Family katta

 Recently I saw two Marathi movies, actually I like them because generally they depict normal people , normal life, not over the top.

This is about a septuagenarian couple living in a beautiful house in Lonavla. For their 50 th anniversary they invite their children.. 3 sons and one daughter for a family get together. It’s all about their preparations and how children react and then husband dies in the morning only.. as here I see in life also most of the times siblings grow up to be like rivals and always jealous of each other specially brothers, so I don’t understand why people want more children , so that they will have someone of their own to care.

Second one I saw is Bonus.. it’s part fun part cliche, a wealthy boy lives in a chaal for one month to prove his point. Very stereotype people, all poor are good from heart, help each other whereas I have seen lots of time that poor are not kind to their type.secondly changing everything about the rich.. so much so that hero is vegan and he is asked to break his principles and eat meat.. I found it totally unreasonable and foolish.if that was so, why poor want to earn and be rich,but first time saw such a dashing hero in regional movie.. he is very handsome , well dressed and acted well.

Per your recommendation, I saw both movies. Family Katta is very touching. But one thing, in my opinion, is illogical. How come none of the children or grand children enquire deeper into what is wrong with their dad when mom says is not well. And, they are conversing in their own merry way. After all they came for their parents’ 50th wedding anniversary. I think the movie director exaggerated for the movie drama.

I loved the movie Bonus. But this a 100% copy of a real-life incident with a few masala and romance. Have you heard about a Surat billionaire diamond merchant sent his 21 year old son for a month with only Rs.7000 to live on his own. He had stricter rule than this movie. Please read this:

R’s Rue: welcome here!

SG: yes director has taken liberty there and in fee more things also but over all it’s so down to earth with real people.. and Bonus is also filmy but still nice to see.

SG: there is a book..Ultimate Gift by Jim Stovall on this same topic as in Bonus but it’s so different and amazing, worth reading at least for every young person. Teaches a lot.
