The film deals with an honest police office played by Riteish Deshmukh who is transferred to small and dusty village. He is a non-violent police officer who one day gets beaten by the goons of land mafia led by Nana Londhe played by Jitendra Joshi. However, the next day Mauli returns to trash the goons thus making him in the bad books of Londhe. Then starts the villain vs hero game, which come along with loads of twists and turns.
The film happens to be a follow up movie for Riteish Deshmukh. Though the makers had released the teaser long back but it took long to see the film finally emerging on the big screen. The director seems to have tried a different genre in which he has less exposure. He has entered into a territory, which he has never dealt before. Hence there are several hits and misses with more the latter and less the former. However, the director has tried to add some meaningful message in it but as you dig in deep, it appears to be a mass entertainer, which he also understands as well. Thus we see the cop playing different roles right from a cop that fights to doing a number of other things like romance and all.
Taking one step inside the film, it seems that Riteish alone has taken the film on his shoulders keeping the audience tied up. He is able to win hearts with fierce action and at the same time take you for an emotional ride as well. On the other side, Jitendra Joshi has been simply menacing playing the negative character. Thus has played a decent fashion in it. The lady played by Saiyami called Renuka seemed with an average performance and was completely overshadowed by the lead actor. Lastly, Siddharth Jadhav too has done a wonderful job playing his character. The other aspects like dialogues, screenplay, action and direction seemed okay.
Mauli The Last Word
The film lives up to the expectations when it comes to the lead actor in it. Despite the flaws i it, the movie is real to its soul and body. It can be a great entertainer film despite going predictable at times. It can be a decent watch for people who are the fans of Riteish Deshmukh.
