Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi Movie Plot
Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi movie is the directorial debut by actress Seema Pahwa. The movie is a family comedy-drama that ensemble cast of Naseeruddin Shah, Konkona Sen Sharma, Vinay Pathak, Supriya Pathak, Manoj Pahwa and Vineet Kumar.
Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi movie after Ramprasad’s death, his entire family gathers under one roof for 13 days , to perform and observe the Hindu traditions and rituals called the tehrvi. The movie Ramprasad ki Tehrvi is all about the family’s dynamics, politics, and insecurities that come out during that time . And the realisation of the importance of people and things in the due course of time.
Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi movie who is familiar with the loud, messy North Indian joint families will recognise the beats: mourning becomes a tragi-comic thing, with everyone and even with those , they don’t recognise. They are forced into a closeness which will dissipate as soon as the ‘tehravi’ is over.
When children grow and leave home and start their own families, everything changes. ‘Kaise hua’? This question keeps popping and up, and Supriya Pathak, the inconsolable wife and the mother of the many sons and daughters start to sound like a stuck record. The sons (Pathak, Pahwa and Chattopadhyaya, who also stands in for a younger Ram Prasad, get the best sequences) wonder why their father had to take out ‘such a big loan’, the ‘bahus’ gang up on the youngest (Konkona), who lives in Mumbai and dreams of becoming a movie actor.
Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi movie is a subtle satire at all those middle-class families where the death of head of the family leads to a change in dynamics between its members. During this period, they indulge in discussions, harmless jibes, casual conversations and arguments. In all this, ‘amma’ (Supriya Pathak) now is left alone to mourn after her husband’s death and the dilemma about who is going to take care of her.
Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi movie is a relatable movie and Seema Pahwa’s attempt at direction is laudable. It is the writing part that falters. Some of the jokes fell flat but many situations and one-liners make you giggle and smile. The well etched characters have done a marvellous job in their limited screen time. The camaraderie among the four brothers is delectable as they sit on the rooftop, drinking all night and opening-up like never before. The drama is a gentle-but-sharp excavation of family politics, as how the blood-ties can sometimes get diluted, but also strengthen when a life-changing event like death occurs.
A special mention to Supriya, who, without too many dialogues, packs a strong performance with just her expressions. Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi movie story moves at decent pace but in the second half of the movie, it feels as if it is a bit stretched.
In a nutshell, despite all the good intentions and a talented cast, ‘Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi moviei’ fails to make the desired impact and eventually turns out to be an average family entertainer.

Ramprasad Ki Tehrvi Movie Review
The editing (Dipika Kalra) is as generic and formulaic as cinematography in most part of the film. Other aesthetic elements, like the background score (Sagar Desai), the production design (Parijat Poddar), and the costume design (Darshan Jalan and Manish Tiwari) are also more from the zone of theatre. They all add to the texture of the film but do not even remotely push the envelope as far as filmmaking is concerned.
Maybe Seema should have taken a cue from her actor Konkona, who made an extremely assured and immersive directorial debut in A Death In The Gunj in 2016. To treat a film like a play, despite all the good intentions and conditioning, comes across as a disservice to both the mediums.
