''Manthan'', a Marathi film on domestic violence starring Padmini Kolhapure and Milind Gunaji, will hit the marquee on October 21.
Music of the film was released by PWD minister Chhagan Bhujbal at the Siddhivinayak temple here on last Saturday. Mr Bhujbal is an avid film buff who himself had
produced a couple of Marathi films several years ago.
Manthan is directed by Dr Mrinalini Patil, daughter of Union Minister of state for parliamentary affairs Suryakanta Patil, and produced by her actor-husband Amitabh Dayal.
He had starred in ''Kagar'', a Hindi film produced by his wife and directed by N. Chandra.
Padmini said she was satisfied the way her role had shaped up.
''It is always said Marathi cinema does not have an audience in present times. But the success of my first Marathi film Chimni Pakhara had given me confidence to take up
good scripts and mature subjects. I am confident this film , too, will do well.'' Dr Mrinalini said Manthan handles a social issue and the treatment and narration suits the
commercial mainstream. Manthan is not a regional film because the subject is universal and the casting is multi-lingual, she added.
Padmini plays protagonist Anjali Deshpande, an educated person who has balanced views yet strong convictions. Her's is a journey from a happy family to taking up a job,
tackling problems of people at work with her own life going haywire, bringing a total change in her outlook towards life.
The lyrics are penned by noted Marathi poet Pravin Davne.
Dr Mrinalini said the music carries the storyline forward and the songs are like musical scenes displaying strong emotional trauma.
