The Melodious Rhythm: TAAL #A2ZofBollywood


Taal(1999) is a musical romantic drama involving a love story of a wealthy boy Manav, and a small-town girl Manasi who later turned into an international music star. The storyline of the movie is not something we have not seen earlier, it is very casual with the anticipated ending but I must say brilliant composition and songs by A.R.Rehman has added more charm in the movie. Aishwarya Rai’s unparalleled beauty and acting skill have done full justice in emoting Mansi’s character. Mansi’s story is the story of every girl who stood back for her and her parent’s self-respect.


Manasi (Aishwarya Rai), is the daughter of a folk singer Tara Babu (Alok Nath). Manav Mehta (Akshaye Khanna) comes to visit this place with his family as his father Jagmohan Mehta(Ambrish Puri) and Mansi’s father are old friends, where Manav falls in love with Mansi and returns to Bombay after promising to marry her. Later Mansi with her father go to Bombay to meet Manav and his family to meet also to discuss the marriage, but they are humiliated by Manav’s family in the absence of Manav. Grief-stricken father and daughter left the place by ending all the ties from Manav. While moving back home duo comes across Vikrant Kapoor (Anil Kapoor) who runs a music company. Vikrant was fond of folk songs and looking for a stage performer, in addition, he found both in Mansi. He decided to make her a stage performer. With the passing time, Vikrant falls in love with Mansi and they both decide to get married after a concert, but the girl realizes that she still loves Manav. who is badly making all efforts after knowing the truth of treatment by his family to Mansi and her father.


1). Respect relationships beyond your ego but not beyond your self-respect.

2). Humiliation and failure are the biggest teachers of life, they make you meet to your hidden strength to hit back with the double power, it is totally on you in which direction you want to consume your energy positive or negative.

3). Opportunity does not offer a second chance, when it comes to you identify it and accept it with all your heart, do not give failure the key of all the doors of your happiness.

My Heart Says To Share This Too:-Today Letter “T” put me into a dilemmatic situation, no wonder how? I was so prepared for movie Taal and its characters to discuss on but down the line, my heart eagerly wanted to share about one more movie from “Marathi Cinema”(my Marathi friends must be known about this movie) but my theme is stick to A2ZofBollywood so, after much of hustle and bustle between heart and brain being biased I decided to go with my heart and now sharing my one of the most favorite movie in the Marathi language “Ti Sadhya Kay Karte”(2017) (What Is She Up To?-translation in English), a movie is a treat to its audience to live their memories once again right from the First Crush of your school days to the Reunion Party with friends in mid-age including, neighborhood friendship bond, college crush and many more. This is the debut movie of actor Abhinay Berde( Son of comedian-actor Laxmikant Berde) I am leaving you with the trailer of “Ti Sadhya Kay Karte”!!!!

That is all for today see you tomorrow with another scintillating character. Till then have a happy reading, leave with your comments, and promise to be back tomorrow!!

    Thanks Archana for yet another impressive post. I liked all the songs from the movie Taal and the deep message it conveys. In addition to the three points, to move forward it is necessary to forget our past.

    Thanks for the Marathi movie suggestion. I will check it today itself. Not sure when I would be able to watch it.

    Taal what a musical marvel. I still love its songs to the core. Kahi aag lage or taal se taal even ramta jogi it was a great musical drama.
    I have seen Ti sadhya kai karte, khrach mast movie ahe and the song Hrudayat vaje something is always on my lips.

    You are right this was not a new story but somehow this movie was liked due to the music and some brilliant performances. Your findings are so true. Relationships have to be beyond the ego and before self respect. Loved the post

    Taal.. I remember the goosebumps I got throughout the movie..the music is so catchy. The glamour of the stage and instant popularity makes monsters out of normal people. Loved your insights on the movie.

    You know what, my predicament has always been about the line that demarcates ego from self respect. And this movie helps clear that blur to a lot of extent. A nice insightful analysis by you I would say
