Presenting Kajol, Tanvi Azmi and Mithila Palkar as the leading women, Tribhanga, which marks Kajol’s digital debut, stages dysfunctional families trying to make it through the storm.
Like the description reads, Tribhanga is an Odissi dance pose that is disjointed and asymmetrical, yet mesmerizing and sensuous. The film revolves around Nayan(Azmi), Anu(Kajol), and Masha(Mithila). Directed by Renuka Shahane, much like the director herself has said about the film, she aims to explore estranged relationships and the courage it takes to repair them.
The 2 minute long trailer hints at dark experiences, unsafe domestic environments, emotional baggage and the gradual drifting away pattern between a mother and a daughter. It touches upon things that people are willing to express and explore through cinema, much like Kajol summed it up as she shared the trailer, “Nobody is Perfect.”
It’s a promising trailer that sows seeds of curiosity and the wish to open up this book and learn about why does Kajol’s character hate her mother played by Azmi and how does Masha lighten the scene up and balance the act.
The upcoming Netflix film co-produced by Ajan Devgan, Siddharth P Malhotra, Sapna Malhotra, Deepak Dhar, Rishi Negi and Parag Desai, reflects a pattern of the kind of cinema we are leaning toward. A cinema which weaves our daily tussles, struggles and serious problems into a comfortable watching experience, courtsey of the streaming giants.
Tribhanga also stars Kunaal Roy Kapur who appears in incredible sync with the main ladies who are running the film.
As Renuka Shahane was reported saying, “I wanted to capture the dysfunctional family dynamics when the core, the relationship with the mother, is shaky and unstable. I added three different generations to better reflect the intergenerational perspective in looking at the same event in three different ways,” the trailer leaves you with high expectations.
The film releases on Netflix on January 15.
