The sign of a great sporting film’s is to hold the interest of an audience even those are not sport enthusiast. This review is written from the perspective of an ex-fan of cricket prior to the time that the politics and overkill in that Indian Premier League (IPL) time period made me turn off cricket completely.
Kaun Pravin Tambe Movie Review
Kaun Pravin Tambe? is based on the inspirational true story of Maharashtra-born Tambe who was never a player in first-class cricket. He had tried to make an Ranji selection for years prior to getting picked at age 41, by Rajasthan Royals in the IPL which is the most prestigious cricket platform to date and then progressing into the Ranji stage as well. It’s an inspiring story of determination, love for the sport and an unwavering determination to pursue dreams.
This latter is the theme chosen for the week’s second Hindi films, “Sharmaji Namkeen,” which starred actor Rishi Kapoor. In the film, however the protagonist is an old man who resists retreating into a life of domesticity or inactivity after being fired from his long-running job. Kaun Pravin Tambe? is the tale of a young man who’s adventures prove that dreams can come true in ways that even a fantasy fiction writer could ever imagine.
Tambe’s pathway to a successful career as a cricketer No major life-changing tragedy or even death, just the ordinary life. Sometimes, his inability to concentrate is the biggest obstacle or, in other instances, his own self-defeating actions. It is usually the necessity of sustaining his family in a socioeconomic environment that puts little importance on extracurricular activities and, to be honest they are not able to afford them — unless they result in the possibility of a job.
These aspects, in conjunction with director Jayprad’s slice-of-tonestyle, the gentle style of writing favored by Kiran Yadnyopavit (story and screenplay) and Kapil Sawant (dialogues) and editor Gorakshnath Khande’s deft hand make for an engaging, absorbing drama that has a sense of humor in surprising places.
The character will be introduced the film Kaun Pravin Tambe? by the real Rahul Dravid, before the reins are transferred to journalist Rajat Sanyal (Parambrata Chatterjee) as Narrator. The conflict in the relationship between Tambe (Shreyas Talpade) and Sanyal is a naive part of the script with Sanyal’s final monologue suggesting that the script’s writers realized that at some point they realized how unsolvable the conflict was. Sanyal’s appearance is another of the film’s nebulous elements – a pathetic (and uninteresting) comedy that revolves around a man’s request to dress in a different way in the event of losing bets.
Shreyas Talpade in Kaun Pravin Tambe?
The majority of the time, Kaun Pravin Tambe? matter-of-factly recounts the challenges of a middle-class person and his constant, uncompromising determination to play just to play.
There are few Indian performers are suited to play Tambe’s biopic than the Hindi-Marathi superstar Talpade who first caught national attention for playing the deaf-mute player in Nagesh Kukunoor’s modestly stunning Iqbal (2005, Hindi). In his 40s, now in his late 40s Talpade’s youthful frame and appearance suggest his age. His measured emotional reactions to the circumstances of Tambe’s life blend with the realistic style of the director. Tambe also plays the role of an all-rounder in the film’s well-cut and directed cricket games, expertly captured and edited by DoP Sudhir Palsane.
Look what’s Twitter fan Says
In a cast that is populated with a few remarkably consistent actors, Anjali Patil and Chhaya Kadam as Tambe’s wife, and mother are notable for not straying from worried relatives to stereotypically portraying as nagging characters for one second. Additionally, Ashish Vidyarthi is a low-key but impressive portrayal as Tambe’s trainer Vidyadhar Paradkar.
Financial constraints aren’t humorous However, director Desai is able to make a joke out of situations without having to laugh at those who are trapped in the same situation.
It’s not to suggest it is the case that Kaun Pravin Tambe? isn’t prone to slip-ups or other instances that warrant an eye roll as did the cross-dressing sequence. Not at all. In some instances the film will show the appearance of naivety (such as an entire group of boys pointing towards one kid to remove a cricket ball of what appears to be an unclean drain) or an obnoxiousness (awkward English language commentary in the last). Attention to detail is beautiful but these brief moments are a source of irritation in a movie that gets everything else right.

Kaun Pravin Tambe? Additionally, Tambe has evaded a major change in the career of Tambe which, as one publication reported in 2020 was the end of his fairytale run. In all honesty, being open about it wouldn’t hindered the story of this biographical person who has an unstoppable and even irresistible love for his sport.
It’s a great moment to be watching sports films in India because Kaun Pravin Tambe? is released on the small screen just a few months after Kabir Khan’s amazing 83 hit theaters. I’m not going to compare with the two films however it’s an absolute fact that when you’re least prepared the moment that Tambe is finally able to make it happen and the director decides to present it as it is, and not resort to drum beats that are loud and a scream, I couldn’t keep my tears from falling.
Tambe is in a way an ardent gambler, whose determination would be judged differently based on the result. If a friend confronts him about his determination, he responds by saying, “Either you are great or you are crazy” He responds with ” Agar successful ho gaya toh great , nahin toh paagal” (literally that If I am success, it means I’m awesome but if not then I’m insane).” It’s a sweet and bittersweet story that had to be told and Jayprad conveys the story well.
