The film revolves around the interpersonal relations of a rich business-family from Pune and their struggle to break out of the mould.
We live in changing times; times of conflicting existence and situations. While there is a strong urge among the younger generation to break out of the monotony of everyday life, they are caught between living up to their parents' expectations and pursuing their passions. Sachin Kundalkar's 'Rajwade and Sons' is about all this and more.
The film deals with a rich and somewhat dysfunctional family consisting of three generations of Rajwades. At the first glance one might identify 'Rajwade and Sons' with 'Dil Dhadakne Do' but a closer look brings out more things. With the family at the centre of affairs, 'Rajwade and Sons' speaks about suppressed passions, liberal views, parent-children relations, individuality and duality, rebellion and new beginnings.
It is essentially a conflict of thoughts between three generations; a patriarch who builds a business empire and wants all the members of his family to get into the business, his children, barring one, who see no choice but to follow his orders and their children, the youngest generation, that rebels against the established norms of the house (and society) which prevent them from doing things that they are passionate about.
Most of the cast members have a solid theatre background and their grasp of the situations is fantastic. Satish Alekar plays the grumpy and adamant patriarch while Jyoti Subhash his wife. Atul Kulkarni, Sachin Khedekar and Mrinal Kulkarni's portrayal of people caught between their father's orthodox ways and their kids' liberal thoughts is beautiful. But it is Alok Rajwade, Siddharth Menon, Krutika Deo and Mrinmayee Godbole who light up the screen with their perfect portrayals of logically-thinking youngsters. Even Amitriyaan's brief contribution as the rebellious second generation member is good.
'Rajwade and Sons' has ample twists and symbolism that identifies with the issues of today. Like Kundalkar's other movies, there's beauty, grace and huge aesthetic value to the film. It takes you on a tour of the evolving Pune but in doing so, it takes a lot of time (and brand placements) to make its point. In the end, the viewer is left with mixed feelings because while there are no particular flaws, the execution leaves one with a feeling of incompleteness. But this film is advisable to be watched by the complete family, together.
