Plot: The film is based on a real story about a young student and his relation with a eunuch who grows close to him over time.

Review: For an actress to put on 12 kilos and play the role of eunuch is a great risk and yet a commendable one, especially when the film is her second Marathi film after a gap of almost ten years. But Narayani Shastri took the risk and perhaps it will pay off as well.

Many have thought of 'Runh' as a love story between a young student and a eunuch and to some extent there is love, but just one-sided. The film draws from a real incident and revolves around Sanjay (Govardhan), his life and the changes it undergoes. The shy and innocent Sanjay comes to the big city to complete his education on a scholarship. Unable to afford the cost of renting an apartment or paying the hostel fees, he agrees to stay in his classmate's hostel room and in turn do all their chores. Soon, his classmate kicks him out in a fit of anger and Sanjay is homeless again. Then he meets Chander (Vijay Patkar) who offers to share his room with Sanjay. Turns out, Chander is a sly rascal who sells drugs as well. In a police raid he puts the blame on Sanjay but Rani (Shastri) saves him from going to jail. Sanjay and Rani develop a special bond but something happens that changes the course of both their lives forever.

The film has a cast filled with great actors. Manoj Joshi is convincing as Kajal Mai and the late Viany Apte as a policeman. For those who follow Marathi experimental theatre, Omkar is a known name and just like his plays, he gets under the skin of the character in this film. His is an appreciable performance and so is Narayani's. She looks and essays the role of a eunuch (a rare occasion when a woman is doing so) perfectly.

For the story and performances, this film deserves to be watched.
