A group of eunuchs barge into an old man's house to hide and the old man helps them then and in their lives as well.

At a time when eunuchs are looked down upon, feared or treated with disrespect, one man's quest to help them do better in life changes the mindset of many others. This is just one example of how a determination coupled with a small amount of help can bring changes in the lives of outcasts.

A retired Army Major named Akhande spends his time playing pranks and troubling the villagers. His activities are nothing short of childish tricks and the villagers are fed up of him. But Akhande is in no mood to change. He goes to the extent of faking his death in order to bring the villagers together to discuss about the development of the village. On the other hand, there is the group of eunuchs Mausi ( Sanjay Kulkarni), Rani ( Dhaval Pokle), Champa (Bhushan Borgaonkar) and Lajjo (Aakash Shinde) who earn their living by begging in trains. After a small altercation, the group, in order to escape the angry passengers seeks refuge at Akhande's house. While they don't harm him and leave the next morning, Akhande finds a ring from his house missing and pesters the eunuchs to return it. In the process he ends up acting as a foster parent to Lajjo and later to the others as well. The film is an account of his striving to make things better for the four underprivileged humans.

'Jayjaykar' is marvelous, the casting is fabulous and the story is brilliant. Rakhi Sawant's first Marathi production is tale of perspective change and success. What could have well turned into a morbid story is made simple and light hearted by Shantanu Rode. Dilip Prabhavalkar excels as the prankster and the energy he has, would make even the youngest actor feel inferior. Sanjay and his 'gang' of eunuch slip under the skin of their characters very easily. The subject has been dealt with in such a way that the smile on your face never wipes off, even when you come back home.

All in all it is a very sensible film that has its heart in place and one that propagates it's message in a beautiful way without making you feel bad or pitiful about the characters, Definitely worth a watch.
