The first Marathi film that Madhuri couldn’t refuse, Bucket list completes one year today on May 25th, 2019.
It was a long wait for Marathi cinema to finally watch India’s favourite Marathi mulgi, Madhuri Dixit Nene, and Bucket List made it worth the wait for the fans, and how! Much credit goes to the impactful and engaging script that made it an easy decision. Now that the film completes one year since it was first screened on May 25th last year, let’s take a walk down the memory lane and reminiscence its takeaway!
Tejas Prabha Vijay Deoskar’s directorial debut, Bucket List essays a woman’s self-discovery, with Madhuri as the female protagonist. Her journey of self-discovery amidst a heart transplant, an untimely death, and an unfinished bucket list, makes for an engaging drama. The film also proves that language is never a barrier for an engaging script and storytelling. In one of the interviews Madhuri talks about how the script resonated with her own life at that time; her decision to take a break from her one true love, films, to investing time in raising her loving family. Perhaps the film’s success will encourage more A-listers to be a part of Marathi cinema and its legacy of over 100 years.
In her own words, Madhuri says,
“Bucket List is a journey of this woman who has completely lost and immersed herself in the upbringing of her family and in the process, she discovers her voice. It’s not that she’s unhappy in her life, it’s just that extra something that you need in your life to make it sparkle again. Bucket List and I would want every woman to feel the same way. They should have some time for themselves, some individuality, something that they can fall back on.”
