Which are reportedly most successful Marathi entertainers over the past year or so?
A feature film called "Katyar Kaljat Ghusali" (कट्यार काळजात घुसली) based on the popular play of the same name, first staged in 1967 and another feature "Natasamrat: Asa Nat Hone Nahi" (नटसम्राट: असा नट होणे नाही) based on another popular play of the same name (नटसम्राट) first staged in 1970.
Both the films don't reinterpret the almost 50-year old original plays but just re-present them.
I strongly believe both the movies are towering examples of the zest of middle-class, urban, young and old Marathi speaking people for nostalgia (स्मरणरंजन).
Loksatta (लोकसत्ता) dated January 24 2016 reported the books that had most demand during the Akhil Bhartiya Marathi Sahitya Sammelan (अखिल भारतीय मराठी साहित्य संमेलन) held in the same month.
Four of the top five books were first published at least forty years ago.
