The dark underbelly- Casteism
30 September 2018 | by malarvizhiinbaSee all my reviews

Something we don't notice in our daily civil life, something we get to see only if the situation arises or if you live in a caste infested area. Amazing how this movie brings it out in the open, compel us to think and also keeps us engaged throughout. The story is not complex, yet it brings you to the edge of your seat at moments. It is filled with symbolism, especially a scene where it symbolizes that casteism commits suicide. Beautiful. It doesn't show oppression solely by creating sympathy and showing the oppressed class getting further and further oppressed unlike in some movies. You feel for the hero, you're with him and cheer for him. Overall, it's an important part of movie history about casteism.
