We are all aware that Marathi films have always received step motherly treatment from Multiplex owners, when it comes to offering screens. In the past we have seen many protests and thereafter it seemed that the matter was sorted out. But, the producers of ‘Ghuma‘ are facing the problem from Multiplex owners now. The film which was all set for release on 29th September 2017 is not finding response from Multiplex owners. Incidentally, two more Marathi films, namely ‘Zindagi Viraat ‘ and ‘Baapjanma‘ are also releasing on the same day. But, they have not disclosed the theatres yet, in the advertisement displayed in newspapers today.
Film ‘Ghuma‘ is based on important social issue faced by Marathi schools in rural areas, where English medium schools are making inroads. As a result, the attendance in these Marathi schools is coming down and some of the schools are on the verge of closure. But, this film directed by Mahesh Kale is not getting response from Multiplexes to release their film on 29th September 2017. Therefore the producers of this film Madan Aadhav, Adinath Dhangude, Sarang Baraskar & Santosh Ingale knocked the doors of Matoshree yesterday, to inform Shiv Sena Chief Uddhav Thackeray about the injustice faced by their film from Multiplex owners.
After hearing their plight, Mr. Thackeray has assured them justice. This clearly indicates that Shiv Sena will take up this issue faced by Marathi films and adamant attitude by Multiplex owners, who are supposed to give priority to Marathi films. present on the occasion were other Shiv Sena leaders Minister Ramdas Kadam, MP Anil Desai, MLA’s from Parner & Ahmednagar Vijayrao Auti & Anilbhaiya Rathod. Further details will be known in next two days.
