Movie Review- Tamasha

I went and saw Tamasha yesterday. And here’s why I liked it:

  • Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor work. Totally work. Their chemistry is palpable. Helps that Kapoor isn’t an aging Khan and an actual contemporary of the lead actress; playing his own age.
  • Corsica is beautiful. And the fact that they moved away from Capri and Greece is a novelty also.
  • The premise of the movie is always relevant for those who have been raised by overbearing albeit well-intentioned Indian parents.
  • Makes sense because the course of “love” doesn’t always run smooth and neither do people always know what they want in this day and age.
  • Because people do change their minds or it is changed for them so often about crucial things in their lives that they lose touch with who they are.
  • Because we grow up too quickly and childhood remains a dream.
  • Because life is extremely exacting and we aren’t always up to the challenge it throws down.
  • Because we all may have fantasies about that other person we could have (should have) been; in a different time and place.
  • Because getting into a relationship is the easy part. Staying in it, is what becomes tough.
  • Because the line dividing expectation from reality sometimes becomes too firmly etched to be erased or altered.
  • Because it was entertaining and I’m a soppy romantic deep down 🙂
