Set in the 70's in rural India, four 9th grade kids were writing their destiny. Joshi (14) is madly in love with Shirodkar (14) a beautiful Indian looking girl. Both study in the same class. The age old question "What is love anyway?"
Dinkar Maruti Bhosle, a common Marathi man with an identity crisis ends up being the Crusader against threats to his existance & identity as a 'Marathi Maanus'. In his battle against all odds & evils, he is assisted by Shivaji Maharaj.
A forest officer on a mission to capture a supposedly dangerous bull in a remote village.
This is a light hearted film with a simple subject. The treatment and pace of the movie keeps it alive and you're gradually introduced to the bull and stories/rumors about him, making you wonder, if its really dangerous etc. The officer's brother volunteers to shoot a documentary of the entire mission which makes the film esp interesting.
A well made film where you start knowing and getting involved with the characters, especially the simple minded villagers. The language has an authentic flavor and so do the actors. Good thing, they didn't use much make up or deliberately colorful clothes. Not an art film and not a big budget movie, but if you like simplistic entertainment, this one's not to be missed.
Atul Kulkarni is pleasant to watch and other actors are also nice. The bull has done a good job too.
Editing could be better, as sometimes you feel a bit lost; or the story lessens grip at times. But that's critically speaking only. The duration of the film is just right and no songs and dances makes it particularly more realistic and engrossing.
Unlike a village theme, there's no strong politics, rivalry, bitterness etc.
The sound track is catchy and sounds quite acoustic.The music sounds distinctly local. No loud surrounds, or sound fx etc. Thankyou so so much. The music and visuals, the overall treatment all are well balanced.
Is the bull captured? Is the mission easy? Go watch the movie to find out. If you go with an open mind; and if you like easy viewing, you will definitely appreciate the film. It will make you smile and feel good for sure. A sweet film.
Looking for similar from the same team. Give us more good cinema.
