Breezy tale about finding one's inner child.
12 December 2016 | by the_wrinkled_mindSee all my reviews

'YZ' is yet another delightful product to emerge from the booming new-wave Marathi film industry, which is daring to think differently.

At core, YZ is a tale about the 33 year old, virgin, history lecturer, ABaB/Gajanan (played brilliantly by Sagar Deshmukh). Sagar is the quintessential nerd who hasn't grown up to be a man. Having invested all his youth in acquiring other essential things in life like degree,knowledge from books, job, etc, Gajanan never allowed himself to blossom into an adult, leaving him timid. He is scared of women, people and confrontations. He is terrified of expressing himself. Until he finds Batees (again wonderfully played by Akshay Tanksale), the complete opposite of him.

When Batees vows to make him more confident, we are left with a surprise. What Gajanan ends up learning in the end of the movie is a delightful little message for the audience.

The movie is from the stable of Sameer Vidwans and Kshitij Patwardhan, who gave us the equally wonderful Double Seat. The dialogues are one of the strongest attributes of this movie. Sai Tamhankar in a different kind of role is wonderful to see. Once again, Mukta Barve, who has a small part, steals the show. She is by far one of the best actresses in the country.

Go find your inner child with YZ. It's truly a beautiful movie.
