The best film-maker from India since Ray, Ismail Merchant and Shekhar Kapur
26 April 2013 | by sherlock-14See all my reviews

I have seen all of Mr. Patwardhan's documentaries. They should be essential viewing for anyone who wants to look beyond 'the official story' put forward by the media and the Indian government i.e.the rich and powerful.

Jai Bhim confronts the dirty reality of the caste system something India hides from the rest of the world. Indians are quick to point out racism against them in other countries when they are guilty of the worst kind of racism and discrimination -violent, brutal and degrading and all this comes down from their 'sacred' but completely sexist,racist Hindu texts.
