Though Santosh Manjrekar’s movie was aimed for the Marathi manoos, the social message is relevant for everyone, irrespective of region. And though it may resemble Lage Raho Munnabhai, the matchless Marathi wit and humor, and dramatic story make Mi Shivaji Raje… stand on its own.

Dinkar Bhosale (Sachin Khedekar) has been looked down upon all his life and his problems seem endless-  a shrewd builder tries to get him ousted from his residence at any cost and deport the family to Badlapur, his daughter wants to legally change her “downmarket” name, his son cannot get into engineering college- and they all somehow connect to the fact that he is born a Marathi. Frustrated at the lack of respect and empathy he comes to these conclusions 1) being born a Marathi is like paying for past sins, 2) there’s no meaning in speaking the language or even speaking to fellow-Marathis, 3) all Marathis should marry non-Marathis or legally change their names.

Somewhere inside his fort Shivaji Raje hears this insolence and sets out to teach Bhosale a lesson.

Mi Shivaji Raje… is dramatised to the hilt. Shivaji’s entry into an urban setting, Bhosale fighting the baddies with a sword, etc. make you wonder if this is really a 21st century movie. Moreover Bhosale’s quest for justice appears more like a quest for common sense.  In short, the premise of the movie is more likely for a fourth-grader than mature adults. So why should this movie be watched? Simply because the message is not just for a wronged Marathi man, it is for everyone who turns a blind eye to corruption, and who doesn’t vote for better governance. Jaage Vha!

    Toooooo Good Movie!!! A must watch movie for every Maharashtrian…

  2. dr hemant sant

    FILM “”MEE SHIVAJIRAJE BHOSALE BOLTOYE.” ANGST OF THE SUBDUED INDIAN ANYWHERE I saw the marathi movie ”Me Shivaji Raje Boltoye–himmat asel tar adawa”=I am Shivaji Raje speaking -Stop me if you can”.
    I was thrilled by each dialogue written by team of Mahesh Manjrekar and well enacted within a tight gripping script depicting an angst within each Mumbai kar each mahrashtrian each INDIAN today.The rise of a subdued much insulted poor ‘Bhosale’ the central charachter ,into a true responder of situations and leader of men is shown guided by ”wisdom of the past” -SHIVAJI’s heroics -a la ‘Gandhi giri’ of different form.
    Then I was flummoxxed by this rise within me of a surge of ”regionalism ,hyper communalism or falsely inflated egotism of me being a marathi ” v/s pure utopian pan Indian nationalism which exists in many forms within ALL of us Indians of all hues and color.
    Am I as a marathi and my tribe being wrong somewhere by this clench fisting and beating the left side chest with a right club of the hand as we shout –”We are Proud to be a Marathi anywhere in the world- India but especially within ”OUR” MUmbai -maharashtra !!”??
    What are the factors which seemingly keep us marathis and all of us BEHIND and then suffer from such complexes and angst??
    I found out the following thoughts arose within me today as I continue to enjoy the rekindling of a spirit of being a Marathi Manoos.The feeling of pride inspiring some action was rising within me and my types..
    Should I sheepishly defend this in front of my pan Indian identity within my own larger Indian friends around me and in touch with me at many forums and sites.??

    1.Marathi manoos today is at the bottom of the pile atleast he /she feels like that within Mumbai where the only best and ‘ANY HOW GO UP TYPE ‘-go getters in each field would rise crushing all THE others not only a marathi!
    He/ she should learn WHICH DIRECTION TO TAKE,HOW ,WHEN AND where to ACT,rise and shine, which positions to occupy, to affect the future of the gen next, .
    How the educational facilties be open to merit not money -power and how local BMC/state officials at crucial places be helpful to truthful and be honest to the causes/ needs of the marathis and all Mumbaikars regardless.
    How the acts of defence-offence and wise guiles of Shivaji (and all past learned leaders saints) would help them fight the evil whatever its size and reach..’Learn all that is good from all and use it to go ahead..’

    The Film asks all the MAHARASHTRIANS OF ALL HUES, MOTHER TONGUE RELIGION TO Join hands now to drive all that is BAD within us and for us as Indians , that keeps THEM down and out AGAINST the RAW AND the SUBTLE USE OF POLITICAL AND MONEY POWER ..

    I think the film has a larger message to ALL THE INDIANS VICTIMS OF ..EITHER.. the dark unlawful corners of UP- BIHAR or casteiest and filmy individualistic politics of Tamil nadu or ‘RED’ blinded true intellectual BENGAL.or Kerala anywhere …(even in Pakistan…??)
    IT ASKS THEM TO LOOK WITHIN, JOIN HANDS-network!!- TO FIND A SOLUTION IN A UTOPIAN DREAM taking a step at a time ATLEAST FOR A BETTER TOMMORROW…for gen next..
    2.NOT all are at the bottom, so many Marathis are so confidently UP there mingling with the best India has to offer in each field.
    3.The angst within the masses which the FILM successfully exploits and makes it rise is that those within and at the top are not projecting themselves as men/women of marathi origin as they seem to be ‘ashamed’ of that fact! That is what successful marathis have projected to the masses .That those who are UP do not help those climbing from below to come up..believing in sense of fairplay where there is none!!
    The fact is many others always accuse marathis or any one from any state ..that ‘They’ would always be ‘them’ anywhere and start talking in the mother tongue wherever they meet!! what is wrong in that!!??
    5.MY observation about us marathis are that ,we are very independent and even if education or socio economic status may vary each one are very proud self esteemed people .They think that it is the ideas and non dependence on any other one even a marathi, that counts ! NOT the amount of money one has managed to accumulate.The literature and religious texts ,gems from the saints ,culture and food are things which can be enjoyed without having lots of money..” Veer Savarkar crooned to enter all marathi hearts from the shores of England ”..aai chi jhopdi pyari …”= ” a hut of my mother is blissful than living in a palace in the other lands”..
    6.Marathis feel that honesty and pride that goes with it,the integrity, is the greatest virtue,signified by SHIVAJI AND ALL past saints and some great men from the even immediate past GK GOKHALE ,TILAK,Agarkar.,Karve ,Ambedkar …so many more..Also TODAY signified by Dabbawalas of Mumbai who achieved pinnacle of perfection in the service they chose or had to ..or Mumbai Police men like Umbale ji and many before him who like a ordinary sentinels of as a just and lawful society would pay with EVEN their lives to safe gaurd the perpetual pillars of a nation and a society..

