Taking on a new role can be a challenge but Shreyas Talpade has proved that a good actor can transform himself into any character with ease. His new film Setters is out, and Talpade, who had recently been garnering roles in the comic space, has broken all shackles and proved that he is made for bigger things.
Playing a negative role for the first time in his acting career, he has effortlessly portrayed a powerful mafia of the education world. Praising his craft and natural acting are many, right from the film fraternity to critics and audiences alike.
Shreyas is effortless and makes you wonder why he doesn’t get roles that are worthy of his talent - Bombay Times
Marathi-Hindi actor Shreyas Talpade has really been given a raw deal by Hindi cinema through most of his career despite his fantastic performance in Nagesh Kukunoor’s fantastic 2005 film Iqbal. In recent years he has been reduced to playing secondary and tertiary roles in the Golmaal slapstick comedy series. He plays Apurva in Setters with conviction, and is the best thing about the film - FirstPost
Talpade is surely the top performer here and closely manages the hinterland tongue and his character’s mannerisms - Mumbai Mirror
Taking a look down memory lane, we realise that Talpade has always displayed a load of talent in every role he has taken on. His mute character in Iqbal proved that Talpade has metamorphosed himself and surprised audiences with soul-stirring performances time and again. With Setters, he has moved the benchmark even higher and we look forward to seeing him in meatier roles.
