A recap of our shocking history filled with many heartbreaking details which are based on true events, the film isn’t easy to watch. Not only because of the atrocities, but because of the inaction of the government in power then and the way this episode has been forgotten entirely.
The film sets a mood from the very beginning, building on it without relying on music or histrionics. We see different sides to the story, the role of different elements, some told in passing, others in more detail.
Watch it to revise the history of the land, those that led to its prosperity and those that ultimately ruined it. Great performances by the cast and crew and bravo to Vivek Agnihotri for his astute direction.
History can be forgotten but not denied.
