Marathi film Ghaath to premiere at Berlin International Film Festival

The film is written and directed by Chhatrapal Ninawe


Marathi film Ghaath will be screened at the Berlin International Film Festival for its world premiere. The film festival is set to be held from February 16 to February 26.

Written and directed by Chhatrapal Ninawe, the film is a slow-burn thriller set on the fringes of India's Maoist-affected jungles. It revolves around the tense interplay between guerrillas, civilians and the police.

Ghaath features actors Jitendra Joshi, Milind Shinde, Suruchi Adarkar, Dhananjay Mandaokar and Janardan Kadam. Jitendra Joshi said, "Shooting on location in the jungles of central India was certainly difficult and challenging, but this incredible news makes it seem all worth it." He also noted that it is a great win for Berlin. 

It is produced by Shiladitya Bora's Platoon One Films and Manish Mundra's Drishyam Films. Director Chhatrapal said that Ghaath is about trust, betrayal and ambush. He further added that it is a thriller "which goes deep into the jungles and deeper into the psyche of its characters."

Interestingly, for the producers, Ghaath is the second outing after the 2017 Newton that screened at the Berlinale. Meanwhile, Ghaath is slated for a summer 2023 release.
