NDFF under its campaign WATCH CINEMA, organized screening of National Award Winner Marathi film ‘Kaasav‘ on Oct 7, 2018 at Noida. It was a great success in terms of providing an opportunity to film lovers to watch a beautiful & brilliantly made film.
The film, produced by Mohan Agashe and directed by Sumitra Bhave and Sunil Sukthankar deals with depression; which many of us, or our loved ones might be suffering from. The film depicts the journey of a character, from one state of mind, to the other…and in this process we get to know the reality and hollowness of our prsent social/family set up, our changing attitude, the essence of being human, the subtle Geeta gyaan and
how the life cycle of a Kaasav (means turtle in Marathi) we can relate with.
Actually the film talks about a turtle conservation programme, the turtle in the film’s title is largely metaphorical. It compares the mental shell of a patient of depression with that of a turtle and the way narrative travels is amazing. Visuals, dialogues direction force you to think why this film could not have been made in hindi….
