Tanhaji The Unsung Warrior Movie Review
Critic’s Rating: – 4.0/5
STORY: The film’s story traces the Biopic of the great Maratha warrior, Tanhaji Malusare, who was one of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj’s closest friend and a military leader. Basically, this movie focuses on the Battle of Sinhagad fought on February 4, 1670 which saw Tanhaji take on Udaybhan, a Rajput who fought for Aurangzeb against the Marathas.
REVIEW: Under the Treaty of Purandar, Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj (role played by Sharad Kelkar) surrendered 23 forts to Aurangzeb (whose role is played by Luke Kenny, including the Kondhana (now called as Sinhagad), which was of strategic importance. Rajmata Jijabai (role payed by Padmavati Rao) swore that she would walk bare feet till the fort of Kondhana is conquered by the Marathas.
Four years later, Aurangzeb sends Udaybhan (role played by Saif Ali Khan) with a huge number of army and a massive canon called ‘naagin’, to ensure that Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj can’t reclaim the fort. While Shivaji Maharaj plans a campaign, Shivaji doesn’t want to send his trusted friend and lieutenant Tanhaji Malusare on the battlefield, as he knows that it was quite difficult to defeat them. And at that time, Tanjhaji was busy in preparing for his son’s marriage. At the same time, Shivaji comes to Tanhaji and teld him about to meet Rajmata. Then, Tanhaji at the same time, he come to meet Rajmata.
Here, Rajmata asked Tanhaji to recapture and conquer the fort of Kondhana. Tanhja was a great warrier, he become ready to fight and capture the fort. When Tanhaji gets to know of the ‘mohim’ (campaign), he implores Shivaji Maharaj to give him an opportunity to win Kondhana. His wife, Savitribai (Kajol) proves to be his silent strength. Despite the evil intentions of some like Pisal (Ajinkya Deo), Tanhaji manages to make inroads into the fort that is considered impregnable. A fierce battle ensues where Tanhaji fights the deadly with Udaybhan. While the story is known, several creative liberties have been taken to capture the attention of the audience.
Ajay Devgn is in top form playing the braveheart Maratha warrior, Tanhaji, with all his might. He powers through with subtlety and restraint while keeping the patriotic passion high at all times. Kajol as Tanhaji’s strong and supportive wife, Savitribai, makes her limited screen time count with a convincing performance. Saif as Udaybhan overpowers; he brings out the brutality and devilish streak of his character with finesse and ferocity. In some moments of his evil madness, he actually adds a tinge of humour to the scene, while breaking into a sinister laugh himself. This is one of Saif’s most outstanding performances. Another high point of the film is the casting of the key characters. Sharad Kelkar as Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj looks the part and brings the required gravitas to the part of the warrior-king.
Director Om Raut shows a flair for storytelling in his debut Hindi movie. He maintains a firm grip on the film and balances the emotions and drama with tact. The ‘ghorpad’ (monitor lizard) angle, which is disputed by historians, has been given a twist in the movie. There is generous use of CGI, which is merged seamlessly in the narrative. It helps mount the film on a scale that it needed to create a solid impact. The action — and there is obviously a lot of sword fighting, slicing, dicing — is designed (by action director Ramazan Bulut) and shot skillfully and aesthetically and is a visual treat. While the film didn’t really need to be made in 3D format, some scenes do stand out.
‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ scores on various counts — superior performances, powerful action, visual impact, and most of all, it unfolds a story from the pages of history that deserved to be told, with just this kind of intensity, passion and vigour.
