5) Salaam

Salaam Marathi Movie Poster

  • Director : Kiran Yadnyopavit
  • Cast : Vivek Chabukswar, Abhishek Bharate, Girish Kulkarni, Kishore Kadam

Director Kiran Yadnyopavit continues his good form after Taryanche Bait. Like the 2011 film, Salaam too succeeds in presenting a human bond that moves you no ends. The film is a good example of using the visual medium to not only tell the story but also present various twists. In short, the title is apt for it.

4) Fandry

Fandry Marathi Movie Poster

  • Director : Nagraj Manjule
  • Cast : Somnath Avghade, Suraj Pawar, Kishore Kadam, Rajshree Kharat

It is amazing how in his very first feature film, director Nagraj Manjule has shown such artistic brilliance while narrating such a simple tale. But this is not the only big achievement of Fandry. You just can’t help but applaud how Manjule has also given a moral slap to the evil of casteism and also to those who follow it. The film is also helped by a terrific act by Somnath Avghade.

3) Dhag

Dhag (2014) Poster - Marathi Movie

  • Director : Shivaji Lotan Patil
  • Cast : Usha Jadhav, Upendra Limaye, Hansraj Jagtap, Nagesh Bhosale

The film can boast of presenting a disturbing tale of cremators without making it depressing whatsoever despite a tragic twist. The writing and direction make way for an intense and compelling storytelling with a very positive climax. Dhag has won three National Awards for Best Director, Best Actress (Usha Jadhav) and Best Child Actor (Hansraj Jagtap) and rightly so.

2) Ajoba

Ajoba Marathi Movie Poster

  • Director : Sujay Sunil Dahake
  • Cast : Urmila Matondkar, Hrishikesh Joshi, Shashank Shende, Dilip Prabhavalkar

Ajoba is an achievement not only for Marathi cinema but Indian cinema as a whole. The country has never seen a wildlife film based on a leopard before. The film produces a gripping and heart-wrenching effect as it talks about how the poor animal is forced to enter cities due to the hypocrisy of human beings. Apart from also being top-notch in technical aspects, Ajoba also has a truly dedicated act by Urmila Matondkar, who makes her Marathi film debut with this one.

1) YellowYellow Marathi Movie Poster

  • Director : Mahesh Limaye
  • Cast : Gauri Gadgil, Mrinal Kulkarni, Upendra Limaye, Hrishikesh Joshi

There are good films and there are great films but there are very few that can be labeled as a masterpiece. Mahesh Limaye’s Yellow is one such rare piece of cinema that is sure to impress people from all age groups, class or nationality. Despite the film being based on the life of a girl suffering from Down’s Syndrome, it doesn’t get depressing or even serious at any point. In fact, it is full of delightful moments. To achieve this in your very first film is indeed a great achievement. An incredible performance by Gauri Gadgil and some fine acts by Mrinal Kulkarni and Hrishikesh Joshi also play big parts in making the film what it is.
