Amidst border disputes, a Maharashtrian guy falls in love with a girl from Karnataka but opens a door to a past secret that might jeopardise their relationship.
If you start recollecting films based on a similar premise, Pune via Bihar and Tujhya Vin Mar Jaavan are the first ones that come to mind. In Bollywood, 2 States could be counted as an example. All these films show people from different states of India falling in love and the resultant problems. Even Carry On Maratha essentially is a love story of a Maharashtrian guy falling for a girl from Karnataka but it has a lot more than what meets the eye. In fact, the love angle is only introduced after a lot of brewing up.
Tough guy Martand (Mahajani) owns a dairy business and one day while on his way to deliver a consignment, he and his trusted young companion Bitya (Kumbhar) come across the standoffish Kusum (Kulkarni). They offer her a lift and on the way Martand and Kusum bond big time. Some days later Martand lands at her place and proposes to Kusum, much to the shock of her family that has vowed never to let a Maratha guy in their house. Things take a drastic turn when Martand comes to know of a secret from his past and hell breaks loose.
You can call it a combination of '2 States' and 'Hulchul' but Sanjay Londhe's directorial is a complete entertainer for the Marathi viewers. The film has all the elements that go into making a crowd-puller; romance, drama and action with a dash of comedy. It also has a colour scheme that reminds you of Chennai Express, songs that make you tap your feet and a lead pair that displays remarkable chemistry. A major drawback of the film is that the pace slackens towards the end and abrupt scene-changes leave you confused for a while.
The film marks the Marathi debut of yesteryear actor Ravindra Mahajani's son Gashmeer. Fortunately, Gashmeer is not just another star son. With good looks, a sculpted body, loads of style and good acting skills, Gashmeer is the perfect angry-young man. He dances well too. The film can also be Kashmira's big break. Her character of a Kannada girl is most likely based on Deepika Padukone's Meenamma Lochni but Kashmira adds her style to the role as well. At times, the Kannada-accented Marathi gets a lot to take though. Supporting actors have been wisely-selected with Arun Nalawade moving over the fatherly roles to play a cunning grey character and Kishori Ballal as the prime conspirator of a mean scheme. Even Devika Daftardar shines with her small yet meaningful contribution as Kusum's sister Nandini.
It is a mix of many things but Carry On Maratha is sure to make waves owing to its entertainment quotient.
