Storyline

Suli an innocent, happy carefree girl tethering on the brink of womanhood is unexpectedly forced into a life of servitude to the local deity when the uneducated, rural community in which she resides compels her to live a life of subjugation and serfdom on account of rampant superstitions that plagues the village. As Suli struggles to adjust to the new life unexpectedly thrust upon her, a far cry from the dreams and aspirations she once harbored, she meets Tayappa, a man forced to drape a sari and live the life of a woman and a homosexual as he too is a victim of the same circumstances that afflict her life. Brought together by the plight of their similar circumstances and wretched futures, Suli and Tayappa develop a warm and cherishing camaraderie, which eventually blossoms into love. The two gentle, wounded souls seek solace and comfort in each others company. Together they once again dream of living a happy, normal life, but are forced to face the wrath of a highly disapproving ... Written by Official Site

One of the best movies!
20 July 2013 | by (Pune) – See all my reviews

Before I start, Let me tell you, I don't write reviews generally because I think it is time consuming and not worth it. But when it comes to appreciating some great piece of art like this, I felt I should take some time and do the needful. You must have understood that I am going to praise this movie. You are right! This is one of the best movies I have seen including all the amazing Hollywood/Bollywood flicks. Story is new, dark, and extremely focused and does not lose the track at any point. The acting department holds some incredibly talented Marathi actors especially the lead actors Upendra Limaye and Mukta Barve. This is the best I have seen from Upendra. Direction is quite good. The locations and camera angles create the necessary darkness required by the storyline. At the same time shows some beautiful situations to support the love story. In the end, one cannot forget the biggest contribution - Music. Ajay-Atul has done an awe- inspiring job. I will recommend this movie to everyone any day!
