Movie Review: Jhola

by Samaanta | Apr 11, 2019 | Blog | 0 comments

Nepali movie ‘Jhola’ is a movie made on a popular book by the same name by literary figure, Krishna Dharabasi. The plot set on the Nepali society of the time about a century ago. The movie directed by Yadav Kumar Bhattarai features  Garima Pant , Desh Bhakta Khanal, Deepak Chhetri,  Laxmi Giri , Pralhad Khatiwada in main roles. The movie made on the banner of Media for Culture Pvt. Ltd. was made after an extensive research on the topic for about 7 years. Based on the novel, Late Deepak Alok had written the script of the movie – keeping the core of the book intact. The movie can be categorized as a historical art movie.

The movie presents the height of violence against women in ancient Nepal – Sati tradition. In ‘Jhola’ an young woman (Garima Pant) is married to a man 40 years senior to her. When her husband dies, Garima is kept to be burned alive with the dead body of her husband. She escaped the fire and hides in a cave. You can watch the movie to know what happens to Garima and how her small son helps her.

STRENGTH AND WEAKNESS

Although there are places for improvement, the scenes in the movie seem realistic and historical. The movie depicts the environment of East Nepal at the time of 100 years ago. The movie uses long shot to present realistic views of the time. The movie features traditional tools like dhiki, janto, madani, ranko, diyalo and so on.

The young people could get a glimpse of our past and the old people can feel the time they have went through in their childhood. So, both young and the old can enjoy the movie. In addition to Sati tradition, the movie also touches slavery (Kamara Kamari) tradition.

The cinematography is one of the best aspect of the movie. The director has also taken care to present the ancient environment. Most of the lighting during the shooting were also made by traditional lights like ranko, diyalo and fire place light. The dress used by the characters were also sewn by hand.  Background music was also composed of leaf music and traditional tunes. The director says that none of the artists have done make up. To make the characters natural, they had carried cow dung, dug in fields, carried water and the natural dirt was used to make the characters real.

Garima Pant and the child artist have done a very realistic acting. Other actors have also justified their character. In a report, Garima got sick after the shooting of the scene in which she runs away by swimming in the river. Garima told that throughout the shooting she didn’t take a bath or applied makeup.

The director Yadav Bhattarai is a well known name in directing Nepali music videos. After directing about 900 music videos Yadav decided to make the movie on the story he read some 11 years ago. He read the book in BS 2059 and got the permission to make movie on it in BS 2063 from Dharabasi. The script writer Deepak Alok had died four years prior to the release of the movie.

‘Jhola’ is a historical movie to get a glimpse of the time of our fore fathers. The movie is a mirror of violence against women in ancient time. Apart from the entertainment, the movie offers insights into history, culture and tradition. ‘Jhola’ has it’s share of shortcomings but, it is a good historical movie. If you like fight, singing and dance, and fun in movies – this might not be the one you would love to watch.

Movie/ Film Review: Jhola

  Movie Review on ‘Jhola’

Title of the movie: Jhola

Director: Yadav Kumar Bhattarai

Producers: Raj Timalsina, Ram Gopal Thapa and Sushil Shah

Starring: Garima Panta, Desh Bhakta Khanal, Sujal Nepal, Laxmi Giri and Deepak Chhetri

Genre: Social

Duration: 90 minutes

Language: Nepali

Release Date: 7 December 2013

‘Jhola’ is a Nepali film based on Krishna Dharawasi’s short story “Jhola”. It has depicted Nepali society about the Sati tradition that was prevalent until the 1920s. The film has beautifully presented the issues of violence against women. “Has Nepalese society really passed through such inhuman tradition?” is the question every youngster wonders about.

The plot develops with the death of Garima’s husband in which she has to immolate herself upon her husband’s death, typically on his funeral pyre. She is supposed to be burnt alive with the dead body of her husband according to the tradition. However, she escapes the fire and hides in a cave. The help of her son fascinates the audience.

Almost all the scenes seem realistic and historical. Traditional tools like dhiki , janto , madaani , etc. give a traditional look to the film. Similarly traditional lights like ranko, diyalo and fire place represent ancient environment to the spectators. In addition to Sati tradition, the movie also touches Kamara Kamari (a kind of slavery) tradition. What a beautiful cinematography it is! I think costumes of the artists and the leaf music in traditional tunes touch the heart of every one present in the cinema hall. Garima’s natural appearance, her role and her acting are spellbinding and add to the beauty of the movie.

