The Marathi movie captivated audiences with its compelling narrative and stellar performances that resonated across generations. The movie explores the concept of courage, highlighting the remarkable strength displayed by an ordinary individual when driven by a sense of righteousness. As we celebrate the one-year milestone of the Dharmaveer movie, let us delve into the essence of this cinematic masterpiece.

Dharmaveer’s movie story

The movie begins when a TV news reporter, Tanvi Mahapatra, arrives at Thane railway station. She feels upset about missing a Bollywood party due to her assignment of covering the 20th memorial service of late politician Anand Dighe in Thane. She realizes she knows very little about Anand Dighe and discovers that after his death, locals destroyed the Sunitidevi Singhania Hospital. An auto-rickshaw driver suggests that she meet the common Thanekars to understand the impact Anand Dighe had on their lives.

The story then takes us back to the early days of the Shiv Sena, where a young Anand Dighe is a dedicated party worker. He gains prominence within the party and becomes a close aide to Bal Thackeray, the party’s supremo. Their relationship is marked by mutual respect and admiration.

At the memorial service, Tanvi meets several people, including Anand Dighe’s mentees, Eknath Shinde and Rajan Vichare, as well as Anita Birje and his family. Through these interactions, Tanvi discovers that Anand Dighe was not just a political leader; he was deeply connected to the people of Thane and dedicated his life to their well-being.

Despite his tragic end, Anand Dighe remains alive in the hearts of the Thanekars, even after his death. The film highlights his selfless service and the lasting impact he had on the community, portraying him as more than just a political figure.
