After getting recognition and making its marks at various film festivals Jai Tank's debut feature film MADHOLAL KEEP WALKING is all set for the release on 27th August. As we all know the very fact of life and how it brings the tragic factor time to time in our lives but we manage to tackle it. That's the main crux of the film which has been extraordinarily shown by Jai (director) in his debut film. Not only that, it's a film which is based on social theme and has larger than life characters who reflect the truth of the society.
This is a story of humanity. Madholal's simple life has modest dreams and usual challenges. The times were perfect. A supportive wife Kamla, loving daughters Sudha and Summi, a trusted neighbor Anwar and friendships like none other.
Each morning Madholal starts a journey with his inseparable comrades. An eclectic mix of buddies, witty peon Rajan, fastidious lawyer Varma, Beetle juice spewing stockbroker Jayesh, romantic young executive Satish and a youthful retire Joshi Kaka. They laugh with and at each other. Meeting only in the trains, squabbling and laughing all the way they pass the journey every day, till the tragedy strikes. One event blows it all into smithereens, shatters the very fabric of Madholal's life. Now will he gain his lost confidence, his happy times, friends...? All can be traced on 27th August.
Jai Tank says, "The film is a salute to the spirit of mankind and how the courage factor influences in our all walks of life to sustain and live a life which we dream for. It's a film which will be connected by a common people and their fight for survival in whatever they do. It's an unconventional film and not like any other Bollywood flick which has skin show and slapstick comedy."
