This is my 3rd Marathi film after “Shwaas” and “Katyar Kaljat Ghusli”. This is a brilliantly made film. While it is a romance film, it is not like those typical cliched Bollywood Romantic films, but this one is very pure and very realistically portrayed. We could feel the emotions the pair has shown. It’s about a lower-caste boy and an upper caste girl who fall in love with each other. With a lot of tensions between the two family members not accepting each other, they go through a lot of hardships to be together. The movie ends with a shocking and tragic climax which will just give you chills.
The best thing I like about regional films is that they are more natural and pure, and they don’t try to glamorize too much.
The direction is superb. So is the screenplay. The cinematography is just beautiful. They showed the village in Maharashtra very beautifully. There are also some beautiful dialogues. The movie is full of newcomers. Debutants Akash Thosar and Rinku Rajguru did a brilliant job, it doesn’t seem like they were newcomers, but they did a good job as if they were professionals. They also shared wonderful chemistry. So did the other supporting actors. The music in the movie is brilliant. Ajay-Atul are exceptionally talented. They are definitely the composers you should watch out for.
“Sairat” is a tragic love story which will make you think about a lot of things. Please do watch this film! It is a must!
My Rating:- 4/5
