Me Shivaji Raje Bhosale Boltoy (Marathi) - Notepad

wogma rating: The keen should rent; else TV (?)
quick review:

Rock-solid dialogues in conveniently placed situations. Will certainly appeal to the Marathi Manoos.

Plot Summary

Every minute of Mr. Bhosale's (Sachin Khedekar) life, he is reminded of what a loser he is because he is a Maharashtrian. He reaches the point of frustration where inspiration strikes and he compels himself and his family to take charge of their lives.

What Worked

  • The flashbacks to Shivaji Maharaj's times.

What did not

Note: This section simply lists the things that I did not like in this movie. This is not the overall impression about this movie. Please read the full review here

  • All the exaggeration related to the plight of the Marathi Manoos. About last names being down-market, how only a Marathi person should live within his means, deprived of shirt he's watching, etc. Now any of these things could/would happen to anyone who behaved in that way. Such 'putting down' is not reserved for Maharastrians. So the very basis seems lame.
