‘Kaun Pravin Tambe?’ Movie Review: The extraordinary journey of cricketer

Hits: 3

It is a pleasant surprise to find a movie like Kaun Pravin Tambe?, which plays it smooth as it ties together a riveting narrative that is much more about dreary tenacity than funky accomplishment and staggering facts.

Kaun Pravin Tambe?, his first Hindi film and the second screen after the Marathi-language movie Nagrik by Director Jayprad Desai and scriptwriter Kiran Yadnyopavit (himself a renowned film director and actor) focus on a Mulund cricketer who invested the ideal years of his life slaving aside in Times Shield matches in the hopes of striking into the Mumbai Ranji Trophy team.

Storyline of the movie

Kaun Pravin Tambe?, is centered on the inspirational real story of Maharashtra-born Tambe, who had never managed to play first-class cricket and had spent years trying to get a Ranji acquisition before being chosen at the age of 41 by the Rajasthan Royals in the IPL, cricket’s most elevated forum today, and later making it to the Ranji stage as well. It’s a motivational story about overcoming adversity, a commitment to the game, and a refusal to give up on his dreams.

Tambe’s route to a cricketing future is not hampered by anything extreme life catastrophe, just life. His struggle to maintain is often his toughest obstacle, and other times it’s his own self-defeating actions. Mostly, it’s the need to economically take cBut, mostly his family in a socioeconomic environment that sets little value on extracurricular activities – and, to be honest, can’t afford to do so until they result in a job. Financial restraints aren’t amusing, yet director Desai knows how to make a situation humorous without mocking individuals who might be trapped in it.

Cast of the movie

These elements are associated with director Jayprad Desai’s primarily slice-of-tone style, writers Kiran Yadnyopavit (story and screenplay), Kapil Sawant (dialogues)’ light touch, and editor Gorakshnath Khande’s dexterity, resulting in an absorbing, interacting drama with a sense of humor in unlikely places.

Anjali Patil and Chhaya Kadam, who play Tambe’s wife and mother, respectively, stand out in a backing group full of impressively steady actresses for never crossing the line from worried relatives to clichéd categorization as nags. As Tambe’s coach, Vidyadhar Paradkar, Ashish Vidyarthi provides a low-key but memorable portrayal.
