Dekh Tamasha Dekh Hindi Movie Reviews

Ratings:3.5/5 Review By: Anupama Chopra Site:Star World (Hindustan Times)

Dekh Tamasha Dekh, Feroz Abbas Khan’s second film, took me unawares. The political satire, set in a small Maharashtrian village, shifts gears from black comedy to tragedy and back again so rapidly that you find yourself smiling and being sickened all at once. Dekh Tamasha Dekh offers a combination of farcical, funny and depressing. How many movies can you say that for? I’m going with three and a half stars.

‘DTD’ is disturbing, thought-provoking and humorously tragic. It deals with our society’s paradoxical concepts of religious identity and humanity. It dramatically reflects our nation’s mindless beliefs in political propaganda without a perspective and media’s often misplaced priorities. There are intelligently written scenes (courtroom debate), some brilliant dialogues and good performances (Kaushik, Azmi, Yadav). However, the film often rolls out like a play or a social commentary with staged events (often over-stretched) that result in an abrupt narrative.

Feroz Abbas Khan’s direction is sensitive but, like the script, it would be appreciated more by the festival circuit audience than by common film buffs. On the whole, Dekh Tamasha Dekhis a satire devoid of commercial ingredients. It will go as it has come – unnoticed. Flop!

Although the storyteller does away with the background score, giving the film a realistic feel, the film could’ve done with a tighter edit in order to make the film more in sync with the storyline. The cinematic grammar of the film stays intact as far as the dialogue are concerned. The writer [Shafaat Khan] deserves accolades for bringing out the reality of politicians and their opportunistic politics in a light-hearted manner.  With a run time of just about 100 minutes, DEKH TAMASHA DEKH is indeed watchable.

Ratings:3/5 Review By: Rahul Desai Site:Mumbai Mirror

The admirable part about this cleverly-mounted liberal dialogue is that despite its mid-90s setup, this film refuses to take sides. Khan tries too hard to stick to a multi-tracked parallel setup though, and perhaps loses out due to the absence of a sole protagonist. At times, he tilts towards an idealistic newly-transferred cop, but stops short of giving him a voice. Still, this unfamiliar balanced treatment only adds to its topicality today, at this moment, in a country on the verge of a fierce political revolution.

Khan’s film gets into theatrical territory every once in a while, but there is no denying its terrifying power. He pulls no punches, and paints extremism from both sides equally black. This is an important film, and I do hope it gets seen widely, timely and topical as it is in the time of Muzzafarnagar, misguided mullahs and modified bhakts.

Dekh Tamasha Dekh speaks bluntly about real people and the motives behind their actions without mincing words. Nobody’s a villain here, but all of us are facing different circumstances — like the editor who changes his ideology the moment his job is in jeopardy, or an otherwise dutiful son who walks out on his mother merely because he hears rumours about her ‘loose character’. A rare film that treats its audience as intelligent enough to understand the nuances of the subject that it deals with. You may squirm in your seats as the harsh truth is served in a cold plate. Even so, go watch it because the truth always stays longer with you.

Ratings:1.5/5 Review By: Sonia Chopra Site: Sify

The performances are earnest and heartfelt but let down by the film itself. The story’s developments are often unexplained and characters have a transformation without warning. Technically, the film has a dated look and feel. Neither a biting enough political satire, nor a moving drama— Dekh Tamasha Dekh hangs precariously in-between. You understand the intention, you even connect with a few scenes, but overall the film is dismal. Avoidable.
