Kaun Pravin Tambe? by Jayprad Desai may easily be written off if one were to nitpick. For those who continue, the film’s pleasant demeanour and soap opera-like stagecraft reveal a gem (without the glitter!) that’s just waiting to be discovered!
Pravin Tambe (Shreyas Talpade) closes the front door of his Mulund chawl apartment on the day he and brother Varoon Verma (Varoon Verma) get married in an exceptional 45-minute tracking shot. Tambe Sr. (Arun Nalawade) is seen straining with a knot in his pyjamas as the camera moves slightly to the left. It begs the question, “Why is the camera stuck here?” We’ll find out as the camera pans further to the left. Father Tambe is changing behind the wardrobe door, and his two newlywed daughter-in-laws are sitting on the sofa awkwardly (still in their bridal attire).
When the kitchen door opens and the mother (Chhaya Kadam) emerges, one wonders why the room is so silent. After peeking into the kitchen, the elder daughter-in-law realises that only one of the two couples will be able to have a private night together tonight. This will provide the older brother and sister-in-law the privilege of sleeping in the kitchen, which Pravin suggests they do by drawing chits. Just before disappearing into the kitchen to prepare dinner, the older daughter-in-law makes a lovely apology to the younger one (Anjali Patil).
It is only in this scene that Kaun Pravin Tambe? truly succeeds as a film about recreating the atmosphere of a home. Moments like as this one put Tambe’s eventual triumph into perspective: his resolute gratitude his brother, the interaction with his family, and where he’s actually come from. A common flaw in traditional underdog stories is a lack of curiosity for the particulars of the world from which they arise. In this case, it’s the chawl in Mulund and the eccentric Tambes who give the film its unique flavour.
Pravin Tambe’s narrative has all the makings of a fable and is begging to be made into a movie. Especially if you’re a cricket fanatic who pays attention to the sport. Tambe’s story is a love letter to the world’s strivers, as he perseveres as a club-level cricketer despite decades of disappointment. Desai’s film, on the other hand, manages something remarkable in that it doesn’t milk Tambe’s hardships for pity or succumb to Tambe’s eventual rise. The film honours Tambe’s dedication to the sport that brought him recognition, at a time in his life when almost everyone had written him off.

It’s only fair that Shreyas Talpade, a terrific journeyman actor himself, plays the title part. A cricket film, Nagesh Kukunoor’s Iqbal (2005), was Talpade’s breakout role before he fell away from mainstream Hindi cinema. A sequence in which Talpade goes along as an old friend lies to his son about how he used to “hammer” Pravin Tambe to all corners of the park is a welcome addition to the Pravin Tambe role. When a buddy thanks him for not speaking out his lies in front of his son, He instructs this guy to stop ruining his son’s game giving him unneeded advise just a few minutes later. When he delivers that scathing bit of dialogue with a great smile on his face, Talpade appears to be a genuine portrayal of Pravin Tambe — not simply a stand-in clone of a real-life person, but a credible mixture of reality and imagination whose world we’re totally involved in.
Desai’s film reminded me of Lootcase (2020) around an hour into it, and I pondered why. Why did you think that was? Did the “losing” protagonist try too hard to be the hero? A man and his wife’s Marathi-inflected Hindi conversation? I took a break from watching the movie to check the credits and discovered that the dialogue was written by none other than Kapil Sawant (who co-wrote Lootcase). With this information, so many things started to make sense, particularly somewhat like “Zyada socha, Wahi Locha” (If you think too much, things go wrong), which can only come from Mumbai’s streets.
Furthermore, Rajat Sanyal (Parambrata Chatterjee) is an excellent character in Desai’s picture as a journalist, a role that Hindi cinema has almost always mishandled. Journalists in Hindi cinema have rarely been depicted in a fair, human light. They are either depicted as sensationalist/distrustful hounds willing to sell their families for a story or as the walking/talking poster of morality. To put it another way, this is where Desai stands apart from his peers.
When Rajat Sanyal, the film’s narrator, reports on the first match of Tambe’s career, things go awry, and he almost immediately dislikes him. Tambe and Sanyal’s worlds collide on a number of occasions, yet they are never depicted as the typical “hero” and “villain” of the plot. Sanyal is proven to be a man of strong beliefs, although he never seeks to obstruct Tambe’s progress. It doesn’t take long for him to learn humility from his own arrogant ways at the end of the story. Sanyal gets dangerously close to being a villain in a particular scenario in a dance bar. When I saw Parambrata Chatterjee’s eyes for Sanyal, I could tell he was doing what he was supposed to be doing, and he was doing it well. Rajat Sanyal’s character, a journalist with his own prejudices, ambiguities, and complexity, appears to have been well-portrayed by Chatterjee, despite the fact that he’s never been a fan of his work in Bengali or Hindi films.
Kaun With an A-list star and so many cameo appearances by real-life cricketers and commentators, Pravin Tambe? could have been a glitzier version of itself. Taking a leap of faith isn’t difficult because the film’s casting of fake Abey Kuruvilla and Rahul Dravid, as well as their mannerisms, are spot on. Desai’s film could have easily strayed into fan service for cricket’s billions of devotees. Fortunately, it didn’t. But, thankfully, this isn’t true. For someone who made it on his own terms, this is a fitting tribute in the form of a film that will spread through word of mouth. It’s a waste of time to expect instant success. Pravin Tambe is the best person to ask about this.
