Pankaj Tripathi is a fantastic Indian actor. His versatile acting skills made all of us fall in love with him. His journey is also inspirational for many of us. All and sundry know him for the antagonistic role in the Gangs of Wasseypur film series. Lets know about Endearing Pankaj Tripathi – Mridula love story.
M is the wife of Pankaj Tripathi and she is a teacher by profession. We all know Pankaj and Mridula as husband and wife, but majority of us don’t know about arduous and endearing love story of this gracious couple. This cheerful couple has been married for 17 years and counting, and has a daughter named Aashi. So, lets throw some light over this beautiful love story and know little more about the love.
How and where did Pankaj Tripathi meet Mridula for first time?
In an interview with better India, Mridula revealed the story how and where did she meet Pankaj and how this journey started. It was on the 24 May 1993 and she aforementioned that “It was my elder brother’s Tilak (engagement ceremony). I was on my way to a tiny room on the terrace to get dressed when this boy with hazel eyes, brown hair, and a beard crossed me. Those eyes would go on to follow me during the entire function.”
At that time Mridula was in nineth grade and Pankaj was two-year senior. Throwing light on the first meet Pankaj said “It was my sister’s wedding and I saw her on the balcony of the terrace and thought to myself, ‘This is the woman I want to spend the rest of my life with.’ And I did not even know who she was, or what her name was, at the time.”
Majority of us don’t believe on concept of love at first sight and term it as ‘aisa bas filmo me hota he’. Here we see the real love at first sight. Its true this happens in the films but this story is far more than that, it’s a film itself, a real-life film. So, let’s step into the real film adding on to this meet/introduction story.
The rising action – into Pankaj Tripathi – Mridula love story:
Back into the 90’s, these days were not easy for a couples to communicate as we experience as of now. So only means of contact was via writing the letters.
Purportedly, in a span of five months Pankaj use to visit his sister’s house at least once, so that would give them a chance to spend quality of the time together. Adding on to this Mridula says “I would leave for school in the morning and could meet him only after dinner. That was our time. We would sit and talk, sometimes till early morning. We both loved reading and had so much to talk about the books, novels, characters, stories, and the writers.”
Mridula- Breaking up with someone else to marry Pankaj:
Writing letters and visiting the Mridula’s house continued the Pankaj Tripathi – Mridula love story, for almost eight years. Soon the time came, this was the time when her parents found a marriage alliance for Mridula.
Finally, the time came Mridula says, “Pankaj confessed my brother and sister-in-law to the prospective groom’s place. He came and told me that it was a good match for me and I would surely get much of ‘Bhautik Sukh.’ I did not know so much Hindi back then and asked what that meant, and he said ‘material happiness.’ That’s when I felt that I was losing something very precious.”
After that Pankaj had to leave the place with aching heart. As because he needs to go at National School of Drama (NSD) to study. So, while in this span Mridula came up with an idea to break her marriage with someone else to marry Pankaj, Mridula says, “Only I know the lengths that I’d gone to break that marriage. And now the most important dilemma was communicating this news to Pankaj.”
After few days, on 24 December finally Pankaj spoke with all members of the family and Mridula just a day before her birthday. After the long wait for months, they got a chance to speak with each other. She says, “He wished me, and I reminded him that it was the next day. I tried really hard to convey my feelings to him, but he didn’t understand. It took a long explanation for him to finally get the drift.”
Era of Long-distance relationship:
Now a days the long-distance relationships seem quite hard. And dating is quite common for today’s generation. Back then, dating was a peculiar among the society and people. But the love finds it way out from amidst condition, they managed to keep their love and spark alive in their long-distance relationship. The only means to keep their love alive was via letters, that too once in 10 days and the phone call- a fixed at fixed time around 8:00 PM.
Happy starting – Pankaj and Mridula finally got married:
After the 12 years of courtship and lots for struggle, the couple Pankaj and Mridula finally got married on 15 January 2004. Mridula being the Brahmin sister of Pankaj’s brother-in-law, it was against their caste to marry in a family. Yet, they sorted it out and have been happily married for 17 years now and still counting. That’s the reasons I said this story is far more than a story of film. A perfect story, love at first sight-tragedy-struggles and a happy ending towards new journey.

He does a preety well job in justifying the character in the movie, the struggle and the sacrifice by him adds the extra spice in the movie.
