Touching tale


Nagesh Bhosale has handled a sensitive topic very deftly and manages to touch a chord with heartfelt performance as the distraught Nandu. His facial expression gives away his sorry plight. The role of Rajaram is played by Makrand Anaspure and he does justice to his character that is disturbed by the troubles of his fellow farmers and wants to bail them out of it. Sayaji Shinde as Vishnupant Bhosale, the agriculture minister, has a small but very impressive role. This is veteran actor Nilu Phule's last film before he passed away recently. Despite his age and ill health, the veteran actor has done a brilliant job of a distressed father, whose farmer-son commits suicide thinking that the father would be compensated by the government for his death. Credit must also be given to the writers, Sham Petkar and Arvind Jagtap who have weaved a sensitive tale that highlights the plight of the farmers in far off villages and leaves an impact. It also showcases the small details that the farmer has to face and that are little known to anyone. The camerawork by Suresh Suvarna is outstanding. Every frame looks fresh and appealing. He has used a colours for different scenes thus making it very impressive. The effort of the five producers Sayaji Shinde, Makrand Anaspure, Nagesh Bhosle, Laxmikant Khabiya and Suresh Suvarna is also laudable for bringing up issues that are not known and highlighting them through a tale.
One star for the impressive story and one for Nagesh Bhosale's brilliant acting and direction.
