Killa (The Fort) is an outstanding Marathi film. The film revolves around an 11-year-old child named Chinmay ( Chinu) who has a difficult time coping with the death of his father. And soon after losing his father, he’s forced to move from Pune to a small town in Konkan, as his mother (Amruta Subhash) is transferred there.

The story is about how chinu overcomes his feeling of isolations and his challenges at the new place while making new friends.
In the small town school, Chinu is a smart and studious student from Pune, and he gets friends who are tapori students from Guhaghar. The conversations of Chinu and his friends are so pure and humors that at few points entire theater goes into big laughter. It is said that " you need to build genuine characters, and when they speak funny, it will be pure gross humor which will hold audience and story does not need visual humor. Here, the script is so powerful that it achieves a balance of being humorous as well as sensitive when required.

Most impressive in the acting front is Chinu's friend named "Bandya" and his frank dialog delivery adds the necessary wit to the story. Chinu's mother Amrita Subhash carries her role well and does justice to her character. Chinu appears as more matured to his age and impresses you with his performance in quiet scenes.

I have heard that " people who turn director from cinematographer are better directors" but for the first time I saw an example in Avinash Arun. His cinematography is incredibly beautiful with scenes of sea and fort and lovely nature all around. Avinash Arun has done a remarkable job as the director as well. After watching Killa, one must be compelled to think that "do we really need a perfect, powerful protagonist to make a movie touching experience? well, a flawed protagonist will work if we have a real story and humorous screenplay.

There are few experiences in your life, few stories, few movies which stay with you for a long time, and you keep on saying that was "this film was an incredible experience". Killa is one of them.

At the 62nd National Film Awards, it was awarded the Best Feature Film in Marathi Award.

Killa is wonderfully crafted Marathi movie and worth watching.

4 stars for Innocent Griping Story - Killa
