To say that it is a film about lavanis would be wrong because it is more of a love story with elements of a family drama.

When Indrajit goes to a fading lavani dancer's place to learn the folk art, he falls in love with one of the dancers.

At a time when item songs and party numbers are ruling the roost, many folk arts are biting the dust. Among these is the lavani which has seen a drastic downfall in terms of its acceptance as a folk form. Interestingly, lavanis are a common feature in Marathi films but 'Bugadi Maazi Sandali Ga' (BMSG) goes a step further to concentrate completely on the dance-music form.

It is the story of Indrajit who returns to his native Kolhapur after competing his education in music from the US. On reaching he asks his friends to take him to a lavani show as he wants to get acquainted with the art form. What he sees is something shocking for him and while in search of lavani groups that have stayed loyal to the traditional form, he comes across Chandraprabha Sanglikar's students. He falls in love with Shubhangi (Manasi Moghe) and following a whirlwind romance, decides to marry her. Problems arise when his family comes to know about Shubhangi's background. But that is the least of Indrajit's problems because Raosaheb Shinde (Mohan Joshi), the owner of the mansion that Chandraprabha and her students live and practice in, starts making advances towards Shubhangi.

To start with, it is a brave step by Manasi (Miss Diva Universe 2013) to make her acting debut with a Marathi film considering many beauty pageant winner prefer Bollywood over regional cinema to start their careers. Secondly, the director and producer have to be appreciated for choosing a subject like this one. Making people aware of the traditional art form is a good thing but unfortunately the end result is not all that exciting.

The plot doesn't have a solid base and veers in various directions as the film proceeds. To say that it is a film about lavanis would be wrong because it is more of a love story with elements of a family drama. Lead actors Kashyap and Manasi show some spark but their performances are not very remarkable. Manasi is ravishing but uncomfortable in her dancing and dialogue delivery. Senior actors Bhatkar, Joshi and Bhate play their parts perfectly.

The songs are nice and some parts of the movie are good. Other than that it's a film that turns out to be just average.
