Tamasha is a long shot and that`s about it!!

One looked forward to Tamasha for 3 Reasons: Imtiaz`s second collaboration with Ranbir after the highly successful Rockstar, Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor`s insanely good-looking pair and a tale of love set across continents.

The film narrates the story of Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) and Tara (Deepika Padukone) bored by the monotony of the corporate world. Tamasha aims high, intoxicated by the imagination of the urban Sufi of a director Imtiaz Ali, ignited by the chemistry that sets the heart of the gazer afire. Ranbir and Deepika do take you on a journey that oscillates between wild and mysterious to sufi and sedate. But alas! How its flight is shortened by depth of an audacious thinker is lamentable.

Tamasha translates into a spectacle and that it tries to be. Again, I find the virtuosity of Imtiaz, strongly supported by Music Maestro A.R. Rahman, buffeted by a bizzare instinct that coils the film more that letting it slither.
