Story: Sat Na Gat is about a lady Naami, who hails from a small village. Her life sees some horrific changes after she is raped, as while the crime itself heinous, what is torturous is when the wheels of justice don't move.

Review: The film's first frame shows an idyllic village setting where people are going about their daily chores and there's the usual village banter and camaraderie. Suddenly, all this vanishes when a dead body is found floating in a river. The family that lives closest to the river is that of Naami's (Paakhi Hegde), a woman who's much sought after in the village because of her beauty. She's a hardworking mother of two kids and the wife of a good-for-nothing husband.

As the cops keep visiting the area for an enquiry, it's the cop called Dinesh Asole (Mahesh Manjrekar), who has the hots for her. One night he takes to the police station on the pretest of an inquiry and rapes her. A reporter of a local paper, Uttam (Bharat Jadhao) comes to know of this and reports this incident to his editor Shinde (Sayaji Shinde). While the reporter wants justice for the lady, the editor wants more circulation and the police and local politicians are desperate to cover it up since the village is the Chief Minister's constituency.

In the ensuing conniving and wheeling dealing between the politicians, cops and the press - will Naami get justice? Or will her rape be used by those with vested interests for their personal benefit?

The film asks many questions through Naami, which are very relevant in today's times. A reference is made to Nirbhaya as well.

At the beginning of the film the year 1992 is shown and you wonder why. At the end you realise that the year may have changed, but justice to rape survivors has remained an illusion. Bharat Jadhav, Sayaji Shinde and Mahesh Manjrekar have come together and they really live it up. Pakhi Hegde, in her debut Marathi film has done a good job of portraying the anger and helplessness of a rape survivor.
