How often do we see stories of women on-screen, especially told by a woman? It is rare. What is even rarer is when the story is told right. In Tribhanga – Tedhi Medhi Crazy, writer-director Renuka Shahane, a well-known actor herself, attempts at making an emotional drama around three generations of women. But while the plot seem pitch-perfect, the narration falls short of expectations. Even the lead actors fumble while pushing the storyline forward.Tribhanga full Movie Download.
Tribhanga – Tedhi Medhi Crazy is essentially a story about a family; three women, their struggles and aspirations. Tanvi Azmi is Nayantara, an acclaimed writer and mother of Anuradha (enacted by Kajol). Anuradha, a Bollywood actor-dancer, is as complex and fierce as her mother and also a single mother. Mithali Palkar, who is playing Masha (Anuradha’s daughter), is different from the rest of the women in her family. She is a housewife who is willing to comprise on anything to have the “normal” life that she was deprived of.
The film however incorporates multiple elements – there is sexual assault, domestic violence, and professional aspirations – to justify the sour dynamics between the central characters. The intensity of the sensitive subject matters ends up weakening the otherwise sincere storyline.
The brilliant Tanvi Azmi holds your attention and Mithali is pleasantly present in the limited screen-time she has. It is however a dull Kunaal Roy Kapur and often artless Kajol who appear out of place.
Early on in the film, Kunaal Roy Kapur as Milan (a writer who is helping Nayantara on her autobiography), describes Anuradha as, “rude and stony-hearted.” What he misses adding is that she is also a tad bit irritating. 15 minutes into the movie, I was desperately waiting for a subtle Kajol. All her emotions seemed heightened, and in most parts, she appears to be trying too hard to be believable.
