Though the movie was initially called 'Tasveer' but the producer added '8x10' to its title later as he felt that the earlier name was jinxed. The movie's hero has a supernatural gift to look into the past of dead people by touching their 8×10 photographs. And, mysteries begin to arise when a 8×10 photograph reveals his past. Later a personal tragedy leads him to use his power to come up with the answers!
The film was further delayed too because of the producers-distributors dispute with exhibitors over revenue-sharing terms and the IPL. The Guild had decided not to release any new movies from April 3 but paying heed to Percept Picture Company's request decided that the strike will commence from April 4 facilitating the movie's release on April 3rd.
Even recently, the movie's release was going to be deferred because of a controversy over a financial transaction between its co-producers - Percept Picture Company and T-Series. However, the matter has been settled and Percept has released it single handedly.
Akshay, Ayesha and all others have done a great job in the film and he is sure the audience will praise their hard work. The film has already generated mass appeal courtesy its promos and music by Salim-Suleiman and because it is the first big-budget project after two months' draught in Bollywood!
This leads to a complete breakdown of relationship between the two. Jai's wife Sheela Puri played by Ayesha Takia, is grudgingly supportive of her husband but has a 'real' job and is the actual bread-winner of the family. Sometime later, Jatin is killed in a boating accident under mysterious circumstances and Jai feels very bad about losing his father and the times that could've been shared.
He eventually unravels the mystery and in a nail biting finish comes up with a startling answer. Other significant factors that have lent support to the success of the movie are that Salim-Suleman has composed its music and rap artist Bohemia and has sung its promotional title song that is picturised on Akshay Kumar. The cinematography, especially of Canada, is worth mentioning.
But there being no other movie released during the past two months to compete with it, Nagesh' 'Tasveer' is likely to reap the benefit. Anyway, it's a definitely better than contemporary movies.
