance in Indian cinema. But as the director explains, cop in Talaash is as distinctive in Bollywood as the theme of the film: Talaash, Answer Lies Within, is released worldwide on 30 November 2012. Irna Qureshi is an anthropologist and writer on British Asian culture. She blog about being British, Muslim and female in Bradford against the backdrop of classic Indian films songs. It's important for me to follow my heart and I really like the script for Talaash. When I read it, I couldn't predict what was going to happen.
