Storyline

A seminal reformist melodrama critiquing the zamindari system from the viewpoint of the Kisan Sabha agitations in A.P. Small-time landowner Narsi Reddy (Raghawan) borrows money from a shavukar [money-lender (Raghavan)] who represents the major zamindar (Sitapathy) of the village. When Narsi Reddy votes for a peasant candidate (Kosaraju) rather than for the political party supported by the landlord, his son is attacked and he is publicly humiliated. Written by Sujit R. Varma

A movie that reflects the real scenarioes of the contemporary issues
21 July 2012 | by cskarriSee all my reviews

Is a movie much ahead of its shooting times in castigating the practices of troublesome policies of landlords in a country like India, where the land is the only reliable means for livlihood to many people who are ready to toil and lead a decent - if not - comfortable life.

Screen play, dialogues, background scores and cinematography are par execellence and last but not the least is the memorable performance by the entire cast who did justice to their roles.

Though it was shot in black and white, the characterization of roles, the timing and sequencing of events make us spell bound and can not leave in the middle watching it.

It can be watched repeatedly, though requires an empathic mind !

Credit goes to entire crew and the cast.