Lets talk the 10 points about the movie which shooks the audience in the certain generes
Reasons why will it is a Double Dhamaka!
Why is the movie worth watching?
Well the answer to this question lies everywhere, a perfectly action packed thriller movie which will never miss to shock you in every single scene. The plot of the movie revolves around a phone call which threats the whole city by stating to blast off the ‘sea link’. The whole struggle in finding the person, the media role, the twist turns etc make an adrenelin rush in your body. The excellent performance by the actors make it more intensifying. The tension in the movie will never left you feel bored.
How the movie was put together?
The movie was all kept together in a very short time period. The movie was shot for 10 days in a singlr room itself. There was a lot of end moment jobs, edits, setups which were definitely not an easy job to be pulled out. However, movie dosen’t seems that it has been put all together at the last moment. It never felt like a last minute hack job at any stance. All the scenes have been preety well kept one after another and no rush is found. It copes to a good excent with all the other thriller movies.
Excellent roleplay and direction.
The role play in the movie was very well executed by every single character. The lead role of Arjun Pathak, enacted by Kartik Aryan is one of the hot topic of gossips nowadays among the casting community of bollywood. He payed justice to the intensity, feelings and the mental state of the character keepin in mind about his past life struggles. Event the actors other than Kartik has done a pretty well job in their scale. You can feel the intensity, stress and tension while watching the movie. You can fell every scene of the movie and never feels like scripted or boring
Mirror to the society.
Dhamaka has played a significant role in showing the harsh side of the society, especially the media. Soon as the protagonist tells the boss about the phone call the boss directly starts the orders to go live. This scene justifies that the news channels are blindly runnig behind the views and the rating, they don’t care wether the truth is shown ore not, all they care about is the ratings and ultimately Money. If the content shown by the media, which is blindly trusted by a lot of Indians is not true then how can we believe that there is a proper functioning of the government to make country stable.
Importance of True Media in growth.
Media is an very impotant part of communication of the government to the people. By the means of media the citizens get aware of every single thing taking place in in the country. They trust their media to such an excent that they can trust it blindly. This increases the burden up on the media to telecast only the truth. Seen in the movie that Arjun only shows the truth despite that his boss wanted to go live without any investigation or proof. But Arjun’s honest pays off at the last in finding the person. Now who was he? To find that out you need to watch the movie yourself.
Significance and power of media.
Dhamaka purely displays the power of the media in the country like India. It was observed that the person who plot the bomb called Arjun Pathak, who was a news anchor in a news channel named as Bharosa 24/7, to convey his demands. He wanted apology from the minister for an past incident. This signifies that the power, significance and reach of media is so high that it can influence the minister himself, despite of being an VIP.
Best in the class performance.
The story of the past of the main character Arjun Pathak is very dramatic and struggleful. The pain, struggles he faced in his life were really harsh upon him and he still is not completely out of it. The pain which was in need to be justified with excellence is very well pulled over by Kartik Aryan. Kartik Aaryan made a double dhamaka by his acting and excellent performance. His actions, reactions, emotions etc build a complete connection with the audience. There isn’t any single point in the whole movie where you would feel disconnected or bored.
Excellent Screenplay, Script-writing and Direction.
The most hot topic about the movie is that it has been shot in only 10 days and that too in only one single room. There was a great pressure over the screenplay team and the camera crew to get the best shots possible But the end results are amazing. The direction of the movie is very well assigned off. Ram Madhvani is the director of the movie, who is already known for his excellent works in the past. He is very well known for his mind-blowing films such as Aarya, Neerja etc. The cinematography of the movie is very well carried along with the scene and the expressions. Overall a very well executed job done by the whole team.
The whole movie has been shot in 10 days that too in a single room. Can you believe it? How is this even possible to make such a masterpiece in just 10 days. Well this only possible if one has a very firm dedication towards the work or the art he is involved in. Despite of all the difficulties the team might have faced the end result is very amazing and is very well appreciated also loved by the audience. Its clear that nothing is impossible in the artistic world if there is need to create something amazing.
A must watch movie for thriller seeking audience.
The movie is a completely packed thriller with bars of expectations which it fulfills as well. Everything about the movie is very well planned, executed and whether it be direction, performance or pulling the whole movie together. This is a pure masterpiece which is a must watch experience.
We wish Kartik Aaryan a Dhamaka on his birthday along with Dhamaka on the Netflix! A double Dhamaka for the Dhamakedar Actor!
