UFCo.(Upstage Film Company) & NSD Films Presentation

Mumbai, Maharashtra, India
Vidya Barve, is a divorced, working woman,sharing a rented flat with a room mate in Mumbai. Our film deals with one single night which Vidya is forced to spend on the streets of this city.... As she ambles on the deserted roads waiting for morning, she's frightened, lonely, angry, confused. She keeps recalling her relationships as they stand today- Her estranged husband, her teenaged son staying with her mother in small town Nasik, her boss, her colleague, her room mate. Alternating between her encounters during this night and her past, the film finally sees a visibly confident Vidya coming to terms with her lot. And that is when dawn breaks... The title Shevri suggests an insignificant wisp of cotton, which is Vidya. An ordinary woman with ordinary dreams, leading a life which is now out of the ordinary for her. Her coming to terms with her state today and becoming present to her life is what gives an essence to the film. “Shevri is an interesting film because of its innovative and intelligent cinematic narration by effective use of flashbacks” - Jury comment at the Pune International Film Festival 2007 where it won the best International Marathi Film Award.

Indian Express-Pune 22nd March'06
Double ROLE!!!
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.
