    Clickbait & Amateur Filmmaking. ♦ Grade D+

    Political satires are frequently produced in Bollywood, and most of
    them (Miss Tanakpur Hazir Ho (2015) being an example) are worth a good
    watch. But, this one here is an amateur concoction which lacks good
    writing.

    Tukaram (Shreya Talpade) and his wife Sunanda (Manjari Fadnis) are a
    farmer couple from the state of Maharashtra who have come to Uttar
    Pradesh with the intention of taking back the land which is rightfully
    theirs. The land which they claim to have inherited from their
    forefathers is where the Taj Mahal, one of the seven wonders of the
    world, now sits. This revelation puts the whole country in a tizzy as
    politicians and policemen shift in their seats and scramble to get to
    the root of Tukaram’s alleged claim. The story then employs a comical
    style as the duo knock the doors of the high court.

    The story is less of a satire and more of a political farce created
    just to vent the ire regarding the difficulties faced by farmers due to
    crony commercialization of land. The primary subject of the film being
    exploration of corruption in land deals around India, the film takes a
    dig at politicians – both sitting and opposing – who are known to
    exercise nepotism to help industrialists grab lands from poor farmers
    who are then left with the only option of suicide. However, the silly
    premise which the film bases its whole mountainous topic on is hardly
    entertaining. It reeks of unimaginative writing, with no care given to
    research.

    With a contemptible twist towards the end, the film faintly brushes on
    the history of Indian monuments and preaches about the demerits of
    industrialization which is often cited as a cause for development in
    India. Talpade is pitiful in this drama as he tries to look appealing
    in his avatar as a Maratha-faithful farmer. Fadnis should take acting
    lessons and improve her ability to control her expressions, which are
    not always helping. Supporting cast is fine, but they are not directed
    well.

    Lastly, the title of the film is straightaway misleading. If people are
    thinking that it talks only about a farmer claiming to own Taj Mahal,
    then they will only be satisfied for about 5 minutes. Rest is pure
    contrived nonsense. Overall, this could be a light-hearted watch for a
    family only because of the theme it explores, but make sure you leave
    your logical thinking capability at home.

    BOTTOM LINE: Ajit Sinha’s ”Wah Taj” is a film that is something totally
    different than what its title hints at. It is an amateur film about
    land sharks and the curse of industrialization. Watch it on TV if it
    airs.

    Can be watched with a typical Indian family? YES
