It is a story of Gauri, a young girl suffering with Down Syndrome, who beats the odds and goes on to become a swimming champion.
The film talks about how feeling pitiful and terming someone who suffers from a disability 'special', is in fact a major discouragement for them and with the right amount of patience and support, they can create wonders.
Mugdha (Mrinal Kulkarni) and Shekhar (Manoj Joshi) are parents of Gauri (Gauri Gadgil), a 'special' child who lives life on her terms. While Mugdha wants to bring Gauri up normally, Shekhar is unsupportive of it. He feels disgusted of fathering a child who he has 'nothing to feel proud about' and even goes to the extent of letting her drown in a swimming pool. Shocked at Shekhar's behaviour, Mugdha decides to separate from him and takes Gauri along with her to her brother Shri's (Hrishikesh Joshi) house. As Shri and Gauri give a hard time to their neighbours with their antics, they also discover Gauri's love for water. Soon Mugdha enrolls her in a competitive swimming training batch under renowned coach Pratap Sardeshmukh (Upendra Limaye). From there on its an upward climb for Gauri as Pratap grooms her into becoming an excellent swimmer, much to everyone's delight.
There are films that put forth a strong social or humanitarian point through harsh reality and then there is
. Mahesh Limaye's debut directorial venture is nothing short of an intricately woven story, more specifically, Gauri's story of success and belief. To add to it, every actor featured, be it Mrinal as the protective mother, Hrishikesh as the chilled-out uncle or Upendra as the strict coach, ooze perfection in their roles. Brilliant cinematography and music make this Riteish Deshmukh production a must-watch.
Yes, it is a story of determination and will power but it is also the story of a beautiful mother-daughter relation and a coach's staunch support for his student. But most importantly, it is a story of transformation- the transformation of Gauri to Yellow.
