Strong criticism on Communism and its ideals

The movie captured my heart because it shows political party shouldn't be governed based on theories that are in the books they follow or in the way one guy. It should be in favor of people and time. Several occasions and examples are stated in movie about idealism that can be wrong, but even when they showed clearly all these and mocked them party people claimed the movie to be theirs. In 1 scene Srinivasans character mukundan is asked to type in his name in computer and flashback goes to the time when he is conducting strike against use of computers, another scene shows that people work hard to earn a living in foreign countries as construction workers and all but at home they do nothing just sit around and create problems. Then the starting shows conversation between Mukundan and his father,Mukundan says he is going to destroy all the plantations because they removed rice field to make it into plantations then his father asks its also agriculture and in the past communism destroyed a lot of things for which they had to say sorry in the future. So at present what seems to be right could turn out to be wrong in the future and saying sorry wont bring back what was destroyed. The movie also shows that communism has some good people but purely believing in books and ideals which are written down are not enough to serve people and their needs.
