Filmed briefly in Corsica, Indian citiesShimla, Delhi, Gurgaon, Kolkata; followed by two-day schedule in Tokyo, the film tells the story of character Ved Vardhan Sahni (played by Kapoor) in three stages–as a nine-year-old child, a 19-year-old adolescent and a 30-year-old adult in a drama-based non-linear screenplay. It is regarded as one of the most underrated movie in Bollywood.

The film was released on 27 November 2015 to mixed reviews by film critics.[5] However, they widely praised the performances of lead actors but criticised the unsatisfactory togetherness of the plot. The film grossed over ₹136 crore worldwide, making it the 10th highest grossing Bollywood film of 2015[6] but because of its high budget, it was considered a poor performer.[7] The film received nominations for direction, music and performances of the lead actors, notably Kapoor being nominated under Filmfare Award for Best Actor category. Padukone won Stardust Award for Best Actress and Irshad Kamil won the Filmfare Award for Best Lyrics for his lyrical work to the soundtrack album of the film.

PlotEdit

The film opens with Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) and Tara's (Deepika Padukone) monotonous back stories as people in the corporate world.[clarification needed] A flashback shows, as a child in Shimla, Ved is fascinated by the stories narrated by a road side story teller (Piyush Mishra) who keeps mixing up his characters.

The film moves to real time where Tara meets adult Ved, while both are holidaying in Corsica. They come up with an amusing verbal pact to keep their real identities undisclosed. They explore the island together. They pretend to be "Don" and "Mona Darling" and talk in filmy dialogues. When she realizes she is falling in love with Ved, Tara decides to leave Corsica despite the romantic friendship with him. The story flashes back to young Ved who questions the story-teller about the reason for happy times ending quickly and notices each story has a sad episode in it.

Tara returns to Kolkata, India. Tara's father (played by Nikhil Bhagat) hands over his tea business to Tara, she expands it by starting a line of tea boutiques, taking the company ahead. She is off to Delhi for work and four years have passed. One day, Tara surprisingly meets Ved, who is now a product manager. They reveal their original identities. They plan for a date at a Japanese restaurant. She expects him to talk like the days in Corsica but Ved talks about business. She calls Ved up home to be intimate. Ved leaves for his home and next morning Ved wakes up on time, completes the morning chores, wipes the car, ignores the transgender on the way, lets a female colleague into the lift—all this happens on his way to the office. He fixes a plan for meeting Tara again in the evening. Each morning to evening, similar incidents repeat monotonously. On Ved's birthday, he proposes to Tara but she is unhappy with the real-life Ved. She declines the proposal. Ved leaves for his home by an auto-rickshaw. The driver (played by Ishteyak Khan) narrates how his dreams of becoming a singer were crushed. Ved breaks down and his residual mental disorder is triggered.[8]

An exacerbated Ved due to his Borderline personality disorder ends up upsetting his boss with nonsensical presentation in a business meeting. Ved begs Tara to come back to his life. She indirectly informs him she is fixated in Ved's divergent personality from Corsica, not the matured Ved who lives by societal conventions. Later Tara expresses her realization of hurting him and apologizes. Frustrated Ved leaves. Next day, Ved continues his office routine with a change, gives a diamond ring to the transgender and he gets evicted from his workplace for his continuous mindless behaviors.

Ved comes back to Shimla and reveals he was jobless and wandering for six months. After a tussle with his father, Ved gains introspection from a reflection in the mirror, he realizes that to complete his own story, he needs to meet the old story-teller. The old story-teller criticizes Ved's irrationality, and confronts him to complete his own story. This opens Ved's eyes. Ved narrates his life story to his family members. Moved by this, his father forgives him for leaving engineering and lets Ved pursue his life as he wishes.

Ved returns to Delhi and takes the diamond ring returned to him by the affectionate transgender. Tara, after finishing a business meeting at Oracle in Tokyo, heads for refreshment where she finds a note titled "Don Returns". Perplexed about Ved's presence, she moves around the office campus and Ved draws her attention with the "Don" personality from Corsica. The film goes into a flashback and shows scenes from Shimla of a free spirited-young Ved, a college going Ved and an adult Ved. The film returns to present day (first scene of the film) where Ved and Tara complete the process of putting up an elaborated skit on stage (in continuation of the opening scene of the film) a spectacle which depicts of their own life story.

DevelopmentEdit

"This thought played in my mind for very long, basically who are we? Sometimes people have to pretend what they have to be, than what they actually are. In front of people we all have to behave in a certain way, we are in some character. We can’t be who we are. I had this thought even as a kid. I think it’s coming from there."

