Set in the year 1992, against the backdrop of the finance reform policy that spiralled the Indian middle class into a tizzy of consumerism, reforming everything, including their relationships, Pune 52 is a heartbreaking love story blended with a edge of the seat thriller complete with femme fatales and corrupt officialdom where nothing is as it seems and there is a twist lurking around every corner. This crackling tale is a standard bearer showcasing the continuing resurgence of Marathi cinema.
