#Tamasha(Hindi) Rating: * *1/2 Oblique fairy-tale. A flighty, fanciful romance that never touches ground reality –even while it’s supposed to be about getting in touch with your true self. #ImtiazAli’s attempt to serenade the audience with yet another facet of romance and heart-break falls flat. But #RanbirKapoor and #DeepikaPadukone’s performances and achy chemistry keep you ensnared..just-a-bouts.          #SpicePR #ImtiazAli #SajidNadiadwala #NadiadwalaGrandsonEntertainmentPvtLtd #RanbirKapoor #DeepikaPadukone #ARRahman #UTVMotionPictures #RaviVarmanISC #IrshadKamil #Acropolis #DilipSubramaniam #MukeshChhabbraCSA #AkiNarula ##AnaitaShroffAdajania #TSeries Runtime: 139 mins

#Creed(English) Rating: * * * Taking the ‘Rocky’ series to younger fresher ground, this sports(Boxing), new-gen Studio movie spin-off uses nostalgia to power-up yet another long-drawn success story. It’s a mainstream formulaic effort and expends excessive runtime to eke out a bond between a former great Rocky Balboa and a young upstart wannabe Adonis(Donnie) Creed. With both talking in monosyllables and without much expression it’s quite a hard nut to crack. You need a lot of patience to get to the payoff here. Despite the melodrama and the fantasy fulfillment plotting, it’s fairly worthy. #WarnerBros #SylvesterStallone #MichaelBJordan #PhyliciaRashad #TonyBellew #AndreWard #RitchieCoster #GrahamMcTavish #WoodHarris #BrianAnthonyWilson #RyanCoogler #IrwinWinkler #RobertChartoff #CharlesWinkler #WilliamChartoff #DavidWinkler #KevinKingTempleton Runtime: 122 mins

Director: Imtiaz Ali
Rating: * * ½
Runtime: 139 mins

Tamasha के लिए चित्र परिणाम
While the opening credits are on. the audience is subjected to a pantomime act between a clown and a robot and then comes the blending of the past into the present in a series of shots that take us back in time to Shimla where Ved(Ranbir kapoor) was born and brought-up. The younger Ved(charmingly essayed by Ranbir’s nephew- sister Riddhima’s son) is fascinated by the local story-teller , creeping out of his house, against orders from his father, to immerse himself in the fictional lives of his heroes and heroines. Juxtaposed against this backdrop is his adulthood, a product of responsibilities, expectations, parental straight jacketing and worldly cares, seeking relief  in a holiday in Corsica ,France , where he allows himself the levity of living a dream. There he isfree to be flamboyant, do the Dev Anand step and serenade a girl , Tara(Deepika), the old-fashioned way without really revealing his identity. In fact that’s a promise they make to themselves when they meet. How convenient you might think and I did too. But Imtiaz Ali has a thing or two up his sleeve.

The onscreen twosome have a fab time living in fool’s paradise and once they get back to their ordinary lives, it’s the same boring routine all over again.  Ved is a product manager in a large firm while Tara has a similar sounding  high-faluting  job. It takes them four years to meet-up again – but this time it’s as their designated selves. The chemistry is the same, they fall in love all over again and Ved is just readying himself to propose when Tara decides to back-foot. Till then the pace is slow but the visuals are emblematic and the plotting has  a lazy, unhurried air to it.

Once Tara back-foots, the fault-lines begin to appear. Why did she take so long to realize that the Ved she’s been living it up with is not the Don of her heart? Ved is of course not amused. He is hurt but doesn’t wear it on his sleeve. He prefers to grin and bear it. Gets back to routine life till a chance meeting with n auto-driver triggers his deeply suppressed yearnings once again. Needless to say, he finds his true self and love all in one final salvo.
While both Ranbir and Deepika appear to be enjoying themselves playacting through the foreign locales, it’s when they revert back to earth, that they make for sublimity  and connect. Their performances feed off each other and both are a joy to behold. While Ved’s transformation gets justified fashionably , towards the end, Tara’s expectation appears to be a lark. It comes out of nowhere and doesn’t even play out realistically. Imtiaz wanted Tara to be the reason for Ved’s transformation but a hackneyed ideology doesn’t seem reason enough.

The script appears unfinished and lacks clear-cut definition even as it achieves it’s flaky goals of finding one’s true self and the usual happily ever after. Unfortunately it’s fragmented and non-riveting in approach. While the initial bit of romance plays out breezily the contrived dramatics and the eventual coming together doesn’t really satisfy. There’s not much clarity in perception here either. Ved wants to be a storyteller but what profession is that? As depicted on screen he appears to be a pantomime artist, a dance ballet sutradhar or tells people stories in groups. Doesn’t seem like a paying profession that one can bank on. So even if he is following his dreams where is it going to lead to? But the main problem with the film are it’s characters. While Ved is just about believable, Tara is not  and Ved’s father(Javed Sheikh)’s sudden turnaround also seems unlikely. Even A.R. Rahman’s music lacks distinctiveness while Irshad kamil’s lyrics are imminently forgettable.

 Other than the two expressive lead performers and some sublime make-believe moments of romance augmented visually by Ravi Varman’s magnificently textured  lensing,  there’s not much here to engage you. Given that Imtiaz Ali is good friend to both the principal players who were former lovers in real life with an ugly break-up to contend with, it does seem like this entire effort was undertaken to give them some sense of closure. Can’t figure out why he needed to make a film for that though. Convoluted reasoning anyone?