 —Imtiaz Ali on how he got the film's idea.[13]

In 2013, it was announced that director Imtiaz Ali will be making a film with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone in the lead titled, Window Seat.[14] Anushka Sharma was the original choice for the lead actress which later went to Padukone.[15] The title was changed to Tamasha in 2014 which was taken from the lines of poet Ghalib–"Hota Hai Shab-O-Roz Tamasha Mere Aagey" (your most personal thought is your life's biggest spectacle).[16][17] Ali said that the film is "about the journey of someone who has lost his edge in trying to conform to the society" and about "abrasion and loss of self in attempt to fit in".[18] He called the film "severely intense and personal" story that questions the "systems we get trapped in and crushed childhood dreams".[19][20]

Talking about the reason behind the working title Window Seat, Ali said: "It’s that thought that crosses your mind when you are sitting by the window of a train and watching Ratlam go by and you think, what if I get down from this train? What life awaits me there?".[21] Ali stated that he wanted to create "different tone" for the film and thus made Kapoor look attractive in Corsica and ordinary in Delhi.[22] Both Ali and Kapoor met Teejan Bai for the research for narrations of the Mahabharata in the film.[23] Ali described the characters of Ved and Tara as "storyteller" and "emotionally agile" respectively.[21] He called these characters as the closest to him.[21] When the characters meet for the first time in the film, they decide not to disclose their identities. The film paid homage to actor Dev Anand through this act. Kapoor took classes from mime artists to mimic the requisite dialogues.[24] Pakistan actor Javed Sheikh was cast in the role of Kapoor's father.[17] Aki Narula designed the costumes for Kapoor whereas Anaita Shroff Adajania for Padukone. The costumes were made according to the different mood of the film.[25]

FilmingEdit

 
Ali Kapoor and Padukone filming in Corsica.

Principal photography began in Corsica, France on 9 July 2014 and was wrapped on 30 July 2014.[26][27] The song "Matargashti" was shot in Bastia.[28] Some portions were shot in Shimla for 15 days featuring flashback sequences of a younger Ved.[29][30][31] Tamasha was also shot in Kolkata on January 2015, where Padukone's office scenes were filmed on a set in the office of J Thomas & Co. Pvt. Ltd.[11][32] The song titled, "Heer To Badi Sad Hain" was shot in Kolkata.[19] The sequence between Kapoor and Padukone before the song "Agar Tum Saath Ho" took over three days to finish as Ali felt it was "emotionally draining" for Kapoor and Padukone.[22] Ali said he was inspired by a real girl he saw in Europe who was continuously crying on a bench and people were coming and going.[33] Padukone did not use glycerin for the scene and cried for real. The following scenes were improvised.[33]

The Delhi schedule of filming began on 29 January 2015.[34] Scenes featuring Kapoor were shot at the Time Tower Business Park in Gurgaon.[35] Padukone joined the same schedule, a day later, beginning the shoot in southern Delhi's Hauz Khas.[36] The schedule was wrapped up by 23 February 2015.[37] Certain scenes were shot in Delhi from 10 March 2015, extending a week further.[38] Majority of the scenes were shot at Bishop Cotton School.[39] The next filming schedule began in Tokyo on 8 April 2015 and lasted for two days.[40] Further filming continued in Delhi for five days.[40] In August 2015, the last schedule of filming began at Mehboob Studio in Mumbai.[41][42] The filming was completed on 6 August 2015.[43][44] Tamasha was shot in 91 days in Corsica, Shimla, Delhi, Tokyo, Kolkata and Mumbai.[45][22] Ravi Varman and Aarti Bajaj served as the film's director of photography and editor respectively.[46]

MusicEdit

The soundtrack album and film score is composed by A. R. Rahman with song lyrics by Irshad Kamil.[47] The soundtrack album's first single "Matargashti" was released on 9 October 2015.[48] The album was released on 16 October 2015 by the record label T-Series.[49]

ReleaseEdit

Ranbir Kapoor had no releases in the year 2014. After January 2015, Kapoor had Roy, Bombay Velvet and Jagga Jasoos lined up for release. In order to avoid back to back releases with less time gap between his films, he decided to postpone Tamasha to 2016.[50] Further, the producers of the film couldn't opt for a late December 2015 release due to multi-starrer films Bajirao Mastani and Dilwale, where Deepika was also a leading actress in the former.[50] However, in May 2015, it was announced that Tamasha will release on 27 November 2015 and Kapoor's other film Jagga Jaasoos pushed to mid-2017.[51] The film was promoted with the tagline "Why always the same story?".[52]

The film was censored with U/A certificate on 7 November 2015. Scenes with bawdy dialogue references and comments addressing Padukone's character[53] were muted.[53][54] The censor board claimed it as the most lengthy kissing scene ever on screen, longer than the one picturised between Aamir Khan and Karisma Kapoor in the film Raja Hindustani.[54] On 17 November 2015, The British Board of Film Classification passed the film uncut with PG certificate.[55] The film had a special screening at Yash Raj Studios on 26 November 2015.[56]

The film released on 27 November 2015 at an estimate 2100 number of screens in India and 571 screens overseas.[57]

