You must've heard of paying guests but what if a ghost knocks on your door and asks to be your guest?
Since the time this concept of a 'paying ghost' came to light, there was curiosity around the film and moreover there was one question in many minds- will a film with such an unusual concept work? With the film in theatres, director Sushrut Bhagwat has beautifully answered that question with a positive answer.
Let's make one thing clear, the ghost we are referring to is actually a ghost (well, eight of them to be precise). While many human paying guests end up being 'ghosts' causing trouble to the home owner, the ghosts in this film are a contrast to this idea. Madhav Mategaonkar (Umesh Kamat) stays is a chawl and is that nice person who cannot say no to any request. So when Gajanan Ekbote (Pushkar Shrotri), a ghost requests Madhav to allow him to stay at his house, Madhav is taken aback and shocked to find out that Gajanan is really a ghost but agrees to let him stay. We are not surprised when Gajanan asks Madhav if he can get his family along and the latter aggress, again. From then on, Madhav's life turns around, for the better as he tackles goons, arrogant neighbours and also succeeds in expressing his love to Madhavi (Spruha Joshi).
The concept scores brownie points and the story creates a solid foundation for the film. Though a fictional one, the narrative also makes references to social issues rampant in the society, from a ghost's perspective. Umesh and Spruha recreate their Eka Lagnachi Tisari Goshta magic with perfect chemistry. The supporting cast is equally stron with Pushkar delivering punches after punches in his inimitable style, Anita Date playing the heartbroken lover to the T and Atul making the most of his role as Madhav's office friend.
Apart from being filled with funny situations and dialogues, the film strikes an emotional connect as well. It leaves you asking for more and hopefully soon, there will be a sequel as has been made clear by the 'To be continued' line at the end. A surprise cameo from an established name in the film industry adds more spice and is sure to make the audience look forward to PG-2.
'PG' is a beautiful film with a balanced mix of comedy, romance, tragedy and emotions and is not a film to be missed if you are looking for some fun over the weekend.
