‘VAJVUYA BAND BAJA’ (Marathi) | 12 December, 2020

Amol Kagne Films’ Vajvuya Band Baja (Marathi; UA) is a comedy. It is the story of three brothers who are eager to get married. However, they end up getting caught up in a gamble on love, sex and marriage.

Sanjeev Tiwari’s story offers something new but it is not good enough. Nishant Dhapse’s screenplay also treads the tried and tested path and, therefore, does not entertain much. Dhapse’s dialogues are funny at places only.

Chinmay Udgirkar does well. Mangesh Desai is okay. Sameer Dharmadhikari performs ably. Pritam Kagne is so-so. Nagesh Bhosle lends fairly good support. Abhijeet Chavan, Kanchan Pagare, Ruchiraa Gormaray and Ashwini Khairnar are adequate.

Shivaji Lotan Patil’s direction does not create much of an impact. Music (Vijay Gatlewar and Rahul Mishra) is average. Mandar Cholkar’s lyrics are appropriate. Song picturisations (by Pradip Kalekar and Shardul Kumar) are routine. Nikhil Kamat’s background music is nothing to shout about. Nagraj Divakar’s camerawork is okay. Sets (Santosh Samudre) are alright. Nilesh Gavand’s editing could’ve been sharper.

On the whole, Vajvuya Band Baja is a flop fare.

Released on 11-12-’20 at Maxus Borivli (daily 1 show) of Bombay thru Pickle Entertainment. Publicity & opening: poor.
