Pankaj Tripathi failed to entertain the audience

“Both of us are brave and leaders too”… This dialogue from the movie ‘Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga’, actor Pankaj Tripathi’s character Gangaram speaks in front of his villagers. But in the true sense, this also applies to the film. Because Pankaj tries to carry this film on his shoulders by himself. Despite his excellent performance, they fail due to the weakness of the script and the direction. The film is directed by Srijit Mukherjee who is a well known filmmaker of Bengali cinema. His movie ‘Shabash Mithu’ which is a biopic of cricketer Mithali Raj will also be released soon. The script, co-written by Sudip Nigam, Atul Kumar Rai and Srijit Mukherjee, is based on true events from the Pilibhit district of Uttar Pradesh. Despite this, the script fails to do justice to the interesting concept.

The movie ‘Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga’ is receiving mixed responses from critics and audiences. But most people seem disappointed after seeing the movie. Pankaj Tripathi is known to be the uncrowned king of the OTT world. His web series and movies have performed well on OTT. But his performance at the box office has never been great. I think this is the first film of him as a leading actor, which has been released in theaters. The idea of ​​presenting a character actor like him on the big screen by turning him into a hero seems misguided. He also played a lead role in the movie ‘Kaagaz’, but in view of his fans, the movie was only released on OTT. Therefore, the response to that film was very good. But ‘Sherdil’ is doing poorly at the box office. The movie hasn’t earned even a million rupees on the first day.

The film ‘Sherdil’ is Pankaj Tripathi’s first such film to be released in theaters, in which he has the lead role.

Senior film journalist Pankaj Shukla writes about the film ‘Sherdil’: “Pankaj is a weak film based on the magic of Tripathi. The most disappointed of this has been made by Srijit Mukherjee. The film that Srijit has written with his colleagues and the The way he has shot it is the weakest link in this film. The film’s greatest weakness, which falls entirely on Pankaj Tripathi’s shoulders, is the excessive anticipation on his part. Pankaj is a capable artist, no doubt , but his acting also has its limits. He is an actor linked to a certain circle. He is called the superstar of OTT. The very idea of ​​releasing his only film in the cinema messes up the arithmetic of the business, the film that is made from she is also very cumbersome This weekend, if you have to go to theaters to see a new movie, then director Raj Mehta’s movie ‘Jug Jug Jio’ is a better choice.

Madhuri writes for the filmbeat website: “Luck can sometimes turn even an ordinary man into an extraordinary one… Through this voiceover, Sreejit Mukherjee introduces us to the world of the movie Sherdil. But sadly, a film based on an extraordinary concept would be executed so poorly that no one could have imagined.Inspired by true events that happened in the Pilibhit tiger reserve in UP, near the India-Nepal border, Shreejit Mukherjee’s Sherdil is an idea solid on paper. But there has been a mistake on the part of the creators to bring it to the big screen. That is to say that the story of the film is unmatched, true, but its script and its shooting work has not been done honestly. Pankaj Tripathi has also failed to show variety in his acting.Neeraj Kabi’s character is very loud.The film is not worth seeing in theaters.

Film journalist Neha Verma writes: “The film Sherdil, directed by Srijit Mukherjee, seems to be confused in some respects. Due to the very loose writing, the important message of the film does not come through properly. The first half is too slow. film, made on the lines of a story, has been forcibly stretched. It could have been shortened and made more crisp. Talking to himself while wandering in the woods bores Pankaj Tripathi in many places. Somewhere his acting has also taken place At the same time, Neeraj Kabi’s entrance in the second half and her dialogue with Pankaj raises the emotion.During all this conversation, an underlying message about religion, poverty, current political situation and nature has been tried to be conveyed. The strong part of the film is its cinematography. Tiyash Sen has captured the jungle very well. The film needed a lot of adjustment. Shantanu Moitra’s music department has done their t work better than expected. The four songs not only give you life lessons, but are also melodious.

On NBT, Rekha Khan wrote: “As a writer and director, Shrijit Mukherjee spends a lot of time establishing the story and characters in the first half. The theme of poverty and the environment could have been better textured. But they have raised many sensitive issues in the film, how over the years humans have been encroaching on the animal world, as a result of which the animal has been forced to create havoc in the fields and lives of humans. movie scene is seen revealing the schemes of the government.The movie also focuses on the theme of how humans have become more greedy than animals.The movie also touches on aspects like politics, satyr and philosophy through dialogues, but at one point these sermons begin to appear. It would have been better if the writer and director had firmly shown the brutality of the town’s poverty. But yes, in a matter of music it will be necessary to e lodge the movie After a long time, the philosophy of Sant Kabir and Gulzar in Hindi cinema seems to carry the story forward.

Overall, it can be said with certainty that if the movie ‘Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga’ was released on this platform after doing so according to the OTT audience, it might have been successful. Since Pankaj Tripathi is the OTT audience’s favorite star, people would have taken his film by the hand. The decision to release in theaters has turned out to be wrong. Pankaj Tripathi should also avoid playing to that advantage, so that his USP is not in jeopardy.
