“KatyarKaljatGhusali,” a 2015 Indian Marathi-language epic musical drama, brings to life the timeless tale originating from the eponymous play. Directed by Subodh Bhave, the film stars Sachin Pilgaonkar, Shankar Mahadevan, and marks Bhave’s directorial debut, alongside Mahadevan’s theatrical acting debut. Rooted in the legacy of Purushottam Darvhekar’s 1967 play, which featured Hindustani classical vocalist Vasantrao Deshpande, the film carries forward the narrative with Rahul Deshpande and singer Mahesh Kale portraying the central characters in its 2010 revival. Shankar–Ehsaan–Loy’s enchanting music, echoing Jitendra Abhisheki’s compositions, enriches the cinematic experience. The film’s selection for the 46th International Film Festival of India in Goa underscores its artistic merit, further emphasized by its consideration for the UNESCO Fellini medal, affirming its cultural significance on a global scale.
