Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj is a true warrior and a pioneer of Hindavi Svarajya. He is the integral part of our history. His warriors (maavlas) are equally important. Without their efforts and Maharaj we couldn’t have seen Svarajya ever. Farzand is a film which shows this era and makes you relive that time with amazing impact.
The story revolves around winning Panhala and adding it in Svarajya. At start Tanaji Malusare (Ganesh Yadav) leads a war with Mughals along with his warriors (maavle) but gets killed by Khan. While talking to Anaji Pant (Rahul Mehendale) Maharaj (Chinmay Mandlekar) tells him that we can’t do the crowning ceremony (Rajyabhishek) until we get Panhala. It’s important for women’s safety. The task goes to Maratha Wagh Kondaji Farzand (Ankit Mohan) and without giving it any second thoughts he accepts it with only 60 warriors. Now as we know the history he won Panhala but how did he do it? What were the situations, problems? How he and his team tackled it? All the things are worth watching.
Farzand is kind of a film which brings you to that era and makes you feel it. In terms of direction director Digpal Lanjekar is a studious director and he seems to have a clear vision of what he wants to portray and how. Digpal Lanjekar has an eye for casting and he has portrayed many actors in a complete new package. All the actors have done their part perfectly. Dr. Amol Kolhe has already raised the standards of Shivaji Maharaj’s onscreen character; so it was definitely a challenge for anyone to play that role with that impact; but Chinmay Mandlekar has portrayed Maharaj remarkable. He seemed perfect in terms of looks, acting and everything. Ankit Mohan has proved himself. His perfect physique and intense look gives the justice to his character pretty well. Sameer Dharmadhikari’s physique, his voice texture, his acting skills everything is encashed really good as Beshak Khan. Prasad Oak is undoubtedly a powerful actor who can play any role with ease. Here also he did it wonderful as bahurupi Bahirji Naik. Nikhil Raut once again shows that dedication matters and you can work amazing even when you step out of your comfort zone. Mrunmayee Deshpande has portrayed a beautiful warrior as Kesar. Yes, I used a term beautiful warrior because she has pulled it off that way. Her elegance, her beauty and then a warrior inside her everything makes it more appealing about her. Other than that whether it be Harish Dudhade or Aastad Kale or any other actor for that matter, they all have succeeded in making the characters alive. Many actors like Rajan Bhise, Anshuman Vichare, Digpal Lanjekar himself played cameos which suited good.
Apart from acting and direction Farzand has more positive aspects which are locations and music. Both seem apt according to storyline. Songs like Malhari, Gondhal, Tumhi Yetana Kela Eshara looks apt for situations and background like Pratipachchandralekhev or Vajrabahu creates the feel in story. According to inside news actors had to go through the training for almost two months for their roles, war sequences, language, etc. Their efforts paid off. Other than that story seems to be playing in a flow; there’s no unnecessary chaos. It was said to be a Marathi Bahubali but nothing seems too larger than life. 60 warriors against 2500 warriors seem quite hard to believe but as we know history has proved that Marathas never needed a huge number of fighters. Farzand is a treat and much awaited film for all the followers of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj and for those who are not really into history it’s a good movie which can make you interested in it.
Overall Review :
All in all it’s a good movie. Concept, direction, execution, casting, acting, music and feel of the movie makes it worth appreciating. At times it can give you goose bumps. Director Digpal Lanjekar once again proves that he can handle historical themes pretty easily without losing its impact. Farzand is worth watching and it’s a good start for weekend.
