On a poster you see a tagline ‘”Vay Vicharu Naka” (Don’t ask the age) which gives you a very much idea about the film Madhuri. And that’s the USP of the film because this subject is connectable to almost all audiences of different age groups between 20 to 50. It may not hit the high level bar but surely manages cross the Decent line and entertain you with it’s humorous narration. Feelings are evolved through a talk on generation gap problems, that’s something to watch in the film.
“Madhuri” is a Story of Madhuri (Sonali Kulkarni), who is A Strict College Professor and a Disciplined mother who became a patient of Retrograde Amnesia and the result of that she loses her memory to revisit her teenage days. Now obviously this incident bothers her Daughter Kavya (Sanhita Joshi) as she is also of same age, so it’s quite humiliating for her. To get over it how she tackles with the problems, how she gets to see herself in the form her Mother and how she gets to know the past in been seen in the film. All this emotional juggernaut comes to an end with a solution to our Daily Life’s issues. Sonali Kulkarni shines as Madhuri with her bindass attitude & sizzling looks. The new face Sanhita Joshi delivers a Power packed performance in her debut film & had left a strong impact. Akshay Kelkar and Sharad Kelkar brings the necessary humour with their acts. Musically this film is on high level as Avadhoot Gupte doesn’t fail to give couple of Good Songs. Almost every song is impressive and situationally pleasing. Screenplay is slightly below the belt, so does the dialogues. Direction viz Swapna Waghmare Joshi doesn’t fail either as always delivered an impactful movie.
Overall, “Madhuri” is a Film to make you feel younger and go free in your own passionate way. Little more strong characterisation and tighter grip would have made it a bit more interesting. It is still a decent film and definitely a one time watch for plenty of reasons.
