Jaudya Na Balasaheb Movie Review

Jaundya Na Balasaheb

Rating : ★★★

Welcomed by a DJ song, we expect the film to be a ride of joy de vivre. But that is not exactly what happens with Jaundya Na Balasaheb. Too much expectation can spoil the fun. But expectations with Jaundya Na Balesaheb were inevitable as it comes from the makers of critically acclaimed films like Valu and Deool which bagged many awards too.

The Story: Balasaheb played by Girish Kulkarni, is depressed when we meet him first. As we see him seeking remedies of his heart break, we realize the film is about his journey of self realization. In other words it might just be termed as a coming of age story. The reason of the heart break: two years ago Balasaheb’s wedding was cancelled a day before. The rich spoilt boy has not recovered from this rejection. What happens next is his tiff with his father. The accomplished political, Balasaheb’s father named Annasaheb, asks his son to stand on his own as a politician. This challenge is unacceptable for this luxury loving son. He then sets out to unfold his own path to find a way to convert his failure into success.

What comes next is drama! Literally. As Balasaheb finds solace in theatre, we see the second half of the film turning into an extravagant theatre affair. Balasaheb has now become an accomplished theatre personality. Along with this there is an array of characters belonging to theatre; a dancer, a comedian, a writer. To an extent these are all clichéd ones that we see in all films concerning theatre.

 Performers : Sai Tamhankar, Mohan Joshi, Dilip Prabhavalkar, Reema, Manava Naik, Bhau Kadam, Shrikant Yadav, Spruha Joshi, Kishore Chaugule and Savita Prabhune all are excellent performers. In fact the uninteresting clichéd characters also turn interesting thanks to this set of talented actors.

Music : Ajay Atul’s music may have just fallen short of expectation. Nevertheless, it works well with the theme of the film.

Director Girish Kulkarni : Writer, director, actor Girish Kulkarni has left no stone unturned in this venture. But after having watched the film, one feels that he has missed his aim by a small mark.

The audience who expect a film with substance will be disappointed as Jaundya Na Balasaheb is not exactly the kind of enjoyable political satire that we expect it to be from the title. What we get is political satire wrapped up in comedy and it comes with many loop holes. The story is digging deep into the character making the ideas in the script look very farfetched.

The major loop holes include the absurdity surrounding Balasaheb’s transformation into a theatre Guru. Within a span of few years, Balasaheb has become not only an accomplished actor but also trainer in acting. He has his own theatre group as well. He writes, directs and acts. That sounds all the more unreal.

The Last verdict: Jaundya Na Balasaheb may be entertaining if you don’t go to the theatres expecting a great realistic film. It might just turn out to be a good entertainer.
