Vihir (Marathi: विहिर)[1] is a Marathi movie directed by Umesh Vinayak Kulkarni which will be released in March 2010 and was featured in Berlin film festival and Rotterdam International Film Festival 2010, Holland.

This is AB Corp Limited's first Marathi film.



A story of two adolescent boys Sameer and Nachiket (cousins who are best friends) standing on the crossroads of life... to choose between the life that leads to petty worldly small existence or the life of free existence that would let them spread their wings and soar high in open skies...

They play a game of hide and seek in a rather unusual way. Where one cousin hides in death and the other is looking for him in the life around him. . . . Samir's search leads him towards the experience of oneness where he can unite with Nachiket again!

The film is, with impeccably beautiful visual style, narrative subtlety with layers of philosophical complexity and yet accessible world for someone situated in other cultures.
