Marathi film Kaccha Limbu is taking the critics by storm with its unusually oath breaking subject. The plot revolves around a mentally challenged boy and the situation after he turns adult. Marathi actor Prasad Oak’s directorial debut is based on a popular novel called Runanubandha. The film has Sonali Kulkarni, Ravi Jadhav, Manmeet Pem in the lead and their performances are being hailed by the critics. The trailer of the movie also got rave response and it won’t be a surprise if the film soon starts receiving accolades. The critics have talked at length about the movie and here we brought to you some of the honest reviews. Some scenes lean towards the grotesque without needing to, and Oak stretches the story for much longer than it is worth. The heart of the movie is the bond between Mohan and Shaila, which is movingly and powerfully depicted by Kulkarni and Jadhav. Kulkarni is especially effective as the harried wife trying to hold on to her feminine side, and Khedekar is good too as the boss who alters the contours of the couple’s relationship with one another.

Pune Mirror: Kaccha Limbu ends on a positive note, slightly different from the play, but this is the right approach. To an extent, reflects the change in societal attitudes towards mental disabilities, which has only recently taken place. At the same time, it uplifts the viewer and offers the right context for the dark film. We will soon update you with more details of the film, till then stay tuned to
