Break Point Season 1 Story

This web series is an original web series of Zee5. Will tell the story of a tennis pair that won Wimbledon in 1999. We are talking about Mahesh Bhupathi and Leander Paes. His magic on the break point court shows how much the audience loves him. These tennis players will tell their stories.

One of the most accomplished tennis players ever in the doubles category, Leander Paes and Mahesh Bhupathi gave Indian tennis a big shot. They won a few major titles together but kept falling apart time and again. 20 years after the events unfolded, the two talk about their controversial breakup in this seven-part documentary.

So far you have known the summary and story of this web series – Now it is the turn to review this web series, so let’s start – Of course, before this there were legends like Vijay Amritraj and Ramanathan Krishnan, but a chubby of Kolkata Indian tennis got a new height after Khiladi and in the 90s a stoic yet determined kid from Bangalore entered the fray. Paes was already a star when he decided to team up with Bhupathi.

Together they dreamed of winning a Grand Slam, uprooting our ‘gora complex’ and making us believe that Indian players can be tennis champions. Given their distinguished achievements and potential, the cracks in their relations were of national interest.

The break point is the ‘normal people’ of a turbulent tennis relationship. It’s frustrating to see two people side by side, unable to say what they really feel.

Filmmaker Nitesh Tiwari (Dangal, Chhichhore) and wife Ashwini Iyer Tiwari (Panga, Bareilly Ki Barfi) get behind the wheel of the director to break this ‘on again, off’ equation.

They painstakingly dig into Leander and Mahesh’s combination of push and pull, power dynamics, fire and water. The players face each other this time in a solo competition as the director twirls burning questions that in the past felt unanswered.

Like a game of tennis, your eyes wander between the emotionally charged, tear-eyed Leander and the straight-faced, determined Mahesh as they strike each other from opposite sides of the court. They may blame the other for the separation but the hurt, pain, love and mutual respect are shared.

The break point doesn’t just touch the Paes-Bhupathi clash and uses it to sell a series. It really delivers what it promises. The series is an in-depth study of character and psyche – an alpha of Leander, who on the surface sounds expressive, but who really matters.

Stops her and Mahesh’s an introvert, who bottles up, internalizes everything which only escalates an issue later. The only thing that surprisingly goes beyond the desire to win between these two very different individuals is their lack of communication. Silence does more harm than words.

What you think you didn’t say. The series sees them listing their differences, reasons for disagreement, can they turn things around if given a chance.

The documentary tries to get to the root of the issue by focusing solely on the people. Families, friends from related circles also have their opinions but they are supporting characters.

You want more third party experts who can look at the situation objectively like veteran sports journalist Rohit Brijnath does, to give a broader perspective. The he/she said narrative becomes a bit monotonous and tedious, reminiscent of sitting through counseling sessions between different partners. You want to give the same amount of time for self-examination.

Paes complains of lack of gratitude to Bhupathi and the latter finds Paes to be a ‘my way or highway’ kind of person. What do players think of themselves as individuals? This part deserved more prominence than it gets. The series also lacks light-hearted moments, anecdotes that could have made it more engaging.
