Is This Worth Watching?
When it comes to dirty politics, nobody does it better than the cast of Dhurala. While the eldest son believes he is fit to fight for the title of the village sarpanch, not everybody wants to be a part of that narrative. While politics is a dirty game of its own, adding the spice of family integration is genius. That’s why the twists and turns throughout are amplified when the family is involved.
In this game of chess, who is going to outsmart who? The game is not over until somebody gets his opponent in checkmate. Until then, the game can turn around at any time, so the family attacks each other’s strengths and weaknesses.

The plot is smooth and should be deserving of the title best marathi movie in 2020. The film is well-written and well-established. It has an interesting storyline that does not have any dull moments for the audience. With multiple twits and outstanding performances, this was a hit film in 2020 and should be at the top of everyone’s list.
