Plot: Set on the backdrop of revolutionary movements during the pre-independence era, this film presents the story of a kid and his grandfather's struggle to stay safe.

Review: Borrowing its name from a popular game, 'Vitti Dandu' stays true to the spirit of a game; that of driving the Britishers out of the country. The story unfolds through the eyes of a grandfather (Ravindra), who narrates it to his grandson Rohan.

At a time when modern games have taken over the attention of the younger generation, this film brings alive the age old vitti-dandu . Along with it is the setting of the pre-independence period which only makes the film more interesting.

In the remote village of Morgaon, somewhere in coastal Maharashtra, Govind (Nishant) and his grandfather Daji (Prabhavalkar) lead interesting lives. Govind is a master at playing vitti dandu and does a lot of mischief along with his group of friends. On the other hand, Daji is perhaps the only person who feels that the arrival of the British in India is a boon for the country. He stays strong on his stand even when everyone in the village is busy planning a revolt. As the plot unfolds, the real story behind Daji's support of the firangs comes out. Turns out, he has lost his son and daughter-in-law to a revolt and doesn't want the same to happen to Govind. When Govind accidentally hits a British officer while playing, Daji takes the blame on himself and this is where the film turns around.

At a time when many filmmakers are busy making mushy love stories or playing it safe with typical plots, director Ganesh Kadam brings out a daring film about bravery. In doing so he brings out the best from his actors as well.

Nishant is very convincing in his role and so is Prabhavalkar who it seems is experimenting as much with his choice of roles as he can. Yatin Karyekar and Ashok Samarth are brilliant in supporting roles and so is Mrunal Thakur who has improved a lot since her last outing.

Though not an edge of the seat thriller, this one is surely a one-time watch for all.
