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.
