Every film maker has his own style of presenting a love story. So when new Marathi film ‘Urfi’ was released, it first gave an impression of a typical love story, with one-sided love from the tapori hero Devaa , played by Prathamesh Parab. But as the film progressed, we were surprised to find Amruta, the only daughter from a well-to-do family, responding to his love. In the company of Devaa, who is a small-time real estate agent, she forgets her past. Their friendship grows further when Devaa, being a trusty person helping Amruta’s family, travels to Nashik for the Kumbh Mela along with them. Over there, both confess their love for each other. However, at this place Amruta meets her previous love, who is prepared to patch up. At this stage, the film takes a sudden turn. In the post interval session, you find a complete shift in the story, with some interesting events, concluding with an unexpected climax.
Director Vikram Pradhan, who has previous been at the helm of two Bollywood films, has written the story and screenplay of this film. He has used his skills well, to bring a complete change in the screenplay in the post-interval session. In fact, post the break, the film has a look of any gripping Bollywood film. Music by Chinar Mahesh also plays an important role in the film, with two songs picturised very well on the choreography of Umesh Jadhav. DOP Pradeep Khanvilkar has captured the Kumbh Mela scenes very well, including a song. In the role of Devaa, Prathamesh is at his best. But, the girl who invites all the attention is Mitali Mayekar, who has made her debut in Marathi films through this film. Though she has limited scope, she had a good platform to display her beauty and talent. In the supporting role, Upendra Limaye does well as a Police officer in his new look, while Kavita Lad Medhekar, Milind Pathak provide good support.
In the pre-interval stage, the film almost goes along the lines of ‘Time Pass’ with good humour created through some scenes. But with a sudden twist in the screenplay, it makes this film an interesting watch. Few scenes in the climax are not very convincing, but going by the overall effort put in by the director and good performances by the artistes, this film is definitely worth the time and money.
