A directorial debut of “Om Raut”, with a motion picture, holding a concept on a phenomena “Bal Gangadhar Tilak”, Indian nationalist and social reformer, was quite of a gamble, I say. A narration of a biographical film, put in place, to convey the substantial significance of the person, to the nation, was a tentative play. But keeping the chance taken aside, Marathi cinema has proven, to conceive fictional or factual stories, in such a way, that the hearer-ship are left with a wide open mouth, exiting the theatre.
And so did “Om Raut”, Indian writer, director & producer. With cinema like “Lokmanya Tilak-Ek Yug Purush” and City of Gold (2010 film) and Haunted – 3D, there is no case of dis-belief, that this 34 year old skilled house of talent, is a gallant owner of “Marathi Filmfare Award”, 2016 for “Lokmanya Tilak-Ek Yug Purush”, leaving everybody unsurprised. The film was praised by audience as well as critics. Times of India” pinned 4 stars to the film annexing “Very rarely does a Marathi film get a standing ovation from the audience and Lokmanya: Ek Yug Purush, is one of them”. Possessing abilities of status of elevation likewise “Om Raut”, no sign of uncertainty, is to look for. Citygossiper.com applauds the arduous skillful stallion, of a long run high-lighting his endeavor to elevate the already uplifted Marathi Film Fraternity, with concepts like these, in faith to view cinema of splendid degree in terms of script. Kudos!
