Birthday Special: 6 Marathi films of Ashok Saraf you can binge-watch online


Jun 03, 2021

Ashok Saraf.

We all remember him as the pitiful dad in Hum Paanch. He has been a popular face in the Hindi film and Television industry but thrived the most in Marathi cinema. By now you may have guessed that we are talking about one of the kings of comedy in Marathi cinema, Ashok Saraf.

As the actor turns 74-year-old today, we take a look back at some of his top Marathi films that you must binge-watch if you haven’t already. Here’s the list curated for you...

Ashi Hi Banwa Banwi
8.9OTTplay Rating
Ashi Hi Banwa Banwi is a classic cross-dressing comedy. Ashok plays the lead role of Dhananjay in the film, who forces his male friend to pretend to be his wife so their landlady allows them a place to live. The movie is considered one of the classic comedies that are a must-watch.
8.3OTTplay Rating
If Ashi Hi Banwa Banwi was a hilarious film, Prawaas is a feel-good film telling the story of a 65-year-old man, Abhijat (played by Ashok). The film deserves your time and attention because of the beautiful concept.
Gammat Jammat
7.8OTTplay Rating
Gammat Jammat is yet another comedy that should be on your watchlist. It features Ashok in the role of Phalgun. He kidnaps a businessman’s daughter but things do not go as he expected, making it a non-stop comedy ride for the viewers.
Shejari Shejari
7.4OTTplay Rating
What can you expect when Ashok Kumar teams up with Laxmikant Berde? Nothing less than a laughter riot! The 1990 film Shejari Shejari promises the same.
Dhum Dhadaka
7.3OTTplay Rating
Dhum Dhadaka is a Marathi movie that stands true to its title - celebrations. The film sees Ashok as Ashok Gupchup, who helps his friend Mahesh marry the girl of his dreams. Dhum Dhadaka is the remake of the Tamil film Kaadhalikka Neramillai, that was also remade in Hindi as Pyar Kiye Jaa.
Saade Maade Teen
Even though Saade Maade Teen is considered to be a breakthrough film for Bharat Jadhav, one cannot ignore how important a role Ashok played in the film. A remake of the Hindi classic Chalti Ka Naam Gaadi, Saade Maade Teen became a blockbuster at the Box Office.
