A wada in Mumbai is quickly transformed into a palace of sorts by its residents everyday at 6 p.m., - the time when the soul of freedom fighter Shrimant Damodar Pant, enters that of his grandson's. Will this soul be finally freed of its burden?
When Bharat Jadhav and Vijay Chavan come together in a Kedar Shinde film, laughter is guaranteed - simply because the two actors are so high on talent and both are brilliant in this film. But, does the film hold its ground or is it riding on the comic talent of its lead stars? Thankfully, it does hold its own!
The story is simple. Freedom fighters Shrimant Damodar Pant (Bharat Jadhav) and Lakhoba (Sunil Barve) have knowledge about a certain map that will be the key to the wealth of India. While Damodar manages to get this map out of the clutches of the British, Lakhoba wants it for his personal gain. In the fight that ensues, the map is torn, each gets a half and Lakhoba dies.
Cut to the present and Damodar's wada is a hustling with activity. The place is rented out to various families by Damodar's son Ganpat (Vijay Chavan) and they all live like one big, happy family. And binding them together in this bond is the soul of Shrimant Damodar Pant. This 'aatma' enters Ganpat's son Damu's (Bharat Jadhav) every evening at 6 and the whole wada is made to resemble a rich palace. Residents dress like people of yesteryears, the naive Damu becomes the strict and strong Damodar Pant and this activity goes on for years on end.
When will this play act end and how? Will the lost map save the wada from this daily haunting? It is this journey that Kedar Shinde has kept funny. While dialogues are sharp, their superb delivery adds the extra punch. The entire cast adds their own special quirks to this fare. And yes, Sonu Nigam's Matching Navara song sure revs up the proceedings. Go watch it to laugh and have a stress free time.
