Arguing is an art though that's the only thing that we cannot do to defend this movie.
16 May 2019 | by tejas_nayakSee all my reviews

Just saved by Mohan Joshi... It is famously said that no doubt Pune is the birthplace of the art of arguing, the same cannot be done to defend the quality of this movie. Mohan Joshi Sir is damn perfect in his role and character portrayal and the producer/director should be thankful to him to salvage whatever quality that the audience sees in this movie.

It seems to me that Mr. Deshpande is going through some severe "Mid-Life Crisis" for his desire to see himself as one of the characters on the silver-screen. He may be one of the few Marathi personas in the industry who is that fit at the age of 40+(your age clearly shows on screen Mr. Deshpande) and therefore it is all the more difficult to digest the fact that he can be the son of an actress visibly younger than himself on the screen (reminded me of Naseeruddin Shah's Suryakant in 'The Dirty Picture'). Guess that is one of the reason that we see such shoddy direction by him.

In parts where Mohan Joshi lightens up the screen it seems that he was there to give tips to the director how to shoot the scene and what should the dialogues be. Vandana Gupte is fantastic as usual, seldom do we see an actress who sparks the screen and transfers her energy onto you breaking the wall of the white screen. Mahesh Manjrekar, Asavari Joshi sadly had no work apart from showing the extreme religiousness similar tö 'Babaji Laksha Asu Dya' from Julun Yeti Reshimgathi. Other Supporting casts such as VIshakha Subhedar, Pravin Tarde, Vijay Nikam are just fillers in what could have been a good execution of a hilarious story based out of Pune. Had been a Punekar in this past decade and though I could relate to the Sadashiv Pethi attitude, at times it seems that the director has stretched this practical quality of a Punekar into a joke. Thumbs Down for that.

Quoting the lines from the review by "Abhijeet Thitey" in Times of India, "What could have been a great film with better treatment, becomes just an average entertainer due to the lack of it" - completely due to the script not being bottle tight and also it falling into the hands of an inexperienced director.
