Not bad at all
29 October 2015 | by peter-ryan8See all my reviews

The story focuses on the characters from famous comedy books Golaberij and Vyakti Ani Valli written by one of his own kind Marathi writer Pu La Deshpande. A little disconnected because the stories switch in context, but not hard to catch the flow at all. I loved it because I had read the books little too many times. But should not be a problem if you have not read the books either. Some characters such as Nanda by Subodh Bhave and Antu Barva by Dilip Prabhavalkar are really awesome. I also like the actor who performs Pu La. He looks exactly like Pu La. Some stories like Narayan do not take a grip while the story moves to a new character. Some actors could have been better, but every thing can be forgivable when the story is about Pu La.
