IANS Review: ‘Bandon Mein Tha Dum’ captures India’s resilience in historic triumph

Test justice, no mistrustfulness, is the absolute zenith of the sport. Though the preface of T20 has seen the fashionability of the game soar to new situations, players widely regard Test justice as the toughest format to succeed in.

There are series that live long in the memory of the justice fanatics. And to relive one similar moment, Neeraj Pandey, who had preliminarily made’M.S. Dhoni The Untold Story’, has delivered yet another cracker of a product, the docu- series’ Bandon Mein Tha Dum’ on the Indian justice platoon’s memorable Test series against Australia in2020/21, when they showed real adaptability and courage to overcome odds and win the series, despite being short of coffers.
The series succeeds in reliving the major moments with the help of archival footage and remembrances of some of the crucial players and justice intelligencers. It takes the followership inside the kiosk via candid interviews with Ajinkya Rahane, Ravichandran Ashwin, Cheteshwar Pujara, Mohammad Siraj, Rishabh Pant, and others.

Among the cricketers, Ashwin stood out because of his articulation, naturalness and sense of humour. In occasion 3, which is each about the Sydney Test and there’s a dialogue–” If it meant dying, I would rather die”– in which the off- incentive modulates his tone according to the unfolding situation, where he was battling severe reverse pain.
On the other hand, Cheteshwar Pujara, like his fur, narrates his side of the story without important fuss. There’s a sequence in the final occasion, which features Pujara taking brutal blows on his body. The shots and angles, depicted in that particular moment in the series, are so real that one can nearly feel the ball colliding with his casket.

There are colorful sequences of Ajinkya Rahane, who was the promoter- in- chief during that series in the absence of regular commander Virat Kohli, in which he reveals about his game plans and allowed
processes behind making certain opinions. But the frame of the run- eschewal involving Rahane and Virat, when both were fur easily in Adelaide, comes as a painful flashback.
” The moment it happed, I ever got the feeling that it would bring us the game,” says an emotional Rahane. That run-out moment also appears incontinently after Rahane’s redemption hundred in Melbourne following the Adelaide debacle. At the end of the final occasion, he’s shown wiping a gash.

The rest of the Indian players– Mohammed Siraj, Washington Sundar and Rishabh Pant– try to be humorless. Pant makes an honest admission that he was relatively sad that India drew the Sydney Test.” A draw is a draw and palm is a palm,” he says philosophically.” A draw is noway the same as a palm.”
There’s a teary Siraj when India’s public hymn is being played and he remembers his late father. Another scene shows the leader looking heavenward after picking his first five- for in Test justice. On the other hand, Hanuma Vihari is shown saying that his mama told him that the” purpose of his life has been served” after the fortitude and determination he showed in Sydney to save the Test for India.

The docu- series has maintained a fine balance between events and characters and isn’t too melodramatic. One can argue whether a justice- grounded talkie should be more dramatic or not, especially when the sport itself comes laden with so important emotion.
The four- occasion series could have been a bit more engaging as occasionally it gives the feeling of repeating what has been said and read multiple times. Neeraj Pandey has had experience of directing a sports biopic, so the followership could justifiably anticipate a bit further engagement from his side. Actor Jimmy Shergill has done a brilliant job as the narrator for the series.

Overall,” Bandon Mein Tha Dum’ is worth a watch for people who are suckers for good sports- grounded entertainment and want to relive the moments from the Ultimate Test Series Down Under.
