Saji From Kumbalangi Nights: The Journey From A Careless Man To A Real Man

Chai Bisket is again here, to give you some beautiful character analysis of actors/heroes. Have a look and give it a read.

Kumbalangi nights is a beautiful chain of emotions, bondings and water enriched beauty of Kumbalangi. Also you can say that this film is a kind of exploration into several shades of men. I personally connect to saji’s character, the way he changed being irresponsible to father of the family. Saji broke the norms, by showing that men have emotions and can express it as openly as women do. Here are the characteristics why i’m in love with saji chetta.

  • Saji the irresponsible:

There are men who think they can just eat, drink, casually hang around at other’s expense without a minute sense of guilt. Tammudu hostel nundi intiki vaste oka palarimpu, oka navvu kuda lekunda ela asalu? Nanna chanipoina roju gurthundadha? Lighter tho nanna dagara una candle veligistara?

  • Saji the angry bird:

Endhuku antha kopam saji ani andaru antaru..kani ah kopam venaka unna badha naku kanipinchindi.

  • Sare ayindhedo ayindi atleast telisaka nanna ki prayer chesthunte..tammudu vachi show antadu. Evariki kaladhu andi meku kaladha chepandi?
  • “Bony ivala radule, ah dancers tho ne untadu, vadiki adhe family, velli tini poduko” ani bobby anagane.. You know what he is the one who loves Bony more than anyone else. Maatalu ravu ane maryada, istam rendu untayi.
  • Maa saji brother’s andarilo potti ga undochu..kaani masth gattodu. He know the techniques to fight amma. Do you remember which scene it was?

  • Saji the Cutest:

Entha cute ga “abayilu kuda lady bird cycles ye use cheyali guruvu garu” ani bhale antadu. Last lo bobby ki pelli ayyaka “Konchem intlo crowd gurinchi alochinchi condoms use cheyi” anadam. Even more cutest.

  • Saji the taggedhele:

Appu lu unna, business run avakapoina konthamandhiki oka poursham untadhi. Adhi mana saji lo kusantha ekuve undi. Lottery ticket ivaledhu ani, looser anadu ani..partners ye ayina, tana money kakapoina iron box dagara money teskuni moham medha visiresthadu. Papam vadu antha kashtapadi iron chesina money ni ala ichesi last lo malla punch lu “Hey padhara bar ki podham” ani.

  • Saji the savage:

Abba dorikindhe chance..bobby tana love matter shammy tho matladu ani adiginapudu. Podham ra danlo emundi kaani..nenu atu tirigi unta nuvu chetta (annaya) ani piluvu apudu vasta antadu.

  • Saji the eldest and the youngest:

Bobby love matter shammy ni oppinchadaniki maximum ways try chestadu. Bobby illu vadhili velthanu anapudu entha emotional ayipothado..”mana illu ra, deniki em takkuva, smoke free kitchen undi, washing machine undi, nuvu na room ye vaduko, trust me bobby..i’m there for you. Kaani illu matram vadhili vellaku ra” seriously saji mere na ivani chepedhi? Started melting  at this moment.

Tanaki telusu ah illu anthem andhamga undadhu ani..kaani naluguru kalisi lekapothe entha pedha kota ayina dhanni illu anagalama asalu? Okadini aape process or convince chese process lo inkodu vachi against aythe obviously tanaki akada edhi convey cheyadam important oo adhe chestadu.

  • Saji the utmost emotional:

Ee process lo chinna tammudini kottadu ani.. bonny saji ni kodatadu. “Vadini penchindi nenu, vadi navvu chusi santhoshinchindi nenu alantiidi ipudu vade nanu kottadu”. Adhe time lo enno rojulu nundi tanatho untu, tana valla oka family ki life ichi, tana nunde “meeru nannu vadukuntunaru emo, motham pani nene chesthuna” ane mata vini tattukolepothadu. See apatidhaka tammullu enni anna, kottina bane untadu just tana partner nundi, 24/7 tanatho unde athanu alanti matalu vini suicide attempt chesthadu.

  • Saji the pain:

That seconds change of his body language..tana valla okadu chanipoyadu, adhi telisi valla wife complaint kuda ivvaledhu, almost murder case ayina bonny influence valla vadilesaru. Seriously atla em siksha veyyakunda unapude inka tattukolentha badha, forever guilt untayi. Kanisam physical pain teliste ayina edavachu ani current pole ki thala kottukune scene edipinchesindi asalu.

Tanakante chinnadhi ani telisina kaalla medha padathadu..papa ni kanisam daggaraki teeskuolepothadu. You know what the real pain is? When you can’t even cry. I even can’t explain the doctor scene..ufff finally saji was able to cry and it made me cry.

  • Saji the bangaram:

Let me take you to the first scene. FRankie apude intiki vachi valla rack lo unna Mother Mary, jesus ni hold chesthu una bomma chusthu untadu. Idhe manaki chepthundi tanu valla amma ni entha miss avthunado ani.

Andariki kannellu tepinchina scene.. saji, sathi ni apude puttina baby ni tana intiki teskuni vastadu. Exactly Sathi Mary dress veskuni vala babu ni jesus laga bomma lo ela undho ala hold chesthu una shot. Observe cheste same costumes untai.

For someone who is just into the movie, it’s a good and simple piece of storytelling. In one or the other way saji makes Frankie happy, Sathi homely and her partner’s soul rest in peace. My most favourite shot from the entire movie.

Saji chetta I can still hear your smile da (kikiki) But, Thank you for making me cry. Hatts off to Soubhin Shahir sir. His acting is so so raw and soulful. He is capable to create a magic on screen whatever. Finally the two qualities- ‘facing truths and mindset to accept it’: we need to have both qualities to be able to bring about any positive transformation in our lives.
