The political situation of Maharashtra has been continuously in the news over the last two weeks or so, ever since the results of the assembly elections are out. Amidst such an atmosphere, the teaser of director Sameer Vidwans’ multi-starrer political drama titled Dhurala (2020) has emerged.

The film has a long list of known faces from the Marathi film industry that includes Prasad Oak, Ankush Chaudhari, Amey Wagh, Sai Tamhankar, Sonalee Kulkarni, Umesh Kamat, Siddharth Jadhav, Priyadarshan Jadhav and Alka Kubal. 

Going by the teaser, Dhurala revolves around the political situation of a small town in Maharashtra. The film seems to be about the rivalry or enmity between quite a few political parties. The teaser also makes it clear that every mainstream actor plays a confident person, except the one played by Tamhankar. Her character, which seem to be from a poorer section of the society, appears conscious of others. 

Despite politics being widely followed in the state of Maharashtra, Marathi cinema has hardly come up with films about politics over the last two decades. The era before that saw political dramas like Samna (1974) and Sinhasan (1980); both directed by Jabbar Patel. The few prominent films made in this genre in the last few years include Zenda (2010) and Classmates (2015). 

The lack of films in this genre coupled by the interesting teaser of Dhurala makes it an awaited film. The film will release on 3 January 2020. Watch the teaser below and let us know if you are keen to watch the film.
