“Love has no language”
It is too late to write on the movie-Sairat. The movie is release in 2016 and i have watched the movie yesterday in 2018 March.
After watching the movie, i feel blessed that the almighty have given me the blessings to watch the movie and a lifelong experience from this movie.
The movie Sairat is a Marathi movie and i don’t know Marathi but as i said Love has no language, so need to learn Marathi to watch the movie and experience the emotions the movie conveyed.
I loved the movie so much that it forced me to write about the movie here.
Movie plot: (Source – Wikipedia)
“The film follows the story of Prashant Kale, aka Parshya, a low-caste young boy, and of Archana Patil, aka Archi, a daughter of a rich “upper caste landlord”. Parshya, although poor, has a good academic record, is good at reading and is the captain and the star player of the local cricket team. Archi is a strong willed girl, who is also academically proficient, but more importantly, known as a headstrong girl who enjoys ‘masculine’ tasks, like driving a tractor or riding a Royal Enfield Bulletmotorcycle. As they both study in college together, it is observed that they slowly start falling for each other. Early on, Archi’s large and muscular maternal cousin Manya tries to intervene and beat up Parshya, but is ordered to stay away by Archi. They slowly find ways to spend time with each other and fall in love.At a celebration of Archi’s misbehaved younger brother, Prince’s birthday, they are discovered by Archi’s family. Archi’s father, being politically connected proceeds to thrash Parshya and his friends. Eventually realizing that there is no way out, Archi and Parshya make an attempt to elope. However, they are discovered by police and taken into custody. There, Archi’s father forces the police to register a false complaint alleging that Archi was gang raped by Parshya and his friends. Realizing this, Archi intervenes and destroys the complaint, insisting that Parshya and his friends be released. Soon after they are released, however, Archi’s father’s goons begin to thrash Parshya and his friends. Seeing this from a distance, Archi intervenes and seizes a pistol from the goons, threatening to fire unless they are released. Soon Parshya and Archi catch a running train and escape the confines of the small town to Hyderabad.In the city of Hyderabad, Archi and Parshya are broke and desperate. Surviving off what little they have, they try for accommodation in a lodge but they are refused accommodation. In frustration, they sleep at the railway station, contemplating their next move. One night, a few men come and awaken them, insisting that they come to the police station. On the way, they begin to drag Parshya and beat him up, while another attempts to rape Archi. However, a lady from the nearby slum, Suman Akka bravely intervenes, brandishing a stick, stepping in and saving the duo from the rogues. Akka stays with her young son, Sanket.Akka offers Parshya and Archi a spare shanty to live in, and helps Archi find employment in a nearby bottling factory, while Parshya starts working as a cook at Akka’s Dosa stall. Archi gradually picks up Telugu with the help of her factory colleague Pooja. Archi starts to miss her home as she does not feel comfortable living in the slums. Archi and Parshya start to make a meagre hand to mouth existence, trying to make the most of the situation with mutual love. However, differences start to crop up in their relationship and they begin to fight with each other a lot. After one of the heated arguments with Parshya, Arshi decides to go back home by train, leaving Parshya but she changes her mind and returns to him. In due course, Archi and Parshya get married in the Registrar’s office where Akka and Pooja stand as witnesses. Subsequently, Archi is shown pregnant and the story moves forward by a few years.Parshya and Archi are now living in a better location and are more well-off. Archi phones her mother from an under construction flat complex, which they have come to see and then hands the phone to her young son Aakash. After the phone call, Archi’s brother Prince and his relatives arrive, carrying gifts from her mother, hinting at reconciliation. Aakash goes to visit a neighbour while Archi and Parshya invite Prince and the other visitors into the flat and serve them tea.The toddler returns with the neighbour and is left at their doorstep. The door is open and the baby enters and discovers that his parents have been hacked to death. Visibly troubled and unable to comprehend the gruesome nature of the honor killing, he walks off and the movie ends.“
The movie starts with a simple upper cast girl and lower class boy love story and end with a very serious issue “Honor Killing”.
I feel Honor killing is the worst act a human being can do. This allows the person to kill another person who is his/her blood relative and why to kill to save the so called honor. This is a Simple thing to understand that everyone have right to leave their life by their will.
We human need to understand that the society, Law, Religion is for the people, not the opposite. These worldly rituals are made to bring the people close to each other but we are using it in opposite manner. No religion or culture teaches us to hate.
