Story: We know that the Taj Mahal was built by Shah Jahan but did you know that the land, on which it was built, belonged to a Maharashtrian farmer? Well, at least that’s what the film wants us to believe.

Review: Tukaram (Shreyas Talpade) dressed in a kurta-pyjama-jacket and Sundari (Manjari Phadnis) in a low-waist nauvari sari, pitch a tent on the banks of Yamuna in the sweltering Agra-heat, laying claim to the land that the Taj Mahal stands on. As if that isn’t unbelievable enough, there emerges proof, in the form of an age-old letter signed by Emperor Humayun, to back the claim.

The hullabaloo draws media attention and puts pressure on the government to resolve the dispute. A jail-mantri named Visarjan Yadav, the Chief Minister, the leader of the opposition, a top-cop and a social worker; all of them get involved and this, as expected, leads to more problems than solutions. The film then follows the beaten path; one that involves clichés and used-to-death situations.

Ever since the film starts, one thing is clear that there’s an underlying motive behind Tukaram and Sundari’s actions. But the filmmaker conveniently keeps that reserved for the climax. Not that the motive explains much but well, at least we get to know the makers’ reason behind making us endure the 100-odd minutes of illogical genius.

As the protagonist, Shreyas goes overboard with forced-humour. His Marathi manoos impersonation doesn’t help things either. Manjari looks beautiful but falls short when it comes to showcasing her acting chops. Hemant Pandey gets his act right though.

Wah Taj aims to put focus on the pitiable conditions of farmers and the devil-may-care approach of the government machinery. The end result, however, is a film that has its heart in the right place but nothing new to offer. A few scenes, like the one in the courtroom, stand out in this otherwise average attempt. You can risk watching it once.
