Incidentally, he belongs to a lower caste, a family below the poverty line which does all sorts of jobs in the village to survive like catching Pigs and the girl belongs to a higher caste. His parents are working hard to arrange money for their daughter's wedding while Jabya is collecting money for new clothes to impress the girl. Fandry is a story of his aspirations, quest, sorrows, anguish and frustrations. Fandry also touches upon the age old monster of Caste System which is still lurking large upon the society.

A life of wishing for more
8 April 2017 | by spunkyexplorationsSee all my reviews

This movie is staged in a rural village in India. It focuses on the young son of the only family of "untouchables" in the village. He hopes and dreams for more than he is allowed to have, which contrasts to the humiliations he must endure being of such a low caste. He also struggles with coming of age, as he finds he has feelings of attraction to a girl.

The story has a slower pace, allowing us to really experience and contemplate the daily life of this boy and his poverty-stricken family. Their struggles and the oppression they face feel more meaningful because these things are not exaggerated in the name of drama, instead realism is the focus.
