Elizabeth Ekadashi Reviews
Rarely do filmmakers make a children's film and that too with such class. After directing the much acclaimed 'Harishchandrachi Factory' in 2009, director Paresh Mokashi returns with this amazing tale of a kid who shoulders the responsibility of earning for his family.
Paresh Mokashi after giving us a gem like Harishchandrachi Factory, once again shows us that there is nothing more engaging than a human interest story. The fluidity with which this story moves makes you marvel every frame. Showing Pandharpur in another light, Mokashi gives us a new God through the eyes of young Dnyana who preaches science through his ‘Kirtans’ referring to Newton and Einstein as Gods.
The story might sound familiar, but the innocence of each character gives it a sense of honesty. You will enjoy watching these wonderful child actors as they charm their way into your heart. In case you were wondering about Newton’s Theory of Gravitation and its connection to the film, you will just have to watch it to find out.
This story could’ve actually taken place anywhere, but the director knows its soul very well. No wonder the production set in the backdrop of Pandharpur looks so authentic. The visual beauty of Elizabeth Ekadashi is such that you may not mind overlooking its shortcomings.
