Star Value: Child artists Anshuman Joshi and Ketaki Mategaonkar are slowly gaining popularity after the promos and the publicity. The film also has well known Marathi actors like Dilip Prabhvalkar, Santosh Juvekar, Nandu Madhav, Jitendra Joshi and Amruta Khanvilkar. However, for Marathi films, presence of big stars doesn’t matter since it is the story or the plot that attracts the audience.
Hype: The promos of the movie instantly impressed the audience when they were released last year. The excitement for the movie rose after it was appreciated the world over at various film festivals. Later on, the fact that the movie was postponed a number of times further increased its popularity.
Music: There isn’t much scope for music in Shala but that shouldn’t be a worry.
Prediction: Judging by the fact that the film is eagerly awaited, it will surely gain a very positive opening. And if the initial reports are positive, the word-of-mouth will help the film continue its reign in the forthcoming weeks.
