Hollowness of Caste System Turned Into A Brilliant Screenplay That Reminds The Work Of Satyajit Ray,
30 March 2014 | by (Pune India) – See all my reviews

This is truly an exemplary piece of art depicting the disparity in the Indian caste system which has plagued the Indian society for centuries & even today our society at large haven't been able to overcome.

This is a movie about the aspirations of a village teenage boy from a very poor family of lower caste "kaikade". The family consists of ayi, appa, mulga (son Jabya) & mulgi(daughter). The family earns their livelihood by taking care of the cleanliness of the village to catching of pigs roaming around the village, so it leaves no doubt on the audience of the movie to realize the family's standard of living. Inspite of the challenge of 'hand to mouth' existence, Jabya likes going to school & is in complete disapproval of his families profession, particularly catching of pigs so that the pigs do not mess up the cleanliness of the high class people living in the village.

The movie clearly depicts the Herculean task of a Father to get his daughter married particularly when the resources are scarce. The expressions of the father is very touching particularly when one tries to put himself in the shoes of a daughter's father, particularly because of the harsh circumstances of their struggle to merely survive. On the other hand, Jabya likes a girl from his class who is from higher class family & it is his strong desire to own a pair of new jeans & top just to look good & impress his love. This thought process itself proves the innocence of a pure soul which has fallen pray to the sweetness of love.

The movie ends with the self realization of Jabya that the society in which he is a part of, has no appreciation or value for his thought process & ultimately is left disgruntled, remorse, shattered & heart broken only to bring in the darker side of a shattered soul.

This writing wasn't an easy writing at all as compared to the other movies that I have watched & jotted down my feelings about it. It took me more than a days time to just to think & join in the dots of hollowness within our caste system. Last but not the least, every effort in making such great films that brings out the hollowness within society of so called noble & social living beings, deserves a great amount of respect & accolades in portraying the darkest side hidden somewhere within us. This movie , even though released in Marathi in 2013, in the so called era of "Hi-Fi Tech Savvy India", took me back to the era of 1960's the first ever Indian Academy Award winner Mr. Satyajit Ray who has made History in Indian Cinema for his epic titles "Pather Pachali, Aporajita & Apur Sansar" popularly known as "The Apu Trilogy". With existence of like minded filmmakers, it makes me believe beyond any doubt that the art of filmaking will stay alive for some more time for us to appreciate the hues of life.
