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.

As they say " An Epic Love Story"
30 April 2016 | by nikhil-71178See all my reviews

Saw the noon show very next day of "Sairat" release day, Movie started with a cricket match in village, Right from the starting you are in different era and you came out as a full of all sort feelings exists.

Not seen any nice movie in last few years with this very simple story, BUT its Cast and Direction and script and editing made it one hell of romantic drama, though cinematography can be better. The Lead Actress who is debut like many actors in movie is fabulous, you can literally feel her innocence, love, anger. Supporting cast especially Pratik and Sallya made their presence.

Romantic movie has redefined yet again by Nagrath Majule the director of movie. He already has made his mark through his debut movie "Fandry". Dialogs and script is winner here. Movie wanders in your mind for long long time after you left seat in cinema hall.
