Paresh Mokashi, the director of the wonderful movie Harishchandrachi Factory has come back with a bang! He leaves no chance to complain, and leaves us with a big grin as we exit the theatre. Elizabeth Ekadashi simply leaves you awed.
Its a simple story of children trying to protect their 'Elizabeth' in times when family is in financial troubles. Mom is a widow, and she runs the house on a handloom, which the bank takes away and they now have to pay back a sum of five thousand rupees. How will she manage it, especially when the children are so clinging on to dear Elizabeth?
Though the story is centered on the financial crisis of a poor family , there is absolutely no unnecessary melodrama here. Aai fights her way relentlessly with no breakdowns, yet makes us feel her pain. The film is all about the kids, Nyana, his cute little sister, ganya and other friends. They all have put up fantastic performances. The tone of the film changes towards the end, it turns cute to ugly.
The story incorporates several themes, which though irrelevant to the main plot, make the film more relatable - like Prostitution, Anti-Superstition Bill. The vibrant streets of Pandharpur are a visual delight.
In conclusion, this has to be one of the finest marathi film of this year. Definitely not to be missed!
