Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior Movie Review
|Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior Movie Review|
There is no doubt in Tanaji’s historicity, but little information is available about him in history. To make a two-and-a-half-hour film on him would certainly have to work very hard. What is the percentage of historical events in the film and how much imagination, it is difficult to say. Anyway, when a historical film is made, creative leeway is taken in it. And this is fine, too, unless the flag of history is blown off in the name of creative leeway. Looking at Tanaji, it seems that there is not much talk about it in the name of cinematic relaxation. The script has been worked on. The director and his team have been successful in creating Chhtrapati Shivaji’s time and atmosphere. The dialogues have power and are about to leave an impact in the minds of the audience. However, repeated mention of saffron and swaraj may strike some people. Om Raut’s direction is very good. He has coined all the characters including Tanaji very well. Some such that many characters make their impact despite getting less screen time. Such as Tanaji’s wife Parvati and Rajmata Jijabai. However, Udayabhan’s character is a bit more dramatic and there is no mention of Chhtrapati Shivaji’s Guru Samarth Ramdas Swamy in the film. Tanaji and Parvati’s love is also shown effectively in short scenes.
The film’s visual effects, graphics (VFX) are superb and action first class. It is fun to see. It will be more fun to watch the film in 3-D. When the spears and arrows are moving, the neck automatically turns to the right and left. The music of the film is filled with Veer Ras. The songs ‘Shankara Re Shankara‘ and ‘Maa Bhavani’ create excitement. Cinematography is good. The climax of the film evokes a feeling of pride and also emotional. Ajay Devgan’s work in Tanaji’s character is excellent. Though he appears ‘Singham’ somewhere, but overall he has given life to this character. Saif Ali Khan’s work as a villain is superb. He has instilled arrogance and cruelty in his character. Kajol’s role is small, but in this small role she leaves a big impact. Sharad Kelkar has been as effective as Shivaji, except for the inconsistency of stature and saddle. Padmavati Rao also influences. Neha Sharma’s work as Prince Kamala Devi is also fine. The work of Luke Kenny and the rest of the cast is also good. The casting of this film is very good.
The film tries to bring a page of history buried in the dust of time and bring it to the fore. It is a well-made film, which inspires.
