A government clerk on election duty in the conflict ridden jungle of Central India tries his best to conduct free and fair voting despite the apathy of security forces and the looming fear of guerrilla attacks by communist rebels.
Four lives intersect along the Ganges: a low caste boy hopelessly in love, a daughter ridden with guilt of a sexual encounter ending in a tragedy, a hapless father with fading morality, and a spirited child yearning for a family, long to escape the moral constructs of a small-town.
It is a well done movie all around. The acting is superb and away from your typical Bollywood singing stuff. The cinematography is also good and the colors realistic.
I have to say I am surprise at the whole movie, especially the actors. I think they did a wonderful job and shows that India does have good actors away from the, again, typically singing, drama, funny types. It is hard to explain, it's different from Slumdog and Marigold Hotel. If anything I would say it's because of the directing.
It is a shame that the culture and traditions are what they are. It is always an interesting mix when you see modern technology mixed in with the still arcane way of life. It is the same with our people as well. However, it is a realistic movie and one should appreciate the setting as much as the story.
Enjoy the movie.
