Seven years back, Imtiaz Ali’s coming-of-age movie, Tamasha, with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone, one of the best screen couples ever, was released. Released on November 27, 2015, Imtiaz Ali’s directorial Tamasha stars Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone.
Appreciation the Movie Deserves!
Tamasha is considered one of the most underrated films ever made, but it is getting the appreciation it deserves with time. Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha is a tale of Ved (Ranbir Kapoor), a person who has an affinity for performing; an animalistic narrator, hiding behind an artificial reality, subjugates himself to societal and behavioural norms his father (Javed Sheikh) wants him to accept. The artificial realism that Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) is. In the movie, Ranbir Kapoor is authentic as the dark and tortured hero, a pendulum between the dramatics his self withholds to be the melancholy, mechanical yes-man, to finally erupting into a self-loathing individual raging against the tedium that is daily life, in his mind.
Storyline in Brief
It Is a true-life automaton that makes his mate fall for Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) first, as an outsider. In many scenes, Ved (Ranbir’s character) shows off his passion and fascination with making stories and telling people. Even if the whole façade is just all façade, Ved (Ranbir’s character) shows off himself to Tara, and that is the picture of Ved with which Tara falls in love.
Ranbir Kapoor ends up questioning his own life story and dares to desire one that is different from the others around him. In the film, Tamasha, Ved takes a break from his monotonous life, which brings his best self to the forefront. After spending years working at a job he hates, Ved takes up drama, showing that he has something to contribute to his life.
Characters and Story
Tamasha is a great vision put into action with the two characters, Ved and Tara, playing the roles. Imtiaz Ali’s directed Tamasha takes you into a world where you could have your Ved and Tara and create your story. Five years back, Ranbir was talking at the promotion event for Imtiaz Ali’s directorial Tamasha, how Tara (Deepika) is an Indian woman who is embedded in our value system but is very contemporary in her approach.
The movie takes you through amazingly-looking scene plays and pieces, with Imtiaz Ali highly detailed in confusing viewers into thinking there is just a singular story out there, getting you to the same place. Despite its predictability, Tamasha got infused with unmatchable complicated emotions that emerge at times & make it stand out compared to the other cliched foreigner-meets-abroad-and-falls-in-love movies. Imtiaz Ali’s directorial Tamasha is infused with beautifully complex emotions about two strangers but requires a bit of patience, and a repeat viewing, maybe, to get the point across, as it holds a message for humanity.
Despite its predictability, Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha got steeped in beautiful, complicated emotions that emerge at times and makes it stand out compared to the other cliched foreigner-meets-abroad-and-falls-in-love movies. While some have termed this as a generic boys-meet-girls tale, others have been able to dig a little deeper into the worlds of Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) and Tara (Deepika Padukone), finding this to be a beautifully written tale that goes beyond simple romance.
Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor- Tamasha chart the protagonist Ved’s journey from following a prescribed life pattern and his childhood self, who got enchanted by stories and characters. The filmmaker gives you just enough background on Ved’s childhood (Ranbir Kapoor) to convince you of his mannerisms later in the movie. Imtiaz Ali’s failure to establish his characters sufficiently to make viewers empathies with them – nearly half of Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor. Tamasha focuses on the picturesque beauty of Corsica, and it harped more on Deepika Padukone-Ranbir Kapoor- sizzle chemistry than it is on drawing viewers in closer to the characters.
Writer-director Imtiaz Ali finds his feet just as sure as his lead, Ved (Ranbir Kapoor), finds his lead character Ved, on the screen. The film casting directors found a suitable younger version of Ranbir Kapoor, who grows up hearing storied stories, and not only romances, from the elderly (Piyush Misra), a storyteller, in his native Shimla. Ranbir Kapoor’s Legendary stories, and not only romances.
Summing it up!
There are some incredibly tender moments in Tamasha that may well be autobiographical. The film is not your standard romance, but each emotion has got sprinkled with the excuses the filmmakers can pull off with success. While the film is story-driven, Imtiaz is letting a bigger story and inspiring you to start living outside the box.
On its face, Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha is a romance told through non-linear narration, in which a woman helps a man to find out who he is. Despite its decidedly adult themes. Tamasha (Spectacle) poses questions that can be understood and appreciated only by viewers who have lived life experiences, which is why fans get advised to keep children home. Tamasha has made a respectable mark at the box office, fueled by word-of-mouth and the draw of both Ranbir Kapoor) and its true-life love interest, Deepika Padukone.
