    A treat for your ears you don’t want to miss !!

    Let me begin by saying that I don’t have ear for the classical music.
    My father had seen the original musical play and we decided to watch
    the movie. And what a treat it was !! Starting from the first song ”Sur
    Niragas” you are in awe of the past era and the might of music. I was
    in tears at Shankar Mahadevan’s ”Ghei Chhand Makarand”. And it’s not
    just Shankar, the other two leads Rahul Deshpande and Mahesh Kale (Yes,
    they are the leads even if they are not the faces you see on screen)
    are a treat to hear as well. The filmmakers have done well with the old
    classics and adding new compositions as well which don’t look out of
    place. I could rave on and on about the music, but I would just suggest
    to experience this quality of music. The beauty of movie is that while
    the music is great, it does not fail in other aspects. The storyline is
    tight and moving well in both halves. Background score added to the
    impact. And the actors have well with their parts. No hamming.
    Especially Subodh and Sachin are so excellent that you won’t feel that
    they are not the actual singers. Overall, I wont say ”watch” the movie,
    I’d recommend, ”experience” it !!

    Its a treat for Art Lovers…Speechless performances!!!

    Its a masterpiece by Subodh Bhave on his debut. I really do not know
    much about classical music, but it doesn’t matter when you hear
    something like this. There should be a standing ovation after every
    show for the singers, composers, who have succeeded in taking this film
    at some different level. Its been quite a while that we have watched a
    musical film like Katyar Kaljat Ghusali. The cast includes some
    prolific actors like Sachin Pilgaonkar. I have adored him for his
    performances while I was a kid in some films. Its a comeback for him. I
    am sure the audience will love him in this film. Throughout the film,
    you feel like Sachin and Subodh are actually singing. Lyrics, Story,
    Dialogues, Sound, Lighting is as good as the music. My favorite
    dialogue in the movie,” Live Long. Keep Singing.” and ”Any artist lives
    for that moment, when the audience wants the artist(singer) to perform
    and they keep applauding for the sheer talent. Shankar Mahadevan, our
    beloved one has done really well as an actor, as its his debut too. I
    cannot eulogize him more as he has been impeccable in his music and his
    songs in the film. Noteworthy and Excellence by Rahul Deshpande,
    Shankar Mahadevan, Mahesh Kale and Arijit Singh, Divya Kumar, Shivam
    Mahadevan. The Music is soothing and Soul of KKG.

    Best Marathi Musical Film with great Acting, music & songs. 8.5/10

    ‘Katyar Kaljat Ghusali’ is the best Marathi Movie of 2015.I Watched it
    on the First day with my family,it blew my mind.And the subtitles
    helped a lot to understand the meaning of lyrics. Best screenplay so
    far and impeccable performances.Storyline was good, the ‘katyar’
    wasgood too.No one can imagine Sachin sir in a negative role but he
    gave a very powerful performance.Music was really good,every song in
    the movie was impeccably & perfectly written.Since I haven’t seen
    the’play'(natak), I enjoyed watching the film. Shankar Ehsaan Loy and
    Jitendra Abhishek’s soulful notes will echo in your ears and give you a
    happy hangover. Subodh Bahave who enthralled everyone with great movies
    like ‘Balgandharva’ & ‘Lokmanya Balgandharva Tilak’ is back with this
    Movie.Its a masterpiece and was not easy to remake, but Subodh did a
    fantastic job. Katyar means ‘a dagger through the heart’. There is
    Indian classical music and Marathi Natya Sangeet.The Everything was
    Perfect .. (Hope that there’ll be more similar movies like Katyar)

    Brilliant production value & a brilliant film from all aspects

    This film got a standing ovation where I watched it. This is for the
    first time I witnessed standing ovation. Usually the producers demand
    some degree of commercial elements in the film to make it commercially
    successful. This film preserves the authenticity of the story, without
    compromising on any of it’s aspect. This is top class production
    values. I am absolutely sure this film will get standing ovation in
    various international screenings.

    The film is based on a play of same name & film makers have done well
    to preserve the authenticity of script & music. The heart of the film
    is classical music, which is very well choreographed. The climax of the
    film is amazing & literally gave me goose-bump.

