Heeramandi: An Over Thought Out Review

Kaun Pravin Tambe? Such A Delightful Movie

 A simple, straight forward journey of an athlete, who didn’t well, get to play much.

Of course, the story of Pravin Tambe is a class example of perseverance and dedication but talking strictly about the movie, I love the simplicity that is showcases. I am sure it stems from the fact that Tambe lead such a humble life, with just one goal in mind – play Ranji or win the Times Cricket Shield.

The chawl setup, the hardships of living a middle-class life, the constant struggle to find a job while still being dedicated to your dream is not easy, but Tambe did it really well.

The reason I liked the movie is because it is not super sentimental or emotional to make one feel Tambe’s pain. The movie instantly makes the audience connect with the protagonist and thus, it doesn’t need to cinematically make you emotional, the story does that job.

The movie gives a neat peek into the chawl life, and how a person struggles to find a stable job. The everyday grid is enough to stop people from pursuing their dreams, but not Tambe.

The one thing that I learned from Tambe via the movie is that smiling is always an option. At every downfall in his life, he would just smile and say ‘Sagla neet hoil’ (all shall be well).  

So, if you are in a mood to watch something inspirational and yet non emotional, this is a perfect watch.

You can watch it on Disney+ Hotstar
