Panghrun Movie Review : With sharp screenplay and strong storyline, Panghrun holds your attention from start to finish

Panghrun, which transports you to a different era, is an honest depiction of human desires. This period drama revolves around a young girl named Lakshmi (Gauri Ingawale), who has been living the life of a widow since the age of 14. She remarries Konkan’s respectable kirtankar Ananta aka Antu Guruji (Amol Bawdekar), who is twice her age. Struggling with his own dilemmas, he is trying to refrain himself from getting attracted towards his newbie wife, who in turn, is longing for intimacy.

To begin with, the film’s subject has been dealt with quite sensitively. There have been not many Marathi films in the past that talk about women’s sexual desires in such an unabashed manner. With sharp screenplay and strong storyline, the film holds your attention from start to finish. Thus, it is safe to say that Mahesh Manjrekar has once again displayed his cinematic excellence with this one.

Since the male protagonist is shown to be a kirtankar, the music is rightfully one of the strongest elements of the film. The songs are pretty situational, and play a vital role in taking ahead the story.

Gauri Ingawale is a fine actress. She has a complete command over her expressions, and delivers a powerful performance. Amol Bawdekar as a learned kirtankar, has done full justice to his part. Rohit Phalke, Surekha Talwalkar and Pravin Tarde lend strong support too.

The best is saved for the last as Panghrun packs a punch with a moving climax. You can definitely watch this one!
