A Marathi film is making waves after a gap of nearly five decades. "Shwaas" (A Breath), India's entry for the Oscars, has been winning a host of prizes and making its presence felt at the IFFI too.

It is the story of a seven-year-old child who faces the loss of both eyes and how his grandfather responds to the tragedy. Says its 39-year-old director Sandeep Sawant: "My main aim was to tell a story in a way that even a layman would understand and appreciate. It touches the spirit of all humanity."

Another Marathi film making news is "Not Only Mrs Raut". Critics are lauding it as the film that has "revived Marathi cinema" and brought urban audiences back to the cinema after two decades.

Following the tradition of Marathi cinema, writer-director Gajendra Ahire also writes the story, screenplay, dialogue and lyrics. This film looks at the exploitation of women in a patriarchal society by tackling concerns such as widowhood and rape.
