The much-awaited trailer of Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone’s Tamasha released yesterday and well, it is surely a treat for their fans. Trust Imtiaz Ali to always bring something new to the table and he does that this time too. Ranbir Kapoor is seen essaying the character of Ved, who has a dual nature. On one hand he is stuck in the corporate rat race and on the other side he is a storyteller. Ved loves unfolding drama in real life.
In Corsica, France, he meets Tara played by Deepika Padukone. Her opening scene in the trailer is unfortunately not good enough and while using the terms ‘saale suar jhand’ she reminds us of Kareena Kapoor’s Geet in Jab We Met who did a much better job at swearing. Deepika’s lively character instantly connects with Ved and the duo decide to meet as reel people and stay far from reality. Of course, love meddles in between and things go haywire.
As far as the plot goes, Imtiaz succeeds in getting us intrigued by it. What starts out as a funny trailer further condescends into a grim fight between real and reel. The whole concept of ‘Why The Same Story Again’ also points out at something exclusive. Stage dramas form a part of the film’s script and I am expecting them to be complex as they will form the truly telling moments of the story. That is also how the film derives its name, ‘Tamasha‘ based on the Shakespearean concept of “All the world’s a stage, and all the men and women merely players”.
Just like Rockstar and Highway, Imtiaz relies on A R Rahman for the soundtrack. It already sounds brilliant in the trailer itself and we can finally expect a long-lasting, qualitative album this year.
What works best in trailer, is without any doubt is the affable chemistry of Ranbir and Deepika. Certainly looking forward to this intense romantic drama.
