is a love story. Film tells the story of an individual who loses his self by
living according to the social conventions expected of him. Principal
photography of the film began in Corsica, France in July 2014. Director Imtiaz
Ali said about the film, "There is something special in you. Don't ignore
it. Don't change yourself to fit into this world. Please... give yourself a
chance. She reminds him of who he is. He is the small town boy who has grown up
in the world of stories. He belongs to that world. He is not suited to the
corporate rat-race. The journey he goes through to reach himself is the stage
for Tamasha. It's a personal journey - passionate and quirky - that dismantles
his life so that he can become how she sees him - the exuberant
story-teller." Some portions of the film have been shot in Corsica, France,
Shimla and Kolkata.

Gut Feel and comments:
Ali’s creations have been somewhat a mixed bag full of excitement, from a
complex entertainer movie such as “Rockstar” to a simply projected movie like “Highway” and “Socha
Na Tha”. For some, including
me “Rockstar” was not a movie that was appreciated
in the first instance, however once you outgrow the experimental experience it
starts to seep in and the canvas of his imagination starts emitting color and
strokes of his marvelous creation. To the contrary he has also created movies
that are loved by masses in the first watch itself owing to witty, humorous
storyline that was woven in his style of simplicity of story-telling, to name “Jab we Met” and “Love
me, “Tamasha” appears to be a movie that he has
experimented in terms of subject and overall packaging of the film. I’m very
keen and excited to see how he has projected the never ending battle between heart
and head. Time old battle to, whether, be part of the rat race existence or
carve out a different path by following ones heart?
that Imtiaz is trying to delivery is relatable with today’s youth who believes
in “startups” and taking risks.
leading actors Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika are looking awesome. A.R. Rahman’s
music is as always complementing the film’s flavor. And movie is being aptly
supported by the cinematography.
now Imtiaz haven’t failed in meeting the expectations of its loyal targeted
audiences. I personally appreciated his sensibility of cinema and hope that
this time also he would live up to the expectations of his audiences including
by my gut feel I am giving this movie 3.5 star out of 5 stars, 2 days before
