Storyline

Few regions in the state of Maharashtra are famous for the farmer suicide rate they account for everyday. Kisna, a farmer like many others is trying as hard as he can to work hard but so many things, including nature are stacked against him. Kisna's family is trying in their own simple way to please him and avert the inevitable. Kisna's wife is convinced that he is contemplating ending his life and hence ropes in their 6 year old son, albeit against his wish and comprehends him to be with his father all the time and report any irregularities in his behavior. Kisna, meanwhile is unaware that he is being watched as a possible candidate for suicide and proceeds doing only what he knows best, toil hard, get a crop, pray that the rains will be on his side at least this year, sell his product and prepare for the next season.

Great cinematic portrayal of the plight of Vidarbha farmers
7 January 2011 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Gabhricha Paus is a realistic cinematic portrayal of the plight of Vidarbha farmers. It accurately depicts the melange comprising of-- dearth of structured agricultural credit, dependence on monsoon, farmers' ignorance, posthumous compensation for suicides, rural loan sharks,emotional trauma of farmer's wives, and hopelessness of a people who have become accustomed to the spate of suicides.

If you have read newspaper articles about farmer suicides and never appreciated the gravity of the issue; this movie will be an eye-opener.

The screenplay and direction manages to infuse black humor despite the grave nature of the topic. Both Girish Kulkarni and Sonali Kulkarni have acted well. Perhaps, a more experienced director could have tied the few loose ends in editing and cinematography and made a masterpiece. However, it is still a great movie. Highly recommend it.
