We had seen endless number of comedy movies in Marathi. But not many of them will feature in romantic comedy genre. “Mumbai Pune Mumbai” is one romantic comedy everyone must see. It is nothing but good movie watching experience. The argument between Mumbaikar and Punekar are age old. Both try to better each other. We read about it in many novels many TV shows and movie. Yet it is as fresh as a blooming flower every day. We never get tired of it. We will get the same hilarious argument in this movie too between a young Mumbai girl and Puna boy.


A young modern girl played by Mukta Barve, travels alone from Mumbai to Pune just to meet her probable husband selected by her mother. While looking for address, she asks one local boy played by Swapnil Joshi, exact location of the house. These are two protagonist of the movie and these are only two characters in the movie. When the girl reaches her destination she finds the house locked. So she decides to leave and call the probable husband later saying she is not interested. On the way she meets the local Puna boy again and decides to roam around Pune for the remaining day. So during the day when they are together we find the different lifestyles of two neighboring cities. But this arguments and counter arguments somehow bring them together. So will they carry forward it into any relationship? What will happen to the probable husband? We will fund it out in a climax of the movie.


There is not a dull moment in 100 minutes movie. So Director Satish Rajwade must be commended for this. He did excellent job. As for acting Swapnil Joshi was absolutely brilliant. He was in top form. Mukta Barve did great but her accent could have been better for Mumbai born modern girl’s character, which Swapnil adapted perfectly. Technically movie had no flaws. Movie is good visual treat, great work by cinematographer. Movie is a different experiment in Marathi Cinema and was successful one. I will say it set the standard for any other romantic movie.


If I have to rate this movie I will give it 9 out of 10.
