It has been over one week since when I watched Marathi movie Sairat but I still can’t get over it. I am being haunted by the movie all the time. Make no mistake the movie is not a horror or ghost related movie but an intense love story, which can impact the psychology and physiology of viewers over a prolonged period of time. Even a horror movie won’t impact you that way.
The songs are too melodious to cause any fatigue to your hearing sense. The mesmerising music by ace musicians Ajay-Atul will take you to the ‘Beta State’. My personal favourite track is ‘Yad Lagla’. I don’t even know the Marathi language but I enjoy the song ever since without getting tired. The soul-stirring lyrics, the out of the world music perfectly blends with the slow-motion movement of the actors, especially the lead actor.
The ‘Zingat’ song has become a party favourite but the title song and ‘Aatach Baya Ka Baavarla’ are also very good. I just came to know that the songs have been recorded in Symphony Orchestra at Los Angles. It is no surprise though. The music and lyrics are very infectious
While the ending of the movie is a heart breaker but it is the contagious romance between the lead actors that will leave a lasting imprint on your mind. Honestly, the actors are very average looking. When I saw them for the first time on the screen I was like, “WTF! The Director did not get better faces?” After I watched the movie the actors especially, the lead actress Archie aka Rinku Rajguru completely won over me. The actress driving a tractor has remain etched in my memory.
The film scenes are very raw and most of the actors including the lead pair are firs timers. They acted very naturally. A viewer can easily relate to them and the natural setups. It is impossible to find a realistic movie like Sairat in Indian cinema.
I’m a middle aged man but I never had looked back at my past till date. But the Sairat made me miss my teenage life badly and forced me to revisit my school and college days. Now, I feel like a complete loser!
