Marathi Film Award is a non-profit organization that seeks to spotlight Indian films that are of cultural, social, or spiritual significance.
It’s easy to forget that the Marathi people are a huge influence on Indian cinema, making up close to half of the total number of films released in the country in the last decade. So it’s no surprise that Marathi filmmaker Bhavan Manohar has made a name for himself with his films. Recently, he’s been making some really amazing films, both in Marathi and in Hindi.
Marathi was an early influence on Indian cinema, but the word “film” came to be used to describe the genre of film-making. It is no wonder that films such as “Uttar Pradesh,” “Tirthankar,” and “Nepal” were made in Hindi, and therefore were often known as “film” after the word itself.
For a long time Hindi films were thought of as a collection of Indian folk tales. But then a group of writers in the 1930s realized that a good story could be constructed out of the common elements of Indian culture. So it’s no surprise that Hindi films have been more than just folk tales. The first two films to be made in Hindi, Uttar Pradesh and Tirthankar, won the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in 1959.
One of the first Indian films to be made on celluloid, Marathi films were created specifically to entertain the masses. In fact, they’ve been compared to a form of popular music with folk songs and folk dances as its core. Marathi films are also the most popular Indian language films, with over 1.3 billion in India alone.
Marathi films are a fairly new genre of film that have become very popular in India. Since theyre new, it’s hard to tell what the biggest draws are, but marathi films seem to be mostly a vehicle for the director and the actor to try and make a mark. Many of these films are actually based on the stories of local people. Some of the most well-known Indian films are based on the lives of the people portrayed in them.
Indian cinema has always been a bit of a niche, so it’s not really surprising that there are still only a few Marathi films that have managed to find an audience large enough to be made into a major studio release (although there are some exceptions). Most of these films are based on Indian folk tales, so the filmmakers don’t care about the audiences, but they do want the story to be told in a way that the audience can relate to.
Marathi films tend to have a clear narrative that is developed further in the form of a story arc. Basically, they have a set of rules that set up the story and the characters. One could say that in Marathi cinema, the story is the movie, the characters are the audience, and the setting is the stage.
The story arc in Marathi is a sort of self-contained movie, where the audience is surrounded by a handful of actors who are all trained in the same areas of the film. One of the things that has been tried on Marathi films is to get the audience to the screen, so that they can see the characters, to the audience, and understand what is going on. The audience may see not just the characters, but the story itself.
Not everyone likes Marathi films. But if you like a story, try one with a story arc, and you will like it. Marathi movies have this weird, almost voyeuristic quality where you watch a bunch of people talking about their lives. You learn a lot about who they are, and who you want to be or what they’re like.
