The year has now come to an end and when you look back at all the Marathi movies that have released this year, you immediately smile. This year was good, at least for Marathi cinema. A big reason was the evolution of the content. Now, the directors and scriptwriters are moving away from the traditional ways of making movies and are open to experiment with new and interesting ideas. And when you bring on board some talented actors to portray some unique roles, you get a completely satisfying cinematic experience. So, to remember all the awesome time we had at the theatres this year, we bring you this list of top five Marathi movies of 2016 that we feel have made a permanent place in our hearts.
A story of two street kids that made us appreciate little things in life. This wouldn't have been possible without the heartwarming performance by the little stars, Shubham More and Vinayak Potdar. They definitely have the potential to make it big in the industry.
Every family has problems. How you deal with your family members during difficult situations shows how mentally and emotionally strong you are. In Astu, Dr. Mohan Agashe and Iravati Harshe try to portray that through their on-screen father-daughter relationship.
Nowadays, it becomes very difficult to keep in touch with all your relatives. Most of you only see them during certain occasions. There are only a few relatives who stand by you during a difficult situation. And in Ventilator, you get to see all such emotions. Also, kudos to Priyanka Chopra for producing this movie.
Natsamrat was originally a hit play, which was adapted into a movie by Mahesh Manjrekar. Nana Patekar’s portrayal of Appa, the retired stage artist, is so convincing in this movie that it would make you experience the deepest of your emotions. Don’t be surprised if you start tearing up while watching this movie.
Saved the best for last…
Sairat was this year’s record-breaking movie. Nagraj Manjule, took a simple story and transformed it into an experience that every person will thoroughly enjoy. And due to his realistic portrayal of this doomed love story, Marathi cinema hit a new milestone and got a lot of love and recognition from the entire country.
As you all can see, the competition was tough, but it would be absolutely unfair if we do not mention Reti, Vazandar, and Lalbaugchi Rani, as they too were entertaining and carried a valuable message.
