- Star Cast: Ranbir Kapoor, Deepika Padukone
- Director: Imtiaz Ali
- Good Points: Obviously, the leading pair Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padkone shines throughout the movie as they amazingly portray the presence and absence of love in their unique way. The focus of the movie is its characters and several ways of dealing their inner conflicts.
- Bad Points: Though the caption of Tamasha is ‘Why Always The Same Story’, the director Imtiaz Ali cannot come of his signature style of storytelling as we have already seen in Jab We Met or Rockstar. Actually the director repeats the same thing without any elevation from his previous work that disappoints the viewers. As the film shows the dealing of love in the cryptic manner, it may not appeal to every type of audience. But it is certainly a one-time watch movie.
- Storyline : Tamasha has a non-linear storyline. At the beginning, we see young Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) who loves to listening stories from an old man in the calm evening sittign under the tree in Shimla. Though his father wants him to concentrate on his study, Ved always enjoys to stay in his own fantasy world.
Then the story proceeds to few years ahead when the viewers are taken to the scenic beauty of the location of Corsica, France where Ved meets Tara (Deepika Padukone). Seeing Tara in a problem, Ved volunteers to help her and then requests her to make their meeting as fictitious so that the reality will not ruin it. Therefore, Ved and Tara become Don and Mona Darling and enjoy a crazy trip together. Cupid attacks Tara first as she falls in love and leaves after their trip as Tara gives Ved a goodbye kiss.
Throughout the next four years, we see Tara as in still obsession with Ved and she imagines him everywhere to meet. Then the duo meets again and starts their dating in real. Then after spending time with him, she explores Ved as a different person all in all and hence rejects his engagement proposal.
Now what will be the ending of the story? Will it be a happy ending of Ved and Tara’s love or is there something else lying ahead?

- Star Performance: Both the actors- Ranbir and Deepika have performed outstanding. But for Ranbir’s part, the character is played down for the poor script. But he portrays the transition with full vigor. Deepika as Tara have done a fine job and through her acting, she excels in certain scenes in the movie.
- Music & Direction: The music of A R Rahman compliments the film perfectly and the placements of the songs are just apt. However, the director Imtiaz Ali portrays the film on the canvas with his full dexterity. The film is a visual treat as Corsica and Shimla are portrayed with their best natural beauty.
