Corruption, violence, mayhem. Another day in the desert...
What a beautiful film.
Shot on location in the deserts of India this little violent tale speaks volumes with hardly any dialogue. The cast are very impressive and employed because of their 'look'.
It deals with corruption and violence featuring characters from both sides of the law that are ready to rob and kill for money, food and sex. Superb cinematography. Can you go wrong in a desert? Characters ; The violent mute. The deadly con man. The Corrupt police man. The tainted woman. Beautiful landscape shots mixed with tight shots of the 'evil' in the mens eyes and actions. Great editing points. Amazing use of light.
Very well produced by the Bureau. It would be interesting to know what the budget was, i would say in excess of £30,000
All in all a razor edged tale of deception. Timeless folklore.
I look forward to a feature film by Amit Kumar.
