All the teenagers and youth of my family and social circle kept reading ‘Jhand’ till I told. Much later while watching the trailer etc., he got ‘Kaivalya’ that the real name of the film is ‘Jhund‘. A swarm is a gathering. Few such teenagers and youths whom the world ‘judges’ on seeing. This film does the same. The film’s director Nagraj Manjule, full name Nagraj Popatrao Manjule, also does the same.
He expects the audience not to do this when they go out after watching the film. Manjule’s cinema has been running on a fixed-line for years. ‘Fandry’, ‘Sairat’, ‘Vaikuntha‘ and now ‘Jhund‘ all have one undercurrent. He is doing amazing as a technician. As a director, he stands where he was in his first film. Manjule’s new film shakes the audience from within.

Amitabh Bachchan’s film ‘Bombay to Goa’ is completing 50 years of release on March 3. In the meantime, three or four generations of viewers have come. If Amitabh Bachchan is there then ‘Jhund’ has reached the theaters. The movie is a bit cumbersome to watch in the theatre. It is perfect to watch on OTT.
The story of the film ‘Jhund’ is of one line in which a coach sets out to team up a ‘swarm’ of people from the margins of society. And, at least it succeeds in it. The question is, how many such coaches can make a society just by watching cinema and who did great things to change the society by broadcasting Ambedkar’s policies in the society, how much did they change themselves and how much work did they do to bring society at par?
Small incident but timely for here. The scavengers of our society are regularly respected. They are clothed with flowers. In order to make themselves big, everyone also gives them cash money. This time everything was happening in front of me, so I saw something else in his eyes. All of a sudden I gathered everyone and sat among them. Arms spread on the shoulders. embraced and after that the gleam in his eyes, I think that’s what they wanted.
They are not eager to sit together and have food on election occasions. This ‘herd’ yearns to get a chance to walk together, stand together and sit together every day.
The film ‘Jhund’ is a commentary film. From the first chapter of the film, the audience knows what they are about to watch. This story has been shown in many films before. Is a stubborn coach. There are all spoiled children. There are some people who curse the coach time and again. His fight goes on everywhere outside the house. Sometimes against the system and sometimes against the society. Nagraj Manjule also makes some efforts to bring a twist in this running on the leak.
But the path still remains the same as the trails on the banks of the river. He is a nomad. But, if the director’s destination is not there, then even the cinema could not reach the stage. Manjule has achieved the same proficiency in showing the condition of Dalits as the directors of films like ‘Damul’ and ‘Paar’ who were once marginalized in Hindi cinema with the tag of parallel cinema.
It is necessary for Manjule to keep pace with the generation of the changing times. From that generation which is caste, creed, religion, He hardly accepts class distinction. This is the generation that the attacks on Ukraine do not allow to sleep. And which begs the question, why does a country that keeps trying to become a Vishwaguru becomes neutral when it comes to its chance?

In the film ‘Jhund’, you will also see many other actors whose faces are familiar. Rinku Rajguru is now well recognized by the audience of the Hindi belt. He is also accompanied by the partner of the film ‘Sairat’. But, the cloak of both is still the same as before. Yes, Keshav Kadam, who emerged from ‘Fandry’, has definitely made a big leap in this film as an actor. The music of Maharashtra is passionate music.

Ajay Atul is considered it’s master. He also manages to keep the tempo of the film high. But its background music sometimes misses out on sync with the story of the film. Cinematographer Sudhakar has succeeded in showing the entire undercurrent of the film ‘Jhund’ according to its director.

The editing of the film is weak. ‘Jhund’, which slips for three hours, could have been a good OTT film of shorter duration. But, Then perhaps there would have been a danger of getting lost somewhere like ‘Vaikuntha’. The biggest challenge of Nagraj Manjule’s future cinema will be to keep pace with the preferences of the cinematic audience of the changing times and he will have to overcome the insistence of speaking his mind only on the basis of story-based cinema.
