Everything you need to know about ‘Tujhya Vin Mar Javaan’ directed by Murli Nallapa, is pretty much in the title. Subtly titled in half-Marathi and half-Punjabi, the film is a love story between Aniket (Vikas Patil) a Maharashtrian boy and Nisha (Prarthana Behere) a Punjabi girl.
Both their families have lived in Maharashtra since their birth and know each other very well. Due to some misunderstanding though, Nisha’s family leaves Maharashtra to move to Chandigarh. Nisha however stays back with her uncle and gets to know Aniket in her college.
It is a bit unfortunate that the only clever bit of improvisation the film shows is in the title. In this love story too, we notice all the predictable hurdles, which eventually lead to a conventional happy ending. The film does not experiment with, deviate from or change the conventions of your trademark Bollywood love story.
Music director Avadhoot Gupte though, has instilled the desired flavor into this love story with a mix of Punjabi and Marathi elements. Vikas Patil portrays the 'lover boy' image in this film very efficiently. Prarthana Behere also puts in a good performance as the lead. Among others, good support also comes from Pratiksha Lonkar, Atul Parchure, and others. Atul in particular, has skillfully played the part of Aniket’s uncle to near perfection. A major plus point is also the wonderful cinematography, which brings out the picturesque beauty of the city of Chandigarh.
Marathi viewers are generally always open to good love stories which have something exciting to offer. This love story though is something we’ve seen before, all too often. Don’t expect the unexpected when you watch this one.
