A realistic film lacking cinematic frames.....
10 January 2017 | by SumanShakyaSee all my reviews

"Chauranga" delves into a long forgotten subject in Hindi Movies, caste discrimination. The film serves an eye opener to the fact that there are still places where the Dalits (the lower caste) are oppressed against their human rights. The higher caste still exploit them for cheap labour, sexual relationships, and to retain their self esteem, yet they are mutilated, abused, and killed. The film presents a horrific picture of our society; and for its subject, the film remains commendable.

But whatever has been presented, has been done in subdued colors lacking the cinematic charisma for which the viewers might not accept the film for entertainment values. In the central are two teenagers from Dalit community along which the whole story revolves, and for the both the film remains watchable. On a whole, this short film remains a documentation of a society which despite been well made lacks the cinematic frames and is unable to astound you.

Rating: 2 stars out of 4
