Bambaru Avith ( The Wasps are here ) is the third narrative film of Dharmasena Pathiraja which was made in 1978. This film announces unequivocally his dedication to fashioning a cinema that is socially committed , that does not shy away from the troublesome issues of the time . A sense of freedom and true spirit pervades the movie which has the effect of unsettling and subverting some of the cherished beliefs of society .
