A wealthy goon harbours a wish to act in a film and goes out of his way to help two filmmakers who promise him a role.
A few decades ago, Dada Kondke introduced the Marathi cinema-goers to double entendre and made a fortune out of films that were laced with the same. R Viraj's 'Vaajlaach Pahije' tries to bring the genre back but falls hard on its face. The truth is that despite the crass jokes in them, Kondke's films had a satirical quality that made them connect with the viewers but this film is just filled with top-notch crassness and nothing else.
The story, if it can be called that, revolves around wannabe director Makarand aka Yash (Bhosale) and actor Raj (Udgirkar), who are in search of a producer to fund their film. With no contacts in the industry, they approach local goon and wannabe actor Bhau Damdar (Bhau Kadam) as a last resort. Bhau is a desperate man and all that he wants to do is get intimate with pretty-looking ladies, a prime reason behind his desire to get into films. With Bhau on board, Raj goes heroine-hunting and comes back with Supriya for the role opposite Bhau. Turns out, Supriya is Yash's sister. Whether the 'team' gets fed up of Bhau's desperate tactics or do they complete the film? Well, if you watch the film you'll know and if you don't you'll be among those lucky ones who didn't waste a couple of hours of their lives on watching this ridiculousness.
Almost everything in this film is forced and unnecessary including the double-meaning jokes, the songs, the 'acting' and more. The film is so crass that it can give a tough competition to other films from the same genre. It is surprising that the film passed the censors and that too with a U/A certificate.
The film aims not just to entertain but put forth the idea that struggle is written in everyone's destiny. Interestingly, the struggle is dealt with only towards the end of the film which makes one question the whole point of making a film; more so when it is nothing but a loosely strung chain of events.
If you are to judge Marathi cinema by taking 'Vaajlaach Paahije' as the lowest standard, any film with the slightest hint of sense and story would emerge at the top with flying colours. Yes, the film makes you laugh but the joke is on the makers for having managed to put crassness on a pedestal that no other film would be able to reach in the near future.
