U N T O U C H A B I L I T Y , the bane of Indian society.
Bhavni Bhavai, Kanku and Kashino Dikro - are three best made films in Gujarati.Bhavni Bhavai literally means ' Play of Lifespan ', Life span is described as plot of play (Reminds of Shakespearean phrase "all the world is astage" .Bhavai is a traditional folk play played mostly by Taragalas- a cast which specialises in profession of acting. It is street play which depicts various facets of social life.
Misintrepretion of cast system by vested interest have resulted in belief that some castes are superior to others. The people of superior cast oppress and humiliate lower cast, but the irony is a superior cast man will sleep with lady of lower cast at will but will not drink water touched by her !!! The story is told in lyrical form ( an important attribute of Bhavai play ).Though writing credits are given to Ketan Mehta the director the plot borrows heavily almost word by word from play written by Dhiruben Patel.
