A savage satire on political developments in Kerala
29 August 1999 | by (New Delhi, India) – See all my reviews

Abraham's film is a savage satire on political developments in Kerala during the turbulent seventies. It is in the form of a visual report to his mother in his village. The film spares no one and brutally exposes the hypocrisy and doublespeak of political leaders in a politically volatile part of India. Stark in its form and soul revealing in its content, it is a masterpiece by a deeply committed film maker who died very young and very tragically. A must see for lovers of political cinema.
