Golkeri – as the name suggests will give you a taste of sweet, sour and salt taste. This Gujarati movie is directed by Viral Shah and stars Malhar Bharai and Manasi Parekh in leading roles.
An official remake of 2017 hit Marathi movie, Muramba, which keeps the basic storyline intact while adding the regional elements in the storyline. This is the second collaboration of Malhar Thakkar and Viral Shah after the movie Midnights with Menka in 2018. Manasi Parekh who also produced the film made her Dhollywood debut with this film.
Golkeri is about two beautiful modern confused couple, Harshita and Sahil and their viewpoints. Even though the movie is quite predictable, the perfect casting and the engaging storyline keeps the audiences engrossed.
Malhar Thakkar did her role perfectly as the 26-year-old man who is immature and scared to get out of his comfort zone. Manasi is fresh air to the D-Town, excels as the layered character of Harshita with ease. She perfectly fits into the strong-headed Amdavadi girl, balancing her work and home. Sachin Khedekar and Vandana Pathak online chemistry and comedy timing are eye-soothing. Sachin Khedekar’s performance is so effective that some of his dialogues will scold you in the way. All the other actors also need to be commended for their performances.
However, the film’s first half feels dragging at places that affect the viewing experience. The second half of the movie is gripping. The dialogues could be better especially the conversations between Sahil and his parents.
Irrespective small flaws, the beautiful performances, and soothing music that makes it a one time watch. It is worth a watch for those who prefer a light movie viewing experience.
