Do Not Believe The Crap You Hear About the Movie!
13 December 2015 | by Paras AgrawalSee all my reviews

Indian audiences are so used to being force-fed crap that they fail to digest quality cinema. I expected a lot from Tamasha since the first trailer aired and was disappointed by the generic reviews i kept hearing from one and all. After much courage, i decided to watch the movie almost a month after its release and was kicking myself for letting grapevine influence my decision to delay the movie.

RK and DP have taken love stories to the next level with Tamasha. Imtiaz has outdone himself from a directorial standpoint as you will notice hints of Anurag Kashyap, Vishal Bhardwaj and even Fight Club in the second half. To be honest, i was never a big fan of DP but after Tamasha i cant ignore her acting prowess. What a stellar supporting cast. Piyush Mishra swishes his magic with whatever screen time he gets and inks his name on some of the most intense scenes in the movie. Tamasha has to be one of Bollywood's most intelligent and intelligently made movies. You can sense Imtiaz's love for street plays in the movie along with some of his own inhibitions being mirrored through RK's performance. RK is undoubtedly the best Bollywood actor at this point. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. He is not only better than any of the Khans (who have undeservedly ruled Indian cinema) but brings a sense of theater acting while carrying a money making face. With Tamasha RK is definitely back!

The beauty of the songs not only lies in the music and the lyrical quality but also in the timely placement.

Please watch this movie for a lovely cinematic relief..
