Tamasha Movie Review
Tamasha Movie Review ,If you watch Imtiaz Ali’s new film assuming that Deepika-Ranbir have unfinished business, you will forgive Tamasha its indulgence. The writer-director obviously knew he was dangling a carrot in front of these two Bollywood exes whose unrequited love has been gossip-column fodder for years now.
Armed with this life lesson, cute kid Ved from Shimla, who hates math and loves spinning yarns, keeps taking off on flights of fantasy. His first grown up adventure is an incognito trip to Corsica. He bumps into Tara, a beautiful Indian girl, on that breathtaking island and both of them promise they will not ask each other any questions, will not have sex and will go their separate ways, once this vacation ends. But of course, Cupid has other plans.
The movie is the second association between Ranbir Kapoor and Imtiaz Ali. It is about a love story between Ved (Ranbir) and Tara (Deepika). It all starts with a stage show depicting Ved’s life story and then there is a flashback scenario in which the childhood of Ved is shown.
In the childhood scenario, it is shown that Ved is more into stories and drama and less into studies. He also keeps running to an old story teller and keeps listening to stories.His dad is typical and keeps telling him the virtues of getting good grades and hard work. This really creates a lot of turmoil during his childhood when he realises that his calling is storytelling and drama.
Now to the present, Ved decides to go to Corsica for a week where he decides to be himself finally and live freely, that is when he meets a certain damsel in distress Tara and in full filmy style they interact without disclosing their identity and they have a time of their life. They fall in love with each other in the process and mind you they do not even know each other’s identity.
Fast forward three years Ved is a product manager in a good company and is completely opposite to what he was in Corsica.
Tamasha Movie Review
Expectedly, it’s the affecting performances of Ranbir and Deepika that keep you invested in the film until the end, even when the script feels like it’s going around in circles. Ranbir displays incredible maturity and just the right amount of restraint in a complex part, once again giving proof of his abundant talent.
Deepika does the bulk of her work with those big expressive eyes, and conquers challenging scenes with natural ease. She practically steals the film, despite it being Ved’s story essentially.
In the end, Tamasha doesn’t come together satisfactorily, but it’s not for a lack of trying. I’m going with two-and-a-half out of five. There’s a lot to appreciate here, and more than a few moments that’ll break your heart.
