Our take

Based on the eponymous novel by Gurdial Singh, this debut feature is a chronicle of the oppression experienced by the Dalits (lower caste) in rural Punjab. With its dark tones, silence, and meditative score, this film becomes a powerful reflection on the resilience and plight of the marginalised.
