Realistic, and downright depressing.
8 August 1999 | by (Wolverhampton, England) – See all my reviews

The story of a man who dances to a small village while painted as a tiger, once a year, would seem to be a boring idea, but it is executes in such a fantastic style that I forgive the producers for depressing me for the night that I saw it. The views of Indian village life are totally realistic in my opinion and so are the villagers' attitudes. This ends the rosy view that many have of the countryside by showing ill-educated villagers for what they really are.

The whole film managed to depress me because I actually liked the main character, whose name I have forgotten, and felt what he was feeling as his life was taken apart by his new competitor. The ending, although slightly implausible given the brutal realism of the rest of the film, was full of tension and did manage to cap off a sad, sad film. Worth a look if you ever come across it.
