Story of revenge by so called upper class landlord who brutally massacres entire shudra village
21 October 2012 | by bamcef-deltaSee all my reviews

Excellent artwork and promotional song. Beyond this the movie does no justice to the title "Shudra-the rising". In fact the movie is deceptive and antipathetic to the title. What I inferred from the title was that the movie would show the struggle which "shudras" (aboriginals enslaved and subjugated by the aryan race invaders) have been undergoing (in past as well as in 65 years of independent India) to attain emancipation, education, equality and dignity. The movie instead shows how foreign invaders despised, abused and degenerated them portraying demoralizing, distasteful picture. Debauchery, moral corruption and shrewdness of the upper class was trivialized. Climax was abrupt. End documentary was like microscopic warning on cigarette pack. Entire movie runs for about 120 minutes. It seems the movie sustained severe censure. Three stars only for acting and locations.
