Deceivingly Flawed

Imtiaz's world is beautifully mounted, picturesque photo postcard lives all over. Indulgent at times, especially in the second half, the narrative that oscillates between imaginary, the past and the present works for most parts. Aided by Rehman's terrific soundtrack, the screenplay gives us pathos p...(more)

Tamasha is different but not perfect.

Tamasha is certainly a one time watch! It is a typical Imtiaz Ali film and hence you cannot go with an expectation of watching a frothy romance. Dealing with the concept of love in a cryptic form, this film will not appeal to everyone.(more)

Movie Review

Every frame is picture-perfect. And Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone are on top of their game.

Its overly simplistic fairy-tale const...(more)

Ranbir and Deepika stun in Imtiaz Ali's audacious love story

Tamasha is the kind of love story seldom seen before on Hindi screen. It is gutsy, somewhat audacious, and complicated. It�s very brave of Imtiaz to bring this to the screen with actors like Ranbir and Deepika; even braver of producer Sajid Nadiadwala to back it.(more)

Gowtham Viswanath

Tamasha's uncertainty towards destiny kept it conflicting, and then came the usual. The fears about taking passion as profession was anything but a cliche. The most deserving Photography brings out breeziness for the eyes. Throughout the Performances that carried the Movie maintained mediocrity in a... (more)
