Tanhaji full movie uwatchfree

 tanhaji the unsung warrior is the latest in the slew of Islamophobic period films coming out of Bollywood in recent years in one of the movies powerfully written scenes Shivaji's ate tan hajima Lussier played by Ajay Devgan delivers an impassioned monologue to a group of Hindu villagers who are loyal to the Mughals he talks about how the animals are stolen by them how the way they are living in servitude to outsiders is equivalent to not living at all and even mentions that were local KJ she-dummy Balzac there now why does it feel like we've heard all of this somewhere recently it's called BJP leaders on the news this Hindu Muslim narrative for the war has been repeatedly reinforced through the film both subtly and overtly.




but was the Battle of konohana in 1670 which is what the movie is mostly about really fought on the basis of religion or was it a battle between the armies of two rulers over the territory under their dominions with little to do about faith after all the generals on both sides of this battle Boudewijn and tan Haji were Hindus themselves ironically enough the point about modern context was underlined by actor producer Ajay Devgan himself in his tweet promoting the trailer of tanah gee when it released they've gone I'd written 4th February 1670

the surgical strike that shook the Mughal Empire witness history like never before appropriating a phrase like surgical strike popularized in the context of India's attack on Pakistan to describe the Marathas fight against the Mughals is unfortunately quite telling about what we see in the film and the narrative it pushes through the underscoring of the characters religion however occurs most prominently during the song sequences from meb Haneda Shankara the songs picturised on tan Haji and his wife Savitri by Melissa Rea seamlessly integrates religious positivity with the side of the protagonists by association therefore tan Haji and those fighting with him receive divine sanction in the minds of the viewers they are the righteous they are the ones fighting the good fight this technique of tilting the scales in favor of one side in the war is particularly insidious because it also helps establish the religion-based nature of the conflict that is being portrayed on screen the entire movie is also presented as a freedom struggle for Hindustan we repeatedly told that this is a battle for Swaraj of the people of this mid  sons and daughters of the soil

but portraying a battle like the one at konohana is a veritable freedom struggle for Hindustan and for bagua yes the movie literally says that time and again achieves the feat of presenting the Muslim ruler as the other and the bagua as belonging to this land needless to say this fits in rather perfectly with a certain ideology it's not that I have an objection to a film being made about the battle between audubon and tonnage II my objection is to the black-and-white portrayal of these two commanders one as the personification of the devil and the other as a man who can do no wrong from the way you Deb Han rathole eats his meat to the way he dances villainy exudes from every aspect of his body language and everything he does it will remind you of Ranbir Singh playing aloud then khalji in Patna Watts devouring meat like he was a demon and well we all remember and we dancing in that movie if we didn't know better we would have mistaken some of chefs moves to be an homage to Ranveer Singh's portrayal of khilji Rossi directed by Magnum Gulzar is a fine example of a movie in recent times having shades of gray in characters on opposing sides remember Vicky Kaushal as the Pakistani army officer so it is entirely possible to have an engaging movie with a gripping plot and audiences hooked without resorting to the kind of absolutism we have grown accustomed to seeing in Bollywood's recent period films if you watch the films and politics roundtable recently filmmaker neeraj k1 makes an excellent point about

how Islamophobia is portrayed in films in various ways Yewon was talking about Islamophobic films in general and not particularly about Tanhaji goes so subtle that you look at the color palette or how its how the production dine is the design is done it's mostly blacks it's mostly dimly lit it's it's short in a low angle to sort of show you demonizing whereas you show the contrary it's all like fluorines a bright light his bright lights and short at an eye level you saw it in padma birth in the stark contrast between her Mahara well Ratan Singh and allow the energy were portrayed and you'll see it in tan Haji too and for these reasons unfortunately Tahajjud eunsang warrior leaves much to be desired and ends up being more reflective of the india we see than the india we would like to be
