Imtaz Ali’s (writer and director) “Tamasha” is all about finding your true purpose in life. Am I here just to fulfill my duty to my family or to society? Or do I have a duty to myself? Ali follows Ved Vardhan Sahni (Ranbir Kapoor) through three important stages of his life.
Not really interested in school, 9-year old Ved is obsessed with stories. All his free time and money is spent on an old storyteller who dispenses stories a half-and-hour at a time. The stories, a mix of the Mahabharata and Ramayana, Greek mythology, and the Bible, set Ved’s imagination on fire. When he returns home, he secretly re-enacts each character.
