Good movie, convincing acting.
9 August 2012 | by (Thane, India) – See all my reviews

Tukaram is really nice film and all the credit goes to Jitendra Joshi, He has done very convincing acting and has succeeded in portraying Saint Tukaram. Songs are nice as well but could be better. Full marks to editing and casting though and movie has the potential to take you back to old times. Talking about other actors then there is no scope to point out any mistakes in casting and since the movie revolves around life of Saint Tukaram then other things does not matter that much. Direction is exceptionally good. Since the genre of this movie is Biography the movie seems to be made while keeping that in mind and hence there is neither unnecessary Drama or Surprises nor any loud acting and more time is given to cover up the real story of Saint Tukaram and produce detailed environment of that old time. So if you want to know real life of Saint Tukaram watch this movie. However I was expecting to listen more 'Abhangas' made by Saint Tukaram so I was less than satisfied in that area.
