A biopic of ex-Maharashtra Chief Minister Vasantrao Naik.
Adding another name to the list of biopics/ films inspired by political leaders' lives is 'Mahanayak Vasant Tu', inspired by the life of Vasantrao Naik.
It traces the journey of a young Vasant, belonging to a tribal community, from his cultivating years at Nagpur's Morris college to becoming the longest serving CM of Maharashtra. Naik is considered to be the father of the green revolution in the state and was influenced by Mahatma Phule and Mahatma Gandhi. As a young man, Naik read law and decided to enter politics for the betterment of the society. His popularity amongst the masses subsequently resulted in his rise in politics.
One might call it an honest attempt but there are far too many flaws when it comes to minute details and execution. For starters, a certain motorcycle model was never existent in the pre-independence era. This is one of the few things that could've been looked into.
As far as acting goes, Chinmay does justice to his role and so do Jayraj Nair and Bharat Ganeshpure. There's the usual opposition to the good candidate and dirty politics that unfold. The brewing romance and song could've been done away with.
While the film has a story that brings forth the struggle of the leader, it falters in pace and execution and this ultimately hampers the film as a whole.
