All the world’s a Tamasha

 

img_20170203_175304 It’s almost an year and I still just can’t get over Tamasha!What a gorgeous piece of art.Loaded with subtle meanings and between the lines motifs.Haye!A lot of people don’t like the movie but this post does not serve to slut shame them ( even though you should be ashamed.Ya nasty! 😂).This post is specifically about the song Matargashti.

Matargashti has Ved and Tara frolicking on the streets of Corsica.Here are some stills from the song:

Ved: Hey these drugs work! Everything’s blur! Tara: No its just Maham’s shitty screenshots.

Tara: My back hurts! Ved : Buddhi aurat.

I m the king of Bollywood Nepotism! Crowd:Oh yes! you are!

Besides the realization of your poverty what else does occurs in each and every still ? This flag:

Corsica has been struggling for Independence from Spain for quite some time now and this symbol of their movement is scattered throughout the song.Gaining Independence to be yourself  and embracing freedom are the central themes of Tamasha .There has been a lot of speculation about the director choosing this particular destination so I guess this fits with the narrative as to why Corsica holds such a pivotal place in story.It’s not a just a location but a silent character in the movie bringing Ved and Tara together with its magic..I think somewheres Mr Imtiaz Ali is laughing at us lesser mortals.

I should really stop focusing so much time on wall hangings and spare some of the time to my textbooks   😂😂😂
