ZEE Network is known for its blockbuster Hindi movie acquisitions, so now get ready for a special Marathi movie hit.
ZEE Cinema has secured the movie rights to last year’s huge Marathi movie Shwaas. There has been quite a bit of interest in this Sandeep Sawant’s film after the small-budget venture won this year’s National Award for Best Feature Film and a nomination to Oscar.
Shwaas is a special film, as it’s popularity increased through word of mouth, unlike Hindi films, which thrive on publicity. It takes a sensitive, well-told story to get Marathi audiences into cinema halls. The movie is inspired by a case from the files of Pune-based eye surgeon Dr Shailesh Puntambekar. Noted actor and CO-producer of the movie Arun Nalavade plays a doting grandfather to the character played by Ashwin Chitale, who received the Best Child Actor award. Shwaas has only three characters?grandfather, grandson and doctor.
Watch Shwaas on ZEE Cinema on Monday 31st October at 13:00.
