What happens when a zesty passionate story-teller stuck amidst the strangling system of rat race comes across a peppy vibrant girl who hits hard on his robotic mask and wants to bring out the real ‘him’ out? Tamasha is a sun-kissed story of two strangers coming across and walking a stormy emotional journey together.

Ranbir Kapoor is a boy who hails from Shimla and loves to listen to and share stories. As powerful as imagination could be, the child’s father however forces him to become an engineer. The charming lively person slowly loses every bit of enthusiasm and thirst of life in the process of shaping an apparently lucrative career that squeezes him out. Meanwhile while vacationing, he meets Deepika Padukone. They decide not to reveal themselves, stay as mysterious friends and to never meet again, once the vacation is over. What happens afterwards? Where does the stream of life take them? If you got to find out, you got to watch.

Love stories are usually simple, unless you complicate them yourself. However, within a love-story underlies layers of events and emotions which mold us, affect us, sometimes change us. Attachments that are too precious to us, challenge our boundaries, expand the horizons of our limitations and make us win the impossible too. This beautiful tale of exploration is what Tamasha amsters in. When it comes to defining love, Imtiaz Ali has his own style of picturizing differend colours of affection and heart-break. The love story isn’t something great and you might be familiar to it. But the shades added to it together make it heartwarming. Another beautiful thing Imtiaz Ali has captured is a child’s world of imagination.

Ranbir Kapoor, throughout, has stolen the show while Deepika Padukone looks shining. Apart from A R Rahman’s music where each song is apt for one different mood, Aarti Bajaj’s experimental video edits and Ravi Varman’s cinematography are sure to catch your eyes. We absolutely fell in love with Corsica meanwhile.

If you compel us to find a shortcoming, we would say it will sort of remind you of ‘Love Aaj Kal’ in few sequences. But then, a filmmaker’s vision has to be visible in each film he makes.

Go watch Tamasha. You might just feel like re-exploring yourself.
