  • Karthik's rating of the film Rodnya

    Containing perhaps one of the nuttiest dance sequences I have seen, this is an odd film where the storystuff & acting - veering between farce & gross sentimentality (when it drives the Country vs. City theme to absurd depths) is at an odd skew with both the melancholy lusciously subdued Hopperesque color palette and the devil-may-care quasi-documentary and by turns intrusive, cutely random & poignant camera movement
