In today’s time, everyone knows about Pankaj Tripathi, especially after the SSR suicide case when people start boycotting star kids and supporting outsiders. Actually, the fight should be against fake actors not against star kids. If I will have to justify my statement, then I will give only one example, and that is of Aamir Khan who is also a star kid, but when we talk about his performance then the only titles (MR. PERFECTIONIST, TOM HANKS OF INDIA) given to him shows the red signal to the tongue which speak against star kids.
Disclaimer– Writer of this article doesn’t want to hurt anyone’s sentiments. We know that Pankaj Ji is alumni of NSD (IIT of acting) and faced a long period of struggle.
5. Pankaj Tripathi As Bharat Lal in “KAGAAZ”
(hum mare nhi hain,hum bhrashtachariyon ki kalam ke mare hain)
Kagaaz is a biographical movie based on the struggle and life of a farmer, Lal Bihari, from a small village, who was declared dead on government papers. This Pankaj Tripathi and Monal Gujjar starring film made critics say that it is the best work done by Satish Kaushik till date(writer and director of “Kagaaz”). It was produced by Salman khan films.
This character breaks the stereotype(the character played by Pankaj Ji have no differences) of people because Bharat Lal was an enthusiastic, a talkative person which have a cunning mind too, who tried many ways to prove, that he is not dead and this makes the difference from Kaleen Bhayia and Guru Ji like characters and this statement was personally liked by Pankaj Tripthi when I commented it on their Facebook post.
4. Pankaj Tripathi As Rudra in “STREE”
(sabka adhaar link hai uske pass)
Stree is a horror-comedy film directed by Amar Kaushik, written by Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K., and produced by Dinesh Vijan and Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K., starring Shraddha Kapoor, Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi, Aparshakti Khurana, Abhishek Banerjee.
This film made Pankaj Tripathi won the Filmfare award for “Best Supporting Actor“.
Pankaj Ji said in an interview that the famous dialogues like “kya tum mere jiwan me aane wali ho, me abhi apna jiwan le ke aya” and “sabhi ka adhaar link hai uske paas” was improvised by him. In this horror-comedy film, the whole comedy part was maintained by him perfectly.
3. Pankaj Tripathi As Principal Shrivastava in “Nil Battey Sannata”
(ghoda ghoda ghoooooda)
Nil Battey Sannata released internationally as The New Classmate is a comedy-drama film directed by Ashwiny Iyer Tiwari in her feature debut. Produced by Aanand L. Rai, Ajay Rai, and Alan McAlex under the banners of Colour Yellow Productions and JAR Pictures. Swara Bhaskar starred made her win the Screen Awards for Best Actress (Critics).
Pankaj Ji played a principal and 10th class math teacher role in this film. He once said that Pooja, her maid has the same story and he went blank, with no preparation, on the first day of the shoot but the magic he did, we all know.
Swara, on set, said that he is a dangerous actor, we wouldn’t even know what he would do while taking the shot, he is such an original actor and actually, Swara is right, the humour he created in this film was just amazing while watching this principal Srivastava in the movie, I reminded my math’s teacher.
2. Pankaj Tripathi As Kaleen Bhayia (Akhandanand Tripathi) In Mirzapur
(izzat nhi karte hain darte hain sab)
Who does not know about Mirzapur… If no one really knows, what are you doing, open telegram now Sorry sorry…. open Amazon Prime now and watch Mirzapur.
Pankaj Ji did a tremendous work when we watch, it perceives like we are watching a real don and I am sure if you watched all the episodes continuously, you felt that your body language, your talking way has been changed into Kaleen Bhayia’s style, this is true acting, the actor that leaves its mark in our original life is called the true actor.
Now, I could only say that please release season 3 as soon as possible.
1. Pankaj Tripathi As Aatma Singh in “NEWTON”
(better weapons, night vision goggles, thermal imaging, laser finders…)
Newton is a black comedy-drama film co-written and directed by Amit V. Masurkar. The film stars Rajkummar Rao, Pankaj Tripathi, Anjali Patil, and Raghubir Yadav. The film was produced by Manish Mundra under Drishyam Films.
The film received universal acclaim, securing eight nominations at the 63rd Filmfare Awards, including Best Film (Critics), Best Actor (Critics) for Rao, and Best Supporting Actor for Tripathi while winning Best Film and Filmfare Award for Best Story.
Newton was also awarded the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Hindi. Pankaj Tripathi won a special mention at 65th National Film Awards. The film was selected as the Indian entry for the Best Foreign Language Film at the 90th Academy Awards.
Actually, all the performances given by Pankaj Tripathi are the best, He is the true asset of Bollywood. The journey from Gopalganj (home town) to Mumbai is very inspiring. It was not easy at that time to enter films, as there were no casting directors at that time, but he never gave up. Because of this, the place in the hearts of people for Pankaj Ji and is not present for other actors.
