Ventilator is a 2016 Indian Marathi language comedy-drama film written and directed by Rajesh Mapuskar and produced by Priyanka Chopra.The film features an ensemble cast of more than 100 actors, including Ashutosh Gowariker, Jitendra Joshi, Sulabha Arya and Sukanya Kulkarni Mone. It tells the story of the Kamerkar family, whose eldest and most beloved member goes into a coma and is put on a medical ventilator a few days before the Ganesh Chaturthi festival celebrations.

Mapuskar conceived the film after one of his family members was hospitalised and put on a ventilator; he started writing the script after noting the reaction of his family members, trying to treat the difficult situation with humour. On its completion, he approached several producers, who were sceptical and tried to discourage him from making it in Marathi. Later, Chopra accepted it to produce under her production company Purple Pebble Pictures.

The film was released on 4 November 2016 in Maharastra and several other cities in India. Ventilator received widespread critical acclaim, garnering praise for its direction, screenplay, cast performances, music and its treatment of humour and emotion. Made on a small budget of 35 million (US$550,000), the film was a commercial success, earning 250 million (US$4 million) at the box office. As of October 2017, Ventilator is the 10th highest-grossing Marathi film of all time.

Ventilator won three awards at the 64th National Film Awards; Best Director for Mapuskar, Best Editing and Best Sound Mixing. The film was nominated in 16 categories at the 2017 Filmfare Marathi Awards; including Best Film, Best Director for Mapuskar, Best Actor for Joshi, Best Supportng Actor for Gowariker and Best Supporting Actress for Kulkarni. It won five categories, including Best Screenplay. The movie was remade in Gujarati in 2018 as Ventilator.

Plot[edit]

Every year, the Kamerkar family assembles in their ancestral village to celebrate the Ganesh Chaturthi festival. Three days before the festival, a doyen of the family—the much-loved and respected Gajanan Karmerkar who is fondly known as Gajju Kaka—goes into a coma. He is put on life support—a medical ventilator—in a Mumbai hospital. Gajanan's nephew, Raja Kamerkar, a popular Bollywood film director, receives this news from his father during a screening of his film starring Priyanka Chopra, who suggests Raja leave for the hospital. Gajju Kaka has been very kind to Raja, who is having some issues with his own father. On his way to the hospital, Raja tells everyone, including the family in the village. Although his relatives are worried about Gajju Kaka, they are also worried about the upcoming festivities. Gajju Kaka's death during the festival would mean a period of mourning, spoiling their festive plans.

All of the family members and their neighbours visit Gajju Kaka in the hospital, praying to Lord Ganesha for his quick recovery. Gajanan's wife Manda and their son Prasanna are happy to see Raja at the hospital, while others are excited about Raja's upcoming film and his popularity. Raja meets everyone in the hospital, most of whom are occupied with concerns other than Gajju Kaka's health. Raja is amused by the chaos around the family members and their different attitudes to the situation. Even in this difficult time, Prasanna is busy with political endevours and his plans to win a competition to prove himself to his boss. Meanwhile Pritam, Prassana's and Raja's cousin from the village, is on his way with his uncle (Gajanan's older, unmarried brother), his mother, father, wife and other relatives.

Prasanna has a dysfunctional relation with his father Gajanan, of which all the family members are aware. On the contrary, Prasanna's sister Sarika shares a deep relationship with their father. Manda reminds Prasanna that Gajanan had always loved him and that Prassana should have been there for him. Prasanna's boss dismisses him and gives his job to his assistant. The family from the village arrives; they learn about the ventilator and are shocked to know that he will always depend upon it. Prasanna decides to keep Gajanan on the ventilator until the following afternoon and the family understands. Raja, who had problems with his own father, asks Prasanna to go to Gajanan's ward and see him for the last time. Prasanna reveals his anger towards his father and how he could not be like "his favourite Raja", and that Gajanan never understood him and overlooked him in favour of his sister Sarika.

