Kajol’s Character in Tribhanga: Flawed yet Perfect!

Before Tribhanga was released, there was a lot of hype created surrounding the Netflix original, mainly because of the complex subject that the movie deals with. The movie also includes a stellar ensemble cast like Vaibhav Tatwawaadi, Kunaal Roy Kapur, and Manav Gohil. Each character has its unique personality but the character that intrigued me the most is Kajol’s.

Kajol plays the character of Anuradha Apte, a famous Bollywood actor who later inclines towards Odissi dance. The movie beautifully articulates her journey from her childhood to her motherhood. As a child, she was subjected to sexual assault and verbally abused which later had a major contribution to the tumultuous personality of her character. If only she could converse with her mother, things would turn out completely different for her.

She realized her mistake when her daughter Masha played by Mithila Palkar confronted her about her childhood which had a similar background. The fact that Anuradha listened and realized her mistake and embrace her daughter with a pinch of salt makes her a strong and perfect mother!
