 Marathi has a long tradition of art and literature. It can very easily be one of the strongest cultural movements in the world in terms of its richness and diversity. The credit has to go to those gigantic people who have contributed to this vibrant ethos. Uttunga is an effort to encompass these personalities in terms of their lives and achievements. Every Uttunga is based on the works of one of these amazing people. 

The first Uttunga was performed at Sharada Centre in Pune in March 1999 to celebrate the eve of Gudipadwa- the first day of Hindu calendar. It was based on the works of Pu La Deshpande. It was a journey of his literature, plays, novels, lyrics, music, cinema…the list is long. In the year 2000, Uttunga was based on the works of Pralhad Keshav Atre. Again it tried to encompass the multifaceted personality of Pra Ke who was a great writer, journalist, educationist and a true media personality. In the year 2001, Uttunga was based on the works of the modern Valmiki- Ga Di Madgulkar and the year 2002 saw the premiere of the show based on the works of Kusumagraj (Vi Va Shirwadkar).

 Uttunga is a multi-dimensional show, which uses stage techniques, filmic and audio-visual techniques, multimedia etc. It is based on a solid research into the works of the person. Top artists of the industry like Prashant Damle, Dilip Prabhavalkar, Atul Parchure, Bharati Achrekar, Ravindra Sathe, Shrikant Moghe and many more participate in these shows. These shows include singers, dancers, musicians and other performing artists, besides actors.
