A Bitter-Sweet Tale!
Vatsalya Gurukul is a school which runs on a very innovative thought, where students enjoying schooling and get the chance to explore their hobbies as a career. Berij Vajabaki’s central theme is a worn out tale about the behavioral pattern of parents and their unrealistic expectations from their children. The theme is woven around an inter-school competition that decides the best school award of the year. Amidst the competition, a greedy owner aided and abetted by the owner’s brother plan to acquire the land of Chaudhary Sir’s (Nandu Madhav) Vatsalya Gurukul to build a mall on it.
To save their school premises the kids have to play one game of treasure hunt where other participants are from high class school and taught that they had to win it as this is the prestigious issue for their school with some added pressure from the parents as well. While they participate in this treasure hunt, the students get to experience friendship, bonding, nature, happiness and togetherness what they actually want from their life. Interestingly, the parents are watching this and realize what they are offering to their children and also what they themselves are doing in their life? The film unfolds driving home a poignant message on the role of parents’ in the life of their wards.
While Raju Bhosale and Pratap Deshmukh’s screenplay is not at all convincing as it is repetitive and dull and sets out to preach, direction by Raju Bhosale fails to whip up your appetite as it lacks drama. The screenplay, written by Raju Bhosale and Pratap Deshmukh, is not at all convincing or interesting. Chandrashekar Iyer’s camerawork is good in parts
Among the actors, Nandu Madhav lives his role as Chaudhary Sir. While Mohan Joshi is good as usual and performs ably, Upendra Limaye is not able to make a mark with his patented role. Devika Daftardar as a single parent of a ward makes her presence felt. Pravin Tarde, Milind Gawali, Girish Pardeshi, Smita Shewale, Gayatri Deshmukh and Bhakti Chavan provide adequate support. Neel Bakshi, Ramesh Pardeshi, Jayesh Sanghvi, Amit Waze, Neeta Donde and the rest of the child stars are adequate.
On the whole, to sum up Berij Vajabaki is a bitter-sweet tale, which has an old world charm about it. Go for this adventure if you want to see good content
