MUMBAI: After receiving a hugely positive response on its first regional title Firebrand, Netflix today launched the trailer of its upcoming licensed original Marathi film, 15 August. Produced by veteran Bollywood actor Madhuri Dixit Nene and her husband, Dr. Shriram Nene, the film is all set to release on the service across 190 countries on March 29, 2019.

Set in a Mumbai chawl, the film follows the course of a series of zany mishaps that occur on a single day, as its residents prepare for the Independence Day flag-hoisting ceremony. The film revolves around how the course of the day unfolds on a not-so-typical Independence Day - when a lover, in his quest to win over his beloved, ends up creating complete mayhem, compelling all the residents to unite and help him out of his mess. The film beautifully highlights what independence, love, and affection mean to the residents of the colony. This slice-of-life Marathi film delves into the real struggles of the Indian urban middle-class India and, in a soaring climax, shows us how love ultimately sets us free.

On donning the producer’s hat, Madhuri Dixit Nene says, “There’s always been a part of me that wanted to create and back meaningful films, and there couldn’t be a better starting point for me than 15 August. This is an endearing, relatable story that has been brought to life beautifully by the talented Swapnaneel Jayakar and actors Rahul Pethe, Mrunmayee Deshpande, and Adinath Kothare.”
