Ragging And Its Repercussions. A Thought Provoking Film On A Issue Not Dealt By The Education System.
31 May 2011 | by See all my reviews

There hasn't been a student either in India or worldwide, that hasn't been bullied at some stage in his life.

The effect this has on the victim has far reaching and unimaginable consequences. The first is isolation and the development inferiority complex. If not dealt with by a psychiatrist, can lead to the individual becoming a social outcast, and his or her hatred of society as a whole. His identity is also becoming slowly annihilated.

This individual will tend to avoid social gatherings and keep a low profile. He or she is easily angered and provoked by ridicule.

Another effect is of revenge. When this occurs, he or she will take the law into his own hands. When this happens, I feel it is too late to save him or her.

Also ragging in college totally disrupts the education of the victim. He cannot concentrate on his studies due to fear of his assailants and also of thoughts of revenge.

The teachings of Jesus Christ doesn't come to play in the modern world. If you offer your enemy your cheek to be slapped, he will demolish your jaw with a "sledgehammer". And anyways its a DOG-EAT-DOG world.

Who is to blame. First and foremost it is the parent or guardian of the victim. The administrative board of college is second. And third it is the government for not offering us any protection as a citizen.

I sometimes wonder, why do governments and countries exist at all when billions of homeless and destitute and exploited people exist. This surely is the biggest enigma.

Hostel is a film directed by writer-director Manish Gupta who has scripted Sarkar (2005) and has directed The Stoneman Murders (2009).

The film starring Vatsal Sheth, Tulip Joshi and Mukesh Tiwari was released worldwide on January 21, 2011

Brief Plot: One night at the Boys' Hostel at Jaigarh University, Satara District, a senior student Feroz (Mukesh Tiwari) and his goons harass freshman geek Vishnu "Battery" Pandey (Subeer Goswamin), stripping him down, molesting him and tying a collar around his neck and forcing him to act like a dog. His cries for help falls on deaf ears as the watchman continues to go about on his rounds....

Verdict: This is among the best films of 2011, and a must watch. I should expect this to be seen by all the deans of colleges worldwide.
