Marathi film review
Johnson Thomas

Stunningly Evocative


Film: Tapaal
Cast: Nandu Madhav, Veena Jamkar, Milind Gunaji, Urmila Kanetkar and introducing Rohit Utekar,
 Director: Laxman Utekar


Rating: * * * ½
 
‘Tapaal’ is cinematpgrapher(English Vinglish) Laxman Utekar’s directorial debut and it’s a spell-binding one I must say. The film has already been feted and appreciated in several International film festivals and showings and it comes to the theatres in India riding on that Tsunami of appreciation.
The  story of a little boy, Ranga Rao(Rohit Utekar)who gets informally adopted by a childless couple  and the social discrimination/ostracisation faced by them in their small village. The film is set in a small village, somewhere in the Konkan region, in the year 1977. It dwells with sympathy, concern and understanding on the bond between the little boy and the childless couple, and the social discrimination that they face.
 
TAPAAL's script writer, creative producer and presenter is none other than Mangesh Hadawale, of TINGYA fame. He creates some very tangible moments strong on pathos and enlivenment.
The performances by all the actors are stunningly evocative- and especially so with young first-timer Rohit Utekar who manages to stun you with his naturalness and amazing confidence.
Laxman Utekar, in his very first directorial effort proves that he has what it takes to go the distance as a director of repute!
 

 TAPAAL had its World Premiere at 18th Busan International Film Festival 2013, South Korea. It was selected in Indian Panorama Section at 44th IFFI (International Film festival 2013) and 9 other International Film Festivals as well. It was also screened at 3rd Eye Asian Film Festival and Pune Film Festival. That's not all. Veena Jamkar bagged the best actress award at South Africa Film Festival. While Rohit Utekar won Best Child Actor Award, Prakash Holkar got the best lyricist award for his emotional composition 'don disanchi sawali ' at the Maharashtra state film Awards.
