PLOT : Based on two of Russian writer Gogol's stories,
it revolves around the relationship between Ganpatrao Turay-Patil and Ganpatrao Moray-Patil, two bachelors
who are temperamentally and physically each other's opposites, but are inseparable friends since childhood. Covering a span of 20 years, it shows how the two
friends, who are also next door neighbours have a
series of arguments over a beautiful old sword which
Moray possesses and Turay covets. The heated exchanges, fuelled by the village hoodlums, result in
a court case, which ultimately ruins the friends and
their friendship, while the troublemakers thrive.
ROLE : Ganpatrao Turay Patil.