Critical responseEdit

IndiaEdit

The film opened with mixed to positive reviews, with ravishing response over the performance of both Ranbir and Deepika as well as their on-screen chemistry, however they criticised over the story, screenplay and the unsatisfactory togetherness of the plot. Critic Mehul of Deccan Chronicle awarded 4 stars (out of 5) and stated, "Imtiaz Ali, in this film, creates a different world and makes you believe in it till the last shot of the film."[58] Ananya Bhattacharya of India Today gave the film 3.5 stars (out of 5), writing, "In all, Tamasha is vintage wine. There are inhibitions that keep you from falling head-over-heels in love with the film the first time you watch it. Once done away with the initial hesitation, Tamasha is an experience."[59] For The Times of India, critic Priya Gupta said, "The route Tamasha takes is long-winded and plain boring at times."[60] She gave the film 3 stars (out of 5).[60] Pallavi Patra of Zee News gave the film 3.5 stars (out of 5) claimed, " A clear picture of how twisted your life can get under the painful currents of life. All said and done, the clear winners in this 'drama' are the protagonists, more than the story itself."[61]

For The Huffington Post, critic Supratik Chatterjee writes, "Tamasha is, in many ways, a culmination of the recurring themes in Ali’s filmography. It is tonally messier than his last film, Highway, but more emotionally satisfying than Rockstar and brings together elements from many of his films in a pleasing-enough manner."[62] Writing for CNN-IBN, film critic Rajeev Masand called Tamasha an uneven film that oscillates between inventive and indulgent, never quite striking a consistent tone. He criticized the script but praised the performances of Kapoor and Padukone. He gave the film 2.5 stars (out of 5).[63] Critic based at Bollywood Hungama gave the film 2 stars (out of 5) and wrote, "On the whole, Tamasha comes across as a colossal disappointment in spite of towering performances and chemistry between the lead stars."[64] In his review for NDTV, Saibal Chatterjee gave stars (2.5 out of 5) writes, "Tamasha is at best a one-time watch because of the sparkle the leads lend to it. It could have been so much more."[65]

Surabhi Redkar of Koimoi pointed out, "Tamasha is different but not perfect. Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone deliver fine performances." However, she awarded the film 2.5 stars (out of 5).[66] Critic Shubhra Gupta of The Indian Express reviewed in positive stating, "Deepika is luminous, and she is much more sure-footed in her part. Even though Ranbir gets more space, Tara is drawn with welcome depth."[67] However, she gave the film 2 stars (out of 5).[67] Critic Subhash K. Jha for Firstpost stated, "This is a film that doesn’t entirely succeed in its endeavour to decode the heart's enigmatic excursions. But the journey is fascinating and admirable, though not entirely fulfilling."[68] Critic Anupama Chopra, in her review to Hindustan Times writes, "Tamasha starts to feel indulgent and predictable. The writing also gets lazy — Imtiaz settles for stereotypes and simplistic resolutions."[69]

In her review for The Hindu, critic Namrata Joshi called the film 'ponderous and protracted'[70] Rachit Gupta of Filmfare mentioned, " Ironically, it has a story that tries to ward off mediocrity in everyday life, and yet the film only manages to evoke mixed reactions.[71] Satya Kandala who gives the film 3 (out of 5 stars) in his review, stated " Tamasha fall short of true greatness is Ali's indulgence with the characters and situations, which at times makes the film look like it is trying too hard and a little too kitschy." [72] However, the film received a rating of 7.2/10 on IMDb.

OverseasEdit

Andy Webster for The New York Times emphasized reviewing the characters and the direction. In his review, he mentioned, "Imtiaz Ali actually celebrates two love affairs: Ved and Tara’s, and (given Ved’s universal adulation) with his own self-aggrandizing vision of his calling."[73] In her review for Gulf News, Manjusha Radhakrishnan wrote, "The lead actors and Corsica look picture-perfect, but the movie isn’t free of blemishes."[74] Sneha May Franics of Emirates 24/7 opined, "Imtiaz Ali's indulgent narrative isn’t quintessential Bollywood, and that’s not necessarily bad"[75] In a review for The Guardian, Mike McCahill wrote, "Imtiaz Ali’s film is a surprising meta-narrative of archetypal star-crossed lovers, but its cool tricksiness leaves little room for surrendering to the story."[76] Deepa Gauri of Khaleej Times awarded the film 4 out of 5 stars and wrote, "Tamasha is un-Bollywood in its rhythm and pace, yet endears you with its essential simplicity."[77] Lisa Tsering of The Hollywood Reporter stated, "The film is a moving meditation on what it means to find out who you really are."[78] In his review for The Express Tribune, Rafay Mahmood gave the film 2.5 stars out of 5, stating: "Great music, exceptional performances and a different take on love don't prevent Imtiaz Ali's Tamasha from culminating in a disappointment."[79] Jay Seaver of Online Film Critics Society noted, "So it's a little bit bigger than a romantic comedy, although still enough of one that the story of a guy finding what he wants to be doesn't overwhelm it. It's not a perfect film, but it's consistently a bit better than expected."[80] Giving the film 2.5 stars out of 5, Mohaiminul Islam's review in The Daily Star opined, "This is Ali's most complex story, teeming with ideas, and gives us Ranbir back again, along with the lovely Deepika, even if the plot keeps losing sight of her."[81]
