When Abhay's cousin tricks him and gets the family property on his name, Abhay promises to avenge this. Things don't go as per his wish though.
After a long wait the Marathi film industry gets an out and out masala movie in its kitty. Somewhat on the lines of a Rohit Shetty action thriller, 'Lai Bhaari' is your perfect family entertainer with a dose of action, comedy and drama. Moreover, with Salman Khan and baiko Genelia's special appearances, Riteish Deshmukh had pulled off the Bollywood masala formula intelligently.
Pratap Singh Nimbalkar (Uday Tikekar) and Sumitra Devi (Tanvi Azmi) is a highly respected couple in a village. The couple is unhappy because after nine years of marriage they are still childless. On her maid's insistence, Sumitra prays to Lord Vitthoba to bless her with a child and promises to give her first-born to him as an offering. When she tells Pratap about the promise, in a fit of anger, he leaves for London. He comes back after Sumitra assures him that she is not going to give away their new-born boy.
Abhay (Riteish Deshmukh), their son, studies and grows up abroad, and upon coming back he starts handling their company's affairs. On the other hand Abhay's cousin Sangram (Sharad Kelkar) and his father Jai Singh (Pratap's brother) are busy plotting the downfall of Pratap's empire. When Abhay and Pratap take it upon themselves to expose the duo, Sharad and Jai Singh do something that results in a great loss for the Nimbalkar family.
Spoiler alert for those who haven't watched the film. With no other option, Sumitra goes to Pandharpur. Enter Mauli, the Vitthoba devotee and a rugged version of Abhay, who helps her get back what she has lost. Why? Because a buried truth unfolds in front of him.
Riteish's Marathi acting debut is simply astounding. Coming after the appreciation for his performance in 'Ek Villain', it definitely seals the arrival of Riteish-the actor. He dances, he emotes and he fights with equal ease. Sharad Kelkar plays the brooding and ruthless villain with aplomb. Finally, here is a Marathi villain who will induce anger and make you cringe with his actions. Radhika Apte and Aditi Pohankar lend the glam quotient and while Aditi's acting is average, her role comes as a surprise. Radhika makes the most of her role as Kavita and her song sequence with Sharad is worth appreciating. Tanvi Azmi and Sanjay Khapre too do their parts with finesse.
Much like its name, the film's action is