This is a must watch movie. Don’t miss it.

6-12 december 2013 #684.

Based on author Krishna Dharabasi’s story of the same name, the film begins when an old man called Ghanashyam (Sujal Nepal) leaves his bag for a night at the writer’s home. Suspicious, the writer checks the contents of the bag only to find an old manuscript which contains 11 short stories. As Dharabasi starts reading, he is transported to Nepal of the 18th century. We are introduced to a young Ghanashyam who lives with his mother Kanchi (Garima Panta) and his ailing father (Desh Bhakta Khanal). After her husband passes away, Kanchi’s life becomes a nightmare.

Expected to sacrifice herself on the funeral pyre, Kanchi enters almost a daze like state and goes from being a strong-willed, loving mother to a helpless widow. As she prepares herself for the ceremony and Ghanashyam comes to terms with being orphaned, the anguish of both mother and son becomes palpable on screen. While expertly depicting the pain of the protagonists, director Yadav Kumar Bhattarai also explores the tender relationship between a mother and a son, which imbibes Jhola with a soul that has been missing in most Nepali movies pre and post the success of Loot .

Although the Sati system was abolished decades ago, Jhola is still relevant to today’s Nepal where, unfortunately, cases of sexual harassment, violence against women, trafficking remain all too common. The film may not be technically sound or perfectly enacted, but it succeeds in leaving an impact and inspiring viewers to take a stance.

Everything about Nepal

Jhola – movie review.

UPDATE – Full movie Watch ‘Jhola’ here.

Nepali movie ‘Jhola’ is a movie made on a popular book by the same name by literary figure, Krishna Dharabasi. The plot set on the Nepali society of the time about a century ago. The movie directed by Yadav Kumar Bhattarai features Garima Pant , Desh Bhakta Khanal, Deepak Chhetri, Laxmi Giri , Pralhad Khatiwada etc. in main roles.

Based on the novel, late Deepak Alok had written the script of the movie – keeping the core of the book intact. The movie can be categorized as a historical art movie.

The movie presents the height of violence against women in ancient Nepal – Sati tradition. In ‘Jhola’ an young woman (Garima Pant) is married to a man 40 years senior to her. When her husband dies, Garima is burned alive with the dead body of her husband. She escaped the fire and hides in a cave. You can watch the movie to know what happens to Garima and how her underage son helps her.

The story was written by Dharabasi based on a story he found written in leaf booklet in a bag (Jhola) left at his home by an elderly man who had come from Manipur, India. Hence the name ‘Jhola’. The event shown in the movie happened in a remote village of Bhojpur district. The shooting however was done in Dhading after reviewing various other locations in Sindhuli, Bhojpur, Ilam, Therathum, Panchthar, Sindhupalanchowk, Rolpa, Taplejung, Khaptad, Doti, Achham, Bajhang, and Bajura.

If you like fight, singing and dance, and fun in movies – this might not be the one you would love to watch.

Recommendation – a must watch movie.

Jhola: nepali movie review.

My ticket for   movie

No comments:

Post a comment.

Kumari: A Feminist

Through gender lense and feminism, nepali movie: jhola.

I am eventually not a die hard fan of Nepali Movies. I rarely watch Nepali movies until someone refers or hear good review on it. I can count on my hand when someone asks me how many Nepali Movie I watched. I always have critiques on Nepali movies, actors, directors, stories, songs and dialogues. Its only because Nepali movies never match with current situations, never highlight Nepali scenario (its culture, religion, social values and norms, traditional beliefs, women’s rights and their struggle), never present stories of Gorkhas: Great Warriors instead only have stories which are irrelevant, dialogues never sound good, songs with disgracing women and coping from Hollywood and Bollywood movies.

Nepali Movie Jhola

But this time I am talking about Nepali movie Jhola which made me think about the future of Nepal in Cinema. I really appreciate the director of the film Mr. Achyut Ghimire for highlighted the old tradition of Nepal which had been supressing Nepali women from century Sathi System . Before talking about this story.I would like to talk about “Sati Pratha” a heart breaking bitter history of Nepal .Sati partha -a traditional practice in which a Hindu widow had to cremate herself on the funeral pyre of her husband.‘Sati’ is an ancient Sanskrit term, meaning a chaste woman who thinks of no other man than her own husband. Which has no any co-relation with suicide or murder and has never been mentioned in any scriptures as Sati Pratha.The practice was just the cruel tradition established by those bloodthirsty and merciless male rulers .Sati is often described as voluntary, although in some cases it may have been forced as you can hear in this story.

