A struggle of a girl against her marriage to an old man and the amazing results
1 February 2005 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Director V. Shantaram is one of the greatest directors of his time in India. not that his directorial skills were something to sing about but the bold subject matters and the harsh but truthful representation with a positive outlook really were ahead of its times.

Kunku gives us a story of a girl who is married to a man who old enough to be her father. She fights and denies this relation but finally when confronted with reality finds herself not willing to let go.

Shantaram pares down his narrative to bare essentials and keeps his treatment starkly realistic. The background music is eschewed, retaining only natural sounds - effects and voices in his sound track. Even the songs used in the film are done so with a source shown for the music. The major food for thought in Kunku however concerns the film's ending. Its a masterpiece considering the time when it was made and the vision of the director.
