Though Marathi films and their class actors of yesterday like Nilu Phule, Shriram Lagoo, Vikram Gokhale, Sachin, Ashok Saraf were good, somewhere, probably due to lack of support of Govt. or audience, good Marathi movies could not reach the level of national and international recognition. However, now with new generation movie makers and with equal support form yesteryear actors, Marathi movies have certainly reached the class of Malayalam, Bengali and Kannada movies where the filmmakers explore all sorts of subjects for movies and even the top most actors are eager to be part of such movies without seeing remuneration. And above all the audiences of these regions are intelligent and sensible that they equally appreciate good craft and make it successful. So happy and proud for Marathi film industry. Just hope the audience appreciates such good movies and make it a hit. Moreover, Maharashtra Govt. should also support and help the film makers by giving the movies larger screens as well reduce ticket prices so that more and more people are able to see good movies.
Yes it is an excellent film.thanks and kudos to rediff and Raja Sen for reviewing this national award winning film.It should be watched by non maharashtrians also as it has english sub titles.Simple but very effective film.
Maharashtrian film makers are finally coming of age and it is a welcome break from the 80s and 90s era of slapstick trash in the name of cinema. Well done, makers of 'Killa'! BTW, the name of the main protagonist is Archit Deodhar and not Davadhar!
