Movie Reviews: ‘Tanhaji‘
Ajay Devgn’s most ambitious project ‘Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior’ has been creating waves at the box-office ever since its release. The historic saga also marks Ajay Devgn’s 100th film in Bollywood, making it even more special for the actor.
After a record-breaking collection on the very first day of its release, there has been no looking back for the Ajay Devgn, Kajol and Saif Ali Khan starrer. According to the latest reports in BoxofficeIndia, the Om Raut directorial grossed Rs 6.75 crore at the box-office on its second Thursday.
The total collection of the film in its second week has been Rs 77 crore, making it the 8th highest second week of all times and the highest in the last two years outside Ranbir Kapoor’s ‘Sanju’ and Shahid Kapoor’s ‘Kabir Singh’. The period drama released on January 10, 2020. It released with filmmaker Meghna Gulzar’s ‘Chhapaak’ starring Deepika Padukone.
“Teri mitti jazbaat se judi hai aur meri akkal paani se, Tu Jaan de sakta hai aur mein jaan le sakta hoon,” smirks Udyabhan (Saif Ali Khan) to an injured Tanhaji (Ajay Devgn) who is held captive on the Kondhana fort. But as he turns his back to Tanhaji, the smile disappears and is replaced with an unquenchable thirst for win.
Om Raut’s period action drama, Tanhaji: The Unseen Warrior explores the dynamics between these two characters in an engaging way. Recreating pages from history on the big screen is no easy feat but director Om Raut pulls off this job with a certain ease.
He has a firm grip over the emotions and actions in the narrative and makes sure that you enjoy every moment in the film.
