Must watch inspirational film
24 January 2020 | by tpatoliyaSee all my reviews

'I am a mother and the mother has no dreams.' Directed by Ashwini Iyer Tiwari, this dialogue of 'Panga' will find every woman who has forgotten her dreams for her family and children and has lost her identity.

The story is fantastic and you love it. Kangana has played the character of Jaya Nigam as Effortless and Flawless. Whether it is his dress or body language, every aspect makes his character memorable. Instead of doing melodrama in the emotional scenes, Kangana has made him live with the twinge that your eyes cannot remain moist. He has lived both aspects of housewife and kabaddi player.

Richa Chadha's acting acts as a relief in the film. His dialogue and body language are spoken in Bihari Accent entertain immensely. The chemistry between the scenes between him and Kangana is seen. Jassie Gill has a smooth acting role as a supportive husband. His pairing with Kangana looks good.

Despite limited scenes, Neena Gupta leaves her mark. Child artist Yagna Bhasin has proved to be the attraction of the film. They captivate everyone with their innocent performances.

The quality of Ashwini Iyer Tiwari as a director is that the nuances with which she portrayed the working woman of a small town like Bhopal and her middle-class family on the screen add strength to the story.

The film reiterates the idea that it is never quite too late to start chasing your dream -- which gives it instant winnability. Don't miss this film, it will give you the courage to revive your dreams.
