Actor-filmmaker Amol Palekar, who is identified with simple and loveable comedies, says his Marathi directorial venture We Are On - Houn Jau Dya belongs to the same family of movies.

The 68-year-old, still remembered for his roles in Golmaal and Choti Si Baat, turned to direction with 1981 Marathi movie Aakriet.

Talking about his current film, Palekar said: "The film belongs to the same genre - a simple, nice, lovable comedy and you won't even realise and two hours will be passed." 

He was interacting with reporters here Friday while promoting his film on 92.7 BIG FM radio.

"It's a film which you should see with your family, friends, and colleagues," he added.

Palekar also feels language is no barrier for a good film.

"You will enjoy the film even if you don't know Marathi language because a good comedy is independent of the language," said Palekar, who worked with directors like Basu Chatterjee and Hrishikesh Mukherjee.

For We Are On - Houn Jau Dya, Palekar and co-director Sandhya Gokhale have roped in some of the biggest names from the Marathi film industry. They have gathered who's who of the Marathi film world for their humour-filled treat. 

Ashok Saraf, Dilip Prabhavalkar, Manoj Joshi, Pushkar Shrotri, Upendra Limaye, Vijay Kenkre, Satish Alekar, Ajit Kelkar, Shriram Pendse and Sunil Godbole to name a few.

The film is slated to release on April 26.
