satire on contemporary political system, 26 May 2006 i watched the film screened as part of the festival of Cannes film festival at Hyderabad, AP, India. i immensely liked the film. the use of executing a death sentence to convey the way vested political interests work in the countryside is not only clever but also comical.
an innocent obedient servant is charged with murder and is put to death by sitting on an electric chair just imported from the us of a. he is the first victim, rather beneficiary of the most peaceful death aided by technology.completely neglecting the aspect of death and punishment, totally sidetracking the merits of the case, other aspects are glorified in a comical way. one of the best satires i have seen. artistes performance is excellent and the film has good technical values. though, i find the lighting dull most of the time.
