There is something special in you. Don't ignore it. Don't try to change yourself to fit into this world. Please... give yourself a chance.
She reminds him of who he is. He is the small town boy who has grown up in the world of stories. He belongs to that world. He is not suited to the corporate rat-race.
The journey he goes through to reach himself is the stage for Tamasha. It's a personal journey - passionate and quirky - that dismantles his life, so that he can become how she sees him... the exuberant story-teller.
Exotic island, youthful abandon, far...far away, Ved and Tara - a story begins.
Ved has grown up amongst stories. As a kid in Shimla, he would collect money; even steal money so that the old storyteller would tell him stories. Ramayan, Helen Of Troy, Laila Majnu, Heer Ranjha, Aladin, Romeo Juliet... The storyteller would also say that all stories are the same.
Ved wants his story with Tara to be different. So, they decide not to tell each other who they are and to only lie about themselves. And, after returning from the island, never to meet each other again.
But they do meet again.
The question is whether they will be able to shape their story in the way they want. Will the muse be able to make an artist of a common man, will Ved be able to break the shackles of ordinary existence, escape the corporate rat-race and become the way Tara sees him - the exuberant story-teller?
Corsica, Shimla, Delhi, Kolkata, Japan - all the world is a stage - as the drama of Ved and Tara unfolds. Frolic, rage, quirk, laughter, defeat, victory. Tamasha.
Verdict : There is definitely a good thought that Imtiaz Ali invests in Tamasha, some moments do come alive and reach out strongly __________________________________________________________________
Tamasha is a romantic drama film directed by Imtiaz Ali and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. It starred Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in the lead roles and the soundtrack is composed by A. R. Rahman. The audience are eager to see the rocking chemistry of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in Tamasha from quite some time now. The movie releases today and lets see how it is.
Tamasha is the story of an individual who loses his self by living according to the social conventions expected of him. Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) and Tara (Deepika Padukone) are two strangers who meet during a holiday trip in Corsica. Ved falls in love with Tara after spending one week with her on the French island of Corsica. But the twist in the tale is that Ved leads a different life and is a different person from what he was with her. How will the couple sort out their differences and will get back together after the trip forms the rest of the story…
Now, how can anyone complaint about the wonder that Ranbir and Deepika look together. The ex-lovers’ on screen chemistry never fails to impress us. While Ranbir Kapoor, who has been unfortunate with his previous ventures, comes out as a star in this one. We do want to see Ranbir in more of such roles.
However, it is Deepika Padukone who easily takes all the limelight away. She is reveting and inspite of her character not been as strong as Ranbir’s, she makes sure to leave a mark with her wonderful performance. The two actors’ body language and amazing expressions are sure to watch out for.
The movie is cliched. There, I said it. The strict father, the love trip, and a lot of scenes as well. Tamasha has a mixture of scenes from Wake Up Sid, Love Aaj Kal and even Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani in it. While in the first half one can only see the independence of the two characters, the second half is so deep, that it drowns you into emotions.
The story becomes a bit boring too, after the couple returns to their respective lives. The same kind of story was earlier attempted in Ek Main Hoon Aur Ek Tu and Tamasha lacks the desired newness in it. Imtiaz Ali, for the first time, did not manage to impress us. The director has kept Ranbir’s character in the second half, so boring that it depresses us to see such a good actor playing a Devdas.
Deepika’s character too did not get much exposure. Their journey is kept amusing, but gets tiring by the second half. We really hoped Imtiaz would have worked little harder on exploring the relation between the two characters rather than concentrating of Ved’s dilemma so much.
Lets start with the locations, which are superb. Imtiaz Ali lets Corsica speak to us and it is breathtaking in every way. The cinematography being equally good, covers the locales amazingly. Editing is excellent. Songs are simply amazing and add a fun element in the movie without creating any disturbance to the flow, hats off to you Mr A. R. Rahman. Matargashti sets the tone for the film & how!
Tamasha goes a step ahead, leaving behind these seminal questions to dwell on something even more significant: finding your true, inner self that has been lost to a robotic work life, to discover and embrace the clown lurking behind the automaton in you. So just go and watch.
