In today's day and age, divorce cases have been rampant in several strata of society and through the latest Marathi film Anurag, the director Dr. Ambarish Darak has presented the psychology and approach of a husband and wife, besides adding the beauty of picturesque Leh. While watching this film, we are reminded of Basu Bhattacharya’s old Hindi film, Avishkar. Only difference is that the old film belonged to the '70s era and the situation of that period, while Anurag has today’s touch and the issues present today.
Vrushabh (Dharmendra Gohil) and his wife Saumya (Mrunmayee Deshpande), who have completed 10 years of their married life are touring Leh together. They had last visited Leh immediately after their marriage. But, on their landing at the airport, the director gives a look into the body language of the couple implying that clearly there are differences between the two, with a cold war going on. Vrushabh is constantly talking on the phone about his work at the airport, as well as in the hotel. While Saumya seems to have got lost in the beauty of the nature at Leh. She doesn’t find the company of Vrushabh there too. Since the two got married, he was hardly involved with her even though she was his choice and he had already rejected a girl to marry her.
As the film progresses, we notice the desire within Saumya to become a mother, though the girl adopted by the couple is being looked after at a welfare centre. Saumya does take interest in this girl and the welfare centre, yet, she feels lonely at many times. Therefore, she suggests a separation to Vrushabh. Living together in this style is not a happily married life, she feels. So, the ball is in Vrushabh’s court to take his decision.
We also notice that the couple have limited communication and this certainly goes on to show that there is a more serious issue at hand than just a lover's spat.
The misunderstanding between the husband and wife is the biggest issue of the current period. The film has very sincerely made an attempt to present the same. The director has cleverly used the dialogues between the two as the best form of communication. Both Mrunamyee Deshpande and Dharmendra Gohil have portrayed their respective roles by getting themselves totally involved into their characters. Mrunmayee in particular is more impressive.
In this film, the music and background music have been very well used. Guru Thakur’s lyrics have found suitable music by Sameer Mhatre. Cinematographer Suresh Deshmane has captured the beautiful nature in such a way that he has created it as one of the characters of this film.
All in all, this film offers intellectual entertainment to sensible viewers. In short, Anurag is a film of different genre.
