In the last few years, Marathi cinema has really gone ahead of Bollywood and most other language films in India. The filmmakers are fearlessly experimenting with form and content, and are delivering some fine films. But most of them don’t travel beyond the state because of either distribution problem or lack of English subtitles. We try to put out recco post of such films whenever we can.

Here’s the VOTD – Nikhil Mahajan has put out his debut Marathi feature ‘Pune 52’ on youtube. And with proper English subtitles. Do watch.

About the film – Pune 52 is a neo-noir drama set in the city of Pune in the year 1992. Its a story of a private detective with a failing marriage. How his life takes a dramatic turn after he takes a case that is deeply personal and highly complex forms the plot of this intense Marathi language feature debut of Nikhil Mahajan. Starring National Award winning actor Girish Kulkarni, Sonali Kulkarni and Sai Tamhankar, and produced by IME Motion Pictures and Arbhaat Nirmitee.

    I had been waiting for this since its release. I failed to catch it in the theatres and couldn’t find a DVD in any of the stores.

  2. Saw it last night and what a brilliant film it was! I can’t recommend it enough. It was unfortunate that I couldn’t make it to MAMI but filmmakers like NM are making it possible for us cine-enthusiasts to catch up on their works. Looking forward to more such viewings.
