Marathi films have already made their mark at the national as well as international levels. A noteworthy addition to this was made recently by promising Marathi writer-director Ashish Ningurkar with his short films ‘Niyam’ and ‘Kulupband’, which will be screened in Toronto, Canada thanks to an initiative taken by ‘World Globe’, an organization founded by a renowned industrialist Fredrie Regon. The online premiere of the films will be followed by a Webinar to discuss various aspects of these artistic endeavors.
Both these short films have been conceived, scripted, shot and directed by Ashish Ningurkar himself. Mrs. Kiran Ningurkar has produced them under ‘Kavya Dream Movies’. The star cast of the films includes Ashok Ningurgar, Jayshree Ningurgar, Swaroop Kasar and Anurag Ningurgar. Abhishek Lagas has edited the films. The shooting of the films was done indoors during the lockdown period.
The films make an emotional appeal to the viewers to follow the rules to cope with the Corona pandemic. Through them the director wants to pass on a pertinent message that human life is precious and a little haste will snatch it from us and it is better to stay away from others for the time being. Ashish Ningurkar and his team have been widely congratulated for this outstanding achievement. This success story of a youngster from rural background is indeed inspiring for every Indian.
