Deool is a Marathi language drama movie released in 2011. The movie was directed by Umesh Vinayak Kulkarni, and it stars Nana Patekar, Dilip Prabhavalkar, and Jyoti Subhash in the lead roles. The movie follows the story of Keshav Vaze (played by Nana Patekar), a resident of a small rural town named Mangrul, located in the state of Maharashtra, India. Keshav Vaze is an atheist who is not interested in any spiritual or religious activities, unlike his fellow villagers. The people of Mangrul are devotees of their presiding deity, Lord Khandoba, and they believe that the town is the chosen place of Lord Khandoba.

One day, a government officer visits Mangrul and informs the villagers that the government has plans to build a thermal power plant in their town. The power plant would require the displacement of a large number of villagers, and Keshav Vaze leads the protests against the government's plans. In the course of his protests, a strange incident happens, and Keshav Vaze starts experiencing eerie visions.

The villagers believe that these visions are Lord Khandoba's ways of communicating with Keshav Vaze, and they start treating him as a messenger of God. As Keshav Vaze's fame spreads across the state, various political, religious, and commercial entities approach him with their own agendas. Everyone wants to use Keshav Vaze, the messenger of God, to further their own interests.

The movie explores themes of religion, spirituality, politics, and social change. It poses difficult questions such as whether religion and spirituality can coexist, whether religious beliefs can be used for political purposes, and whether the preservation of the environment is more important than economic development.

The movie's strong cast is one of its main highlights. Nana Patekar has delivered an outstanding performance as Keshav Vaze. He portrays the character's transformation from a stubborn and cynical atheist to a reluctant messenger of God, with great subtlety and nuance. Dilip Prabhavalkar is equally impressive as the leader of the village council, who initially despises Keshav Vaze but eventually realizes the truth of his messages. Jyoti Subhash plays Keshav Vaze's wife, and she portrays the character with great empathy and sensitivity.

The movie's direction is also noteworthy. The director, Umesh Vinayak Kulkarni, has successfully captured the essence of rural life in Maharashtra. The movie's beautiful cinematography, which captures the scenic beauty of the rural landscapes, adds to the movie's overall appeal.

Overall, Deool is an excellent movie that raises important questions and explores complex themes. It is a must-watch for those interested in Indian cinema, spirituality, and social issues. The movie's strong cast, direction, and cinematography make it an engaging and thought-provoking cinematic experience.