The next day, Raja and Prasanna's cousin Lata arrives from the United States with her husband and their young son. The child has drawn a family tree, which he shows to the whole family. He asks Prasanna about his father; Prasanna tells the child his father never loved him. After overhearing this, Raja's father and Gajanan's brother remind Prasanna about his father's difficulties after Prasanna was born with a thin nostril, and contary to Prasanna's belief, how much Gajanan loved him. This changes Prassana's mind; he rushes to the ward to ask the doctors to keep his father on the ventilator as he makes peace with Gajanan. He rejoins his mother and sister, and they all hug each other. This gives confidence to Raja, who tries to bury his misunderstanding with his own father. While still on the ventilator, Gajanan is seen smiling, alluding to his recovery.

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Ventilator was directed by Rajesh Mapuskar and produced by Priyanka Chopra under her production company Purple Pebble Pictures.[3] Chopra's mother Madhu Chopra also served as producer on the film and looked after its production. It was distributed by Zee Studios.[4]

Mapuskar had the idea for the film when a family member was hospitalised and put on a medical ventilator. According to the director, the word "ventilator" became a part of his daily life and he began to follow the stories of the people undergoing medical treatment.[3] In an interview with Scroll.in, Mapuskar recalled how relatives of people who were under medical treatment made efforts "to treat life with humour in the face of death. That’s how the story was born in my mind, and I began to write it".[3] After completing the script, he approached several filmmakers, who thought it was "a great script" but were sceptical of producing it. He revealed that these people tried to discourage him from making it in Marathi, since his debut film Ferrari Ki Sawaari (2013) was in Hindi.[3] They thought going from Hindi to Marathi would be a downgrade. However, he was confident the film would be a Marathi production. He said "It makes economic sense to make the film in Marathi, where better scripts are accepted and projects are wrapped up in record time".[3]

At the same time, Priyanka Chopra set up Purple Pebble Pictures and was looking for content-driven, regional cinema scripts. After reading the script, Chopra was impressed and immediately agreed to produce the film under her production company.[3] She said, "It's one single moment that defines the best of the film. It is funny, ironical and a deeply moving tale that will leave you laughing and crying. I am very lucky to have such a talented collection of actors coming together for my debut Marathi production."[4] Rajesh Mapuskar believed that having Chopra as producer helped to create a larger market for the film.[3] When the director approached Ashutosh Gowariker with the script, he assumed Mapuskar wanted him to produce the film. However, despite liking the script, he declined after learning that he wanted Gowariker to act. Gowariker, who had last acted in a film 18 years earlier, was shocked at the idea of returning to acting.[5] He was also busy with his own directorial venture. After six months, Rajesh Mapuskar approached him again; Gowariker insisted on an audition so he could be rejected. He finally agreed after getting a phone call from Chopra, who insisted he do the film.[5]

Principal photography began on 10 February 2016 in Mumbai.[6][7] Sonal Kharade designed the costumes for the entire cast, Savita Singh handled the cinematography and Nikhil S. Kovale was in charge of the art direction. Filming of the hospital scenes began in May 2016; most of the film was shot in the Kurla's Kohinoor Hospital, where a daycare unit was converted into an ICU.[8] Chopra filmed her cameo appearance and the music video for "Baba" in a three-day schedule which was completed on 2 July 2016.[9] The filming was completed in 34 days.[1] Rameshwar S. Bhagat edited the film while Alok De did the sound mixing.[10]

The first poster of the film was unveiled by Priyanka Chopra on 31 August 2016 on her Instagram account.[18] Between 7 October 2016 to 11 October 2016, two teaser trailers—which were deemed "promising" and "interesting" by the media—were released.[19][20] Following the teasers, a three-minute-long trailer was released on 18 October 2016; this was well-received by the media and audiences, with NDTV noting the trailer "promises both laugh-out-loud moments and also instances that move you".[21][4][22] The music video of "Baba" was used to promote the film.[23]

