After the huge success of Lay Bhari Riteish Deshmukh and his team are back with one more action packed and power packed movie ‘Mauli’ which is released today all over Maharashtra. Aditya Sarpotdar directorial Mauli is filled with many surprises. The film is produced by Genelia Deshmukh with Mumbai Film Company.
Mauli is a story of Inspector Mauli Sarjerao Deshmukh (Riteish Deshmukh). Mauli gets postedin Kaapur village and as he starts working he gets to know about the real problems in that village. Kaapur village is under the terror of Nana Londhe (Jitendra Joshi). No one can dare to cross Nana and whoever tries that has to pay for it with their life. Nana runs almost all the illegal businesses. He literally rules the village. As Mauli enters in Kaapur village he also crosses paths with the Assal Masale Vali (the real spices girl) ‘Renuka’ (Saiyami Kher). Renuka is a strong girl who has her say and takes the stand against the wrong without any fear. Mauli and Renuka’s this encounter sparks the fire of interest between them. Mauli is a character with many shades and Riteish Deshmukh has portrayed all of them really well. Where Mauli has his own swag, his style,his courage he is soft hearted, soft natured and honest as well. These things mentioned about Mauli’s character above are very contrast itself but you will understand the beauty of this while enjoying the movie. Kaapur village is filled with interesting characters. One of them is Kadaknath (Siddharth Jadhav) whois a fake cop but wants to be the real cop at least for a day.
Will Mauli manage to end Nana’s terror? Will Mauli’s this fight affect the villagers? What will happen to the blooming romance between Mauli and Renuka? What is the source of Mauli’s courage? The story revolves around all these questions. After the interval movie looks slightly stretched but overall it’s worth watching.
All the characters are established well and strongly. We often watch many action cinemas but Mauli seems to be more appealing. Though it’s a drama, masala film but still it can feel more connectable to many; because, we all have various shades hidden in us. Mauli is a character which shows that anyone can overcome any problems with courage. Mauli is not a superhero, he is not completely strong throughout the film but yes he tries to take stand against the wrong, he fights his fears with courage. His fight is tough, he has faced defeat but his morale has built up every time.
Story has many more surprises. Riteish Deshmukh is one of the most popular faces and he did the job very well this time too. Saiyami Kher is debuting in Marathi with this film. Jitendra Joshi, Siddharth Jadhav, Shrikant Yadav and all the actors have done their parts very well and have beautifully portrayed their characters as per the requirement of the script. Screenplay and dialogues are written well by Kshitij Patwardhan and has their own swag. As per the music Ajay-Atul’s music and Guru Thakur’s lyrics managed to create the magic again. Well, do we really need to write anything else when we have such beautiful trio for the music? Among all the songs ‘Dhuvun Taak’ manages to steal the spotlight of course because it’s that peppy number and the most important reason is most loved pair Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia Deshmukh. ‘Pandharichi Maay’ song is also trending. We watch the films through the director’s eyes and we must say Aditya Sarpotdar’s clear vision has been beneficial for the film. Also, all the action sequences have their equal share in Mauli’s success. One thing which should be mentioned is Mauli is people’s film. Enjoy this bundle of full on entertainment in your nearest theaters.
We wish Mauli and team all the best.
