Reviewer’s Thumb Mark
Director Milind Dhaimade’s ‘Tu Hai Mera Sunday’ is refreshing in all sense – be it the characters, story, script and the performances. The film gives you a reason to ponder on what you are doing with your life. The subtle questions that emerge while we watch are – Am I too caught up in the rat race of the corporate world? Do I fear to fight against the odds in my life? Do I really care for my dear ones? Do I love my life? The questions are endless…
There are too many characters but it doesn’t distract you because the characters are distinct and every life introduced here connects you back with your own life and people around you. ‘Tu Hai Mera Sunday’ is about to know what we have unknowingly lost in the hustle and bustle of a city life. The trees, rivers, mountains, beaches, a football or a cricket match or a lovely walk hand in hand with your dearest Sunday (Your Love).

It’s the story of five friends from different walks of life in a busy city called Mumbai who are constantly in search of a playground/space to play football. Playing football is an excuse, actually, it is to relieve themselves from the stress that has stealthily crept into their life. Avinash Tiwari (as Rashid), Nakul Bhalla (as Mehernosh), Barun Sobti (As Arjun), Vishal Malhotra (As Dominic) and Jay Upadhyay (As Jayesh) are natural and gives a superlative performance. They appear to be so real that you feel you know them and see them every day in your colony.
What is worth mentioning is about Avinash Tiwari’s character as Rashid and Barun Sobtis Arjun. Rashid leads a life which is an organized chaos and Arjun frets on the mere mention of a stressful ambitious corporate high profile job. Arjun prefers to be an independent consultant and Rashid still in his search of what he needs in life. Avinash Tiwari is one guy who is a promising actor. Hope to see him doing more challenging roles.

The ladies here like Shahana Goswami (as Kavya), Rasika Duggal, Rama Joshi, and Maanvi Gagroo (as Vinita) are stupendous performances who add value to the story by their characters. These ladies represent the agony, fear, constraints and miseries which they are fighting with and they also prove that they are brave hearts to design their life by having the ability to choose what is right for them irrespective of what others think. All of them are inspiring.
Shivkumar Subrahmanium as Kavya’s senile old father portrays how simple it is to be happy in life if you forget everything that doesn’t hold value to you any more in life. Just be there ‘here and now’; you end up on the shore of blissfulness.

In short, ‘Tu Hai Mera Sunday’ is about belongingness, ownership towards one’s own life and valuing relationships. It has the right mix of emotions, humour and positivity towards life after all ‘Life Hai’ as one of the characters says positively looking at her deaf and dumb boys abandoned by her husband. Do not miss this beautiful movie that teaches you to find your ‘Sunday’ and be there with your ‘Sunday’ always in good times and bad times.