Ventilator premiered at the 18th Mumbai Film Festival on 24 October 2016.[24] Made on a small budget of 35 million (US$550,000), Ventilator was released on 4 November 2016 in Maharashtra, and accompanied by English subtitles in several other cities including Gujarat, Goa, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh and Telangana.[1][25][26] It opened to a positive response at the box office, did good business in its first weekend and continues to perform well in its first week.[27] The film continued to do well in its second weekend; revenues held up well despite the Indian government's surprise currency demonitisation and other big-budget Bollywood and regional films.[27] The film was a commercial success, earning 250 million (US$4 million) at the box office.[2] As of October 2017, Ventilator is the 10th highest-grossing Marathi film of all time.[28]

Distributed by Everest Entertainment, it was released on DVD on 26 April 2017 in all regions in a single-disc pack.[29] A VCD version was released at the same time.[30] The film's Blu-ray version was released on 6 June 2017.[31] The world television premiere occurred on 29 January 2017 on Zee Marathi.[32]

Critical reception[edit]

Ventilator has received widespread critical acclaim from critics.[33] Rachit Gupta of Filmfare gave it 4 stars out of 5, calling it an "achievement in handling extended ensemble casts and genuine human emotions with great effect", and said it "serves up humour, anger, hatred, envy, sorrow, regret and myriad human emotions with flawless impact. You’ll laugh and cry through this film at the drop of many a hat."[34] Gupta added, "Ventilator is one of the most honest and emotional films of the year. It's a Marathi film worth treasuring. It's an Indian film worth celebrating."[34] ABP Majha also gave the film a rating of 4 stars out of 5, praising the film's direction, writing, casting, music and sound design.[35]

Mihir Bhanage, writing for The Times of India, also gave the film 4 stars out of 5 and wrote, "The list of must-watch Marathi films of recent times just registered an addition in the form of 'Ventilator'. This Priyanka Chopra production is a beautiful journey of relationships, emotions, misunderstandings and priorities that are a part of many families."[36] Hemant Waje of Rediff.com gave the film 3.5 out of 5, calling it "a refreshing family drama" and saying the characterisation is its biggest strength: "Rajesh Mapuskar has made sure that he uniquely introduces each and every character and their relationship, forming a strong base for the film. He allows each one to express themselves."[37]

Kunal Guha of Mumbai Mirror gave a rating of 3.5 stars out of 5 and said that Mapuskar handled the film carefully while trying his best to contain the story and characters from stretching the limits of exaggeration: "While he largely succeeds, he should be credited for elaborately examining the unexpressed emotions in relationships—and doing so amidst the cacophony of various other parallel tracks—without allowing either to shadow the other."[38] He also praised the performances, particularly that of Joshi, whom he said "furnishes his character's state of mind immaculately".[38] R. M. Vijayakar from India-West awarded the film 4 stars out of 5 and wrote that "with its subtle as well as biting satire", the film "grabs your emotional plexus and makes you love and cherish life and your loved ones all over again".[39] Vijayakar praised Mapuskar's "masterly control of his script", and said that despite "the crackling undercurrent of humor", the film was a tearjerker and that "there will be lumps in the throat and tears in the eyes of those susceptible".[39]

Hindustan Times writer Gulshankumar Wankar gave a rating of 3.5 stars out of 5, calling it "a delightful, well-written family drama" in which the director "successfully conveys his message about a father-son bond without going over the top" and "takes you inside the hospital and makes you sit with each character".[40] Wankar also praised the performance of the cast, calling them "remarkable", and saying "Sukanya Kulkarni Mone and Jitendra Joshi play their characters of Gaju kaka’s children to perfection".[40] A critic from the Indo-Asian News Service gave the film 3.5 stars and termed it a "heart warming saga" while writing, "we get another Marathi film of deep emotional worth, which challenges our long standing notions of the joint family system without the crutches of cynicism and self-loathing".[41] Film critic Prachi Pinglay-Plumber of Outlook gave the film a rating of 3 out of 4, praising the open ending, and writing, "The premise lends itself beautifully to chaos, comedy and dollops of emotion ... you have a film that has all of the above boxes ticked".[42]
