Ashdoc's movie review---Tee sadhya kaay kartey ( What does she do now ? )

This marathi movie has a name that intrigues the mind---'What does she do now ?'. Obviously it is calculated to remind us of all the old flames we loved and liked in school and college days , but whom we never got to romance because we were too young to so that . And asks us to try to bring those old flames into our minds again , by forcing us to wonder and find out what they are doing right now .

One wonders what a romantically mysterious movie it would have been if it was made in the eighties or nineties , before social media made it easy to contact old friends again . The sheer difficulty of searching for the one loved and lost would have made the cinematic journey exciting . Today in the age of facebook and whatsapp the photos and happenings in the life of old acquaintances are available to us at a click of a mouse .

But nostalgia is nostalgia , isn't it ? At a reunion of old friends Anurag comes to know of his old flame having returned to India for a short break from her residence in a foreign country , and his mind is filled with memories of the old times he spent with her while they were growing up in the same neighbourhood together . She was his close friend , confidante , and also his first love---but love was something that neither of them could confess to each other at that age , and that was the catch....

But it is not just about love , but about the times they spent as friends---he finding excuses to take her scooter to take rides with his various girlfriends in the city , she stealing her father's alcohol because he wanted to have his first drink , his father having a heart attack and she helping out like a family member in the hospital till she tired out and slept with her head on his shoulders , she scolding him for his various misdemeanours in school and college , them fighting and then making up....

But the last fight is when the relation crumbles , with she shifting to another city and later to a foreign land . But now she is back , albeit for a short while . So does the hero manage to meet her again ? And what does he want to say ? And what is her reaction ? Now that both have their own households , what is the point in reconnecting again ? To find out the answers , it may be necessary to watch the movie .

The movie makes a fine emotional bonding with the audience , with the characters on the point of tears on several occasions in the movie . And the songs are appropriately nostalgic , evoking tears of nostalgia . Reunions become not just meetings with old friends , but rewinding of old happenings and mistakes . And some of those mistakes could have been life changing , like not having expressed feelings to the right person at the right time . So is it possible to turn the clock back , and recant for some of the lapses in judgement done in the past ?

The movie has decent acting throughout , from the hero played by son of yesteryears star Laxmikant Berde to the heroine played by Arya Ambekar . Music and songs are likeable if you like them to be nostalgic , and photography is okay . It is not a regular love story , and is worth watching if you like something different .

Verdict---Good .

Three stars .

Re: Ashdoc's movie review---Tee sadhya kaay kartey ( What does she do now ? )

pardon me, the story sounds like it will last only about 5 min. is it only flashbacks, does anything actually happen in present times in the movie?
