5 Years of Tamasha: How the Ranbir and Deepika starrer is a millennial film in more ways than one

It is 5 years of Tamasha, the story of Ved and Tara, but what makes it such a fan favourite amongst the millennials?

It is 5 years of Tamasha and the internet is an overwhelming place to be for any fan of the film. For someone who has her biases reserved for it, there sure seems to be a lot of things that set it apart. However, it enjoys a special fanbase of the millennials and the younger generation, which can be both good and bad.

If you come to think of it, the Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor starrer is a masterpiece in its own sense. While it does have the typical Imtiaz Ali flavour to it, it also has a lot more. For starters, something that the movie does preach is some unrealistic expectation on your trip abroad. (I kid you not, it is true!) However, that’s just one way to put it.

Something to add to everything, the major reasons are Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor’s performances. Both of them have pulled off the characters of Ved and Tara beautifully. One cannot imagine anyone else having done it better. While it is 5 years of Tamasha, Agar Tum Saath Ho is yet another reason for the love the movie has received.

Check out the song here:

Well, those were things that look all good and fun on the surface, but it is also a lot to do with the story. Ours is a generation that believes in trying extra hard but also giving up a little too soon, on love, only. For the rest of the things, we strive for the best, so much that we are blinded by the need for success.

None the less, there are a lot of paradoxes that exist in the movie. And that is indeed the best way to celebrate it as it marks 5 years of Tamasha. Deepika Padukone made us all sympathize with Tara, but for Ranbir Kapoor’s Ved, we had empathy. And if I were to say, that is exactly the paradox that lies.

Tamasha is a film that gets so many thinking, about so many things, and that’s quite the step up, always will be. Tamasha is possibly the DDLJ of the new generation, or may be not? (DDLJ fans, don’t kill us!) While I may not be a fan of the film, Tamasha, is indeed an emotion, and everything about it just adds to the love for it!

There is no such thing as enough of reading and writing, or so I believe. While everything else might cause saturation, words always come to the rescue. A writer for a major part of my life, I take things as they come, but not without a pen and paper.
