Srikant Pandit tries to figure out why she had received inheritance from Kamat, many hears after the music classes had ended, subsequently makes a discovery. Astitva won the National Film Award for Best Feature Film in Marathi in the year 2000. Astitva encompasses issues such as male chauvinism, extramarital affairs, spousal abuse, it is about a woman trying to find an identity outside her marriage. It is 1997. Malhar Kamat, an old musician and music teacher, is dying, he prepares his will where he leaves his entire jaydad — comprising a haveli, 1.5 acres of land, 1,400 grams of gold and 800,000 rupees — to Aditi Shrikant Pandit. Upon his death two years the will is delivered to Aditi; when the will reaches Aditi in Pune, she is in the midst of an impromptu party occasioned by the arrival of Dr. Ravi Bapat and his wife Meghna.
Ravi is a close friend of Aditi's husband, Shrikant Pandit. Aditi and Shrikant's only child, Aniket introduces his girlfriend and would-be wife Revati to everyone at the party. Shrikant opens the certified package that contains the will though it is addressed to Aditi, much to Meghna's chagrin and Ravi's surprise. Shrikant is intrigued and refers to his diaries from 25 years ago, in which he has chronicled events from his daily life, he realises that Aditi could not have been pregnant from him at that time, because he was travelling on work. He shows her the diary, confronts her with the facts, demands an explanation. In a flashback, Shrikant is an up-and-coming star at a firm, seeking to break out onto his own, his work keeps him traveling constantly. This leaves his newlywed wife Aditi frustrated; when she asks him to let her work someplace, he takes it as an insult and rebuffs her saying no woman in his family has worked outside the home and that he earns enough for them to live comfortably.
He suggests. The music teacher is Malhar Kamat. Shrikant continues his unending travels all over the world, although he makes it clear to Malhar that music will not be anything more than a hobby for Aditi. Aditi's sister Sudha and her husband come to live with Aditi, their constant lovemaking further deepens Aditi's feelings of abandonment. And one spring afternoon, as Malhar breaks into his new ghazal in the rain, Aditi's resolve is broken under the influence of the season. Malhar returns a couple of days and Aditi asks him to leave stating she loves only Shrikant. Aditi has missed a period. Sudha advises her to do something; when Shrikant returns, Aditi tries to tell him the truth about her pregnancy. But Shrikant is doubly elated, having won the first major contract for his own firm and, hearing of his imminent fatherhood, breaks out into celebrations without letting Aditi complete her story; as the story comes back to present time, Shrikant punishes Aditi by making her tell the truth in front of Aniket and Meghna.
Meghna loathes Shrikant, since she suffered spousal abuse from her drunkard husband before divorcing him and marrying Ravi. Aniket is disgusted with his mother after knowing the truth of his existence. Ravi confronts Shrikant stating Shrikant committed sins many times if he thinks and states the one moment of weakness of Aditi as sin. Shrikant refuses to accept it stating he is a man and he doesn't bring any such child home. Shrikant decides that he will live with Aditi, but any spousal relationship between them will not exist. After Revati knows the truth, she breaks the engagement, not because of the truth, but because she realizes that Aniket is no different than the man whom he considered his father till now. Meghna decides to take Aditi to Goa with her, and before leaving the house she demands her son's presences to hear her. She states, she questions. And she reminds Shrikant the fact that they didn't have any other children which might be due to Shrikant,but to she had always loved him in spite of bearing no child with him.
And how she could have been made responsible for that too if she didn't have child. Revati enters the house and gives her new generation views to Aniket stating he is alive as his mother didn't decide otherwise. Aditi walks out of the house with Revati; the movie ends with Revati and Aditi walking out the house and on the road, whilst Shri and Aniket stand in the doorway, watching them go. The denouement captures the essence of astitva; the role of lead actress was first offered to Madhuri Dixit, a leading lady of her times, when she rejected the offer, it went to Tabu, who received an important film of her acting career. Tabu as Aditi Pandit Sachin Khedekar as Shrikant Pandit Ravindra Mankani as Ravi Smita Jaykar as Meghna Mohnish Bahl as Malhar Kamat Sunil Barve as Aniket Namrata Shirodkar as Revati Gulfam Khan as Asma Parveen "Chal Chal Mere Sang Sang" - Sukhwinder Singh "Gaana Mere Bas Ki Baat Nahin" - Sadhana Sargam, Shankar Mahadevan "Gaana Mere Bas Ki Baat Nahin v2" - Sadhana Sargam, Shankar Mahadevan "Kitne Kisse Hain Tere Mere" - hema Sardesai "Main Thi Main Hoon" - Kavita Krishnam
The fourth wall is a performance convention in which an invisible, imagined wall separates actors from the audience. While the audience can see through this "wall", the convention assumes, the actors act as if they cannot. From the 16th century onwards, the rise of illusionism in staging practices, which culminated in the realism and naturalism of the theatre of the 19th century, led to the development of the fourth wall concept; the metaphor suggests a relationship to the mise-en-scène behind a proscenium arch. When a scene is set indoors and three of the walls of its room are presented onstage, in what is known as a box set, the "fourth" of them would run along the line dividing the room from the auditorium; the "fourth wall", though, is a theatrical convention, rather than of set design. The actors ignore the audience, focus their attention on the dramatic world, remain absorbed in its fiction, in a state that the theatre practitioner Konstantin Stanislavski called "public solitude". In this way, the fourth wall exists regardless of the presence of any actual walls in the set, or the physical arrangement of the theatre building or performance space, or the actors' distance from or proximity to the audience."Breaking the fourth wall" is any instance in which this performance convention, having been adopted more in the drama, is violated.
