“Avatarachi Goshta” is a story of a small village guys Kaustubh (Mihiresh Joshi) and his best friend Mangya (Yash Kulkarni).

He starts to figure out which avatar is he? In this process, he tells his best friend Mangya that he is an avatar. Mangya who is superstitious, believes in Kaustubh’s story and starts calling him ‘Deva’ (God). On the other hand, Amod (Adinath Kothare) who stays as a paying guest in Kaustubh’s house is an atheist. Thus, when Kaustubh shares his little secret with Amod, he makes fun of him. Later, due to few co-incidences like when Kaustubh commands tv it gets starts but actually his grand-mother switch on the tv from remote control, Kaustubh and Mangya starts thinking that Kaustubh had gained super-powers like God and he is the tenth avatar of Lord Vishnu which is Lord Kalki. However one day, to overcome his fear and to become a total avatar (As he thinks that by overcoming his fears he’ll become an avatar) he jumps from the valley by which he fractures his legs.
In the second half, Kaustubh gets disturbs when he learns the fact that he is not an avatar. To know what happens later, you need to visit your nearby theatres to watch the movie, as the director Nitin Dixit has brilliantly plotted the storyline of the movie.
The movie is well narrated and direction is also pretty awesome. Cinematographer Nagraj Diwakar has also done a fantastic job. The promotional song of the movie ‘Dokyacha Zhalay Bhaza’ composed by Rohit-Sridhar is a total bang on. On the other hand, all the star cast has gave fabulous performances.
