Lathe Joshi Marathi Movie Trailer

Set in Pune, Maharashtra, Lathe Joshi tells the tale of a skilled lathe worker who is left jobless  when his boss closes down his loss-making workshop. At home, Joshi is faced with a wife who is busy expanding her catering business, a son who runs an electronic repair shop from their personal premises and a mother who pledges to complete 500,000 chants using a mass-produced electronic mantra machine. Refusing to engage with a changing world of globalisation and automated production, he passively watches on as artisans such as himself fade into history.

Lathe Joshi is produced by Sonali Joshi and directed by Mangesh Joshi. The starcast of Lathe Joshi includes Chittaranjan Giri, Ashwini Giri, Seva Chauhan and Om Bhutkar. ‘Lathe Joshi’ will screened at the Jio MAMI 18th Mumbai Film Festival.
