Ruia's rating of the film Supermen of Malegaon

Something that's always bothered me about how people approach the film industries of nonwestern aestheticized "third world" countries like India is how they stay clear away from more commercial/mainstream films and instead go for recognized greats like Ray, etc when just separating Indian cinema into those categories is faulty ethnocentrism. SoM really makes a point to show how class shapes film culture in India.
