Marathi Movie – Mann Pakharu Pakharu (2008)

Marathi Movie Video

Marathi Movie Video

  Kloud9 Tv & Entertainments
  Producers:   Ali Asgar, Probal Raha, Ashish Malshet
  Director:   Ankush Bhatt
  Music:   Jitendra Kulkarni
  Lyricst:   Raven Damne
  Cameraman:   Mangesh Sawant
  Art:   Ramakant
  Cast:   Sachin, Girija Oak, Subodh Bhave, Mohan Joshi, Prashant Damle, Jr. Mehmood…

We have seen many great movies based upon medical profession like ‘Anand’, ‘Munnabhai MBBS’ or even ‘Shwaas’ in Marathi. Despite the same base, every movie carried different aspect of medical profession and human relations. ‘Man Pakharu Pakharu’ is belongs to the same tradition, which discovers a beautiful relation between a doctor and a patient while dealing with problems of people facing neurological disorder.

The story starts at hospital, where Dr. Neelay Raje (Subodh Bhave) joins as new doctor. He is a sensitive guy, unlike other doctors his emotions are not died yet. He wants to discover his own path and wants to treat patients from his heart instead of brain. He finds his inspiration from Dr. Pandit (Prashant Damle) in same hospital. While treating the patients facing neurological disorder, he interacted with a young patient- Sarang (Sachin Pilagavkar). Sarang is like an alive dead body. He has lost all his senses. Neelay finds out extraordinary willpower of Sarang and gives all the efforts to bring him back in this world. Further story develops through amazing relations, emotions and dialogs between Sarang and Neelay. Different aspects of relations of a doctor and a patient, a mother and a son, doctor and hospital owner or even between two patients have been covered brilliantly in the movie.

The story provides quiet lot information about neurological disorder without breaking flow of story. Though it is a very static subject, Iravati Karnik- story and screen play writer has taken enough care to make it interesting. It is extremely good and successful attempt of Iravati- a new generation author to write such an informative but still entertaining story. All the time she had kept in mind that it’s a commercial movie, not a documentary and audiences admire her efforts a lot.

Movie has got really good star cast. ‘Subodh Bhave’, ‘Sachin Pilgavkar’, ‘Mohan Joshi’, ‘Prashant Damle’, ‘Ila Bhate’ and ‘Girija’. Names are enough to state the high class acting and it would be better experience to watch them on screen, instead of reading about their high-quality acting over here. Sachin has spent more than 4 decades in the industry but day by day his acting is getting more and more younger. He himself is a school of acting and we have seen many great renowned actors inspired by him.

All the feature of his role has been presented incredibly by Sachin. It is a challenge for any actor to perform a mentally handicapped patient, yet Sachin has presented it magnificently. He hardly cries in the movie, but his facial expressions, body language and dialog delivery literally make the audiences cry. A patient of neurological disorder, a young man, a good son and beyond all, an enthusiastic and kind hearted human being, all these aspect of Sarang’s character has charmingly shown by Sachin. He had actually got into the skins of Neelay. He had lived the character and I have no doubt in my mind that it is going to be milestone character in Marathi Film Industry. Subodh Bhave sounds good in role of Neelay. All the characteristics of Neelay like a shy doctor, emotional human being and helpless friend in the case of Sarang has played nicely by him. Prashant Damle, Ila Bhate and Mohan Joshi are as usual acted well. Girija hasn’t got much scope to show her skills.

Director Ankush Bhat had taken fine efforts to present such a beautiful story without losing depth of it. Thanks to Ankush, for not converting such a sensitive story into a mockery or ‘filmy.’ Music of Jitendra Kulkarni adds nice essence to the story. Especially, the symphony that he has used as theme music is really heart-touching.

Old is gold is true, but young talent is not at all less than good. When fresh talent like Iravati and experienced actor like Sachin works together, impact is much better than any other film. I think both of them have set an ideal example of a symphony of old and new. If others too follow them, audiences will definitely get the nice treat of gracious movies.

Song Lyrics of Savalee

Song: Nil Rangi Rangale
Singer: Devaki Pandit

ya ambaratlya neelpatavar shyam kanhyya nache
hya bhavani patachya raas layivar yek basuri vaje – 2

mazi sudha budha aani rit prita tu bhijuni chimba chimba re
nila range rangali re kanha nila range rangali
nila range rangali re kanha nila range rangali

madhur madhur ha sada tuza.. shirshiv hoi rani vani
hawa hawasa sprsha tiza dah dahlya tani mani
gaganat bramha aani git gandh me mastitarit
tav nila rang houni dang ashi dhundi sachendri
mazi sudha budha aani rit prita tu bhijuni chimba chimba re

nila range rangali re kanha nila range rangali – 2

khuli kiti hi prit ashi jannatu majala hesavarti
prit jagachi satha khari malaani tujala dujavarti
sahawas tuza kari dhyas asa ki me tuzich uraleli
mani shambhan hech yekach dhyanki me tuzich muraleli
mazi sudha budha aani rit prita tu bhijuni chimba chimba re

nila range rangali re kanha nila range rangali – 2

ya ambaratlya neelpatavar shyam kanhayya nache
hya bhavani patachya raas lalivar yek basuri vaje – 2

mazi sudh budh aani rit prit tu bhijuni chimba chimba re

nila range rangali re kanha nila range rangali
nila range rangali re kanha nila range rangali – 2