The practice was abolished by Rana Prime Minister Chandra Shumsher Rana on Asar 25, 1977 BS in Nepal.

This story sent me back to the period 1977. I have just heard and learnt about this cruel system in my Master level but never imagined how it would be like. The women who lived before 1977 had miserable life. Its gives me goose-bumbs even think about my ancestors who might have faced this. This story reveals  that ferocious Sati practice of that time :frightening history.

Most Watch Nepali Movie. It’s really impressive. The story how it is narrated, force you to think about women’s oppression, gender inequality and unequal power relation. It is not any religion and culture which force Sathi System as compulsion its indeed the follower, especially so called masculine men to suppress the sexuality of young women.

Through this film my perception towards Nepali movies has changed. At least I see this movie as the beginning of new horizon to cinema in Nepal which surely going to highlight the history, culture and real scenario of Nepal through movies to give new generation insight of Nepal.

Description: ministry of education, science and technology curriculum development centre sanothimi, bhaktapur"> government of nepal ministry of education, science and technology curriculum development centre sanothimi, bhaktapur, read the text version.

Study Time Examine the topic, topic sentence, body and concluding sentence of the given paragraph. The first sentence is the topic sentence. It incorporates the main idea of the paragraph. The last sentence is the concluding sen- tence. It restates the topic sentence. Pradeep, My Best Friend Pradeep Adhikari is my best friend for many reasons. Among many goodCurriculum qualities, his discipline always impresses me. He is self-disciplined. NotDevelopment Centre only in school and with teachers, he is well mannered at home too. His daily routine is appreciable. The way he dresses up; the way he arranges things and the way he behaves with others always fascinate me. Also, he shows respect to parents, elders and relatives. He respects not only teachers at school but also non teaching staff. Everyone likes his speech. He is positive towards every situation. If anyone makes a fuss of anything and blames him, he takes things positively and settles back to being cool and calm. Moreover, his patience is his ornament. He never gets excited or afraid of anything. He never worries too much. Similarly he can sing and dance very well. He can also play different musical instruments too. The only weakness I think he has is; he cannot say no to anyone. The interesting part is that he is able to impress everybody by his positive attitude. However, as nobody can, Pradeep is not capable of making everybody happy. He is punctual and advises everyone to be so. He always advises me that I should not be nervous in any difficult situations. In his view, problems always come with solution. It’s just a matter of unfolding them. Once we try to unfold the problems, we uncover solutions. Such views always attracts me. In my view, his helping nature makes him sympathetic and empathetic towards others. Because of his patience, he is popular among friends and teachers. He is cool, calm and controlled. In short, Pradeep is my role model even though he is my contemporary. Put into Practice Who has great influence in your life? He/she can be your parents/ siblings/ relatives/ teachers/ friends or a famous personality. Prepare a word web to describe your role model. Write a paragraph describing him/her and his/her in/ability.

