How Tamasha evolved as a Cult Film

Helmed by Imtiaz Ali, Tamasha didn’t get it’s due at the time of the release. But this film starring Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone has now evolved as a meaningful piece of Cinema and we all know it, but why the film’s popularity raised among the masses after a long time from it’s release. The reason is that many youths were relating the film with their own life and many scenes truly did justice to reality. So here’s talking more about the film.

All of us, living in this era are well aware that we live a dual life. One which we live for others and the second one which is very intimate, which we have to hide from everyone around us and we preserve it only for ourselves, the one which we live individually, where no one’s seeing us. Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha shows us a mirror and makes us think about our real identity. Ved (Ranbir Kapoor) is just like all of us, afraid of seeing his real identity. Also he fears of the people who see within him and tries showing him a mirror to identify his true worth. Let’s get down to this most beautiful and heartwarming scene from the film, where Ved and Tara (Deepika Padukone) confronts each other after all the chaos their relationship had been through. At the cafe, Ved sees her passing by but hides and watches her and later haves a seat and pretends to be unaware. At the beginning only we get that Ved is trying to be artificial here.

As their conversation begins, Tara is the one who apologises to Ved, as she feels that she has hurt him. “Koi complex hoga tumhare andar jisko maine touch kar diya,” this dialogue proves that she’s now uncomfortable talking about the actual issue and making Ved aware of the reality. She’s there just to make up what she has ruined, she’s feeling guilty for no reason at all. Ved just don’t want to confront the reality and hence he goes crazy over Tara again. But also he’s not able to put a hold on his real image when he comes in front of Tara. Concluding to the point that Ved only lives his intimate part of the life when he’s with Tara. We all fear the people who see our real identity, and we are afraid to reveal it in front of everyone. But there’s always a person in our life who acts as a mirror to us. It can be any of our loved ones.