    NOT only ”Talk well ,NETWORK,PUSH PLOD or present themselves well” as many with a great fluid tongue manage to do at many forums.. BUT SHOW THOUGHTFUL RIGHT ACTION AT THE RIGHT TIME WITH DRAWING OWN SELF INTERESTS FOR THE SAKE OF THE SOCIETY AT LARGE …
    7.”MAHA –GREAT….RASHTRA = NATION” THE NAME OF THE STATE …ITSELF STANDS AMONGST ALL THE STATES OF INDIA DEFEATING REGIONALISM BY ITS VERY MEANING !! WHO CAN ACCUSE MARATHIS OF THAT ,WHEN ALL INDIANS OF ALL HUES HAVE MADE IT ITS SAFE HOME AND EVEN RULE IT RISING HIGH ABOVE MARATHIS IN MANY FIELDS!!
    8.Can you imagine ”outsiders” after decades of their stays Ruling them in any form like an dozens of MLA -MPs in UP Tamil nadu Bengal…any state !!?? show me a single example!!Mumbai OR Maharshtra has so many from other states who want the pie here but do not allow to get others the same at their ”HOME TOWNS”” !! That is what they call their places of origin ..still ask Amitabh or any one you meet next time..
    BUT the film in the end takes togather ..ALL from all over India and from all religions and differences togather ..IN THE REIGN OF SHIVAJI NO INJUSTICE WILL BE DONE FILM THUNDERS..BUT DADAGIRI OF ANY ONE COMMUNITY TO AFFECT LIFE AND STYLE CULTURE AND FUTURE OF MARATHIS DIRECTLY or safety of any indians WOULD NOW ONWARDS WILL NOT BE TOLERATED..IT SAYS..
    LOUDLY AS THE AUDIENCE EVEN IN BARODA GUJARAT CLAPPS ….AS THE FILM IS RELEASED SIMULTANEOUSLY IN ALL PLACES WHERE MARATHIS HAVE RULED IN THE PAST AND HAVE MUCH POPULATION..
    SEE THE FILM AS SOON AS YOU GET IT ANY HOW…AND RESPOND…

    Mi Shivaji Raje Bhosale Boltoy…a wonderful Marathi Movie should be watched by everyone in India. Such movies should boost Marahi film Industry. Message is very clear…Get Self esttem…Fight against every wrong thing….Don’t pitty on your own infact get self driven & make the things happen…Go and watch the movie..Its really worth watching. Well done Mahesh..MALA GARV AAHE MI MAHARASHTRIY ASLYACH.

    The movie was highly watchable. Bhosle’s plight was a familiar scenario. Like Bhosale we too reach the level where we wonder’ Where will it all end?”

    Maharaj ‘s entry was electrifying. So was the Powada. The lack of any romantic interest didn’t harm the movie at all. I was a bit disappointed by the end. Too long, too preachy, and badly shot.

    p.s. Manjarekar should have practiced horse riding a little better. His position looked most awkward, to put it mildly.

    ह्या फिल्मचे प्रोमो बघुनच मी प्रभावित झालो आहे, ज्याचे संवाद,केमेरा-टेकिंग, मार्केटिंग, प्रमोशन इतके सुंदर आणि भरिव आहे तर मग प्रेक्षक म्हणून हवा असलेला संहितेचा हि गाभा चांगला असेलच ह्याचि मला खात्रि आहे…लवकरात लवकर मी तरी बघणारच!

    I hope the message in movie will help some of the confused Marathi s (who are against non- marathi communities in Mumbai) to know what actually means by being Marathi…

    MUST WATCH FOR ALL AGE GROUPS…………

    Hats-off to Mahaesh Manjrekar, Sachin Khedekar & the Script. No one would imagine about the movie before enter into the theatre that how marvellous is the movie. Cracking act of Sachin, I had never seen this kind of acting as he perform. This movie is not only belongs to marathi society it is for the whole nation. It will assist to change the view of looking at any cast or religion. I will watch is movie once again. I proud to be Maharashtrian.

    Movie is really wonderful and should be watched by everyone.

    Message is clear that it’s time now for everyone to wake up and try to eliminate wrong activities especially corruption .

    While watching movie it was really felt that
    “Shivaji Maharaj Aaj Tumchi ya deshala kharach Garaj Aahe.”
