Karan Johar’s <em>Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, </em>which releases during Diwali, has been threatened with a ‘ban’ in Maharashtra by the Mns. And Karan Johar is not amused. This is not his first brush with political intervention. Earlier, his production, <em>Wake Up Sid</em> was pulled up for referring to Mumbai by its earlier name ‘Bombay’.

Tamasha Movie Review

‘Why always the same story’ reads the tagline of this movie. In essence, any love story at its core is always the same – Boy and Girl meet, fall in love, their love gets tested by difficult times. The only thing that varies is the “villain’ in the story. Earlier, Love had to fight the Society creating obstacles, then it was the family. For the current generation, it’s the inner demons which we often need to tackle. Imtiaz Ali uses this backdrop to give a sad sweet love story through Tamasha.

Amidst the gorgeous backdrop of Corcisa, Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone have a chance encounter. The two decide to never reveal anything about them – “Familiarity leads to boredom”, says Ranbir’s character – and promise to not meet each other after they part ways. They spend their one week together having the time of their lives and before they know
