Language: Marathi
Cast: Subodh Bhave, Madan Deodhar, Anand Ingale, Kishore Kadam, Prathamesh Parab, Supriya Pathare, Rohit Phalke, Shashwati Pimplikar, Bhagyashree Shankpal, Amruta Subhash, Vishakha Subhedar, Sai Tamhankar, Satish Tare, Avinash Narkar,
Producer: Riteish Deshmukh, Uttung Hitendra Thakur
Director: Ravi Jadhav
Music Director: Vishal-Shekhar
Cinematographer: Mahesh Limaye

Balak Palak is Ravi Jadhav's third movie after successful movies Natrang and Balgandharv. So I was eager to watch his next movie. And then the subject movie is very intriguing. It pulled me to the theatre and I had to watch this movie.
Although protagonists of the movie are all the kids mainly, it is not a kid’s movie. Movie talks about very important issue of sex education for kids which is still a taboo for many parents. It shows how If it is not addressed at the right time and with right approach, it could lead kids to wrong doors for answers.
I will highly recommend this movie to everyone not only for Marathi audience but also to non Marathi speaking people. One thing for sure this movie will make many of us nostalgic. All of us gone through this phase and we have a story tell, secret to hide. So BP will take you back to those days.
Movie has amazing content, good story, god screenplay. Movie is funny but it is not a mad comedy. It never sidetracks from the core message the movie wants to convey. Ravi Jadhav proves ones again he is one of the best directors in India. I can’t wait to see his next movie. As for actors, they all gave amazing performance. Not only seasoned actor like Kishor Kadam but even all the young actors did brilliant job. Movie was also a good visual experience, thanks to good work by Mahesh Limaye. Music by Vishal-Shekhar was refreshing. It distinctly sound different from the music we here in Marathi movies. I don’t know what part Ritesh Deshmukh played in making this movie but it was good start for him in Marathi Film industry.
If I have to rate this movie, I will give it 10 out of 10.

Mumbai Pune Mumbai

 Movie Review “Mumbai Pune Mumbai” (2010)

Genre: Romantic Comedy
Director: Satish Rajwade
Language: Marathi
Story, Screenplay: Parag Kulkarni, Satish Rajwade
Dialogues: Parag Kulkarni
Star Cast: Swapnil Joshi, Mukta Barve
Banner: Mirah Entertainments Pvt. Ltd.

We had seen endless number of comedy movies in Marathi. But not many of them will feature in romantic comedy genre. “Mumbai Pune Mumbai” is one romantic comedy everyone must see. It is nothing but good movie watching experience. The argument between Mumbaikar and Punekar are age old. Both try to better each other. We read about it in many novels many TV shows and movie. Yet it is as fresh as a blooming flower every day. We never get tired of it. We will get the same hilarious argument in this movie too between a young Mumbai girl and Puna boy.

A young modern girl played by Mukta Barve, travels alone from Mumbai to Pune just to meet her probable husband selected by her mother. While looking for address, she asks one local boy played by Swapnil Joshi, exact location of the house. These are two protagonist of the movie and these are only two characters in the movie. When the girl reaches her destination she finds the house locked. So she decides to leave and call the probable husband later saying she is not interested. On the way she meets the local Puna boy again and decides to roam around Pune for the remaining day. So during the day when they are together we find the different lifestyles of two neighboring cities. But this arguments and counter arguments somehow bring them together. So will they carry forward it into any relationship? What will happen to the probable husband? We will fund it out in a climax of the movie.

There is not a dull moment in 100 minutes movie. So Director Satish Rajwade must be commended for this. He did excellent job. As for acting Swapnil Joshi was absolutely brilliant. He was in top form. Mukta Barve did great but her accent could have been better for Mumbai born modern girl’s character, which Swapnil adapted perfectly. Technically movie had no flaws. Movie is good visual treat, great work by cinematographer. Movie is a different experiment in Marathi Cinema and was successful one. I will say it set the standard for any other romantic movie.

If I have to rate this movie I will give it 9 out of 10.
