Listening to his grandmother's bedtime stories is Kaustubh's favourite
But what if those tales eventually start affecting and interfering in his day-to-day life?
With the blind faith in god as its underlying premise, the film delves into the psyche of a god-fearing family and their dilemma when their son goes through a difficult patch in his life.
It all starts with young Kaustubh's grandmother's bedtime stories about that revolve around the Hindu mythological tales about Lord Ram and Krishna. Kaustubh is fascinated by these and especially loves the tales of Vishnu's avatars. When his grandmom tells him that Vishnu's tenth avatar is supposed to be born in the Kalyug, Kaustubh starts thinking that he is the Kalki avatar. Fuelling this hallucination is his dear friend Mangya who believes Kaustubh and starts calling him Deva (God). Following some coincidences that further reinforce the belief in Kaustbh's mind, he breaks his leg one day and the bubble bursts. Amod, a tenant in Kaustubh's house, understands the problem troubling Kaustubh who has by now started experiencing anger fits. Amod then uses his wit and logic to bring Kaustubh out of the problem.
In a film written and directed by the National Award winning 'Dhag''s writer Nitin Dixit, it is the kids Mihiresh and Yash who score brownie points. Their simple yet sincere acting is the gem of the film. Leena Bhagwat and Sunil Abhyankar make complete use of their short roles. Adinath time and again surprises the audience with his choice of roles and it is heartening to see him not shying away from doing a supporting role. A surprise addition in the cast is actor Ashish Vidyarthi who is seen in a cameo.
WATCH: Promo of 'Avatarachi Goshta':
There are glimpses of 'Dhag' in the film but the storyline keeps it from becoming a repeat telecast of the National Award winning film. Apart from a loose subplot which has Kaustubh's elder sister falling for Adinath, the film is pretty good. It does falter in the speed of unfolding but is a good watch that closes the year on a high note.
