National award winning senior actor Dilip Prabhavalkar has been entertaining us for over 3 decades now! He has played varied roles in all kinds of films. But a comedy has always been his strongest point. ‘Zhalla Bobhata’ appears one such sharp social comedy.
Though overall the trailer appears slapstick, beneath it hints that this film deals with something important. The film is written by the ‘Chala Hava Yeu Dya’ fame writer Arvind Jagtap. ‘Kon Ahe Re Tikde’ was a sharp comedy previously written by Jagtap. So we are predicting ‘Zhalla Bobhata’ to be the surprise hit essential for Marathi cinema.
Alongside Dilip Prabhavalkar the film stars Bhau Kadam, Sanjay Khapre, Kamlesh Sawant, Teja Devkar, Mayuresh Pem & Monalisa Bagal. At the end of the trailer we see Kamlesh Sawant’s character waiting desperately for Dilip Prabhavalkar to reveal someone’s name! Whose name is it? & what’s it got to do with the plot of the film? Such questions arise in our mind which is great sign for a satirical comedy.
Director Anup Ashok Jagdale has an interesting backstory of being a touring talkies owner. His life’s story inspired a Hindi film titled ‘Road, Movie’ which starred Abhay Deol in Anup’s character. So this transition from a touring talkies owner to a film director is definitely admirable!
