Tamasha Review – Ranbir Kapoor
Tamasha tells the journey of Ved (Ranbir Kapoor). Ved has grown up to listening love stories. He himself is very found of Ramayan, Helen of Troy, Laila Majnu, Heer Ranjha, Aladin and Romeo Juliet. But he also seems that all the stories are the same. His life takes a u-turn when he meets Tara (Deepika Padukone) in Corsica. He wants his story with Tara to be different. So they decide to not tell each other who they are, to only lie about themselves and after returning from the island to never 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? Watch the film to find out.
Imtiaz Ali’s story about a young man’s journey is quite different from the usual commercial fare. However, the screenplay, penned by Imtiaz Ali, is of the kind which would appeal to the classes mainly. The narrative style is also a bit confusing for the audience as overlapping scenes have been used to further the drama.
The making is fresh and the canvas, big and wonderful. Dialogues, penned by Imtiaz Ali, are very natural. The film is extremely colourful and youthful and for that section of the youth, the film becomes a veritably enjoyable fare.
Tamasha Review: Direction, Editing, Screenplay
Imtiaz Ali’s direction is first-rate. He has made the film like a painting on celluloid. There is always some sufi kind of romance in his films. But his narrative style is of a kind which will be loved by elite and not appreciated too much by the audience of the single-screen cinemas and small centres.
The first half is a bit slow but it is the second half where the magic begins. The film is very high on emotions. The some sequnces will literally leave you in tears. Anyone who has lived a dream, will connect to this film big time.
A.R. Rahman’s music comprises some hit numbers. The songs like Safarnama and Agar Tum Saath Ho are so pleasant to hear in the film. Irshad Kamil’s lyrics are rich and thought provoking. Song picturisations are refreshing.
Ravi Varman’s cinematography is extraordinary. You will witness some breathtaking visuals of Corsica. It is a visual treat just like Imtiaz’s other films. Editing is very different in style from what one is used to seeing. Production values are very grand.
Tamasha Review: Star Performances
♦ Ranbir Kapoor is back and he is back with a bang. He does an extraordinary job. His acting is excellent and it wouldn’t be incorrect to say that he has lived the role of Ved. It is indeed an award winning performance.
♦ Deepika Padukone is on a roll. She has been on a great stride ever for a long time and what appeals to me even more is her choice of films. She looks very natural as Tara. The scene where she is following Ranbir will make you cry. Her chemistry with Ranbir Kapoor is something to die for.
♦ Javed Sheikh excels in the role of Ved’s father. Nikhil Bhagat and Faraaz Servaia also does a decent job. But this film is all about Ved and Tara.
♦ First rate direction
♦ Ranbir’s act
♦ Fresh look
♦ Narrative style
♦ Class appeal only
Tamahsa Movie Review: Verdict
On the whole Tamasha is another brilliant work by Imtiaz Ali. The film has all the ingredients which you can expect from the director. It is a delicious romantic drama filled with elements that make you rack your brains too. Don’t miss this.
The film will score big at multiplexes but will have limited appeal outside metros.
