This is easily one of the best Marathi movies of all times. Its a story of a mentally challenged individual (played by Dilip Prabhavalkar) and his journey through life. Dilip Prabhavalkar plays the role to perfection and really makes you fall in love with the character. He is by far one of the finest thespians on the Marathi stage today. He received the Maharashtra State award for best actor for his portrayal of a disabled boy in this movie. Direction by Sanjay Surker is fantastic. Acting by Sulabha Deshpande, Dilip Kulkarni, Ashok Saraf & Smita Talvalkar is also top notch. I really hope that this movie is remade in Hindi some day.
