Mukta A2 Cinemas Hosts Premier Of Marathi Sports Drama Vijeta In Mumbai
Mukta A2 Cinemas, one of India’s fastest growing cinema chains, recently hosted the premier of Marathi film ‘Vijeta’ at Suncity Mukta A2 Cinemas, Vile Parle, Mumbai. Debuting on the 12th of March, the much-anticipated drama is the fourth Marathi film to be presented under the banner of Mukta Arts Ltd., the production house of legendary filmmaker Subhash Ghai. The special show was held in lieu of a large premier, which was cancelled as a precaution against the spread of coronavirus.
As such, the occasion was a star-studded affair that saw the entirety of the film’s cast and crew make an appearance. The cast members in attendance included stalwarts of Marathi cinema such as Subodh Bhave, Pooja Sawant, Sushant Shela, Pritam Kagne, Mansi Kulkarni, Madhav Deochake, Tanvi Kishore, Devendra Chougule, Dipti Dhotre, Krutika Tulaskar, and Gaurish Shipurkar. Representing the crew were director Amol Shetge, producer Rahul Puri, and co-producer Suresh Pai, in addition to Chairman of Mukta Arts Ltd. and presenter of the film Subhash Ghai himself.
Speaking at the occasion, Rahul Puri, Managing Director at Mukta A2 Cinemas, said, “Vijeta is a film that speaks to the athlete in all of us. A story of courage, hope, and triumph under adversity, it imparts a universal message that will be understood by everyone. We at Mukta A2 Cinemas are proud to have hosted the premier of a film featuring some of Marathi cinema’s finest talents, and we are confident that the public’s response to the themes and messages put forth will be phenomenal.”
The film follows the story of Soumitra (played by Subodh Bhave), a mind coach appointed by the Maharashtra government following the state’s poor showing at the National Games in Kerala. Along the way, the audience is also introduced to Nalini (Pooja Sawant), a triathlon athlete who is great at cycling but struggles with running and swimming, and Sunanda (Pritam Kagne), a runner battling a tragedy in her past. By helping these athletes overcome their personal hurdles, Soumitra hopes to make them winners in the battlefields of their minds, while stopping the demons of his own tormented past from destroying him.
