By Bollywood Hungama (2/5)

TAISH is the story of two families who end up destroying each other. Rohan Kalra (Jim Sarbh) is a UK resident of Indian origin who works as a GP in a hospital. He is living-in with Arfa Sayeed Khan (Kriti Kharbanda), who is of Pakistani origin. Rohan takes leave from work to be with his family in the countryside and to attend the wedding of his brother Krish (Ankur Rathee) with Mahi (Zoa Morani).

Released as a movie and web series Taish (fit of rage, anger) is Bejoy Nambiar's take on anger, resentment, fit of rage. Bejoy Nambiar convinced the thinking cinema aficionados with 'Shaitan' that he is a filmmaker with a distinct voice. Bejoy continued his experiments with human emotions with his own 'flair' and tones in David, Wazir and here in Taish his theory of anger is structured on two different families, two love stories, a marriage, faith, trust, betrayal, family, desire, lust, loss, fate, faith, suffering, redemption and more.

After making his way into Bollywood with a way-ahead-of-its-time Shaitan, hopes were sky-high with Bejoy Nambiar. Despite a mixed response, David & Wazir still impressed me for its exquisite and sublime writing. What does Nambiar have in store for us with Taish? Let's find out! It's coming out in both the formats (web series - including six episodes approx 30 minutes/episode & film) & I'd suggest to go with the web-series because it's more detailed and explore things organically.

Originally a feature film, Taish was broken down into six episodes to give the semblance of a Web series. It is a superb ploy considering the script's inherent dispersed tone that moves to and fro between regrettable impulses and impending doom. As a consequence, the ensuing drama is free to unleash its eclectic energy and edgy conflict until it all converges to a point of no return.

If you ever watched Bejoy Nambiar's Shaitan (2011), it's quite likely that your most vivid memory from the film is the 'bulletproof mattress' sequence. Rajeev Khandelwal's cop braves heavy fire from goons in a dingy hostel as the camera swims over the ceiling and under the cot. Khoya Khoya Chand, infused with reggae beats and a thick accent, perhaps the only good remake of a classic song, sounds over echoing gunshots, making it one of the top five slick action sequences in Hindi films.

Taish means rage, the internet tells us, and there is plenty of it on display in Bejoy Nambiar's latest attempt to match style with substance. The story, by Nambiar, revolves around a bunch of aggressive and angry people. Some of them have been nursing their wrath for years. Others are waiting for an excuse to act out.

Two Indian families in London turn into sworn enemies. Two friends are sucked into the vortex of the resultant violence. And two pairs of lovers struggle to find their way forward amid a bitter feud triggered by long-suppressed trauma. Taish, created by Bejoy Nambiar for Zee5 and released on the streaming platform both as a six-episode series and a standalone movie, has all the elements in place to make for a slickly directed visceral thriller.

There's an intriguing new experiment in town. ZEE5 is launching writer-director Bejoy Nambiar's Taish in two versions: a six-part mini-series with episodes of around 30 minutes each and a two-and-a-half-hour feature film. The total duration of the series is 34 minutes more than the film. This could have translated either into greater substance or more fluff in the series, or simply, interesting but differing takes on the same storyline, depending on the choices made in the writing and editing process. So which is it?

'Taish mein aa jaana' literally translates into 'flying off the handle in exasperated anger', and that's exactly what Sunny Lalwani (Pulkit Samrat) does practically all through this 6 part web series, created and directed by Bijoy Nambiar. He simmers, glowers, and explodes, and the ripples are far-reaching: we see the consequences building up, to a suitably bloody climax.
