By Jyothi Venkatesh
Tejaswini (Mrunmayee Deshpande) is a dancer, who has been raised by her caring mother, Mai (Joshi), alone after her father’s death. Tejaswini feels compelled to help the nagging mother who has become eccentric over the years and now that Tejaswini has a boy friend and wants to leave the village, she finds herself unable to broach the subject at home. Teju’s dream of moving to Kolhapur to work in a dance school takes a back seat when her mother is diagnosed with a life-threatening disease. Tejaswini takes a final pilgrimage to a quaint village called Thampu that will bring her mother closer to death.
Rohit Kokate does nothing to elevate his character as a driver .While Suhas Joshi portrays her role effortlessly with natural ease, Mrunmayee stands out with her impeccable and layered performance by switching between being irritable and caring .It is the story of a strained relationship between a mother and daughter, and the journey that may bring them together or forever drive them apart. It seems like a good idea for a feature film, but gets lost in the presentation.
With soulful and lingering music by Siddharth Mahadevan and Soumil Shringapure, Bhogda is a road journey that foes horribly wrong with its length and at time lulls you to sleep with the indulgence of the debutante director.
To sum up, though Bhogda is an attempt at meaningful cinema with a difference, it merely ends up as a verbose and depressing movie
