A political columnist gets an unknown call while she is caught up with tidying up her cake-spread face in the washroom. The guest on the opposite end shoots inquiries at her promising a ‘scoop’ in return. Until he solicits her the criticalness from second October. From that point, Vivek Agnihotri takes us on an adventure which has a lot of good and bad times. The Tashkent Files spins around a youthful, eager columnist Ragini (Shweta Basu Prasad) who distributes an article about the strange passing of India’s second Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shashtri. Things get steam and an official request board of trustees is set by the administration to research Shashtri’s demise.

The remainder of the plot rotates around how Ragini endeavors to reveal reality by turning back the pages of history and encounters the universe of governmental issues and secret activities. The movie producer grabs a standout amongst the most dubious sections from quite a while ago and runs us through a few hypotheses encompassing it.

The film tosses addresses like ‘For what reason were there cut blemishes on Shastri’s body?’, ‘Why no posthumous was done?’ ‘Was there a trick behind the coincidental passings of two observers Shashtri’s hireling Ram Nath and his own specialist Dr. RN Chugh? While Vivek Agnihotri has every one of the fixings to make a holding political dramatization, it’s his silly execution which ruins the show. The account comes up short on the punch and makes it tedious watch.

Talking about the performances, Shweta Basu Prasad overwhelms dominant part of the screen-time and hauls out a genuine demonstration, excepting a couple of scenes where she goes somewhat preposterous. Mithun Chakraborty, Pankaj Tripathi and Pallavi Joshi are great. Naseeruddin Shah experiences a poor-portrayed job. Mandira Bedi has her influence well.

Toward the finish of the film when it’s shown that the validness of the actualities showed can’t be checked, it abandons you doubting the obscured line among certainties and fiction in the film.