With the end of the movie, i feel very bad, that we are in 2018 and dreaming of digitized India, New India and comparing ourselves with the developed country and still among us there are some people who are still narrow minded. I totally honor their thought as well but it should not allow killing anyone. If they have problem then talk to the love birds, make them understand or understand from them, but kill them is not at all good.
“There is no honor in killing”
By this post, i don’t want to heart anyone’s feeling, i am just sharing my feeling here and putting my thought on this.
Now come back to movie-Sairat
The star cast of the movie is wonderful, they acted first time and they are just 16-18 years age group.
The movie is starred by Rinku Rajguru as Archana Patil and Akash Thosar as Prashant kale. The movie is directed by Nagraj Manjule and produced by Nittin Keni, Nikhil Sane. The music is given by Ajay-Atul. The music of the movie is wonderful.
I must appreciate the talent of Rinku and Akash, they have acted like a matured actor.
I end this post with the wonderful thought from Charles Martin-
“Love has its own communication. It’s the language of the heart, while it has never been transcribed, has no alphabet, and can’t be heard or spoken by voice, it is used by every human on the planet. It is written on our souls, scripted by the finger of God, and we can hear, understand, and speak it with perfection long before we open our eyes for the first time.”

While reading the book Seeking wisdom from Darwin to Munger by Peter Bevelin i come to know many real life examples of this psychological effect.
Observe it – Fill one bucket with cold water, another with hot water, and a third with water at room temperature. Put one hand in the bucket of cold water and the other hand in the bucket of hot water. Then put both your hands in the bucket of room temperature water. What happens? You will feel that your cold hand feels warmer and that your warm hand feels colder.
For example, we evaluate stimuli like temperature, loudness, brightness, health, status, or prices based on their contrast or difference from a reference point (the prior or concurrent stimuli or what we have become used to). This reference point changes with new experiences and context. This means that how we value things depend on what we compare them with.
Sales people often try to sell the more costly item first. We are out buying a computer and some diskettes. In comparison to $1,500 computer, diskettes at $10 seem like a bargain. After we buy the big ticket items, the add-ons seem cheap in comparison.
Experiments have shown that we go across town to save $10 on a clock radio but not to save $10 on a large-screen TV. The difference between $100 and $110 seems like a larger saving than the difference between $2850 and $2860. But it’s the same $10 saving.
A hotel has been renting rooms for $100 a night. The day after a hurricane, the hotel raises its prices to $150. Studies show that we consider this unfair. We determine what is fair or not in reference to what we have been used to. This means that policies that have habit-forming consequences may be hard to reverse if they are seen as a loss.
For example, studies show that a person of average attractiveness is seen as less attractive when compared to highly attractive others.
Charles Munger gives another example:
In one experiment, a group of people was asked to choose between $6 and an elegant pen. Most choose the cash. Another group of people was asked to choose between $6, the elegant pen, or an inferior pen. Most choose the elegant pen. By adding an inferior option, another option seemed more attractive.
One more example – Mary is looking at houses. The real estate broker knows that the house he is
trying to sell Mary is in poor shape and a bad area. He starts by showing Mary bad properties in an ugly neighborhood. Afterwards, he takes her to the house he wanted to sell all along. Suddenly this house and the area seem great in comparison to the other houses she saw.
Another example of contrast comparison is when we interview one job candidate after another.
In accounting ex-Satyam fraud
Contrasts may blind us to change until it’s too late. For example, we often don’t notice the bad behavior of others if it goes sour gradually over time.
Often we see reality as constant, although it gradually changes. A stimulus must reach an absolute threshold before we can detect it. Before we notice a change in a stimulus, a certain relative change most occur. If the change is slow enough, we don’t notice the change. Our ability to detect and react to changes in a stimulus decreases as its magnitude increases. To a small stimulus, only a small
amount must be added. To a larger stimulus, a large amount must be added.
Warren Buffett says:
So what is the solution of contrast comparison in our daily life, as peter Bevelin suggested-
From the book: Seeking wisdom from Darwin to Munger by Peter Bevelin
We evaluate our own situation by comparing what we have with what others have.
to one’s own advantage.” We are jealous when we perceive a threat to a valued relationship. Studies show that jealousy is ranked among the top three motives for murder.
You can find a funny envy example in the movie 3 Idiot when Rancho gets first rank then farhan and Raju’s reaction is worth noting down of the human tendency on envy.
