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 Zaala Ji !!!!!
2 May 2016 | by ganeshpawar-94See all my reviews

Nagraj Manjule does it again !!! He proved that he is not a one film wonder kind of filmmaker and he is here to stay .

Marathi cinema is proving its greatness now and then by giving back to back gems like this movie !!!!

I had some doubts about this movie as I felt it was same old love story but thank you Nagraj Manjule for proving me wrong . This is the best movie I've ever seen on this topic .

Sairat is love story of Parshya and Archi. Story though a bit predictable but screenplay is excellent . First half of the movie is funny and entertaining but it's the second half that will hit you hard . Love scenes between the leads are lovable and you can relate to them . You will feel for the pair . Like Fandry , Manjule once again showed mirror to our society .

Music by the great duo Ajay-Atul is great as always , their music adds more to the love story . Music will make you feel the love between the leads .

Acting by the cast needs special mention . Not just the lead pair but whole cast did a great job . Rinku Rajguru got a special mention at prestigious National awards , no more needed to says , she is just awesome . Akshay Thosar is very natural . He makes Parshya look very real .

But the characters of Pradeep and Salim deserves accolades for their performance . Arbaz Shaikh as Salim is a friend in need a friend indeed kind of a friend . He is always there whenever Parshya needs him . Suraj Pawar as prince has brief but significant role , and he is just perfect. But Tanaji Galgunde as Pradeep was my favorite. He got right under the skin of the character . He is lovable and funny .

Camera work was just awesome , every scene is shot so beautifully . Cinematography is one of the best features of the movie . Though movie is quit long but not at all boring . It is very real and raw movie . Second half of the movie is executed perfectly . This is the kind of the movie which will make you think about it even after the movie is over . It will leave you with the feeling which cannot be explained , it's a must watch for sure !!!
