Directed by Ashwiny Iyer-Tiwari (Bareilly Ki Barfi), the trailer of Panga starring Kangana Ranaut in the lead is out now. Kangana plays Jaya Nigam, a 32-year-old former kabaddi world champion yearning to make a comeback in the hopes of playing for India again.
It’s good to see Kangana back in a rooted role after a few indulgent misses. Ashwiny, whose films deal with the ordinary, with a keen sense of humour and diligence, seems in control of her craft. There is also a supportive husband (Jassi Gill), cheerleading son, naysaying mother (Neena Gupta) and a friend (Richa Chaddha), and rousing music in the trailer. Kangana looks earnest and the setting lived in, as Ashwiny’s films tend to.
Panga is produced by Fox Star Studios and has music by Shankar Ehsan Loy. The film will release on 24 January, 2020.
