Dhurandhar Bhatawdekar | 2015
A Marathi Film
The setup which uses a well equipped five-star colony for senior citizens as the main location, provides the much needed departure from regular drawing room and office related comedies. Also the set of main characters in the film have a different kind of relationship with each other. This is also a departure from the regular domestic relationships in Marathi Cinema. The possibilities presented by this very strikingly different set of relationships are plenty.
Dhurandhar and Bhatawdekar are diametrically opposite personalities made to live in a room as roommates in this facility administered by an attractive 55 year old Mrs. Damle. Three levels of romances are foreseen with various age groups. A juvenile love track of 20 somethings in the form of Mrs. Damle's daughter and her fiancé from college, a more regular middle aged romance of Dr. Patkar and the gym trainer Fiona Gonsalves and a very mature romantic triangle of the two central protagonists with Mrs. Damle.
This however transcends into a sort of a Tom and Jerry situation with Dhurandhar and Bhatawdekar pitted against each- other in a romantic battle to get the girl. The rest of the cast supports either one in this battle. The film deals with some pertinent issues of senior citizens as well albeit in a very funny manner.
Saptapadii | 2013
A Gujarati Film
Intense arguments erupt when Sid finds out that Swati’s involvement with the child can have disastrous consequences for his business and family life. He tries to explain this to Swati who refuses to see his point of view. Both separate on these arguments. Their daughter studying in USA makes her best effort to bring them together. Eventually, Swati’s determination makes Sid think about life and living for others, changing him from a businessman focused totally on his money, business and success, to a businessman sensitive and responsible to the society around him.
The story is inspired from real-life experiences of the film's female lead Swaroop Sampat. She has been working with disabled children in rural Gujarat (a western state of India) for many years. A former Miss India, model, theatre, TV and film actress, Swaroop got away from her glamourous life and went to Worcester UK, to do a P.H.D. in “training teachers in teaching dyslexic children via education through drama.” Now she works on a regular basis in tribal areas of Gujarat.
