Tamasha Live Marathi Movie Review –
Sonalee Kulkarni and Sachit Patil’s Tamasha Live exposes the mainstream Indian media and the TV debates are nothing more than noise. Sanjay Jadhav’s Tamasha Live is actually a musical journey that unfolds through the events surrounding the death of a young dancer, which seems like a suicide.
The film revolves around two journalists who will resort to anything to keep their respective channels on top of the TRP charts. This wouldn’t have been a big issue if the writer had put more effort into creating an engaging screenplay that not only gives us a clear picture of how journalists work in India right now.
Ashwin is a popular news anchor whose claim to fame is his news debate. The Shefali (Sonali Kulkarni) aspires to be a star reporter like her idol Ashwin (Sachit Patil). After being humiliated by Ashwin, Shefali decides to dethrone him and gets a chance when a struggling actress’s body is found on the road.
The idea of using songs and music to take the story forward is very unique. Tamasha Live deserves appreciation for its concept. While the concept is spot on, the film does not manage to grab your attention. The transition between songs and scenes is remarkable. With such a huge ensemble cast, there is bound to be limited screen time for all the actors. Sonalee Kulkarni and Sachit Patil shine in scenes and is consistent, but fails in others.
The supporting cast doesn’t have much to do. Siddharth Jadhav and Hemangi Kavi are storytellers who are there only to outline what is happening on screen. both the actors give it their all and their performance is the highlight of Tamasha Live.
Special mention for the concept of the film. The film has a one-time watch for the unique concept and some clever lines that hit the mark, ending up as a story with good potential and average execution.
