Renowned lensman all praise for Ranbir, Deepika

Tamasha is a romantic movie and you will see young, fresh and urban looking Ranbir and Deepika
A famous line, ‘Vellayaa Irukkiravan Poi Solla Maattan,’ from one of comedian Vadivelu’s films is now the title of a new movie which is being co-produced by ace cinematographer-filmmaker Ravi Verman.
The director, who is quite busy with Bollywood flicks, is making a comeback to Tamil after a long hiatus after he did camera work for Vijay’s Villu, says, “Vellaya Irukkiravan Poi Solla Maattan (meaning fair skinned people don't lie) is colloquial phrase used in rural areas. Actually, it is a serious film narrated in a humorous way.”
Ravi who is teaming up with Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone for the second time, in Tamasha, couldn’t stop raving about them. “Both are thorough professionals. With them, a friendly atmosphere prevails on the sets, which makes work much easier. I worked with Ranbir in Barfi and we share a warm relationship. When it comes to acting, he is very frank and you simply can’t butter him. He expects us to inform him if anything goes wrong while canning a shot. He will rehearse once more and come back for his shot. He is an excellent actor.” Heaping praise on Deepika with whom he collaborated in Ram Leela he says, “I could see Deepika’s extraordinary transformation from Ram Leela to Tamasha.”
Though he was tight-lipped about the film's storyline all he said was, “Tamasha is a romantic movie and you will see young, fresh and urban looking Ranbir and Deepika. They have both lived in their respective characters.”
Tamasha has been shot in Corsica, France, Delhi and Shimla. Apparently, Imtiaz Ali shot the film while it was extremely cold in all the three regions. Ravi adds, “As a cameraman, the beautiful climate helped me create a visual splendour.” We couldn’t help but ask about his next venture, which is said to be with Mani Ratnam. (Laughs) “Preliminary talks are going on. Nothing has been finalised yet” he concluded.
