Although the story written for this film is good, there are still bad sides about the execution. There is an inconsistency in terms of the film direction and narration. The background music is also too loud and not very suitable for the story. Nonetheless, the casts act very well in this production, with famous stars like Naseeruddin Shah, Mithun Chakraborty, Pallavi Joshi, Pankaj Tripathi, or Mandira Bedi. The characters seem to be too simple for them to show all of their talent, though.

There will be shocking claims to be told in “The Tashkent Files” about the political world in India history. It also highlights some important social issues and includes sensational contents cleverly.

It is not a movie that has no drawbacks, but it is a worth-watching film that you can learn a lot from, and be excited with the story telling.
