Question about mutual funds (ELSS).?

Does it make sense to invest in SBI magnum taxgain at present? If we compare performance of the fund for last one-three months, its performance is not bad but if we consider the same for one year or more, then its performance is not good compared to other ELSS funds of repute. Does that mean currently the fund is making progress? How does one decide, whether one should invest in it at present or not? How do I analyze its future prospects?
