Nana Patekar plays the title character in the 2016 Indian Marathi-language drama film Natsamrat alongside Mrunmayee Deshpande and Medha Manjrekar. The movie, which is based on a play by the same name written by playwright Kusumagraj, shows the terrible family life of a stage actor who has quit playing but can't let go of his fond memories of the theatre and the stage.
Under the auspices of Great Maratha Entertainment, Gajanan Chitra, and Fincraft Media and Entertainment Pvt. Ltd., it is directed by Mahesh Manjrekar and produced by Nana Patekar and Vishwas Joshi. The movie had its official release on India's New Year's Day of 2016, and until Sairat took that title, it was the most successful Marathi movie ever.
The movie is a tragedy about a veteran Shakespearean actor Ganpat Ramchandra Belwalkar, also known as Appa (Nana Patekar), who gained notoriety and fortune by performing in plays based on various works, particularly those by William Shakespeare. He also received the award and the highest title of NAT-SAMRT (emperor of acting in theatre).
After that, Appa leaves his children his whole fortune. He never keeps anything to himself and is quite open about his opinions. He has no problem using profanity when expressing his opinions. His wife Kaveri (Medha Manjrekar), whom he affectionately refers to as "Sarkar," and his close friend Rambhau (Vikram Gokhale) are the only people who can truly comprehend his character.
His wife's daughter His forthright demeanour occasionally puts his wife Neha (Neha Pendse) and son Makrand (Ajit Parab) in awkward circumstances when they have visitors or when their daughter uses profanity in class. When their granddaughter performs a folk dance taught by Appa, which her mother Neha does not like, their friendship reaches its pinnacle. They get into a fight, and when they get home, Neha hits her daughter. The following day, Neha makes a plan to leave with them by moving out, hoping that Appa will give them the space they need. Appa discovers her scheme and decides to leave while making a remark to his son "The entire world is a stage, and sadly, I have a tragic part to play."
Kaveri, Appa's wife, is highly supportive of him and doesn't question his choice. They relocate to the home of their daughter Vidya and their son-in-law. Appa keeps acting in his honest and carefree manner, occasionally using a few expletives. Rahul Barve (Sunil Barve), their son-in-law, is a kind-hearted engineer who has a high position in his organisation. Similar uncomfortable situations also arise for Vidya (Mrunmayee Deshpande), although Rahul, her spouse, doesn't appear to mind. Appa's poetry (To be or not to be, that is the dilemma) and his fluid recital style are both appreciated by him.
Appa shows up drunk on Vidya's anniversary and humiliates Rahul's boss. Even though Appa apologises the next day, Rahul doesn't appear to mind and dismisses it as a one-off incident.
In the meantime, Appa visits his friend Rambhau after remembering him. Rambhau is grieved by his wife Kumud's passing. He strikes out at Appa for abandoning him in his last moments. The next scene features Rambhau and Appa acting out a beautiful discourse between Karna and Krishna as Rambhau lies in his hospital bed. Appa grants Rambhau his final desire after being mesmerised by Rambhau's performance and feeling sorry for his condition.
The following day, Appa visits his son-in-home. law's When Kaveri informs Appa that Rambhau overdosed on sleeping pills and passed away, Appa admits to having given the drugs to Rambhau, hinting that doing so was his dying wish.
When Appa could not take his poor adaptation of Othello on another occasion, he insulted the son of Rahul's boss. Vidya gets upset by this and confronts her father. She makes their agreement in her outhouse, but her husband still supports Appa and doesn't think anything of it. Vidya sees to it that they are well cared for and that the outhouse is kept in good condition.
Vidya misplaces some money that her husband had given her one day, and when things go wrong, she accuses her parents of taking it. They grow apart as a result of this. Later, when she discovers the money, Vidya recognises her error. Though she offers her parents an apology, it is already too late for Appa and Kaveri have made up their minds to leave. Rahul, Vidya's husband, continues to feel compassion for her parents but is powerless to alter them. They leave the outhouse that night and head to their ancestral village, where they live in an old, decaying house. They stop along the road at a village, where Kaveri passes away from fever. This loss obliterates Appa. He is assisted by Raja, a boot polisher.
Raja, who is homeless and lives with his family under a bridge, is very poor. The grandeur with which Appa had lived as an actor is now making his anguish excruciating in his position of loneliness and poverty, which causes Appa to occasionally be in a delusional state. Appa entertains his customers while he serves tea at a tea stall by reciting poems and scenes from his plays. Siddharth (Sarang Sathaye), a man who respects and loves acting, persistently follows Appa since, to Siddharth, the actor is a hero and a role model. Appa refuses to recognise that he is "Natsamrat" and hides his true identity from Siddharth.
However, Siddarth remains steadfast in his belief that Appa is a superb actress.
Appa discovers in the newspaper one day that his beloved theatre has burned down due to a fire. He heads over there right away and is devastated to discover the theatre in ruins. Siddharth arrives there as well, having been led there by Appa. When Siddharth discloses that he was fully aware of Appa and his background, Appa begins to relive his previous memories and accepts Siddharth's claim that he is the genuine Natsamrat Ganpatrao. Raja and his family also travel there to look for him.
They ask him to move in with them and return home, but he declines. Despite having a devastating conclusion, the movie concludes wonderfully. Appa is hallucinating and alternates between reality and the famous people he used to play as an actor on the same stage. He performs on the theatre stage one last time for Siddharth and declares that "Do you realise, dear Siddarth, that this is the essence of theatre acting? to make one's wish come true" He suddenly yells and puts his hand on his throat before falling to the ground. Everyone rushes to grab him right away, but they discover that he has already left.
