7 October 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Well filmed and a close look at an Indian community. Sadly the story is not one that engenders much empathy for the family at is center. It does show how violence and selfishness are not reserved to any one ethnicity. Peasants being exploited and cheated victimize the weakest member of their family. If you disregard the rights of children you might find these people sympathetic. If you area realist you will see that they told gang up on the weak.
