Thamaasha Review: very much delightful and relatable
Finding the real beauty in a human being is always a philosophy that people rarely applies in real life. The wonderful new comedy by director Ashraf Hamza, Thamaasha is one hilarious comedy that portrays this concept in the sweetest and warmest way possible. With so many real characters in the narrative, Thamaasha is delightful and relatable.
A college professor named Sreenivasan is our main protagonist. He is facing the issue of hair loss and that has significantly affected his self-confidence. The marriage proposals dried out because of this and Sreenivasan's own attempts failed to work. The film Thamaasha shows us some unprecedented events in Sreenivasan's life that help him in realizing the value of real beauty.
Relatability is the biggest factor that makes Thamaasha a fabulous movie. The inferiority complex of our hero is the major element of the screenplay here and the movie invests a good amount of time in showing us the various implications of that. The inability of this character to let go of his inhibitions and insecurities offers space for a lot of humor and it is such moments that make this movie all the sweeter. The second half of the movie breaks the conventional beauty concepts so effectively and the character of Chinnu will stay with us as a sign of positivity.
Vinay Forrt as Sreenivasan shows us how an actor can use dialogue delivery and body language to portray a very vulnerable and sensitive character. At no point in the movie, he makes the character a caricature. Chinnu Chandni who played the role of Chinnu in the movie is the most surprising find here. She makes her character feel so real in terms of the way she handles the situation. The reaction video to the body shaming will truly touch our hearts.Divya Prabha was good as Babitha teacher. Grace Antony, Arun Kurien, RJ Murugan, and several others are there in the elaborate and memorable star cast. But one guy who needs a special mention is Navas Vallikkunnu who owned that character of Raheem in the most heartening way.
Based on the Kannada movie ondu motteya kathe, Ashraf Hamza applies the realistic approach to create subtle humor. This is a kind of topic that demands such a treatment and I must say that the team has managed to attain that minimalism very beautifully. The ease with which the script flows from one situation to another is so amazing and we won't feel a chapter like feel in the rendition. Visuals by Sameer Thahir are simplistic and yet there is a warmth in it. Music was really good and the background score is extremely minimal.
Thamaasha is indeed that feel good movie. But the movie never follows a template structure and what it tries to address here is a pertinent subject in the most sensible ways possible. It's an amazingly warm and frequently funny film.
