Releasing just a day after Dahi Handi, the film scores full points for being topical. Further, its subject is in sync with the debate over the height of the human pyramid, which was restricted to 20 feet by the Supreme Court. That's why the film is bound to strike a chord with viewers.
In true Avadhoot Gupte style, our protagonists Malhar (Tatwawdi) and Raghu (Mahajani) make a rocking entry onscreen. Raghu's Jai Ekta mandal has the record of making a 9-tier pyramid and despite having the potential, Malhar's Jai Bajrang mandal can't break the record due to a court ruling. This, until the local politician (Oak) lends his support. With his backing, preparations for a 9-tier handi begin in Malhar's camp. This poses a challenge for Raghu's camp, which is backed by a goon (Karmarkar). Breaking rules, Malhar's group equals the record but Kahna, a kid, suffers injuries in the process. Is Kanha's a fall an accident or was his safety sabotaged?
Much of the first half goes into introducing the main characters of the film. An hour into it, you know what each person likes, dislikes and is afraid of. Throughout the film, each and every action is spelt out. This stretches the film unnecessarily. The film picks pace after the interval and is a decent experience from there on.
Vaibbhav and Gashmeer are a treat to watch. They look, emote, react and dance like true stars and help the film sail through. Gauri features in the film just to fill in the actress' slot and has nothing substantial to do. Kiran as the local goon is spot on.
Gupte treads a familiar path in this one. Kanha has some traits of the director's directorial debut Zenda. The film is high on details about the festival and is worth a shot.
