THIRUVANANTHAPURAM: Divorce is a social issue and hence dealt with more frequently in films these days, said Neena Kulkarni, noted actor and producer of the Marathi film Shevri.
Her debut production, Shevri, which in English means a wisp of cotton, is about a working woman who shares a rented flat in Mumbai.
"The film focuses on a single night the protagonist is forced to spend on the streets. As she wanders the deserted roads, she recalls her relationships, her estranged husband, teenaged son staying with her mother, her boss, her colleague and her roommate," said Ms. Kulkarni, who has over two-and-a-half decades of experience in theatre, films and television.
The film concludes with a visibly confident protagonist coming to terms with her lot.
The film is directed by Gajendra Ahire, a new generation filmmaker with 11 films in Marathi to his credit. His debut movie Not only Mrs Raut won him the national award for direction.
The face-to face programme was also attended by filmmakers Joshi Joseph, Jasimine Dullal and Lal Jose.

Apart from acting, Mita is also actively involved in social work. She has worked with children in remand homes and started a theatre group with them.
Her film 'Summer Moon' a 40 min. insight into her work with these girls is a highlight in her career.
In 'Shevri', Mita plays a non-conformist , intelligent woman. Her role is important in the film because it is an anti-thesis of Vidya Barve's character.

Like a wisp of Cotton blown in different directions the one and a half hr. long marathi movie 'Shevri' tackles the plight of a woman. who is forced to come to terms with her life after a painful divorce. Neena Kulkarni's excitment is quite evident as she doles out information about 'Shevri' through which she takes a plunge into production. "The movie does not deal with any specific social issue. It's a movie that does not preach it makes the audience 'feel'. My movie presents incidents and leaves it to the viewers to react." says Kulkarni.
But ask her how this transition from being in front of the camera to behind the camera is? "Well my daughter Soha and I handled the production our selves. We did not hire a production manager.I feel when you get into something for the first time, you should get the experience yourself. We wanted to learn the ropes from the start." adds the confident Kulkarni.
Soha a student of J.J. Institute, has done the costumes for 'Shevri'.
From playing the doting mother on silver screen and now donning the hat of a producer, actress Neena Kulkarni has come a long way.
