Plot: The film is a compilation of three stories related to different people, and has the postman as the common thread linking them.

Review: We hardly write letters nowadays but there was a time when postcards were the only means of communication. The story of this film is based on the same idea and it takes a look at how dependant the lives of people used to be on letters.

As a part of his job, a postman (Girish Kulkarni) meets many new people daily and hands out letters to them. One day his wife Jaya (Sai Tamhankar) asks him to read a letter. Upon reading it the postman gets acquainted with the problems faced by a wood cutter named Bhikaji Kale (Dilip Prabhavalkar). The old man needs money to repay a debt and until then cannot stop working. As a sympathetic gesture, Jaya gives the money she has saved to the old man but that's not enough. A similar thing happens in the next story when the postman delivers the news of the death of a lady named Lisa Kamble's (Vibhawari Deshpande) father to her. The third story revolves around a courtesan named Gulzar who is waiting for her lover's letter in order to go and stay with him. After much wait she gets a letter but does she get her freedom?

Gajjendra Ahirey's direction is stellar without a doubt, and he is a master storyteller. Each of the three stories makes the viewer question what they would have done if a similar situation had arisen in their lives. Moreover, it is the actors' performances that make this film a gem. Dilip evokes a feeling of pity towards him with his portrayal of the frail and helpless wood-cutter. Lisa's angst and Gulzar's longing to see her lover are aptly expressed through Vibhawari and Radhika's respective characters. And amidst all this is Girish's postman who goes out of his way to make things right but gets shouted at in return.

The film has its moments of confusion but the splendid presentation of human emotions and reactions makes you forget those. This one's definitely a one-time watch for its sheer beauty.