    Epic Movie

    Great work by TRISTAR Sachin,Subodh,Shankar. One of the best musical
    drama movie of the decade. This is an example of how great Indian
    classical music and marathi natya sangit is. As far as acting is
    concerned everyone played their part very beautifully especially
    Shankar Mahadevan who made his acting debut with this film was a treat
    to watch. Subodh Bhave a versatile actor who made his directorial debut
    with this masterpiece. Impeccable performances by everyone. True
    performer of this movie are singers, composers and lyricist they really
    pulled it off. Awesome songs sung by awesome singers. Arshad Muhammad,
    Divya Kumar, Arijit Singh, Shankar Mahadevan Rahul Deshpande, Mahesh
    Kale what a beautiful voice they have. This makes me say that ”hi
    katyar kaljat ghusli”.

    must watch movie,splendid performances by subodh Bhave and never seen Sachin Pilgaokar

    awesome storyline and fantastic acting done by Subodh Bhave,Sachin and
    Amruta Khanvilkar, rest of the crew also done their job very well like
    singer turned actor(first time) Shankar Mahadevan,Sakhshi
    Talwar,Mrinmayi Deshpande. but of course Sachin and Subodh are the
    center of the movie and story as well. apart from storyline music is
    the most important factor contributing making this movie must
    watchable,i must write here that songs are must listen by music
    lover.the essence of classical music is kept very peak by the
    singers-Rahul Deshpande and Shankar Mahadevan!! Divya Kumar,Arjit
    Singh,Mahesh Kale all did good job but the classical music lovers got
    the Diwali treat of awesome songs sung by Rahul Deshpande and Shankar
    Mahadevan. Subodh Bhave-an actor and director of the movie is like gem
    of Marathi cine industry.marvelous performance by him after
    Lokmanya.hats off to him. Sachin-never seen role,gray shade of his role
    depicts the actual humane tendency in both senses-bad and good. all
    Marathi lovers must go and watch this movie and enjoy the harmony of
    the overwhelming songs also.

    A Musical Extravaganza

    One of the most wonderful musical I have seen lately. It’s not a
    perfect movie content wise as the plot seems to be irrational at some
    points but that is the exact point.

    The movie has a character which is invisible but is present in every
    frame. It’s music. The melody and notes will make you ignore the stray
    flaws it contains.

    If you don’t adore Hindustani Classical Music, I’d suggest you not to
    bother. If you love Indian classical, you can’t afford to miss it. If
    you don’t know what is the power of Indian classical, you should watch
    this.

    A Musical Masterpiece

    We coincidentally ended up watching Katyar Kaljat Ghusli on the opening
    day, when while browsing through the list of movies I took its name and
    my father remembered the same from his childhood. I was really
    fortunate to end up watching the same (its my first Marathi movie in a
    Cinema Hall).

    A Musical Masterpiece with excellent acting by Sachin and Subodh Bhave,
    the movie is a must go for any music lover (I don’t particularly listen
    to classical music), but especially for lover of Classical Hindustani
    music. With a lot of original songs by Pt. Jitendra Abhisheki being
    retained, Shankar-Ehsan-Loy have not just done justice to the original,
    but have added their own touch and blended their classical music with
    the old.

    With almost half of the movie and songs in Urdu, I would recommend this
    movie even to non-Marathi speaking viewer.

    No Words a limit …

    A movie which is related to music , is always seen as a movie , with no
    credibility, No liking and No life. And on top of that if the movie is
    with Classical music is always recognized as boring. Now Thinking ‘
    Katyar Kaljat Ghusali ‘ is in that category; then you doing the biggest
    mistake in judging movies a great caliber. The movie is all about,
    Music , FriendShip , Forgiveness , love , ego, Help , Anger , Hatred.
    The Movie displays how music was the prime entertainment option in
    British rule, and how British rulers made use of strategy of divide and
    rule , and Indians used to fall for the pray. But Indians have great
    qualities such as power of forgiveness, love , talent and perseverance
    , that over comes , hatred and ego. All this is directed and played
    purely with music. The movie is a must watch, those who admires all
    that I said in my previous lines. The Movie , most of renowned ,
    musicians , actors… So go and watch it in Theatre

    An unforgettable musical treat!

