When Cupid strikes the very first time it sees no class or caste barrier. And though the path to reunite with a loved one seems arduous and almost impossible, it's this love which makes a person do good things. Love doesn't remain a Time Pass anymore.
Teenage love and its many-layered emotions range from purity in thought to a brevity that's endearing. While its depth never ceases to amaze you, its craziness warms your heart. And the love story of paper-boy Dagdu (Prathamesh Parab) and college-going Prajakta (Ketaki Mategaonkar) is one that's has all these emotions.
As you watch the movie unfold, as cynical adults you read the impossible nature of it all right away. But when you see the innocence of young love unfold on screen in a fun manner (watch the library scene for this), director Ravi Jadhav forces the adults to do a rethink on love, even as he compels the young ones to see reason in love, but without being preachy at all! What begins as a Time Pass for these youngsters can actually prove to be transforming and life changing.
, M-town can now boast of another teen film that is making the right noises. While most of the dialogues are catchy and humourous, everyone in the cast from Dagdu's friends, to Prajakta's parents to the lead actors - all have put in perfect acts.
Prathamesh is a natural and while the most part of the film sees him in a rowdy mode, watch him excel in the
garib hai toh jya
... scene and the last scene where he gets emotional.
Ketaki as the simple teen too has done well to show how she's affected by the
Vaibhav Mangle as her strict dad is also terrific. Urmila Kanetkar makes a brief but warm appearance.
All in all,
is worth a watch and kudos to Ravi Jadhav for taking a risk with relatively less known and young stars as his protagonists. Hearing at the
and laughter in the theatre, it sure looks like it has paid off big time!
