,It happens that the animals flee to the village, the peasants are to the city, and the people in the city that their hunger never ends.“Gangaram speaks in court with a sense of urgency, helplessness and suffering. This film by director Shridget Mukherjee is related to a range of topics such as jungle, village, city, government, poverty. The film wants to preserve many ideas related to the environment and human beings. Some things manage to reach the heart, others do not.

The film is inspired by real events, when it is claimed that the elders of local families were sent to the forest to hunt for compensation, near the Pilibhit tiger reserve.

Sherdil is the story of Gangaram (Pankaj Tripati), a Sarpanch from the village of Jundao, who is tired of traveling to government services complaining of poverty and hunger in his village. In such a situation, one day Gangaram’s eyes fall on a notice that says that if a person falls victim to a tiger near the tiger reserve, then his family will receive 10 lakh compensation from the government. Then Gangaram also decided to follow this path. He then persuaded his wife Lajo (Sayani Gupta) and the villagers to make tiger food in the dense forest so that his village could claim compensation for his death. But the world of the jungle is no less than an illusion of Gangaram. In the jungle, he meets Jim Ahmed (Niraj Kabi), a hunter. The whole story revolves around a tiger who came to become a victim and chase a hunt.


The directors try to give important messages on issues such as nature, development, poverty, religion. But they fall victim to poor writing. The first half of the script, in particular, feels sloppy and careless and relies only on the characteristic style of presentation of Pankaj Tripathi. The dialogues between Pankaj Tripati and Niraj Kabi in the second half attracted attention. But the power that the film and the characters require from the script turned out to be insufficient here.

technical side

Tias Sen’s cinematography makes the story strong. From the greenery of a dense forest to the government office, he captured his camera beautifully. Editing Pranay Dasgupta could have been a little stricter. Many scenes in the film seem repetitive, which not only increases the duration. The music of the film is given by Shantanu Moitra, which maintains the authenticity of the story. There are four songs in the film and the good thing is that they all move with the story.


Speaking of acting, from the first scene to the end, Pankaj Tripati kept his position. It can be said that this is the only reason that keeps you attached to the film. Innocence, helplessness, anger, grief, courage … he easily brings all kinds of emotions to the screen. Niraj Kabi is frozen in character. One of the strongest scenes of the film was shot between the two actors. Sayani Gupta is an exquisite artist, but there are no memorable dialogues or scenes in her hands.

I see or I don’t see

In general, Sherdil is an average film with good intentions and a good cast. If the writing and editing of the film were refined, it could be a very strong film. In a scene in Sherdil, the hero of Pankaj Tripati Gangaram tells a peasant: – We are both fearless and leaders.Interestingly, just like the character, the actor fearlessly carries the whole film on his strong shoulders. 3 stars for “Sherdil” from Filmibeat.
