one of the best movies out of India
16 August 2005 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the best movies I have seen to come out of India. The film has distanced itself from the formulaic elements in Indian film- making of songs and dances and of parallel comedic/romantic tracks to increase the commercial value of the film. What captivates you instead is simply the life of Kamaraj also known as 'Black Gandhi' that is portrayed very simply. The film that stands out by the amount of attention paid to detail in portraying the life of this activist freedom fighter in pre-Independence India and his role in nation building post-Independence. I was particularly impressed with the understated and realistic performances put in by the entire cast that gives the movie a documentary like feel. The film does use real footage from his funeral procession at the end. The narration is fast clipped and the tension developed relies simply on the turn of events in the politics of the time. While anyone is bound to enjoy this film, this will hold special appeal for anyone interested in the politics of India and especially Tamilnadu during this period (1903-75) including the 'emergency declared by Indira' and also for anyone with an appreciation for the different dialects of Tamil.