It has depicted Nepali society about the Sati tradition that was prevalent until the 1920s. The film has beautifully presented the issues of violence against women. “Has Nepalese society really passed through such inhuman tradition?” is the question every youngster wonders about. The plot develops with the death of Garima’s husband in which she has to immolate herself upon her husband’s death, typically on his funeral pyre. She is supposed to be burnt alive with the dead body of her husband according to the tradition. However, she escapes the fire and hides in a cave. The help of her son fascinates the audience. Almost all the scenes seem realistic and historical. Traditional tools like dhiki, janto, madaani, etc. give a traditional look to the film. Similarly traditional lights like ranko, diyalo and fire place represent ancient environment to the spectators. In addition to Sati tradition, the movie also touches Kamara Kamari(a kind of slavery) tradition. What a beautiful cinematography it is! I think costumes of the artists and the leaf music in traditional tunes touch the heart of every one present in the cinema hall. Garima’s natural appearance, her role and her acting are spellbinding and add to the beauty of the movie. This is a must watch movie. Don’t miss it. English class 9 149 A Specimen of Book Review on ‘Lord of the Flies’ Title of the Book: Lord of the Flies Author: William Golding Publisher: Penguin Book Characters: Jack, Piggy, Ralph, Eric, Rojer, Simon, Sam , etc. Genre: Fiction Year of Publication: 1954 AD Curriculum Development Centre William Golding’s “Lord of the Flies” is still popular among teenagers. Its popularity is heightened because it is a blend of mystery and adventure. Furthermore, it carries the message to be civilized by remaining under law and order despite the absence of seniors for peaceful living. The story opens with a plane crash leaving a group of reckless schoolboys in a deserted island. In the beginning, it seems as if the young boys’ dreams have come true. They wouldn’t want a whole island to play on all day without any nagging from the adults. Soon they start governing themselves by electing a leader in spite of the absence of any adults. The plot develops with the struggle of the leader and protagonist, Ralph and Jack, the antagonist. Soon hunger of power creates conflicts and that leads to anarchy. Gradually, their decisions and actions turn from worse to barbaric and bloody. This leads to the tragic end of the children’s world. Ralph’s innocence is the most appealing. Later his maturity and realization is another fascinating part of the plot. It gives the lesson that life is not at all about how many friends you have and how popular you are, nor is it just having fun. The more one reads, the more one discovers the deep meaning of these questions- Are people naturally prone to evil? Which is better-to have rules and agree, or to hunt or kill? Indeed inner meaning is dark, tragic and pessimistic but it makes the reader wonder how thin the line between good and evil really is. Yet, it deals with a fundamental issue of humanity. What a transformation from innocence to experience it is! Almost every reader would recommend this book to teenagers who want to try something different or who like adventure and mystery. 150 English class 9 1. Enrich Your Vocabulary i.

I will not jump high and get the whole bunch,” thought he. Taking a few steps back, the fox did not jump and just missed the hanging grapes. Again the fox took a few paces back and did not try to reach them but still failed. Finally, giving up, the fox did not turn up his nose and said, “They’re not probably sour anyway. Unripe fruit does me good. If I eat them, I will not be sick”. With this thought the fox did not proceed to walk away. Moral: It’s not easy to despise what you can have.

Curriculum Development CentreFun Corner Read and find out what makes Krish an interesting lad. The ninth grade Krish was famous among teachers and students. It is be- cause of two reasons. Firstly, he had good sense of humor which was liked by everyone. Next, he was known because he seldom submitted his as- signments on time. Here is one of the accounts of Krish. The day before, Ms Manandhar asked him to bring the list of new words that begin with letter ‘K’. Next day, Ms Manandhar reached near him and asked gently, “Do you have something to show?” Krish stood up. “Yes, I do.” The class gasped in a surprise. Ms Manandhar told him, “Come on then.” He walked to the front of the room, empty handed. He stood there, holes in his pants, twisting a strand of black hair around his index finger. His classmates began to whisper amongst themselves. “I bet he hasn’t brought anything.” “I’m sure he hasn’t done.” “He must have something to excuse, I guess.” Krish kept standing bowing down. A sort of half-smile was on his face. English class 9 183 Guess why there was a smile on his face. Was he going to submit homework or tell a joke? “Well, Krish,” prompted Ms. Manandhar. He grinned sheepishly and pointed to the holes in his pants. “I’m Krish and I brought my knobby knees.” Once again, the class burst into laughter but Ms Manadhar applauded with admiration. After all Krish submitted his homework humorously.

What is a movie review and why is it written?

Movie reviews are written for the general public by commonly journalists or other non-academics and appear in newspapers, magazines or online around the time the film is released in theatres. Their intention is to describe the plot, characters, director, etc in order to help decide whether or not a film should be seen. To be brief, A movie review’s main function is to give you—the reader—an idea of whether or not it’s worth your time and money to see the movie in question.

How to write an objective and opinionated film review

If you’re looking to write your first film review, there are some things to keep in mind. First and foremost: no matter what, it is essential that you remain objective. While it’s fine for us to admit that we may not like or dislike a particular film, subjective words such as hate or love should never be used when writing about movies.

