CAST & CREW
Debutant Director Girish Girija Joshi has come up with a social message in a humorous way. Internationally acclaimed at various international film festivals, the film has certainly attracted the movie goers.
The film is about the four kids Laddu ( Hardik Thakkar), Priya ( Ayesha Kaduskar), Ritesh (Ritvik Tyagi), Karan ( Meghan Jadhav), how they are curious about the beggar (Mithun Chakraborthy) near their building, about his strange look and the bag he carries. Due to his horrifying looks, the kids have named him ‘ Raavan’. Every time the kids manage to see what’s in his bag he manage to conceal it; this puts the kids in the more peculiar state.
They come up with an idea of building a tree house. They are helped by Ram ( Ashwin Chitale) a laborer from the neighboring construction site to build the tree house. After some catch-ups between the Raavan and kids, they create a friendly bond between themselves and the tree house becomes their daily friendly spot. Bakshi ( Gulshan Grover), the builder of the neighboring building, intends to banish the tree for constructing a road for his benefit. Will the kids and Raavan able to stop him? Who will win? Find out by watching the movie.
Girish has portrayed the ‘Save tree’ tag well at some level but fails to be a big screen entertainer. Comedy punches are delivered through some scenes, characters. As the message is one single, lacks to keep the pace of the movie.
Mithun da steals the show by his packed performance. All the kids have performed well. Gulshan Grover has carried his image well. Also Mahesh Manjrekar, playing Grovers assistant, has delivered some nice comic punches. Seema Biswas is not much used. Rimi Sen’s character is unnecessary in the film.
1. The social message, ‘Save Trees’.
2. Decent performances by actors
3. Entertaining visuals.
What’s not there?
1. The effective storyline for a film
3. The pace throughout the film
Zor Lagaa Ke Haiya is a one-time go. The film delivers a light-hearted entertainment. Lacks in the background score. The plot is weak considering a feature film. It has a nice message, though. You can watch with your family.
