Marathi cinema’s first-ever zombie film Zombivli is a movie that has ticked all the boxes. If you are looking for horror, comedy, drama, romance, and something that still leaves a social message, look no further. Director Aditya Sarpotdar has managed to bring forth every message in the best way possible through the talents of Amey Wagh, Lalit Prabhakar, and Vaidehi Parashurami.
Lalit Prabhakar enters the film, and his look as Vishwas is the first thing that will catch your attention. He is known to be a good actor, and here he is as mild as he needs to be. The comedy begins almost as soon as the film starts. There is a mystery in the movie when it comes to Lalit’s alter ego, Jaggu, which is his right hand. This scenario is similar to Gopal’s (Ajay Devgn) issue in Golmaal.
The way the zombie is created is supposed to be scary, which it is, but more than that, it is awkwardly funny to see a man turn into a zombie. However, since Zombivli is a horror comedy, this also works. Amey Wagh as Sudhir Deshmukh looks adorable as soon as he comes in the film. His pregnant wife, Seema (Vaidehi Parashurami), fits into the story almost too well.
Trupti Khamkar as the Deshmukhs’ maid is hilarious as always. She is heartwarming with her naive personality. Sudhir’s first interaction with a zombie is intense and funny. Amey is too much fun, and Lalit might not be at his level, but he is impressive too.
