How many times did we ask our mothers about their dreams or wishes that they had to sacrifice because of us? Well, we are sure none of us ever thought of doing that. Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari’s Panga talks about a woman who at the age of 32 decides to fulfill her dream.

The movie revolves around Jaya (Kangana Ranaut), Prashant (Jassie Gill) and Adi (Yagya Bhasin). They are a perfect family, but one thing always hurts Jaya that after delivering a child she failed to continue playing Kabaddi. Once her son comes to know that Kabaddi is her mother’s dream, he pushes her to make a comeback in the game. How Jaya makes a comeback and what struggle the family goes through, takes the story forward…

The movie is written by Nikhil Mehrotra, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari and Nitesh Tiwari (additional screenplay and dialogues). They have done a wonderful job with the writing. The story is good, the screenplay is refreshing and the dialogues are just superb. The one-liners are so good that you will laugh out loud. The movie will make you smile, laugh, get tears in your eyes and most importantly inspire you to fulfill your dreams.

After Nil Battey Sannata and Bareilly Ki Barfi, Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari has now directed Panga. Well, Nil Battey Sannata was a fantastic film, and though Bareilly Ki Barfi wasn’t a great watch, it was a decent movie. Now with Panga, Tiwari proves that she is one of the best directors we have in the industry. She has narrated the film beautifully. She gets the perfect amount drama and emotions in the film. The Kabaddi matches are also very well narrated; you will feel an adrenaline rush while watching it on the big screen.

Talking about performances, Kangana Ranaut has been surprising us with her each and every film and Panga is not an exception. She has once again given an award-winning performance. She is perfect as Jaya and we can’t imagine any other actress in this role. Jassie Gill as Jaya’s husband, Prashant, looks damn cute and has performed very well. We are sure after watching the film every girl will wish to have a husband like Prashant. The child artist Yagya Bhasin is fantastic in the film. He has been given some wonderful dialogues and he is a show-stealer. Richa Chadha is simply outstanding in the film and Neena Gupta impresses us.

The music of the film is quite good and you will be humming the title track while leaving the theatre.

Overall, Panga is an entertaining as well as very inspiring film. It’s a perfect tribute to all the mothers.
