Before you start having misconceptions about a film titled Bhikari, we’ll clear it for you. The title is a reference to a popular adage in Marathi that goes ‘Swami tinhi jagacha, aai vina bhikari’ which roughly translates to ‘the one who has everything but a mother, is still a beggar’.

This pretty much sums up the gist of the film’s story, only here, the adage has been taken in the literal sense. After Samrat (Joshi) takes over the business from his mother Sharada (Adarkar), an unfortunate accident ends up putting Sharada in a coma. Despite best treatments, her situation doesn’t improve. A spiritual guru asks Samrat to trust the almighty and advises him to give up everything and beg for alms. So, Samrat embarks on a path of self-realisation, but not without having to encounter hurdles.

There are films that have the standard run-of-the-mill stuff and others that are totally hatke; Bhikari falls somewhere in between. It has the right mix of star power and masala along with an emotionally touching story about a mother and her son. The execution is where this film falters. In a bid to make the film entertaining, Acharya puts more than you can digest on your plate. As a simple story- a son going to extremes to help his mother recover- Bhikari could’ve worked wonders, but when you put in a love interest, multiple songs and a sub-plot about a power-tussle within the family, things start getting out of hand. Ultimately, you don’t do justice to either of these things and end up with a patchy execution.

Having said that, it is also worth mentioning that the film doesn’t make big promises about being hard-hitting and you actually get a decent dose of entertainment. Swwapnil Joshi has taken efforts to look and play the part and he is convincing. The rest of the cast, including the beautiful debutante Rucha Inamdar, sail through without having to do much.

All in all, Bhikari is a treat for Swwapnil’s fans and for those who don’t want to watch another love story this week.
