Hello reader! Do you remember the first time you fell in love?
My guess is that someone just crossed your mind. Yeah well, no matter how it turned out to be, initially it was all cake and flowers. The feeling is just magical; it doesn’t matter how many times you fall in love again but when you felt ‘love’ for the very first time, that moment is still there with you, you know the excitement and giddiness you felt when you were around the person you love. I know, you also did some stupid things around them because you just can’t think straight. Well, now if I succeeded in reminding you of them, let’s move forward to what you’re about to witness in this film which is all about love and will let you relive the joyful feeling.
Sairat is a movie which can easily be described in just three words… Parshya loves Archie. Sairat is a Marathi language Indian blockbuster. This movie is a musical romantic drama highlighting the teenage-love and the consequences it felt due to caste discrimination in our society. It is a story of a dream coming true and then transforming itself into a nightmare. It has been released originally in Marathi language and was seen in all parts of the Indian sub-continent with English subtitles. This film is one of the best creations of Marathi film industry. The film was released on 29th April, 2016. Moving on to the plot of this romantic tragedy…
STORYLINE OF SAIRAT
This is anything but a typical love fairytale of boy meeting girl, they fell in love and lived happily ever after. The movie is set in a small Indian village of Solapur district in Maharashtra and the place is telling us the story of two young lovers named Prashant Kale aka ‘Parshya’ who is a poor son of a fisherman and Archana Patil aka ‘Archie’ who belongs to the upper-class society; she is the daughter of a local politician. When these two fall in love which is the most beautiful feeling in the entire world, it turns out to be extremely vicious to both of them and those who are in contact with them.
But before their love starts becoming an evil to their families and the minacious society, we get to spend a little bit over an hour with them who are falling fast and hard in love. Indian movies are known for their long run times and this story is also one of them which is separated by two halves. The first half witnesses their remarkable love with all the slow-motion scenes; college campus turning into a place of shy glances and smiles; letters getting exchanged between the two; both of them moving dreamily across the fields where Archie’s dupatta is flying behind her and on the other hand Parshya is jumping happily here and there feeling the rush of first love. Their love holds the power to stay with you forever and will keep you gripping till the very end.
However, the second half of the movie will make them victims of the caste discrimination. They are in a constant struggle for their lives. The story turns out to be very dark in this half. All the cute feelings vanish after the first hour. All hell breaks loose when their family finds out about them. As Archie comes from an upper caste family, her family is very protective of its image and they are portrayed overly menacing. The evil happenings will feel very real. The movie is challenging the caste system of our society in India strongly and effectively. The first half may let you believe that this is a non-realistic fairytale. The theme of love will let you believe that the movie is drifting in a romanticized direction but, mark my words it is far away from it. The second half tells the ground reality. The survival of day-to-day life and the faith of their love getting disturbed somewhere will make you scream to them… “Just hold on, everything will be alright!” But will they have their happily ever after?
THE MUST MENTIONING CAST & CREW OF SAIRAT
The movie is written and directed by Nagraj Manjule, who dared to write the impossible tale of love, challenging the discrimination by caste which he closely experienced. The dialogues of the movie are written by his brother Bharat Manjule. Nagraj Manjule chose his own village named Jeur for the film. Writer-director Manjule said that the film is about “the challenges of an inter-caste romance, but in a mainstream format.” The movie is produced by Nittin Keni and Nikhil Sane. The credits for cinematography go to the very talented Sudhakar Reddy Yakkanti.
Speaking of the casting of Sairat…
Nagraj Manjule literally chose two names for the lead characters which didn’t even have any acting background. Rinku Rajguru playing the character of Archana Patil was just 14 years of age when she was introduced to Manjule and was selected by him for the lead role after watching her dance and dialogue delivery. Akash Thosar aka Prashant Kale met with Bharat Manjule at a railway station and showed him his pictures; he was a twenty-year-old college going student who later on got selected for lead role after several auditions.
Tanaji Galgunde as Pradeep Bansode and Arbaz Shaikh as Salim Shaikh were also the very important supporting actors in the film.
ACHIEVEMENTS AND OTHER DETAILS
Sairat was remade in several languages: Dhadak (2018) in Hindi, Noor Jahaan (2018) in Bengali, Manasu Mallige (2017) in Kannada, Laila O Laila (2017) in Odia and Channa Mereya (2017) in Punjabi. Although in my opinion none of them could reach the level of satisfaction which Sairat gave to the audience. The film had a low budget of just INR 4 crore but made a huge amount of money estimated to be INR 110 crore. Sairat received standing ovation and special mention at 63rd National Film Awards. Best Film, Best Director (Manjule), Best Actress (Rinku Rajguru) and Best Music Album are some of the awards out of 11 which were received by Sairat at 2017 Filmfare Marathi Awards. The two young actors Rajguru and Thosar were also recognized for Best Debut female and male.
KEY INGRIDIENT: OUTSTANDING SOUNDTRACK
The infamous Ajay-Atul duo delivered the amazing songs and background score of Sairat. All the songs are in the first half of the film creating the magical aura of love. The songs are a perfect blend of Western orchestra and Indian classical instruments. The four-song album features vocals by the prolific talents of Indian musical industry, Ajay Gogavale, Shreya Ghoshal and Chinmayi. The lyrics are contributed by Ajay-Atul and Nagraj Manjule.
The four tracks are:
- “Yad Lagla”
- “Aatach Baya Ka Baavarla”
- “Sairat Zaala Ji”
