Tamasha Analysis

Tamasha Movie Review and Ratings

Ranbir’s character would appear like a mix of his characters in ‘Ye Jawani Hei Diwani’ and Rockstar movies. The chemistry with his real life ex-girlfriend, Deepika Padukone would be liked by many. The film goes on with an enough number of cool episodes in the first half. The interval block raises the expectations and makes us curious about the  happenings in the second half.

But all those expectations would be dipped, just after the few minutes of the start of the second half. The shades in Ranbir’s characterization, would be tough to digest at least for his fans. But if the Rockstar formula works here, it would be liked by that section of people.


Ranbir is terrific in the movie. He got to perform few interesting shades in the film and surprisingly, all those would be identical to his real life character. Deepika’s role has given, what she could do, or to say what she had already done in her earlier movies. So, she would obviously be well connected to Tara’s character. Javed Shiekh as a strict father is good, rest other roles are decent. 

AR Rahman’s music is at its peaks and boosts up the content of the scene, with his apt background score. Dialogues are just ok, the cinematography is good, but the editing should be concentrated and the production values are rich. 

Imtiaz Ali had tried to recreate the magic of ‘Love Aaj Kal’, but diverted it to a different route, for the fear of being caught. Unfortunately, that different route would appear dangerous.

Tamasha Final Word

Tamasha has Tamasha less and tensions more. If you are ready for it, the movie is available at your nearest theatres.
