Bollywood Queen Kangana Ranaut and Director: Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari have done an incredible job in Panga.
Here we are with the review of ‘Panga’ that made its box office debut on 24th January, 2020. Directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari with Kangana Ranaut in the lead role. It features Jassie Gill, Richa Chadha, Neena Gupta and Yagya Bhasin in the pivotal roles.
Talking about Panga’s plot. It is the story of an ideal family. Kangana Ranaut, Jassie Gill and Yagya Bhasin are one happy middle-class family leading a normal life. Panga shows the travel of Jaya (Kangana) from being a world kabaddi champion to a middle-class working woman to making a comeback to the game all with the support from her family and friends.
Jaya aka Kangana Ranaut makes a flawless and feminist entry by kicking her husband in sleep because once a kabaddi champion always a champion even while sleeping. Hubby Prashant doesn’t take an offense as he understands even when he is tired and wants a deep sleep. This middle-class family lives in Bhopal with their 7-year-old son played by Yagya Bhasin, who is a perfect amalgamation of his parents.
The best part of this Ashwiny directorial is that it shows women doing their job and not just talk about it. Jaya is a railway ticketing clerk and has instilled the behavior of a working woman who perfectly balances her personal and professional life. But once a sportswoman always a sportswoman. Deep inside her lies a desire to become a kabaddi champion.
Talking about the supportive Hubby aka Prashant. He is the most chill husband a woman can desire of. He’s a feminist in full form. He never questions his wife’s desires and lends front support to her every decision.
Panga is a heartwarming ode to motherhood. You must’ve heard a lot of mummies feeling guilty about going to work with the child at home. Kangana too at one moment calls herself a ‘cruel mother’ for giving preference to her career.
Kangana is a proven talent and Queen of Bollywood. She carries Panga on her shoulders who transforms from a mother to a kabaddi champion in a fraction of second. Jassie Gill aka Prashant despite being an amazing singer is a fabulous actor too.
And there’s more. Couple’s kid aka Yagya (Adi) is the one to watch out for. He’s always pressuring his mom to follow her dreams and make a comeback. He also makes his dad feel guilty for not deciding to take care of their child while mom made the country proud in Kabaddi. His dialogues are commendable. Nice writing.
Richa Chadha plays that selfless real friend. Playing Meenu, she’s a natural actor.
Coming to Neena Gupta, Kangana’s on-screen mom. She’s adorable but strict. She wants her daughter to credit her too and not just her husband whilst winning hearts with her comeback.
Director: Ashwiny ensures that each detail is taken care of. Like Kangana’s weight loss while she starts working out on her son’s insistence & we do get to see her body transformation eventually.
Panga is a worth watch.