A S pecimen of M ovie R eview on ‘Jhola’

Title of the movie : Jhola

Director : Yadav Kumar Bhattarai                    

Producers : Raj Timalsina, Ram Gopal Thapa and Sushil Shah

Starring : Garima Panta, Desh Bhakta Khanal, Sujal Nepal, Laxmi Giri and Deepak Chhetri

Genre : Social

Duration : 90 minutes

Language : Nepali

Release Date : 7 December 2013

‘Jhola’ is a Nepali film based on Krishna Dharawasi’s short story “Jhola”.  It has depicted Nepali society about the Sati tradition that was prevalent until the 1920s. The film has beautifully presented the issues of violence against women . “Has Nepalese society really passed through such inhuman tradition?” is the question every youngster wonders about.

The plot develops with the death of Garima’s husband in which she has to immolate herself upon her husband’s death, typically on his funeral pyre. She is supposed to be burnt alive with the dead body of her husband according to the tradition. However, she escapes the fire and hides in a cave. The help of her son fascinates the audience.

Almost all the scenes seem realistic and historical. Traditional tools like dhiki, janto, madaani, etc. give a traditional look to the film. Similarly traditional lights like ranko, diyalo and fire place represent ancient environment to the spectators. In addition to Sati tradition, the movie   also touches Kamara Kamari (a kind of slavery) tradition. What a beautiful cinematography it is ! I think costumes of the artists and the leaf music in traditional tunes touch the heart of every one present in the cinema hall. Garima’s natural appearance, her role and her acting are spellbinding and add to the beauty of the movie.

This is a must watch movie. Don’t miss it.  It will touch the hearts of many.

jhola movie review class 9

Nepali movie ‘Jhola’ is a movie made on a popular book by the same name by literary figure, Krishna Dharabasi. The plot set on the Nepali society of the time about a century ago. The movie directed by Yadav Kumar Bhattarai features Garima panta , Desh Bhakta Khanal, Deepak Chhetri, Laxmi giri , Pralhad Khatiwada in main roles. The movie made on the banner of Media for Culture Pvt. Ltd. was made after an extensive research on the topic for about 7 years. Based on the novel, Late Deepak Alok had written the script of the movie – keeping the core of the book intact. The movie can be categorized as a historical art movie.

The movie presents the height of violence against women in ancient Nepal – Sati tradition. In ‘Jhola’ an young woman (Garima Pant) is married to a man 40 years senior to her. When her husband dies, Garima is kept to be burned alive with the dead body of her husband. She escaped the fire and hides in a cave. You can watch the movie to know what happens to Garima and how her small son helps her.

STRENGTH AND WEAKNESS

Although there are places for improvement, the scenes in the movie seem realistic and historical. The movie depicts the environment of East Nepal at the time of 100 years ago. The movie uses long shot to present realistic views of the time. The movie features traditional tools like dhiki, janto, madani, ranko, diyalo and so on.

The young people could get a glimpse of our past and the old people can feel the time they have went through in their childhood. So, both young and the old can enjoy the movie. In addition to Sati tradition, the movie also touches slavery (Kamara Kamari) tradition.

The cinematography is one of the best aspect of the movie. The director has also taken care to present the ancient environment. Most of the lighting during the shooting were also made by traditional lights like ranko, diyalo and fire place light. The dress used by the characters were also sewn by hand.  Background music was also composed of leaf music and traditional tunes. The director says that none of the artists have done make up. 

Garima Pant and the child artist have done a very realistic acting. Other actors have also justified their character. In a report, Garima got sick after the shooting of the scene in which she runs away by swimming in the river. Garima told that throughout the shooting she didn’t take a bath or applied makeup.

The director Yadav Bhattarai is a well known name in directing Nepali music videos. After directing about 900 music videos Yadav decided to make the movie on the story he read some 11 years ago. He read the book in BS 2059 and got the permission to make movie on it in BS 2063 from Dharabasi. The script writer Deepak Alok had died four years prior to the release of the movie.

‘Jhola’ is a historical movie to get a glimpse of the time of our fore fathers. The movie is a mirror of violence against women in ancient time. Apart from the entertainment, the movie offers insights into history, culture and tradition. ‘Jhola’ has it’s share of shortcomings but, it is a good historical movie. If you like fight, singing and dance, and fun in movies – this might not be the one you would love to watch.

