Loss of life is a tragic phenomenon of life. However a number of movies in Bollywood have introduced this inevitability in a lighter and even in an outrageously humorous manner. For instance, JAANE BHI DO YAARO , EKKEES TOPPON KI SALAAMI , DADDY COOL , BUDDHA MAR GAYA , MALAMAAL WEEKLY , PUSHPAK , NEHLLE PE DEHLLA , and so on. Now Seema Pahwa’s directorial debut RAMPRASAD KI TEHRVI additionally guarantees to have a lightweight tackle loss of life. So does RAMPRASAD KI TEHRVI handle to entertain and impress viewers? Or does it fail in its endeavour? Let’s analyse.
RAMPRASAD KI TEHRVI is the story of a household assembling collectively after ages because of a tragedy. Ramprasad (Naseeruddin Shah) is an outdated aged patriarch who out of the blue passes away whereas educating piano at his home to a child within the neighbourhood. He resided together with his spouse, addressed as Amma (Supriya Pathak) by every body. Their little children reside in several components of the nation. Clearly all of them rush to Ramprasad’s mansion, positioned in a small home in Uttar Pradesh as quickly as they get the information. What ought to have been a interval of mourning for the household leads to chaos as previous wounds resurface. On high of that, Seema (Konkona Sen Sharma), spouse of the youngest son of Ramprasad, Nishant aka Neetu (Parambrata Chatterjee) doesn’t come. It results in gossip and hypothesis among the many wives of the opposite sons. In the meantime, since Ramprasad handed away on December 19, the pandit publicizes that the tehrvi will therefore fall on January 1. It results in an argument within the household as some really feel it will likely be awkward for folks to attend such a ceremony on the primary day of the 12 months. The problem resolves after which, one other drawback arises. Ramprasad’s youngsters come to know that the patriarch had opted for a mortgage of Rs. 10 lakhs and that he has returned solely Rs. three lakhs. It’s now their accountability to repay the remainder of the quantity. Whereas going via his diary, they arrive to know that he took the mentioned mortgage as his youngsters have been demanding cash from him. This revelation results in one other spherical of tu tu foremost foremost. In all this chaos, Amma feels not noted. The grandchildren in the meantime are least bothered concerning the loss of life of their grandfather and are having a enjoyable reunion. She realises that it will be troublesome for her to remain within the haveli on their lonesome. Even when she chooses to stick with their sons, plainly they will not be prepared to just accept her. What occurs subsequent varieties the remainder of the movie.
Seema Pahwa’s story is promising. The largest energy is that it’s very relatable. Everybody has been within the state of affairs depicted within the movie. Therefore, one can’t assist however relate very properly to loads of happenings within the movie. Seema Pahwa’s screenplay is nevertheless inconsistent. A number of scenes and confrontations are very properly considered and in addition fleshed out. On the flipside, the movie slips within the second half as essential particulars are not noted about some vital characters. Seema Pahwa’s dialogues are real looking and situational. Nevertheless, the humorous dialogues of Prakash Bade jija ji (Brijendra Kala) appear misplaced.
Seema Pahwa’s route is kind of neat within the first 30 minutes. The way in which she establishes the setting and the temper makes for an enticing watch. A few of the characters like that of Seema appear very fascinating and loads might have been finished right here. Nevertheless, one wonders why Seema Pahwa not noted the backstories of sure characters. That is particularly within the case of Seema’s character. One fails to know what precisely she did flawed with Neetu and his household. It’s not like she was the one daughter-in-law who stayed away from her in-laws. The remainder of the bahus additionally acquired separated from Ramprasad and Amma. Additionally, in the direction of the top, Seema’s change of coronary heart makes one really feel that she’ll ask Amma to stick with her. That’s what the build-up appeared like. When she doesn’t, one wonders why that’s so. In all probability, she had the identical points as different daughter-in-laws and was not able to take the accountability. However this bit ought to have been higher defined. In the meantime, Rahul (Vikrant Massey) lusting after Seema individually looks as if an ideal thought however appears a bit pressured. The ultimate scene is heartening however comes too out of the blue.
RAMPRASAD KI TEHRVI begins properly. No time is wasted as Ramprasad passes away within the first scene itself. From right here, it’s a breezy watch as all of the madcap characters arrive and create insanity. A number of scenes stand out just like the 4 brothers having drinks and expressing their long-suppressed anger. Additionally, the sequence the place Amma hides behind a pillar and sees that everybody is having a gala time whereas she’s mourning the demise of her husband could be very shifting. Publish-interval, the movie will get too critical. Many who would go for the movie after seeing the trailer and assuming that it’ll be a light-hearted movie can be in for a shock, or moderately, shock.
RAMPRASAD KI TEHRVI is laced with some tremendous performances. Naseeruddin Shah is reliable within the cameo. Supriya Pathak is one of the best a part of the lot. One can really feel the ache of her character. Konkona Sen Sharma is as anticipated fairly glorious however is let down by weak characterization. Parambrata Chatterjee delivers an ideal efficiency. Vikrant Massey is great. Vinay Pathak (Pankaj), Manoj Pahwa (Gajraj) and Ninad Kamat (Manoj) improve affect with the best way they’ve exceled of their respective roles. Sadiya Siddiqui (Pratibha), Divya Jagdale (Sulekha) and Deepika Amin (Sushma) additionally do properly however after a degree, their gossiping appears repetitive. Anubha Fatehpura (Rani; badi jiji) is convincing whereas Sarika Singh (Dhaani; choti jiji) is excellent within the scene the place she speaks to Amma at night time exterior. Manukriti Pahwa (Bitto; who falls for Rahul) is kind of full of life. Brijendra Kala, Sawan Tank (Samay), Neivan Ahuja (Saksham; neighbour), Shikant Verma (Basant Chote jija ji), Yamini Dass (Mami ji), Vineet Kumar (Mama ji), Rajendra Gupta (Tauji who spoke English) and Mahesh Sharma (Vinod, who was with Tauji) are first rate. Lastly, Sanah Kapur is kind of memorable because the youthful Amma.
Sagar Desai’s music is forgettable. ‘Ek Adhoora Kaam’ registers because it comes at an fascinating state of affairs. The remainder of the songs like ‘Jo Ghum Hua Hai’, ‘Aisa Hai Kyun’ and ‘Bulawaya Aaya Re’ don’t go away a mark. Sagar Desai’s background rating is delicate and properly woven with the narrative.
Sudip Sengupta’s cinematography deserves reward. There are a number of lengthy takes that are very properly captured by the lensman. Darshan Jalan and Manish Tiwari’s costumes and Parijat Poddar’s manufacturing design are straight out of life. Dipika Kalra’s enhancing is okay however one needs the flashback scenes of Seema and Nishant had acquired extra display presence
On the entire, RAMPRASAD KI TEHRVI has a really fascinating story to inform however fails to make the specified affect because of a really weak second half. The movie would face a troublesome time in cinemas and may have ideally launched straight on an OTT platform.
