Astounding accomplishment in those times
27 November 2019 | by ganeshjadhav41See all my reviews

This movie is a great accomplishment by Marathi film industry in those times. The story, acting, screenplay everything is awesome. Even though this movie is said to be a remake of Child's Play (1988), the storyline is very much different. Only common theme is a possessed doll (I've seen Child's Play too). I have watched Zapatlela since childhood, and I still watch it. It must be noted that this movie became so popular, it was dubbed in Hindi. It is the only Marathi movie I know of which has been dubbed in any other language. This is the most iconic role of Lakshya (Lakshmikant Berde), suiting his style of comedy. Only he could blend the fear and comic acting this sublimely.
