The trailer for the upcoming Marathi film What About Savarkar? has been released. Directed by Nitin Gawde and Rupesh Katare, the film’s story revolves around Abhiman Marathe, who works as an executive officer in an MNC in Mumbai. The 25-year-old, who is earning big bucks, falls in love with his colleague Suniti Singh, a beautiful Manipuri girl.
However, life takes a 180 degree turn for Abhiman when he hears a corrupt and dishonest cabinet minister disrespecting India’s most revered freedom fighter Veer Savarkar. The young patriot sets out to teach the politician a lesson but is deterred by his family, friends, and office colleagues. In order to accomplish his mission, he also resigns from his high paying job. In his fight against the corrupt leader, he is joined by a downtrodden youth Suryakant Pawar, his girlfriend Suniti, and another young man from Konkan, Kranti Kamble. Later, when he starts using social media to spread awareness about his mission, he receives an overwhelming response from the youth of the nation, which in turn gives him huge media coverage that enables him to reach out to a much wider audience.
Abhiman’s journey to fight for Savarkar’s honour starts in Mumbai and concludes in New Delhi. The film has been shot at various Indian cities and the makers have been able to capture the scenic beauty of Konkan, Manipur, Delhi, and Punjab successfully.
Courtesy of its intriguing storyline, hard-hitting dialogues, melodious music, and power packed performances, What About Savarkar? is already creating waves and is all set to hit the theaters on April 17. Produced by Atul Parab, the film is being presented by Rohit K. Shetty and stars Sharad Ponkshe, Avinash Narkar, Vivek Lagu, Atul Todankar, Shreekant Bhide and Sara Shravan in the lead roles.
