Mauli: Film Review – Ekdum Masaledar!

Verdict: Vithoba and Riteish are the two heroes of Mauli.

The 2014 film Lai Bhaari, directed by Nishikant Kamat, won a lot of love from the audiences. The masala action and story was thoroughly entertaining and the film’s follow-up Mauli is no less. Mauli stars Riteish Deshmukh, Jitendra Joshi and Saiyami Kher and the project has been directed by Aditya Sarpotdar.

What’s Mauli About:

Inspector Mauli Sarjerao Deshmukh (Riteish Deshmukh) is posted in a town that is a working ground for a gangster Nana Londhe (Jitendra Joshi). Nana takes his “gangster” tag seriously as he makes moonshine, is a land grabber, has monopoly on water tankers as well, and basically terrorizes the villagers. With the authorities under Nana’s thumb, the villagers are scared of him and are reduced to merely spectating this criminal charade. Initially, even Mauli is forced into playing into Nana’s hands but then a secret is discovered that promises to change this dynamic. The rest of the film is all about how Mauli lays down traps to nab Nana.

What Works:

The film starts off with a visually stunning vaari and the mood is set. You’ll anticipate some masala action with killer dialogues to go with them and you’ll not be disappointed. Director Aditya Sarpotdar’s intentions are clear right from the beginning. Every scene and all the dialogues have been designed to be thoroughly entertaining and whistle worthy. Ajay-Atul are at the top of their game as their powerful background score complements the well-choreographed slo-mo action sequences. The song Majhi Pandharichi Maay will give you goosebumps and is used effectively throughout the film. Mauli calls on Vithoba for help and He doesn’t disappoint. Mauli’s faith in Vitthal is so sweet and endearing. While a lot of masala can be too much at times, Riteish’s charming screen presence and fantastic performance don’t let that happen. Jitendra Joshi of the Sacred Games fame is a formidable opponent and  Siddharth Jadhav is his own talented self. Saiyami Kher plays her role decently well.

What Could’ve Been Better:

The film’s story may be something that has been told before but this one has stunning visuals and super dialogues that make it stand apart. Mauli delivers what it has set out to do – be a full-on entertainer.

Why You Should Watch:

If you’ve watched and liked Lai Bhaari, you should book for this blindly. For others, Mauli is an absolutely massy masala entertainer served Marathi style. Riteish Deshmukh is terrific as is Jitendra Joshi. The humor is on point, the action scenes are fun, and the dialogues are lai bhaari! Mauli makes for a great weekend plan.
