Court is all about a sixty five year old singer-activist Narayan Kamble (Vira Sathidar), who is arrested on the grounds of pushing worker Vasudev Pawar to commit suicide with one of his supposedly provocative songs.
Once arrested, criminal defense lawyer Vinay Vohra (Vivek Gomber), takes it upon himself to fight for Narayan Kamble’s bail, while prosecution lawyer Nutan (Gitanjali Kulkarni) ensures he doesn’t.
What follows is a never ending trial, Judge Sadavarte’s (Pradeep Joshi) understanding of the case and what Narayan Kamble has to go through.
The film that has award won the National Film Award for the Best Film, breaks the stereotype, entertains you as well as showcases the reality of our country’s flawed judicial system.
The film has a solid script, has been intelligently scripted and brilliantly executed.
The makers have paid full attention to all the minute details of this time and that is something which will impress you throughout.
Not one, but all the performances need to be appalled as everyone has been cast perfectly and have done full justice to their parts.
What’s refreshing is that fact that the film Court takes you very close to reality. It only questions our beliefs but also makes us think of what’s going on around us.
Court is way above films like Mohan Joshi Hazir Ho and Ek Ruka Hua Faisla. It is a film that offers a wealth of meaning and in the process ends up moving you.
The entire experience of watching this film has a haunting effect on you and this one will stay in your minds for days after you have seen it.
All in all, Court is an eye opener and such makers must be encouraged.
Chaitanya Tamhane needs a standing ovation!!
