Mumbai: ABP Studios’ co-produced Marathi feature film "Karkhanisanchi Waari" (Ashes on a Road Trip) will stream exclusively on SonyLIV, 10 December onwards.

Previously, the film was invited to prestigious screenings in New York, Los Angeles, Shanghai, Toronto, Stuttgart, and London after receiving praise and acclaim from international film critics. It won an award as one of the best five films at the Tokyo International Film Festival. The film was also a part of the Indian Panorama section of the 51st edition of the International Film Festival of India (IFFI), held in Goa on 23 January.

The film features an ensemble cast including Dr Mohan Agashe, Amey Wagh, Mrunmayee Deshpande, Geetanjali Kulkarni, Vandana Gupte, Shubhangi Gokhale, Pradeep Velankar and Pradeep Joshi. "The purpose behind any film shouldn’t only be entertainment, it should make you think or ponder upon situations around you and that’s what this film does in a brilliant way,” said Dr Agashe at the premiere of the film.

The film, directed by Mangesh Joshi, is a funny, heartfelt story about a dysfunctional ‘last joint family of Pune,’ which takes a comic look at death. The film's plot is crammed into a Maruti Omni on a road trip from Pune to Pandharpur to fulfill the last wishes of the family’s beloved patriarch.

"All the characters in the film are relatable to all age groups. Viewers can easily relate to the situations in the film with their day-to-day conflicts amongst families,” said actor Amey Wagh.

The film is produced by Archana Borhade (Nine Archers Picture Company) and co-produced by Zulfia Waris (ABP Studios).
