5 Reasons to Not Miss ‘Ram Prasad ki Tehrvi ‘ Releasing on Netflix Tomorrow
1. A Seema Pahwa’s Directorial Debut
Seema Pahwa, an Indian actress and now a filmmaker has for the first time, attempted to make a film, and let’s just acknowledge that she has nailed the art of direction in every bit. Pahwa started her career with the serial, Hum log for the very first time and since then, she has given some of the greatest acting performances including her performance in Bareilly Ki Barfi (2017) and Shubh Mangal Saavdhan (2017) for which she was even nominated for the Filmfare Awards. The actress has not tried her hands-on filmmaking and that is a fair enough reason why you should be watching the film.
2. A spellbinding star cast
The poster of the film itself holds so many known faces that if not for the love of one character, or maybe for the other, you need to watch the film. The film casts Naseeruddin Shah, Konkona Sen Sharma, Vinay Pathak, Vikrant Massey, Vineet Kumar, Manoj Pahwa, Parambrata Chattopadhyay, Supriya Pathak, Deepika Amin, Ninad Kamat, Brijendra Kala, Parambrata Chatterjee, and many others. And performances of each one of them are equally interesting and heartwarming.
3. Premiered at MAMI
Ram Prasad ki Tehrvi was screened at MAMI (Mumbai Film Festival), which is considered one of the finest film festivals in India. It was the 21st Jio MAMI when the film was first premiered and since then, it has had its hype developed. Now, since it is coming on Netflix tomorrow, i. e. 31st March, there is no reason for one should miss watching it.
4. A Crisp Script and story
Ram Prasad ki Tehrvi is a personal film with the most organic approach. The film is based on the play ‘Pind Daan’ which itself was written by Pawha. The film is not really about the family mourning Ramprasad’s Death but a mirror to our families and the underlying politics even with the close family member. And that’s how it becomes extremely personal in approach.
5. A Taste of Life Film that will leave you with questions, hope and life
The film can comfortably land in the dark comedy genre within which, Death can be seen as a tabooed yet dark incident of its own. This film has intricate moments when you can question yourself as a human, as a person in your family or might question your family dynamics too. But as it ends, it will make you see the brighter side and fill you with life and hope.
