From the beginning of the film, there are the images of NRI stereotyped in a Western universe formatted own productions Yash Raj . The streets of New York as a backdrop, an overdose of luxury and wealthy people, no doubt, is at the Yash Raj we know.
Ta Ra Rum Pum onomatopoeia imitating the sound produced by the engine of Indian car is a romantic comedy, the ultra-classic genre par excellence in Bollywood. Its main asset is to be a production (officially Indo-US) of the young master Aditya Chopra , who brings to his usual single tab, ie an impeccable photography and a nice soundtrack, two ingredients that guarantee sequences musical quality. Note especially the video for the title track, which takes place in a busy world where Rajveer family plays with their animated alter-ego. This scene is the fruit of a collaboration with Disney which resulted in the signing of an alliance contract two months after the film's release.
The winning duo Hum Tum (2004) is back in action, so no surprise on the chemistry between the two stars, Yash Raj productions regulars. The theme of motor racing is a twist for a Hindi film, although there is a revival of sports movies in 2007, but fails to make the film as entertaining as Hum Tum , more conventional romantic comedy less crossover that had just more irresistible drag scenes between his two heroes.
As for the moral of the film yes there is one, Yash Raj plays a paradoxical game. In fact, known to exhibit rupees in their films, with huge budgets, the production company No. 1 in India warns us about the need to save money to ensure his rear during the hard times of life . A beautiful body close to The Cicada and the Ant, which is effective in the film even though we would have liked a lot more realism. The director knows the luxury show in the first part, but can not make us feel the harsh reality of life in the second. The dirt is not really dirty, fairly popular area sanitized.
Without being a great freshness, Ta Ra Rum Pum is also not nearly as annoying as gamy experimentation retro Jhoom Barabar Jhoom, another production Chopra spring 2007, and even better than Salaam Namaste, already with the same director Saif Ali Khan. It is well signposted entertainment and quite successful thanks to its commercial expertise and the charm of its stars.
