Storyline

This documentary is the most comprehensive look at the "untouchables" in India. Motivated by ancient religious edicts, no amount of governmental encouragement has been able to stem the tragic custom that separates human beings according to their birth. Those considered untouchable suffer more than isolation, they are forced to fulfill menial tasks in their communities, drink from separate containers, remove their shoes on the street as a sign of respect and perform or exhibit many other outward signs of their perceived inferiority. While the media projects a positive image of a democratic India, filmmaker Stalin K spends four years traveling the country to expose the continued oppression of the Dalits, "the broken people," in a wide variety of communities, including Sikhs, Christians and Muslims.

Must watch
16 July 2012 | by (Indore) – See all my reviews

It is really a eye opening documentary. A must watch for the developing young country, where modern education resides with trivial preachings. People say that there should not be reservation based on caste system. Why those people never say that there should not be any caste system. This video shows all that, which is actually happening around us, and the modern generation sits blindfolded, complaining about minor issues. All those, who complain about all the bad things in system, please consider that there are some things that are far severe. There are issues that need to be seen. There are problems that no more can be ignored. Nice work guys. I really appreciate the work you have done.
