Can currency notes of a higher denomination change your life?
It would've been better for the masses had 'Ek Hazarachi Note' released prior to elections; director Srihari Sathe's message would've enlightened thousands of illiterate voters. It's a story that tells you about poverty, illiteracy, farmer suicides and corrupt administration.
Budhi (Usha Naik) is an aged mother who has lost her farmer son due to indebtedness. A local leader (Ganesh Yadav) seeking re-election compensates her, giving her a few currency notes of 1000. However, this incident changes her life forever.
The film wins your hearts due to its simplicity. Traditional 'Khandeshi' language creates its own impact. The message is clear – money brings its own set of problems, townsmen will continue to degrade the countrymen and poverty is our biggest enemy. Similarly, authorities can never be honest and impartial. Shrikant Bojewar puts these facts perfectly onto paper.
Usha Naik steals the show as Budhi. But my choice is Sandeep Pathak for his supporting role of Sudama. He has matured after 'Varhad Nighalay Londonla'. Shailendra Barve's music carries a melancholy, suited for the film's theme. It is painful, yet wonderful.
I am going with four out of five stars for 'Ek Hazarachi Note'. The film is a tribute to the director's grandparents. And we must pay our respects as well!!
