Storyline

He goes ahead with the decision, which forever changes him and his family, as he ends up torn between his artistic passion and his societal prestige. Written by Anonymous

All art requires courage which stems from a sense of outrage
21 November 2010 | by AvinashPatalaySee all my reviews

Good marathi movies are far in between and when a movie like "Natrang" (yes, its not "Natarang") comes by it certainly qualifies for a definite watch. The director (Ravi Jadhav) deserves a standing ovation. Every soul associated with the movie has poured his heart out and it clearly reflects in the proceedings. The narrative hooks the audience from the word go. The plot is engaging, screenplay engrossing and editing gives it a sleek feel. Noteworthy is the realistic touch in the garb of performance, location and the icing on the cake namely the language and dialect.

۩ Atul Kulkarni:: If there is any reason should you be propelled to watch the movie then make it Atul Kulkarni. Pay special attention to the commitment of Atul from portrayal of a strong physique labourer to a breathing life into the namby-pamby pansy. Nothing short of perfection.

۩ Sonali (with an "ee") Kulkarni:: In comparison to protagonist her character is subdued. But very pretty indeed, the green-eyed beauty captures attention from the word go. Needed more screen time for her character blossom into full glory.

۩ Vibhawari Deshpande:: Sadly her character got completely relegated to backseat resulting to a dwarfed character role. Editing perhaps?

۩ Kishore Kadam:: Effective portrayal. No string attached performance and a very strong screen presence.

۩ Amruta Khanvelkar:: What makes her item number etched in the minds of the audience is her screen presence and the composition of the lavani "Wajle Ki Barah" itself. Fantastic!!

Finally Zee Talkies should be applauded for backing this project. We need more of this.
