Storyline

Four immigrants (Pandi, Murugan, Afsal and Kumar) are detained by the local state police, tortured and forced to admit to a crime they have no knowledge of. When all hope seems to be lost, a policeman from their hometown speaks on their behalf at the court hearing, setting them free. The policeman asks for a return favor and the boys oblige, oblivious to the consequences that await them. As they unwittingly bear witness to a political treason, the system seeks to silence them at any cost. But Pandi is determined to be heard. Written by anonymous

Seen as a non-Indian ...
3 July 2016 | by TarsitiusSee all my reviews

This film was on the competition list of the 2016 'Bildrausch' ('Image Inebriation') Filmfest in Basel, Switzerland. It did not win the 1st price ...

Since all reviewers so far stem from the Indian cultural space, which will have a positive effect on the rating of any artwork from that area, I permit myself to add my modest review as an European, trying to be more neutral.

The film comes technically perfect. Content-wise, it cannot reach the quality of the major Western directors, though. So don't expect too much.

The background of the acting is always an urban area - lots of police stations and jails. The lacking of any natural environment (except in the end scene with a swamp surrounded by apartment houses), together with the lack of humour and irony, make the film a bit desperate and breathless to look, although corresponding to the reality.

There is a lot of violence, beatings, going on nearly all the time. These actions look often exaggerated, like punching a ball.

As the director revealed in the discussion following the watching, the story was composed of two different real stories, hence its extraordinary length.

Overall certainly worth to see (not for children or fainthearted).
