Alka Kubal, Prasad Oak, Priyadarshan Jadhav, Sulekha Talwalkar, Ankush Chaudhari, Umesh Kamat, Amey Wagh, Siddharth Jadhav, Sonalee Kulkarni & Sai Tamhankar! Who could have thought that all these above mentioned actors could be working together in a Marathi film and that too a film which isn’t a romantic drama or a comedy but a hardcore stylistic political film! Well the director-writer pair of Sameer Vidwans-Kshitij Patwardhan along with the backing of Zee Studios has made this possible with their new film ‘Dhurala‘!
Currently in a completely chaotic world of politics in Maharashtra a film like ‘Dhurala’ makes more sense than ever! However it will be interesting to see what the pair of Vidwans-Patwardhan contribute to this genre. So far filmmakers in Marathi have mostly sticked to their comfort zones, i.e artists from Mumbai-Pune have hardly focused on rural backdrops in their films, similarly filmmakers coming from rural parts haven’t tried stories set in the urban backdrop much.
But with ‘Dhurala’ Vidwans-Patwardhan have focused on rural politics! From the teaser of the film one can make out that this will be a stylistic commercial political drama about the competition and the games people play in politics! It will be interesting to see how the audiences react to it when they are already much entertained by the current political scenario of our state! ‘Dhurala’ releases in theatres on 3rd of Jan, 2020!
