Tribhanga – Tedhi Medhi Crazy Movie Review

Not many times you will find clarity in storytelling, authenticity in performances resulting in a movie that will stay with you.

Actress-turned filmmaker Renuka Shahane’s humanitarian drama Tribhanga – Tedhi Medhi Crazy does exactly that.


Deriving its title from an Indian classical dance pose which is described as imperfect but beautiful quite like the lives of these three women – grandmother Nayantara ‘Nayan’ Apte (Tanvi Azmi) a renowned writer and liberal thinker. Nayan’s daughter Anuradha ‘Anu’ Apte (Kajol) an outspoken straight forward actress who has developed a passion for the Odissi dance and Masha (Mithila Palkar) daughter of Anu.

An admirer of Nayan – Milan (Kunaal Roy Kapur) a writer /journalist is penning an autobiography of Nayan. While shooting a video for the autobiography, Nayan faints and goes into a coma; this brings Anuradha ‘Anu’ Apte and Masha back to Nayan who is lying unconscious in the hospital. The reunion traces the journey of Nayan, Anu and Masha on the decisions they made, the choices they took and what they have gained and lost in the bargain.

Writer director Renuka Shahane also debates on the value of family but more important than the idea of a family, Tribhanga is a journey of understanding of relationships and humanity. It can be tough, unsparing, easy, loving, there can be hatred and an unexpected flash of hope, poetic and spiritual as well.


In the due course of Tribhanga, Renuka Shahane never misses a chance to comment on male dominance, gender bias without getting preachy and holds the women empowerment flag high in this exceptionally riveting saga of love, life & loss.

Tribhanga is also about Karma, the assumptions of what life, love is and what happens to these assumptions by the decisions we take and choices we make.

Filled with touching, moving and realistic moments, Tribhanga – Tedhi Medhi Crazy is bound to make you smile, cry, cringe and make your heart feel with hope. It’s a probing soul massage and a slice of life as well.


The performances are extraordinary.

Kajol is superb as the straightforward out spoken actress, she knows what she wants and here she is in absolute command. Her transformation during the second half is amazing.

Tanvi Azmi is purely brilliant. Mithila Palkar is outstanding and comes strong in the later half.

Kunaal Roy Kapur as Milan is rightly nuanced and controlled. Vaibhav Tatwawaadi as Robindro leaves his mark.

Manav Gohil in a short cameo makes his presence felt.

Good to see Kanwaljeet Singh in a short cameo. Shweta Mehendale and Nishank Verma chip in with good support.


There was no need to use cuss words over here.

Final words

Tribhanga – Tedhi Medhi Crazy is a movie about life made by a filmmaker who cares about life and is passionate about the future of cinema and its possibilities both as a medium for storytelling and its profoundly emotional impact on people in real.
