The plot revolves around Gangaram played by Pankaj Tripathi, who is the Sarpanch of a rural place named Jhundao. He takes responsibility for resolving the problems of the villagers, including famine deaths and wild animal attacks on crops.

When he goes to a government office to obtain help, he is informed that the issues cannot be resolved so quickly. After much research, a sad Gangaram learns that if a person is attacked by a tiger close to the tiger reserve, the family will receive Rs 10 lakhs in compensation. Gangaram comes up with a plan and tells his family that he has cancer since he doesn’t want to die in vain.

For the town to be compensated for his death and live happily ever after, he agrees to become the tiger’s prey. The rest of the story is about what happens after Gangaram enters the jungle and is devoured by a tiger.

Will he be able to relieve the people’s suffering? Will the tiger be put to death? Will Gangaram end up as a tiger meal? You’ll have to watch the movie to find out, I guess.

Pankaj Tripathi’s pranks are the most memorable parts of the movie. His little quirk character adds to the performance. The concrete way in which he accomplishes the character of Gangaram is stroking and very approachable.

Moreover, he has sprinkled lots and lots of his brilliant sense of humor in many camera shots, making a few of the most serious scenes come out non-preachy. His distinctive manner of delivering a speech is what keeps you interested all the way through.

Brilliant cinematography by Tiyash Sen. The rural settings are depicted in such a way that they captivate the viewer’s attention and give you the impression that you are seeing Tripathi experience everything firsthand.

Even the night scenes were shot with such excellent technique that even though it is night, the lighting is never unpleasant or dull.


The background score by Shantanu Moitra deserves praise. If the background music isn’t fantastic in such heartland tales, you typically don’t experience the sentiments strongly. Every background score in a scene is brilliantly composed by Moitra.

The songs are also decent, but the minimal promotional campaigns of the movie hamper them. Both “Dhoop Paani Bahne De” by KK and “Maya Chhaliya Roop Dhare” by Raul Ram are emphatic songs. Had the music been promoted well, the soundtrack could have been among the top 10.

The poor thing about the movie is that people do not even know about the movie’s release. If you are reading this review, I highly suggest you watch the movie.

Conclusion On Sherdil: The Pilibhit Saga

If we talk about the disliked parts of the movie, then none of the other actors, excluding Pankaj Tripathi, receives sufficient screen time to display their abilities. Sayani Gupta and Neeraj Kabi, who try to make the most of their little screen time, have been completely wasted. His outrageous hairstyle, which breaks the tone of his persona, doesn’t suit him either.

As for my final words, there wasn’t a scene where the movie was boring. In fact, each and every moment while watching the movie will make you feel like “what will happen next”. To be honest, we have witnessed many movies with a good start, but they do not end up with some legitimate story but a vague ending. This movie will not disappoint you with the ending. Don’t worry, I’m not going to reveal the ending, but I will leave it to you all.
