A superb film by a brave film make, about the village of malana.
24 November 2012 | by iarora-arSee all my reviews

After i watched this i was amazed, could not believe someone would raise this issue in India but Amlan is very very talented ,brave and a highly intelligent film maker(hope we see more filmmakers like him soon).

The FILM stands out because it's an honest experience which moves you and leads you to question the foundations and ethics on which our beloved nation is run. It makes you realize that after more than six decades of independence, India is probably amongst the most regressive nations in the world.

The wonderful factor about this documentary is that it doesn't preach a thing. It doesn't tell you that the government is bad or that cannabis should be legalized. Neither does it does not advocate the rights of the downtrodden. It shares an experience and leaves it to your prudence to make a choice on the subject matters which have been dealt with.

Watch Amlan Datta's BOM if you manage to come across the movie. It is amongst the finest Indian documentaries that I have come across!
