Before I start, Allow me say you, I don't write reviews generally because I think it is time consuming and not worth it. But when it comes to appreciating some nice piece of art like this, I felt I could take some time and do the needful. You gotta have understood that I am going to praise this movie. You are right! This is one of the greatest films I have seen including all the nice Hollywood/Bollywood flicks. Storyline is new, dark, and extremely focused and does not lose the track at any point. The acting department holds some incredibly talented Marathi actors especially the lead actors Upendra Limaye and Mukta Barve. This is the greatest I have seen from Upendra. Direction is quite good. The territories and camera angles make the important darkness needed by the storyline. At the same time shows some pretty cases to help the love story. In the end, one cannot forget the largest contribution - Music. Ajay-Atul has done an awe- inspiring job. I will suggest this film to everyone any day!


'Jogwa' literarily means alms – begging in the name Goddess Yellama. The movie attempts to discover the wretched inhuman practices of the Goddess Yellama cult that were prevalent since long in southern Maharashtra and northern Karnataka & Andhra Pradesh. The kids with an incomprehensible illness or deformities were sacrificed supposedly to serve Goddess Yellama but were sexually exploited by the villagers in reality. The movie succeeds in exploring this heinous practice to some extent but does so too loudly lacking the finesse of an earlier movie 'Giddh' (1984) that said the storyline on the same topics with stark realism without pulling any punches. Young woman Sulie (Mukta Barve)finds having a knot (Jat) in her hair while other young man, Tayappa(Upendra Limaye), passes traces of blood in his urine. The only remedy available, according to the prevailing traditions, was to sacrifice them in the service of Goddess Yalamma. They gotta bow down to tradition, much vs their wish, and live on begging for food. They gotta not receive married and the man gotta live like a woman draping a sari for the rest of his life. They are invited to perform cult's devotional songs and dance in praise of the Goddess on auspicious opportunities but,at the same time, they gotta let their bodies for sexual gratifications of the villagers as sex slaves. The movie goes on to present their love for every another and scuffle vs this deplorable tradition. I think despite its powerful theme, the narrative losses its grip on few opportunities because of excessive melodramatic cases and loud presentation. The melody is extremely melodious and aptly deserves the National Award but it's not at all befitting to the primary theme and darker mood of the film. The same is real of the cinematography. The gimmicks of threading in "Roja' like song and takes at breathtaking territories may be eye pleasing and entertaining but they don't go in tune with the primary theme and, at times, paralyses audience's involvement. It's somewhat like hanging a chandler in the middle of a slum. Incidentally, that reminds me of the funny tricks I.S.Johar used to enjoy in his old movies like 'Bewkoof' wherein action clips from Hollywood films were roped in his films just to boost the terrible production. Realistically, the dark theme of "Jogwa', required a various pace & underlying melody that was more culturally oriented. But these lapses gotta be excused if one wants viewers to come to theatre and watch the movie. So, to sum up, the bold theme, top notch performance by all the actors (with Upendra Limaye excelling and richly deserving the National Award) and melodious musical score by Ajay-Atul (though somewhat incongruous to the primary theme) are the only saving grace for this film. I give it 5 out of 10.
