“Panga” Review: Endearing Performances & Quick-Witted Script Make Panga A Breezy Watch

Mohnish Singh |Jan 25, 2020

“Panga” stars Kangana Ranaut in the lead role. Jassie Gill, Richa Chadha and Neena Gupta also play important characters in the movie.

Panga has been in news ever since Kangana Ranaut came onboard to play the female lead. The movie has been directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari, a filmmaker who proved her mettle with such heart-touching films as Nil Battey Sannata (2016) and Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017). Panga is her third directorial offering and her first project with National Film Award-winning actress Kangana Ranaut. If you are planning to catch the film this weekend, here is the review you need to go through before booking your tickets.

Story: Jaya Nigam (Kangana Ranaut) was the captain of the Indian Kabaddi team, when she left her glorious career behind to raise her son having a weak immune system. She currently works in Northern Railways and is married to Railway engineer Prashant Shrivastava (Jassi Gill). Seven years later, when her son comes to know about the great sacrifice that his mother made for him, he decides to push her to make a comeback, at the age of 32. Will Jaya manage to bounce back after staying away from the turf for so many years? Will she ever be able to play for the Indian Kabaddi team again? Watch the film to know this and much more.

Critical Analysis: Panga is a feel-good film which motivates you to overcome all obstacles in life and chase your unfulfilled dreams once again. The best part about the movie is its fluid writing. The writer-director Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari succeeds in creating a world which is thoroughly entertaining, convincing and, to a great extent, relatable.

Panga is a well observed and witty film powered by impeccable performances from the lead as well as the supporting cast. Kangana Ranaut looks unbelievably convincing in the role of Jaya Nigam. Her expressions are marvellous. You cannot imagine any other actress pulling off this character so effortlessly as Ranaut does. Jassi Gill as her helpful and understanding husband is terrific. He wins your heart with his ever-smiling face. Richa Chadha and child artist Yagna Bhasin are the real scene-stealers in the film. Whenever these two artists are there on the screen, you just cannot shift your attention from them even for a nano-second. They are just so powerful. Neena Gupta as a caring mother is good. It is so good to see her in characters that make her stand out even if there are only a few scenes filmed on them.

Final Verdict

Panga is inspiring and, at the same time, very entertaining. Its apt casting is the biggest highlight of the film, apart from strong writing. If you are lacking motivation in life, do watch this gem of a film to reenergize you. I am going with 4 stars.
