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.
Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) and Tara (Deepika Padukone) are two strangers who meet during a holiday trip in Corsica. Tara is a fun loving girl and Ved takes advantage of this and starts to flirt with her in the trip. While they have already put their monotonous life behind, they realize that they have to get back to it after the trip comes to an end.
Tara now falls for Ved. 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…
Plus Points :
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, which has already managed to create quite a stir already, are placed aptly in the plot.
On the whole, Deepika and Ranbir’s Tamasha is a half cooked meal and lacks the depth in many places. But some amazing performances, rich production values and songs make this film just a one time watch.
