Rennaisance for the Marathi Film Industry!!
4 August 2010 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Marathi actors have never been short of talent. Unfortunately, the industry has been degenerating gradually, possible because of talented actors moving to bollywood, lower investments, etc. However, with films like Zenda, Harishchandrachi Factory and Natarang, one can safely say the industry has been resuscitated. Atul Kulkarni, Kishore Kadam and the others leave you spellbound with their performances. Their performances are so mezmerising, that you will find yourself watching a stage performance. The direction is not flawless, particularly in the last few minutes, where you get the impression that the director was tired. However the tightly written script and gripping story keep you on the edge for most of the time. The actors too must be credited for the perfect oration of Rural Marathi. Hats off to Ajay-Atul for their exceptional background score and music. The depiction of lavni & tamasha was maybe a bit too over-the-top. Overall, Natarang is an OUTSTANDING film!!
