In order to raise money for renovating his village's temple, a young lad participates in a singing contest.

Review: Avadhoot Gupte's first two outings had Mumbai at their backdrop. He then went far north to Bhatinda with his next and he returns to familiar territory with 'Ek Taraa'; both location and subject-wise.

The film starts in a small village near Alandi with a young Dnyaneshwar aka Mauli (Juvekar) gearing up to participate in a singing talent hunt. The latter part of the film unfolds in Mumbai. The subject being about a singer and his journey in the industry is something that only Gupte could've done justice to considering his association with music. Comparisons with Imtiaz Ali's 'Rockstar' were rife among the audience and 'Ek Taraa' does have a resemblance to the Ranbir Kapoor starrer but only in bits and pieces. Like 'Rockstar' it is based on your typical boy-next-door's journey to the top and his eventual fall from grace. But the premise is entirely different and so are many other elements associated with Mauli's journey which ranges from simpleton to contest winner to arrogant star to an addict to losing everything and coming back to square one.

Gupte's film boasts of a stellar cast, most of whom were eagerly awaiting the release of the film due to its long delay. Santosh Juvekar delivers an impressive performance and carves out a way for many more substantial roles to come. Ditto with Urmila whose transformation from the carefree village belle named Chatura to the suppressed and hurt wife is noteworthy. It is a delight to see Tejaswini Pandit, as the self-made Urjaa, doing something other than social issue oriented roles and she is fantastic with her character. Sagar Karande, Sunil Tawde and Amole Gupte do justice to their cameos too.

The films has its share of cons in it's length, forceful jokes and an uncomfortable sensuous song which divert it away from the subject. Barring these flaws the film is good to watch and can be put on your weekend watch list.
