Storyline

Sairat is a love story, as advertised. Aarchi , a rich upper class girl falls for her classmate Parshya , a poor but smart boy from the lower social strata. The magic happens, and they start seeing each other. Secretly at first, but they get bolder with passing time. The problem is that Aarchi is not just from the upper class, her father is a powerful politician, and her brother Prince is following in on his footsteps. The entire affair is a recipe for trouble, and as expected, trouble arrives. With the help of Parshya's friends, Baalya and Salya, they decide to make a run for it, but fate has other plans.

Sairat - brilliant work by Sir Nagraj Manjule !
21 May 2016 | by hiharshadSee all my reviews

Sairat - It took me almost a week to recover from the powerful impact of this movie.

Some high points: Rinku Rajguru, the lead in this movie is just 15 years old and has received national award for the role of 'Aarchi'. Film was selected in 66th Berlin International Film Festival. Yaad Lagla is the first symphony from this movie recorded in Hollywood, CA (first of its kind for Bollywood) Magical compositions from Ajay - Atul. In just 3 weeks this movie has earned 60 crores and still counting. This movie is becoming so much popular that special shows are arranged in some places at 12 AM and 3 AM. And as per NEWS there will be remakes made in other languages including Telugu, Hindi and Gujarati.

Nagraj Manjule Sir you are a brilliant director and have created yet another mind-blowing gem ! 'Aarchi' (Rinku Rajguru) is the soul of this movie and have portrayed much needed rock solid, contentful, firm and powerful lead character who is madly in love with 'Parshya'. 'Parshya' is colored beautifully by Akash Thosar, an innocent dude who falls for Aarchi. Great background scores, amazing casting (special mention for Parshya's friends and Amma), superb cinematography, a heart touching story and direction makes it a complete Marathi movie. Aarchi and Parshya's bond leaves a significant impression on your heart. Clashes of classes and societies wickedly messy ways in enforcing the order are shown very realistically.

Team 'Sairat' you totally rocked ! PS: And yes people including me, danced like anything during 'Zingat' and yes even in Dallas ;)