    Katyar Kaljat Ghusli has its crux in its music. The music of the movie
    is the star of the movie. Hats off to the whole cast and crew of the
    movie who worked for three and a half years to carve out this
    masterpiece. I would specially mention Shankar Mahadevan, Rahul
    Deshpande and Mahesh Kale for their mesmerizing voice with songs like
    Sur Niragas Ho, Ghei Chhand Makarand, Dil Ki Tapish & many more. Shivam
    Mahadevan is like the icing on the cake with the very beautiful song
    Mann Mandira Tejane. Sachin Pilgaonkar, Subodh Bhave, Shankar
    Mahadevan, Amruta Khanvilkar, Mrunmayee Deshpande, Pushkar Shrotri &
    Sakshi Tanvar have given justice to their respective role. A must watch
    film for all those who love music.

    One of the best musicals of all time

    This movie elevates Marathi cinema and Indian classical music to
    highest possible level. Please watch and support Marathi Cinema by
    buying authentic copies of audio/video because you will most certainly
    want to watch this movie again and again for its class and music. I
    have ordered mine :). Singers Rahul Deshpande and Shankar Mahadevan
    have just created a master piece. Actor and Directory Subodh Bhave have
    also shined so well in the lights of our legend Sir Sachin Pigaonkar.
    Love the story as well. This movie correctly portrays the free open
    minded pundits that believed truly in the art of singing and gave all
    equal opportunity to compete and excel.

    A surreal experience

    A lot has already been said about this cultural phenomenon in the
    Marathi world. Here’s adding my two cents on it.

    Katyar… is a film about the centuries-old, grand tradition of
    classical music in India with royal patronage. It is based on a Marathi
    play of the same name, originally released in 1967 as a ”Sangeet Natak”
    aka musical. The genre of music prevalent in such plays was called
    ”Natyasangeet” which was and still is an immensely popular art form in
    Marathi culture. With this background in mind and being a natyasangeet
    fan, I walked into the AMC Theater at Cupertino, yesterday, with sky
    high expectations from the film’s music. Not only did it exceed all my
    expectations but it enraptured me, leaving me yearning for more. With
    the two maestros (Rahul Deshpande and Shankar Mahadevan) at the top of
    their game, ably supported by stellar artists, each rendition felt like
    a savory treat to devour. Appreciation abounded around me in the form
    of head nods and leg taps. As for me, having grown up listening to
    these songs being played by my grandfather on his harmonium, this
    brought back countless childhood memories – as a result of which there
    were some embarrassingly tearful moments throughout the duration of the
    movie. Hopefully the head-nodders and leg-tappers were too engrossed to
    notice…

    The story revolves around a man’s (Khan Saheb’s) battered ego and his
    resulting dangerous obsession with winning at all costs. This is so
    fundamental to human nature that it easily strikes a chord. And who
    better to play the troubled, envious, complex Khan Saheb, than the
    veteran actor Sachin, who infuses such humanity in the character that
    your heart goes out to him even in his darkest moments. From the modest
    and aspiring talented artist to the manipulative, conniving,
    bordering-on-cruel royal singer, Sachin captivates us at every stage of
    the character’s transformation. Subodh Bhave, though slightly miscast
    as the young and impulsive Sadashiv, is sincere and convincing. As for
    Shankar Mahadevan, I had my doubts about his histrionic abilities, but
    he seems so much like the benevolent music-loving Panditji in real
    life, that he fit in really well. Amruta Khanvilkar and Mrunmayee
    Deshpande are adorable as the innocent childhood friends who are forced
    into estrangement through no fault of their own. On a side note, all
    the female characters in the film, are shown to be spectacularly
    practical which is a refreshing change – one of them adeptly stops a
    man from committing murder while another questions her husband’s
    decision to gift a ”katyar”(dagger) as the prize for a music
    competition. If only men listened…

    The stunning visuals, the background score and the beautiful costumes
    also deserve a mention. The movie’s high production value is quite
    evident in most of the scenes. Overall, a surreal experience –
    especially for the musically inclined.

    In the barrage of films and other entertainment products that come our
    way, every once in a while comes a creation that touches your soul and
    leaves an indelible mark on it. For me, Katyar Kaljaat Ghusli is that
    gem of a film.

    It’s a musical masterpiece

    What a movie!! It’s a musical masterpiece.

    Excellent direction, very good cinematography, very beautiful acting,
    excellent music / songs.

