Movie Review: Tamasha

Movie Review: Tamasha
Ranbir Kapoor is not dyslexic but has issues (and braces), just like Darsheel Safari. Deepika Padukone is not an arts teacher but plays an Aamir Khan to Mr. Kapoor. This pretty much felt like Taare Zameen Par struck by cupid.

Curious? Confused? Trying to make up your mind whether or not you should go and watch this film, if you would like it or not. Well welcome to the confused club. I admit I can't quite decide if I liked the film or not. Having said that I can safely recommend you go watch this film because not too many filmmakers explore questions like who we really are, and that zone between dil and duniya.

I like Tamasha because it talks about freedom that comes with solo travelling.

Yet I wasn't sure because unlike Queen and English Vinglish, it doesn't show, it tells, almost spoonfeeds, you the thought of how liberating travelling is.

Though a part of me said, it's written so well, so colloquial, so believable. The other part admitted that I had seen it before. This wild child syndrome that Imtiaz often talks about in his films is getting way too predictable.

The couple talking about the striptease dance in Socha Na Tha was cute and refreshingly different. The Rang Biranga Pani Peeke act of Deepika Padukone in Love Aaj Kal was fun. Heer watching Junglee Jawani with Jordan in Rockstar was contrived. And Tara cozying up with Ved in Tamasha's Corsica in the name of this mythical coolness we call free spirited felt so painfully recurring.
