Summary: Noted Kannada writer Ramchandrappa’s directorial debut is a ruralist drama about caste exploitation, showing that economic exploitation goes beyond orthodox caste divides: when in power, rich Harijans (Untouchables) exploit people as ruthlessly as their erstwhile Brahmin masters did. Sometimes construed as a reply to the relentless anti- brahminism of the Navya writers and film- makers.