    I think this movie will get one of the Oscars..!

    It’s a must watch movie for classical music lovers. The low-high-low
    notes in all the songs are just fantastic. You’ll also love the passion
    shown for music.

    If you are a non Marathi, then also you can go and watch the movie as
    it has English Subtitles. Also, there’s also use of Hindi/Urdu in the
    movie, so you’ll get into the story very easily.

    One of the best movies in recent times… Absolutely marvelous !!!

    Someone who loves music cannot miss this movie… It has every
    ingredient for a movie. Strong storyline, best direction, superb acting
    & music that crosses all the generations. The climax of the movie is
    icing on the cake. It cannot get better than that.

    Casting of the movie was superlative. Sachin with his inherent
    arrogance suits as khan-saheb. Panditji is really niragas. Subodh
    enhanced the character of Sadashiv and other played their part very
    well.

    Shankar-Ehsan-Loy’s music does add value to original music by Abhisheki
    bua.

    Subodh did a masterful job.. Marathi cinema has touched another height.

    Its a mesmerizing musical experience

    KKG is a masterpiece with a predictable plot. The rating is not for the
    plot but the music, cast and performance by each and everyone involved
    in the creation of this masterpiece. The strength of the movie lies in
    its music. The stars have done their part really well. Amazing
    performance by Sachin sir and Mahadevan sir. The movie not only
    recreates the era but also make the watcher take the experience with
    them. The movie has many débutant Mahadevan sir (Panditji – actor),
    Subodh Bhave sir (Director, actor), Mahesh Kale (singer).

    Special mention for Sachin Sir, he has played the role of Khansaheb
    phenomenally well. While watching I could not believe he didn’t sing
    his songs.

    This is a piece of art which should be cherished for years to come!

    Marathi Cinema @ its best(Suranchi Katyar Kharach Kaljat Ghusli)

    The story takes us to the musical era which has not seen or heard by my
    generation. Still as a fan of classical music I went to watch the
    movie. I was aware the movie will b good but It was unreal experience
    to watch the acting, listen to one of kind music is just out of this
    world. There was a time where people would have laughed if someone say
    I am going for Marathi movie. Now even Hindi audience is coming to
    watch Marathi movies. I don’t think its just a movie. ”I THINK ITS AN
    EXPERIENCE WHICH SHOULD BE ENJOY BY EACH GENERATION”

    Special Mention to

    Sachin Pilgaokar – for showing us and given a negative role how
    powerful his acting can be

    Shankar Mahadeven – never felt its his debut movie

    Subodh Bhave – from Balgandharva to Lokmanya to Katyar, he is just
    increasing audience exp. to sky by each of his movies

    Shankar-Ehsaan- Loy – This trio given evergreen music and will last
    forever

    Sameer Samant,Mangesh Kangne, Mandar Cholkar – for writing new songs
    keeping in mind the essence of originals songs from the play

    I will recommend to all the people to go and experience the saga of
    Katyar

    Shankar Mahadevan with his amazing voice turned out to be good actor

    No words to describe it. One of the masterpieces ever created

    The movie is an adaptation of Marathi play with the same title. The
    movie is about clash of two clans of singers. Obviously the movie has
    numerous songs and each one of those songs is brilliant. Splendid
    singing by few brilliant singers in India viz. Shankar Mahadevan, Rahul
    Deshpande, Mahesh Kale and Arijit Singh. ‘Takyar Kaljat Ghusli’ being
    one of the most epic play in Indian history, I personally was worried
    about how good they can transform the play into a movie. To my delight
    and shock it was as brilliant as the epic play and will be considered
    as one of the greatest works in the industry for centuries. A must
    watch movie for all the music loving people. The quality, richness,
    variety and difficulty of singing in the movie is unparalleled.

    Different Strokes

    Let me start this review by saying that a Marathi/Hindi film has not
    inspired me in a long time. The industry constantly puts out movies
    that beg to be smeared; a cheesy mess of acting, dialogue, camera
    movements, and sound that would leave any serious western audience
    member offended. Katyar sidesteps most of these ”film death tropes” as
    I like to call them, and offers a story that would not be complete
    without its music.

