Tanhaji : The Unsung Warrior Movie Review

From past few years, B-Town is giving us some great historical movies which are being appreciated by everyone and, now again the most anticipated film of the year, Tanhaji: The Unsung Warrior has released.

This film is based on the life of Maratha warrior Tanaji Malusare , who was the Subedar in the army of Maratha king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. This Om Raut directorial starring Kajol, Ajay Devgn and Saif Ali Khan is set in the 17th century when Aurangzeb was ruling the Northern parts of India. It is about the Battle of Sinhagarh, which took place between the Maratha army led by Tanaji Malusare and Mughal fortkeeper Udaybhan Singh. The entire movie is packed with lots of emotions, drama, action and thrill.

It is Ajay Devgn’s 100th film and Kajol is reuniting with him almost after a decade on the screen. The actress is seen playing Tanaji's (Ajay Devgn) wife Savitribai Malusare. Kajol's Savitribai is an 'adarsh' Maratha wife who stands with her husband in pain and in sorrow. Kajol’s role in the film is less than the other actors but her chemistry with hubby is quite refreshing to see.

The surprising part that most of the viewers have noticed is, Saif Ali Khan's unique Avatar as Udaybhan Singh. In his anti-hero avatar, Saif has proved his versatility. His character is evil and unpleasant but quite impressive because of his outstanding acting and, especially his killer expressions.

The film also has many twists and turns which will keep you intact to your seat till the end. Impressive dialogues exhorting Maratha masculinity is surely making Ajay Devgn looking like a hero. One of his most loved dialogues from the movie is, "Jis tarah mitti ke har kan main pahad hota hai, har beej main ek jungle, har talwar main ek sena, ussi tarah har ek Maratha main chhupa hai lakh Maratha."
