Mangesh hadawale gets lucky after 41 tries

For 26-year-old director Mangesh Hadawale, it was a difficult journey to make his film Tingya, which made its debut at the 38th IFFI to acclaim.

The debutant director’s path had several hurdles, foremost being his insistence that the film be narrated in his mothertongue – Marathi.

Tingya is a sensitive tale about a boy and his love for his bull, set against the politically charged background of farmers’ suicides and the life in rural Maharasthra.

The film is part-biographical.

"I have also gone through the same motions as Tingya, “says the first-time director.

Hadawale adds, “It’s as much a commentary on farmers as well as about the love for a boy for his bull whom he considers it to be his friend.”