This can be done through either directly referencing the audience, the play as a play, or the characters' fictionality. The temporary suspension of the convention in this way draws attention to its use in the rest of the performance; this act of drawing attention to a play's performance conventions is metatheatrical. A similar effect of metareference is achieved when the performance convention of avoiding direct contact with the camera used by actors in a television drama or film, is temporarily suspended; the phrase "breaking the fourth wall" is used to describe such effects in those media. Breaking the fourth wall is possible in other media, such as video games and books; the concept is attributed to the philosopher and dramatist Denis Diderot. The term itself was used by Molière; the presence of the fourth wall is an established convention of modern realistic theatre, which has led some artists to draw direct attention to it for dramatic or comic effect when a boundary is "broken", when an actor or character addresses the audience directly.
Breaking the fourth wall is common in pantomime and children's theatre where, for example, a character might ask the children for help, as when Peter Pan appeals to the audience to applaud in an effort to revive the fading Tinker Bell. Many Shakespearian plays use this technique for comic effect; the acceptance of the transparency of the fourth wall is part of the suspension of disbelief between a work of fiction and an audience, allowing them to enjoy the fiction as though they were observing real events. Critic Vincent Canby described it in 1987 as "that invisible scrim that forever separates the audience from the stage"; the earliest recorded breaking of the fourth wall in serious cinema was in Mary MacLane's revolutionary 1918 silent film Men Who Have Made Love to Me, in which the enigmatic authoress - who portrays herself - interrupts the vignettes onscreen to address the audience directly. In 1918, in A Dog's Life, written and starring Charlie Chaplin, after finding a wallet with money in it, "The Tramp", Chaplin's most famous character, looks right at the audience with his signature eyebrow raised.
Oliver Hardy was one of the first notable examples of breaking the fourth wall in his films with Stan Laurel, when he would stare directly at the camera to seek sympathy from viewers. Groucho Marx spoke directly to the audience in Animal Crackers, Horse Feathers, in the film advising them to "go out to the lobby" during Chico Marx's piano interlude. Comedy films by Mel Brooks, Monty Python, Zucker and Zucker broke the fourth wall, such that with these films, "the fourth wall is so flimsy and so shattered that it might as well not exist", according to The A. V. Club. In Akira Kurosawa's 1957 adaptation of Gorky's The Lower Depths, the film abruptly ends with Kōji Mitsui breaking the fourth wall to utter a callous remark about a fellow slum dweller's suicide. By having Mitsui use the startling technique, Kurosawa not only stresses his character's victorious nihilism but suggests the film's theatrical origins. Breaking the fourth wall is an integral part of the ending of Alejandro Jodorowsky's 1973 film The Holy Mountain.
In the Mel Brooks film Blazing Saddles, the characters break the fourth wall. Woody Allen broke the fourth wall several times in his movie Annie Hall, as he explained, "because I felt many of the people in the audience had the same feelings and the same problems. I wanted to talk to them directly and confront them." His 1985 film The Purple Rose of Cairo features the breaking of the fourth wall as a central plot point. The John Hughes movie Ferris Bueller's Day Off, is another well-known fourth-wall-breaking movie. Bueller, played by Matthew Broderick turns to the camera without breaking character to tell his thought process or explain his reasoning. Another Chicago area fourth-wall-breaking film, High Fidelity, has John Cusack's character Rob intimately sharing his life struggles and confessions with the audience. Two more recent examples are the 2016 film Deadpool, in which it is used as a comic device between the main character and the audience and the 2017 film I, where Tonya Harding and the