    On a surface level, Katyar follows the basic outline of the Prince and
    the Pauper story, a poor man and a rich man who have fundamentally
    different values wish to trade places but must sacrifice a part of
    themselves to do so. The themes of this film are entrenched in the
    music of the different gharanas, which in this case . If anyone is
    curious, the age old Indian conflict of Hindus versus Muslims plays a
    huge part in the movie’s iconography, but is handled with more subtlety
    than I have ever seen in Indian cinema. The actors give off a ZeeTV
    soap opera feel to the whole affair (without the atrocious camera work
    and editing effects); but let’s be real, these actors are really just
    here to give the music and cultural setting. And boy do the sights and
    sounds of this movie impress.

    I could probably do a separate review even longer that this one about
    the film’s soundtrack, but since this is a movie review sight, I’ll
    talk more about how the sounds relate to the film. The booming beats of
    the Hindustani pakhawaj coming with the soothing swarmandal and droning
    tanpura back the voices of Shankar Mahadevan and Subodh Bhave (who had
    Rahul Deshpande singing for him), each of whom give a performances that
    would make the actual legends of this gharana proud. To parallel the
    Hindustani style, the fast tempo, poppy tabla, and light melodies of
    the sarangi and harmonium back Mahesh Kale’s undeniably great voice.
    Each note, voice, melody, and harmony shine through in the production,
    and are really the highlights of the film. The visuals serve to boost
    the music sequences, but don’t offer much more than what a stage
    production of this script could have offered. In fact, at many points
    of he film, I found myself wishing that I had seen this as a play
    instead of a movie; what a play would have lost in terms of production
    value, it would gain in terms of pure charm.

    Overall, Katyar is bursting at the seams with Indian cultural charm. I
    felt like the film opened a connection between me and my Indian
    ancestors, a connection that I’ve never really felt before. Despite not
    breaking away completely from some of the egregious tropes of Indian
    cinema, the magnetic effect the film had on my subconscious makes it
    one of the best Marathi/Hindi movies I’ve ever seen. I may have my
    biases as an aficionado of classical music, but this film is an
    important showcase of Indian culture and music, and a must watch for
    anyone that is even remotely interested in these topics.

    A musical classic – simply a treat audio & visual treat

    Excellent direction Subodh Bhave!! The voices of Shankar Mahadevan &
    Rahul Deshpande take the movie to a different league altogether. Very
    good acting by Sachin, Subodh. Well backed by Shanker, Amruta &
    Mrunmayee. We need more movies like these to enthrall our souls.
    Storyline has been in line without compromising on the pace or music of
    the film. The visual are also a treat. Only after watching the movie,
    did I know Subodh had directed it. His knack of picking challenging
    roles (like Tilak) will help him scale new height not only in Marathi
    film industry but also Indian cinema. Every one who helped produce this
    films deserves credit. Even the producers for backing the venture
    inspite of it not being a non masala flick.

    An excellent remake of the classical musical play

    Distinct story, amazing cinematography, great actors and beautiful
    singing by today’s Indian classical music artists who have invested all

    singer leads won the national award for this movie. The child actors

    the acting and subtitles. I recommend watching the movie once you have
    3 continuous hours, as opposed to watching it in parts, to embark upon
    this soulful musical odyssey; I enjoyed every bit of this classical
    musical drama!

    Good movie

    I liked the movie with its story and execution by Subodh Bhave.
    Screenplay is awesome and dialogues too good. Acting by Sachin was too
    good and he did great justice to the role of Khan Saheb. The music
    theme is of course there but for the classical music lovers this will
    be a treat to watch. I loved it myself personally without too much
    inclination to classical music, but did develop liking towards it after
    watching this movie.

    Absolute treat to ears…musical at its Best

    Making such a movie needs courage and choosing it as a debut and
    pulling it off so well needs standing ovation for Subodh Bhave its
    director..Superb start cast comprising veteran Sachin Pilgaonkar and
    others Mrunmayee,Subodh, Amruta etc are simply superb in their
    roles..Sakshi is as dependable as well and Shankar Mahadevan could not
    have chosen better movie to show his acting…He fits like T in
    Panditjis role..Story is gripping and songs add a different dimension
    to take experience at a level not experienced earlier..Music is top
    class to say the least.Overall a visual treat..Even those who do not
    know Marathi but understand Hindi can follow it well as high percentage
    of dialogues are Hindi/Urdu.
