Movie about life…
Tara Ram Pam is a fantastic movie about Life.
This is the movie about a small time tyre changer and cabbie Rajveer Singh who is very ambitious and wants to make it big. Once he gives lift to Javed Jaffery who got some urgent work and wants to reach the place very fast. Saif drive impresses Javed and he helps him become a Race Car driver. He meets Radhika who has been known as very Kanjoos whereas Saif is very spendthrift. Rani thinks about tomorrow whereas Saif lives for today. Radhika marries Rajveer against her father's wish and starts living with him. Over the years they have two sweet children's, Champ and Princess and Rajveer becomes one of the top ranking racers in US. But one race accident shattered his dreams. He becomes handicapped mentally. He is unable to race again because of the mental block he develops after the accident. He lost his home and everything else. But Radhika hasn't lost her hope in him. She knows that their day will come soon. They move to a small house.
The most touching part is when they tell their children that they are going to play a reality show where they would live like a poor with just $2000 in their hand. He starts lying to make money. Fate brings him back to race track when his son is admitted in hospital and needed $65000 to be saved.
This film is such a joy for Hindi cinema goers and non Hindi cinema goers alike. The songs are fantastic; they really move the story along and occur at just the right time to heighten the emotion. AB to forever is so catchy the audience clapped along! A great and genuinely lovable cast of characters portrayed with dignity and truth by top actors as they face the trials of life - with courage and a smile, according to the tag line. And they really do.
Rani and Saif are a believable and appealing couple, one hope that when they will be paired again on screen, the children are adorable. Rani drunk is HI-Larious and Saif is such a thoughtful and witty actor. They both look at their most beautiful in this film. The family unit is totally compelling.
Ta Ra Rum Pum stays true to its Indian heart whilst embracing Western cultures and ideas without envy. A very enjoyable well made film.
