Tamasha narrates a story of internal conflict. It is about two individuals, who meet while on a holiday and decide to make-pretend during the trip, but problems erupt when they return to their real life. Largely, the movie is the love saga of a storyteller who rediscover himself thanks to the woman he loves.
