Bioscope: Film Review – A brilliant, mind-numbing mixture of emotions!

Marathi cinema has grown by leaps and bounds, and Bioscope seems to have raised the bar even further. Four acclaimed directors come together with four touching stories based on the works of four poets. The film explores the various human emotions in the most touching way. Each story has been beautifully laid out by their respective directors, giving out a subtle yet important message towards the end.
The film starts with the 1st story titled Dil-e-Nadaan (Based on Mirza Galib’s poem), directed by Gajendra Ahire. Neena Kulkarni stars as a popular, but aging classical singer, along with Mianji (Suhas Palshikar), her companion. The story portrays the sad state of our yesteryear singers in today’s generation. How they live the rest of their lives in hope and despair has been effectively portrayed by Ahire. Kulkarni does a fabulous job as ‘Bai’.

The second story, titled Ek Hota Kau, talks about how love transcends boundaries. It’s the story of Swapnil (Kushal Badrike), who cannot confess his love to the girl of his dreams, because of his dark complexion. Director Viju Mane has done a wonderful job in showing the dark side of reality that we tend to ignore too often. Spruha Joshi spells magic with her bubbly character. Mane conveys a serious messagethrough this story – True love isn’t about color, race, etc., it’s about feelings.
Director Girish Mohite brings in the third story in the film. Titled Bail, the story throws light on the sorry state of farmers in our country. One such farmer is Mangesh Desai, the protagonist, whose helpless situation brings him to Mumbai, but back in his village, things are going against him. This ultimately leads to a tragic end. Through this story, the director has given us a glimpse of the devastating truth that is usually overlooked by the people of our country.

Last but not the least, director Ravi Jadhav brings in the fourth and final story of the film, called Mitraa. Jadhav takes us back in time, as early as 1945, which forms the background of the story. It is commendable how Jadhav has taken a concept like homosexuality back to the pre-independence era. At a time when the entire country is fighting for freedom, here’s a girl (Veena Jamkar) who wants to fight for her own sexual freedom. What makes Jadhav’s story stand out from the rest is its black-and-white appearance. The story’s message is loud and clear. Even after 67 years of independence, humans are still fighting for freedom.
Why should you watch the film?
Bioscope is one of the finest pieces of Marathi cinema. It’s a must-watch for pure cinema lovers.
