The mother son relationship
The relationship between Jaya and her son Adi (Yagya Bhasin) is of a mother, friend and guide. Jaya is over protective due to Adi’s weak immune but occasionally allows him to binge on pizzas etc. the best part is when Adi comes to know about her mother’s passion for Kabbaddi, he motivates her to make a comeback. This is how a relationship between parents and children should be. Love caring and understanding travelling both ways. Ideally a mother is known for giving life and here Jaya finds her child giving the true meaning to her life.
The second chance
A human being has a single life to live and life doesn,t gives you a second chance to relive what you have given up. PANGA is all about grabbing the god send opportunity with both hands and rebuild that faith in you. Age is just a matter. Jaya makes a comeback at 32 to her favorite sport. How many of us especially women who have given up their passion due to family pressures etc get a second chance to make a comeback. PANGA urges us to take that second chance seriously.
Never give up on your dreams
Your dreams should never sleep. It may take a sabbatical but you should be proud of your talent, art and should never count yourself out. Jaya has given up playing Kabbadi but she has not lost the love for the game. She feels thrilled to see young Kabbadi players. Yes, there is a remorse hidden inside but Jaya never allows that remorse of not being able to play to affect her family. She doesn’t hate her husband or her son and never complains that she gave up on her passion because of them.
Appreciate the talent of your dear and near ones
On realizing that her mother was a champion Kabbadi player once, Adi motivates her to make a comeback. it’s a harsh truth that in many households the talent of the housewife apart from household activities is ignored by her own children and husband. In PANGA Adi lights the flame of her mother’s passion again.
A person is incomplete without a family and in PANGA Jaya’s family is an ideal family that comes together to support her dreams and ensures that she makes a comeback.
Jaya even when not playing in the team and sitting in reserve, still thinks on how his team will win. In a team sports, winning is most important than anything else.