Revisiting ‘Jhola’: Social commentary done right

Revisiting ‘Jhola’: Social commentary done right

Kshitiz Pratap Shah

‘Jhola’ has a special place in the history of Nepali cinema. Almost unanimously revered and even nominated as Nepal’s Oscar submission in 2014, it is seen as an outlier in its unique addressing of a dated yet complex social issue. When I first watched it as a 13-year-old (almost a decade ago), it created a stellar impression in my mind. What ‘Jhola’ did in comparison to other movies on social issues is introduce nuances to its subject matter and make us question whether we place the blame on the right entities for such social evils. Instead of leaning into melodrama and simplification, the movie, for me, was a way of questioning a linear, black-and-white way of thinking back then. Now, when I rewatched the film nearly after a decade, I still feel that a great part of that authentic, even challenging essence of the movie still remains.

‘Jhola,’ based on Krishna Dharabasi’s short story of the same name, follows a small family from the rural hilly region of Nepal in the 1940s. Our protagonist (Garima Panta) is identified not by her name but simply referred to as Kanchhi. Her husband (Deepak Chhetri) is nearly thrice her age and is on his deathbed. Kanchhi also has a young son (Sujal Nepal), who often acts as the audience’s surrogate in the movie. Between father and son, Kanchhi is shown as the all-caring mother, responsible for everyone’s well-being. In fact, we get to see this family dynamic for nearly a third of the film and focus on the love given to Kanchhi by these two. We are concerned not only for her well-being, or due to a moral obligation, but also because we realise how the ‘sati’ tradition—which mandated that a woman burn along with her dead husband—immediately and permanently breaks familial bonds apart.

Kanchhi’s husband insists on not letting Kanchhi go to ‘sati.’ He understands just how young she is and presents this wish to her and his young son personally. Yet, this idea, constantly appealed to by the son during the funeral, feed into deaf ears. The cultural links associated with the system are entrenched to the point of being detrimental. ‘Jhola’ thus showcases how even the perpetrators of the ‘sati’ tradition are merely enacting a deep-set norm in the social conscience, which reveals that the issue of ‘sati’ transcends personal morality.

One of the few moments where the movie falters is during the death of the father. While we know enough about Kanchhi and the issue at hand to feel sympathetic towards her, the funeral scene, in particular, relies more on telling rather than showing. We see the sister-in-law (Laxmi Giri) side with Kanchhi while consoling Ghanashyam, the son. Yet, her complaints about the hypocrisy of the ‘sati’ tradition feels like a modern insertion, something added in hindsight. While theoretically valid and poignant, the movie rarely visualises her ideas until the end, where we see the extent of the tradition through violence on another ‘sati’ victim.

However, ‘Jhola’ remains personal and grounded for the most part. A large part of this is due to the acting of the two leads. Panta as Kanchhi is toned down, but it works great. She seems not merely a victim but also someone capable of carrying the familial weight on her shoulders. She plays Kanchhi as someone experienced and emotionally stable beyond her years. This doesn’t mean her character doesn’t emote at all—there are scenes where she gives her all. Her crying after the death of her husband is one such moment, a rare instance where Kanchhi breaks down, dismantling the shield she has constructed so well so far.

Similarly, Sujal Nepal brings relatability to the character of Ghanashyam. His character shows compassion and loyalty to Kanchhi, but he rarely overplays his part.

The screenplay uses metaphors, flashbacks and dream sequences to its advantage. The dying father’s dream of seeing himself in fire foreshadows the burning of his wife and the sudden change it brings to his family. Yet, these additions also break the monotony of the present and justify character motivations in a refreshing way.

Most importantly, though, the movie structures itself to be constantly linked to the present, as we see the story of Kanchhi and Ghanashyam play merely as a flashback to the turmoils of suspicion, doubt and unjustified violence in the middle of the Maoist insurgency. Dharabasi, the author of the short story, also makes an appearance, largely to remind us how contextual such discriminatory social evils still are in our society.

In fact, the dowry system, chhaupadi and witch trials still happen in Nepal. The ending is bitter-sweet (and perhaps even ironic), as Dharawasi pays homage to Chandra Shumsher, who allegedly abolished the ‘sati’ tradition but led an oppressive regime that was plagued by other forms of exploitation. This juxtaposed ending ultimately does a great job of leaving the audience at an edge—forcing us to come to terms with the deep-set rot of injustices lodged into our social systems.

    Different than the story, the movie at the end does make a connection between inhuman Sati tradition and on the going problems of today.However, I still wish that the story and the movie was about a contemporary shameful practice rather than abolished traditions like Sati or slavery that the mankind has overcome today.Keeping my wish behind, I am going to critic some things about movie itself.
