Guthlee Ladoo Movie Review :-
Guthlee (Dhanay Seth) runs behind a van selling jamun seed (guthlee) powder to learn to write his name in a community. Because he belongs to a lower caste, the intelligent boy attends school secretly, standing outside the classroom near the window. Director-writer Ishrat R Khan and co-writers Srinivas Abrol and Ganesh Pandit convey the sufferings of an oppressed class through Guthlee, his close buddy Ladoo (Heet Sharma), and their parents throughout the film.
The more Guthlee attempts to realize his dream of attending school, the more the truth and society’s hypocrisy become apparent. An upper-caste woman chastises Guthlee’s father, Mangru (Subrat Datta), for touching her child’s bicycle but has no qualms about receiving money from him, while a schoolteacher sings a patriotic hymn to the class but rushes the small boy away. However, the story appears to overexplain at times and conveys the irony too frequently.
Anil Akki’s cinematography is noteworthy, particularly the camera angles employed to depict the community. The segment’s universe is created genuinely, whether it’s the surroundings, the unsafe and unclean working conditions, or how individuals are treated.
Whether representing the haves or the have-nots, the characterisation is engaging. Sanjay Mishra gives a nuanced performance as the headmaster trapped between societal restraints and doing right by an oppressed group. Subrat Datta and Kalyanee Mulay, who play Guthlee’s parents, make the audience identify with their characters. Kanchan Pagare, who plays Ladoo’s father, and Budhiya and Arif Shahdoli, who play the villainous politician and school owner Chaube, are also notable. The two young performers, Dhanay Seth and Heet Sharma, are terrific as companions on opposite ends of the spectrum in the same universe. Both get the expressions right. It’s heartbreaking to see them do what’s required of them.
The film’s second half loses its momentum and lags in numerous parts as the narrative flits between displaying realism and hope. The film has shortcomings, but it effectively conveys the concept of the Right to Education and the need of being informed of other laws and rights that have been established for all citizens. The story is sad and unpleasant, but it also serves as a shining example of equity and humanity.
