The Government of India has chosen to present a literary award to Divakar Barve in recognition of his contribution to Indian Arts and Cinema. Divakar accepts this award, and the community decides to recognize this award-recipient at a special party just for him. Several big-wigs in Bombay city are invited, and they include Mohini, the alcoholic and aging wife of Divakar; Ravi an actor; Bharat an aspiring actor and poet; An aging Ruth who is always accompanied by a much younger boyfriend; Poet and producer, Agashe; Ila Arun the singer; and Achyut Potdar a Bollywood actor. Everyone awaits the arrival of Amrit, an activist. What the invitees do not know that the party is going to be gate-crashed by the host's, Mrs. Damyanti Rane's son and his teen-aged friend; a couple, Naren and Malvika; Then something unexpected happens: Amrit does arrive - but not in the way everybody expected him to arrive.

beg your pardon, Sam
13 May 2003 | by (Houston, TExas) – See all my reviews

but isn't this movie about people! people in general. in fact the story could apply to any people, any country. Behind the guise of adivasi exploitation (which of course is India specific and I don't deny its existence or absence) it actually questions morality, general apathy towards social issues and the role of an artist in participating in the solution rather than just commenting on it or evoking others' emotions on it (recall the long conversation that ends the movie before the news about Amrit is broken) this could have been written for any country, any society as for your other examples of 'good' movies, no comments :)

Cheers, Prakash.
