Saina [2021] Movie Review

Champions are not born overnight. You are made Usha’s daughter Saina Nehwal and Harvir Singh Nehwal, a Haryanvi couple from Hyderabad, became the first Indian woman after Prakar Spadukorn in 2015 and the second ranked number one in the world in badminton. I became an Indian woman. She is only 31 years old.

If you’re a sports enthusiast, fly around with her trainer Pullela Gopichand and know why she owes everything to her parents and the development of a humble middle class. But there’s always more to the story than you can see. Even a single sport has a crew of well-meaning and professionals who help rebuild self-confidence when it shatters.

After a nearly deadly injury, she sees the world passing by, trapped in her house for months, and tells her Sina’s mother. She said, “You are Saina Nehwal. You are Shernihai. Don’t let the world or the media think about anything else. Self-doubt is your greatest enemy. Shaq ko apney dil mein ghar na karne de na. It’s a mother whose passionate ambition to make her daughter the best in the world marks the beginning of Sina.

Sina knows how to be desperate and acts as a reverberant ode to her mother who is hopelessly optimistic. Most Indian biographical sports dramas stick to templates for safety. What you get is a Hagiography that rarely scratches the surface or goes beyond what is obvious. Struggle, the road to glory, fate and resurrection-you know the drill. Athletes are respected in the country, so not many people dare to mention the skeleton of the closet.

Amor Gupte also keeps his story simple. No mention is made of Sina’s rivalry with PV Sindhu. The filmmaker emphasizes the well-known ups and downs of Sina’s life so that his storytelling isn’t patronized or overly patriotic. This movie is a dramatized explanation, so I’m not sure if that’s true, but her mother is barbaric when she sees her daughter under the age of 12 happily kissing the runner-up medal show. Before you slap, don’t think twice.

There is no place for a runner-up in the world of sports. The young and striking Sina is immediately comforted by her father, who explains why winning is everything for his wife. You expect the incident to shake the girl’s beliefs and her thoughts about the difficult journey ahead, but she raises her head, keeps her racket high, and shatters her shortcomings. Gupte delves into the spirit of his character, and conversations about parents who want to realize their dreams through their children find little exit.
