Actress Priyanka Chopra’s Marathi film production Ventilator is set to premiere at the upcoming MAMI Mumbai Film Festival. Now in its 18th edition, the fest will celebrate Marathi cinema with the launch of its new segment Marathi Talkies. The programme will showcase Marathi films through the day at PVR, Lower Parel on October 25, 2016. The film line-up has been curated by Marathi film critic Amol Parchure. Ventilator is written and directed by Ferrari ki Sawaari-fame-director Rajesh Mapuskar. Mapuskar said in a statement: “I am glad that MAMI has provided this new platform for Marathi cinema and they are hosting the world premiere of Ventilator.” The film revolves around an ailing senior member of a family who is being put on the ventilator just days before the Ganpati festival leading to varied degrees of speculation and panic amongst the large clan he belongs to. Other films to be showcased this year at Marathi Talkies are Vakratunda Mahakaya, Bioscope and Rajwade and Sons.
