It’s all about choices one makes and the passion in one’s heart. Stronger the passion and conviction, the stronger is an individual to stand up for one’s choices and live by them in the face of all adversities.

This is the gist of the new Marathi film “Natarang” starring Atul Kulkarni and others. Directed by debutant director Ravi Jadhav, Natarang is the story of a young farm laborer Guna Kagalkar, whose passion for the performing art pushes him beyond his family, village and all societal norms to realize his dream. Guna’s dream is to portray the role of a king- and we see him being referred to as ‘Raja’-Circumstances force him to assay the role of a ‘Nachya’ ( an effeminate character, aslo referred to as 'maushi') and this choice brings him up against several odds—yet having made his choice, he stands by it. Guna decides to take his destiny in his own hands, when the going gets tough on the farms, to set up a tamasha troupe.

The film has a simple, yet effective narrative. You cannot help empathizing with Guna.. Atul Kulkarni’s portrayal of Guna is effortless and simply remarkable. If he is a perfect ‘pehelwan’ complete with huge biceps( not six-pack though) and the rustic look, then he is equally comfortable as the nimble nachya. Full marks to him for that portrayal. He brings out the angst and trauma of the tortured nachya convincingly. Guna has a never-say-die attitude and that’s what makes him a winner, despite losing all he has while pursuing his dream.

The supporting cast (all the members of the tamasha troupe set up by Guna) do justice to their roles as does Kishore Kadam as the wily yet loving troupe manager Pandoba. Sonali Kulkarni ( the new one) as the tamasha dancer Nayana Kolapurkar, is impressive.

Mahesh Limaye’s camera, while capturing the picturesque country side, adds to the pathos of the troubled Guna when he is left with no choices at a certain point in his journey.

Music by Ajay-Atul is catchy; In the lavani “Wajle ki bara” Bela Shende surprises with her rendition. “Khel Maandila” is a touching composition which takes us through Guna’s journey.

Natarang is a winner, no doubt. A must see.
