A Superb Series about Life and Trains on the Indian Subcontinent
29 September 2016 | by captainpatSee all my reviews

India's Frontier Railways is a fascinating look at the trains running from India to Bangladesh, Pakistan and Nepal. The three part series explores the lives of the people who work and travel on these trains. I was moved by the sheer poverty and simplicity of their lives and how these ageing trains bring hope, life and connection. The director has captured the moment - and brought to life the rich and difficult lives of India's neighbours - regardless of their status and religion. One thing that stood out for me was their sense of hope - one young man in Nepal wanted to join his brother working as a labourer in Qatar. To do this his father, who worked for the railways, would have to borrow money for the air ticket etc and pay the debt back at 60% interest per year. The series by Gerry Troyna is well crafted - I watched it on Netflix.
