Our good old cocky daze...
22 December 2019 | by shashwatsisodiyaSee all my reviews

Rishi Chandna's ''Tungrus'' is the definitive, best Indian documentary to come out in the last decade despite many other, longer and realized docs which came. It's a personal favourite for me because it is more about cramped human souls than animals and their nuisances in human settlements and suburbs. I loved how the makers quiet in a qualified way explore the regressive, delved-in but surprisingly comical depths at which the family's humane side unfolds. The story is so personal and so relatable about having an unusual pet that you'll take this as an intimate journey of your own, not to mention that it deserves repeat viewing. I am going with four out of five for Tungrus. Make sure you watch it.
