One of 2015’s most awaited movies finally released it’s trailer and Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha looks like everything you’d expect from a Deepika/Ranbir starer! I am so psyched for this movie, and November 27th can’t come fast enough! I loved the trailer and though the story kind of seems the repetitive, boring guy goes out on a vacation- falls in love-comes back-he’s not who he thought he was- kind of ordeal, Imtiaz Ali is known for breathing life into age old stories and making them new again. One has to wonder are they just playing up for each other or really part of a play which tells their own story?
You might feel like a sense of deja-vu with both leads playing characters they have already done for Imtiaz, with Deepika playing someone similar to her Love Aaj Kal-avatar and Ranbir with the same Rockstar’s anguish appeal, but both are doing what they do best. The trailer leaves no doubt that both have improved their acting skills tenfold since we last saw them on screen, though I hope Ranbir’s dialogue delivery is better than the opening of the trailer.
Another similarity one might notice is that it seems like they are playing the protagonists of Ayan Mukherjee’s Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani, except they switched roles, this time Deepu reminding Ranbir of what life is really about, and having the sense of wanderlust that Bunny had.
The chemistry is crackling. There is nothing but fire on screen, from when they just hold hands, to Deepika’s vulnerable look when she hugs him or the montage of kisses. The last line took my breath away “Tumhay pyar ho gaya hai pagli” Ved says to a quivering Tara, and then responds, only to someone else. Both actors display a range of emotions in a few short minutes and do what they do best with these natural/everyday characters. Deepika as always looks beautiful, I personally love these girl-next-door looks on her with minimlist makes up – a la first half of YJHD and Finding Fanny. Ranbir has matured since his chocolate boy Bunny, but his trademark good looks are on point, this time (thank God) without the hideous wig from Bombay Velvet.
With A.R Rahman doing the music, this is one movie you do not want to pass up. God knows Ranbir can use a hit in his career after 3 back to back flops. Deeps, as always is my Bollywood queen. Surprisingly enough, this time it is Ranbir who needs his former flame to blow some fire into his career, and I have a feeling she won’t fail him.
