10 Things We Learnt From Tamasha
So it got mixed reviews and everyone isn’t too sure about the film. We loved it! Not because Tamasha stars Ranbir and Deepika in the lead; or because Imtiaz Ali directed it, but primarily because it is a movie with a heart. A heart that may not be visible to everyone who watched it, but it is right there beating in every frame. Tamasha taught us several lessons about life; lessons that we carried out of the theatre with us and plan to live them out. We thought why not share few with you. Read on.
1You cannot run away from who you are. It will keep returning to you in ways you cannot imagine.
2Never kill your dreams! No matter how wild, illogical and impossible they may seem. If you dreamt them, you can go after them too.
3Love can happen anywhere! And usually when you are least prepared for it.
4Stopping trying to fit into the world the way it wants you to be; become what you want to be.
5Express yourself and the way you feel! It’s one of the main reasons we lose people in our lives. We don’t tell them how we feel about them.
6There are certain things only travelling can teach you.
7There is always scope to change the way you want to live out your life. Just because the past was terrible, doesn’t mean the entire life should be such.
8You are the author of your life’s story. NOBODY else!
9If s/he can celebrate who you are; s/he is the one
10Each of us needs somebody to bring us out of our problems and lead us on.
Tamasha isn’t just about boy meets girl in a foreign land and falls in love. It pushes you to think, to understand who you are and what is it that you are really after. Imtiaz Ali, you are a brilliant story teller.
