A sensible filmmaker resorts to making sleazy flicks for money but ends up regaining his lost glory when his latest venture creates waves.

Review: For those of you who've seen Milind Kavde's 'Yedyanchi Jatra', traces of the narrative can be found in 'Shinma'. The former dealt with the problem of defecating in the open while the latter revolves around the water crisis in the rural pockets of the state.

K Vasu (Deo) is an award-winning filmmaker on the lookout for a producer and actress for his next venture. Unfortunately for Vasu, the award hasn't fetched much in terms of money, which forces him to direct B-grade sleazy movies. The reason: he has to support himself and his ailing wife. Post much deliberation, Deo and his sidekick Pankaj (Patkar) get Sachha Ganda (Karyekar) on board as a producer. As soon as they reach the shoot location, which happens to be a dusty village named Dhoolpati, they encounter the problem of water-shortage. Though Deo has promised Ganda a Marathi remake of Sholay, he has a bigger plan in mind.

This is the second movie this week, after 'Mahanayak Vasant Tu', that has water-crisis/ drought as a principle element in it. It comes at the right time too as many parts of the state are struggling with water scarcity. An interesting thing about 'Shinma' is that it tackles the subject in a humorous way. There are emotional moments but by large, the film makes you laugh; a pitiful laugh at the state of affairs. It brings to the fore many issues that plague villages and in doing so, it excels.

The drawback is that, at times, it goes overboard. There are some scenes that could've done away with and others that could've been crisper. Ajinkya Deo does what's expected of him, Vijay Patkar cracks you up with his one-liners and Karyekar goes overboard (something that he's been doing far too often nowadays). The rest of the cast have their moments but by large it's Deo and Patkar's film.

With some fine tuning, the film could've been a wholesome treat to watch but it only goes so far as being good in parts.
