Girlie talk
Smita Films and Production are soon releasing a Marathi feature film,Gharcha Abhyas that is based on social subject of importance of girl’s education. The film portrays partiality between girls and boys and the problems arising out of that. The story is based on a life of a girl and a boy (siblings) living in a small village. The boy has been pampered with all type of facilities as well as good education. On the contrary the girl’s education was neglected. The story moves on to show how the girl overcomes this situation. “The story is a commonplace one that could be seen in almost every poor family in villages and even the big cities. The girls are ignored,considering them as paraya dhan,so we thought of making a film on this very prevalent social menace in the society,” says Sumit Pofde,producer of the film. Shivaji Barve has directed the film while Smita Pofde has written the script and Raju More has given music to the film. Child artists Mitali Pofde and Rohan Gohad are the main leads along with Vijay Patwardhan,Jaggannath Naavgune,Aasawari. Swati Patil,Hemakshi Nikhar,and Dhananjay Amonkar.
