Posted: November 5, 2012 in Regional

Doghi (Two Sisters) is a moving 1995 Marathi film which exposes hypocrisy, superstition and exploitation in the lives of the marginalized in society. Two sisters, Gauri and Krishna, share a deep bond between them till Gauri’s marriage is fixed. Misfortune befalls Gauri and her family as the car in which the bridegroom and his family were travelling meets with an accident, & gets killed. The villagers cast aspersion on Gauri and her family, and equates Gauri with evil. She leaves village for Bombay with her uncle who puts her in the world’s oldest profession. Gauri begins sending money back to her family in the village, and the family starts seeing better days. When Krishna’s marriage is fixed with a social activist & Gauri comes home for the marriage, she is shun by her mother (Uttara Baonkar) and other relatives. The film, sad in its tone throughout, ends on a positive note. It is directed by Sumitra Bhave & Sunil Sukhtankar and stars Sadashiv Amrapurkar, Sonali Kulkarni, Uttara Baokar, Renuka Daftardar & Suryakant Mandre.
