Marathi Cinema has been making powerful and hard-hitting movies centered on stigmas and social prejudice. Gajendra Ahire, the celebrated Marathi writer & director, debuts in Hindi with "The Silence". We come across the cases of sexual abuse on a daily basis and it is one of the most underlined issues. "The Silence", based on a true story, touches this burning subject and reveals the ordeal experienced by the women. The screenplay is amazing, it keeps you fastened and each scene has an impact, the background score will haunt the audience for a long time. The flashbacks are edited wonderfully; the camerawork and the cinematography are beautiful. Nagraj Manjule debuts as an actor and he has done a trailblazing job. He looked natural and was able to bring all the malice required for the character. Anjali Patil goes in the skin of the character and her expressions reveal most of her character. Then there is Raghubir Yadav, a shattered father, he can do such roles in his sleep. All the other cast has done impeccable work and they all were convincing. The Silence gives you food for thought and things to ponder. It shakes the moral ground on which we are sitting comfortably and how we close our eyes to such heinous and dreadful acts. Big hands for a powerful movie. Kudos Gajendra Ahire.
Especially since it's based on a true story. Quite a typical story I'm sure for many women there unfortunately.
What a brilliant star cast. Great effort by Anjali Patil and Raghuveer Yadav. Definitely a must watch. Would highly recommend.
