3. Tamasha

We all wanted to visit Corsica after having seen the rustic beauty of the destination in Tamasha. It looked like a postcard-perfect place. Not many of us had a greater idea of Corsica before Tamasha and Imtiaz Ali introduced us to it. The movie encompasses the small-townish ambience in which lies the real charm. With all the Matargashti that Ranbir and Deepika indulge in, you'd really enjoy the uptown flavours of the quaint little Corsica!
