If the first look teaser is anything to go by, this adventure-laced action film promises to be an intense, captivating experience for movie-goers. Baji is directed by Nikhil Mahajan, maker of the critically acclaimed Pune-52, thus raising our expectations from the film. Actress Amruta Khanvilkar will be seen in the lead role opposite Shreyas, while popular actor Jitendra Joshi will play the nemesis in the film. With a star cast like this, it wouldn’t be surprising if the film turns out to be a success. We really hope it does!
The film also marks the Marathi debut of singer Chinmayi Sripada, who has crooned to the single ‘Majha Baji‘. Chinmayi has been a playback singer for Bollywood as well as South Indian movies in the past. ‘Aala Aala Re Baji‘ – the title track by Adarsh Shinde and Shalmali Kholgade, and ‘Masoli‘ by Bela Shende are some of the other songs that were out prior to the film’s release. On the whole, the music album is a mix of traditional and modern music, thanks to Atif Afzal’s music score and Shrirang Godbole’s lyrics.
The Marathi film industry seems to have taken a plunge forward as far as meaningful cinema is concerned. Baji claims to be Marathi cinema’s first superhero movie and it will be interesting to observe how the audience welcomes it. We can’t wait to watch Shreyas in his all-new avatar!
