In Tribhanga: Tedhi Medhi Crazy, Mithila Palkar is seen as a more subdued character than in her previous youthful roles in the films Muramba (2017), Karwaan (2018) or even as Kavya in the Netflix series Little Things.

The actress plays Masha, a married woman in a patriarchal household, in the upcoming family drama directed by Renuka Shahane. In the film, Masha craves for security and is full of love for her children, hinting at the lack of family she felt as a child. Her mother Anu (Kajol) and her grandmother Nayan (Tanvi Azmi) have a shaky relationship.

Palkar doesn’t believe she has any similarities with Masha. “The choices that Masha made were the ones I would never make," she said, "but having said that I won’t judge her for that because I know where she came from and why she made those choices. I think the one thing that binds us together is that whatever the decisions we take, we are going to be judged for some of them."

She continued, “I feel like we both are aware that we have the freedom to make a choice and are very strongly opinionated about the choices that we make — whether or not they fit in anybody else’s build or are in sync with anyone else’s ideas, principles, or values. We know that it’s a choice that is going to make us happy and we have taken this call being very self-aware of what may or may not happen. I think that is the one thing that binds us together, but otherwise I don’t think there is anything similar. She is quite peaceful actually and a very quiet person who is to herself. I am quite the opposite of that — loud!”

Tribhanga, referring to the Odissi dance pose that is asymmetrical, follows the lives of the three female characters and their unconventional life choices. The Netflix film is being released today.
