Movies(Best Releases) of The Week 7th March 2014/Johnson Thomas
Dhag(Marathi)Rating:*  *  * ½ Dhag scored Best Director for Shivaji Lotan Patil, Best Actress for Usha Jadhav and a Special Jury mention for performance by a child actor, Hansraj Jagtap, at the last National Awards and it’s clear why.  The stunningly nuanced interplay of a low-caste boy’s struggle to shed his demeaning heritage comes alive with powerful emphasis because of the above-mentioned director and actors’ immersive involvement. A not to be missed film!  
 
August: Osage County(English)Rating: *  *  * ½  We saw a similar story happen in Mrinal Sen’s ‘Ek Din Achanak.’ But this film is based on the darkly humorous Pulitzer and Tony-winning play by Tracy Letts and directed by John Wells, this unexaggerated film version mostly captures the stormy interplay between family members essayed with corrosive aplomb by a top-notch ensemble of actors.
